I have Sparco Pedals on mine. It certainly wont make them any farther apart, maybe a couple mm's if you place them purposefully further than OEM.

This has never bothered me.

I like the closeness from the gas to the brake, heal toe with only the big toe and side of your foot makes it easy to learn and do all the time.

Heel-toe's hard with size 12 shoes
When I went to the track I brought 3 pairs of shoes and tried them on 3 different runs. No joke.
Those probably added 50lbs alone =D

You think saabs are close drive a dodge viper. Damn things are so f-ing close. Numerouse times going for the clutch I would nick the brake, and that can be a hair raising experience on a 700 hp car at full revs.
You say clutch pedals? Do you mean clutch and brake together? Not sure if this would work, but you could get a bigger aluminum pedal for the clutch and offset it to the the left.

I'm kind of glad this subject came up...

Is there any way to fit a 9-3 'dead pedal' or something similar to a ng900?

Ive got the sparcos too. It took some work, but I did move them a little farther apart.
I still have a small bit of "trouble" if I wear the wrong footwear.
I'm size 11 1/2 EEE so my feets are kinda big.

My Sparco gas pedal is a little small. I had the shop actually trim the metal of the gas pedal so the Sparco would fit. I wear 10's, but I have very narrow feet.

Yep. Gas pedal is much smaller than the Saab OEM. I had to trim both top and bottom to get it to fit nicely.
It took some trial and error fitting, but I think the heel/toe placement is decent.

If you're interested, check ebay as sets of the sparcos turn up pretty often.

Yep yep.

I got a deal on mine from ebay. I paid like $50 when they retailed for twice that. It does not show well in pics, but they match the interior VERY well.

You forgot about the magnetic vaginal device as the main selling point.

I had the chance to drive Bullseye's Viggen and from what I can remember it was a nice improvement over the stock pedals in our Viggen. Ever since we got ours I was always a little put off by the pedal placement, once you get used to the position it isn't so bad but if you are wearing dress shoes or other wide ones it can be scary when you hit the brake with as much force as you would the clutch. I have a pair of Puma's that made the 9-3 pedals fit like a glove so if you have a shoe fetish you might want to think about picking up a set like these:
