    Default My new Saab 9-3,,,,, a vectra at heart



    ok so after the slighly euro vectra c dti i started looking about a new car that was simliar in size, a big nicer to sit in and drive than the vectra so after looking at a few different cars i travalled to england to buy this saab 9-3

    its a

    saab 9-3 vector sport 2.2 tid
    full sports spec with c.coded bumpers, skirts and front fogs
    spotless cream and grey leather interior
    full saab service history
    built in handsfree
    metallic navy color - different than usual greys, silver an black, one of the reasons why i bought it was the navy and cream scheme it has

    after getting it home last monday, within a week i made the following changes

    - lowered
    - 18'' merc alphards with 225/35 tyres
    - brakes serviced, cleaned and painted
    - oil, fuel filters changed and checked
    - mudflaps fitted
    - good clean

    and drove out of the garage on saturday evening in time for UCS on the sunday morning..... good times

    future plans are

    - twin exit exhausts (already bought)
    - metro plates
    - xenon kit possibly
    - some tasteful black and navy stickers once i decide what theme im going with this

    photos below show my journey home through wales, stopping off in a car park in the snowdonia mountains for a pee break

    enjoy and as usual C&C welcome




















    and here she is now....

    Love the wheels. I used to have a 05plate 1.8t cabrio and loved it. Don't put any magic trees near the dash like my wife. The coating started to come of the dash and the button don't wear very well but I would get another one tomorrow but I have a 9-5 now.

    Those wheels are awesome. Do you have the old wheels as well? I would buy those if they are 17".
