NICE. the CF dash is hot, right? I love mine. no more wood. can't wait for a review of the stage 3.

iwantaviggen, the CF dash is on ebay for anywhere from 200-275 or so, or try genuinesaab, I think they have them way cheaper than saabcatalog.

CF shift knob for manual trans no longer produced. If you know where one can be purchased PLEASE let me know. It makes no sense because Saab is really starting to push the CF dash in the 9-5 making it a factory option but now the knob is unavailable. Another wierd thing is for 9-5, they still offer the rear door pulls but not the front. Makes lots of sense...

good luck trying to find that stuff.

I got the dash, shifter (auto) and door pulls on ebay, and i think I got the last door pulls ever to be made. The seller could not come through for me and provide the second second of door pulls (my car is 4 door) so now I have two cf pulls in front and two stock in the back. He said they were in stock, then they did not come for a month and he said "UPS lost them" then he said "UPS destroyed them and he is getting some from sweden so it will take a while"... then another few weeks I called and he is clueless, but I had called Saab myself to see what the hell was going on. Saab said they don't carry the pulls because of "a supply/customs problem", but I asked around to dealers and Saab resellers and got the real scoop- I heard it is really that they were too poor quality and so they stopped making them. kind of like how they bailed on that nice 9-3 black pearl grill...

I even went so far as to beg a guy selling a viggen with CF pulls to take them off and sell them to me. no dice. Too bad, they really look great and finish the look when you have such a sweet dash. maybe mr yankton will be able to help? i just hope his CF will match the saab factory CF close enough. that would solve all our problems!

how is that possible? I just called three days ago and they said they are not in stock, they will not be getting any more (EVER!), and they have eliminated them from the catalog. unavailable !

if they actually show up let me know what you did to get them/where you got them because I need a set of pulls and no one has them
