^^ Stage 1 05 would be cheaper than an 06. Only costs 3-400 to but a used AccessPort.
Price is terrible on the first one. I am now seeing 90-100k cars for as low as $8k. I think I even saw a 50k 06' for 10,500 on the board recently.i'm actually not really worried about hp numbers and whatnot right now, i'd just like to have a nice car that i can enjoy stock and will fare well and be easy enough to drive through winters.
looking around on craigslist
X2.Definitely do not get an 05 in auto. That's the mistake I made, and the only reason I sold it. For around city, the turbo lag combined with that transmission was unbearable.
That last one could be good. He mentions 17's which would be good and has pictured WRX 16's so I hope those are his winter wheels/tires.
If you are serious, I would put more effort into the 9-2x board. They seem to have about 1-3 cars pop up for sale a week. People there are reasonable when it comes to asking prices...they know what they have. It's not Saabnet pricing.under no circumstances will i buy an automatic car, i used crazedlist to search the whole north east and those are the only 3 i found on craigslist

I get so much shit when I post about car purchases I plan on making 6 months from now lol.yeah, still just browsing though. i don't want to buy a car until after carlisle. i'm going to take a ride to the local saab dealers to see what they have on their lots and hopefully test drive at least one car. that all depends on how the snow is this weekend. thanks for your opinions and info guys.
02' was the last year except for 03's verts.so i went and checked out one dealer lot today, all they had was 2 '05 linears, and poorly optioned, only one had heated seats and both were auto. i hope it doesn't take forever to find a decent deal on what i want. maybe i'll have to resort to private sellers.
i did spot an '03 OG9-3 se off in a corner, all black leather interior, for $10k, but that was also an auto.
i thought the OG's ended in '02? maybe it was a very late '02?
The Saab had a STI steering rack, a bit more sound deadening, and slightly different suspension tuning. Aside from the body work front and rear, seat fabric-color, everything else is identical.there's a couple pics on the first page of this thread. they were only made for the '05 and '06 model years. it's a subaru wrx wagon disguised as a saab. same drivetrain as the wrx, but some things on the 9-2x aero are upgraded. IIRC mainly just the suspension. the front fascia looks a lot better than the wrx too.
