I personally have no way of knowing if either of these the following is true. this is not an attack on anyone, just possible scenarios that have been alleged or alluded to by others here or on other Saab boards...

-there are no aftermarket parts or few Saab products available, creating opportunity for someone to sell items at a premium that is far more than they cost (like a $700 delivery pipe)
-lack of options opens door for competitors to sell inferior or untested products at a low price to get volume sales

Of course any vendors will defend their product and have reasons why not to buy the others. Too bad we can't have each vendor who has a part that competes with the other to donate a free one, to an independant party not affiliated in ANY way with any company, and has nothing to gain...and do factual, no nonsense testing with numbers, facts, no opinions... a real comparision. dyno numbers, A/F ratio, temp readings, anything that pertains... quality of materials, fit and construction...even a long term update if the part is on there a long time, to see how it holds up.

I would really like to save money to make room for more mods, but at the same time don't mind paying extra for a quality, tested product that will not fail and not need to be sent back. I am also interested in how a product holds up and performs several years down the line...

so is there any way to accomplish an unbiased comparison? So far all i read is "buy mine, it is better" "don't buy his, it sucks" and "I bought mine here, had it on for 3 days and no problems yet"...

and most who buy a certain brand stick by it "I got a XX brand thingie and it is great" (understandable if they are pleased with the product) but they have not compared to other brands so it is not worth as much as "i tried both and this was better because..."

make sense?
