mcrowley Wow, thats one sharp looking car. I recall when I went to test drive the 9-3ss they had one of those in a dark purple-ish color....very very nice car.

JK There is one that I always see around my house...a 2003 with all the goodies that you could want (minus the 2.3 viggen motor). It seems that SAAB likes to dump all of the unused specialty parts on their cars toward the end of the model run (just before they come out with new body styles). They are sweet cars, essentially a viggen in appearance with the slightly more durable 2.0 HOT motor and generally with automatic transmissions.

Cool car!

Cpenning623 yea, for 2003, the LAST year of this body style, they gave the SE convertibles all the viggen goodies

so to answer your question, yes, thats what they did.

Viggen? SE? Aero?

Ok, I was recently looking at various saabs on ebay and I was wondering what kind of Saab is this?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2003-...QQcmdZViewItem

Rims seem to be like the 9-3 Aero, bodykit and seats seem to be viggen(except the viggen emblem on seats), engine is 2.0l and its an auto??

I was wondering since this was the last year of that body style if they gave viggen attributes to SE's? Sorta like they did on the 1998 9000's?
