Do you happen to know the numbers for the Beige or sand beige interior.

i just noticed that the first picture that you see when you open this thread is of a red saab with a dealership in the background, i noticed that in the lower grill it says "saab" now is that custom, or is it what the intercooler says, or what is it? because i really like that, and want that on my car.

THX for the Welcome.

The sand viggen interior was never available in Europe, therefore I 've only seen it on pictures. I believe it was available from MY02 in the US, so it's pretty rare.

The dealership in the background is a peugeot dealership :? Most of the time he only has ugly cars, so that's why I put some nicer ones in front of his garage :wink: The Saab thing in the lower mesh is the emblem that sits on your trunk. I had it laying around since I debadged mine and tried it there. I must say that I already took it back off.

Marky,

It seems like you did some pretty good mods on that 98 but only getting 290hp? It seems like you should be well into 300hp with the bigger turbo and ecu tuning. Or is that 290 hp at the wheels? That would be very impressive.
