    Default Is there commonality with Saabs?

    I saw on here somewhere that the Vec shares the floorpan with a Saab. Thinking of this I was wondering if other parts from Saabs could fit a Vec. I spotted some smart alloys on an 06 Saab last week and have been wondering ever since. Would they be a straight forwards swap over?

    Discs and pads are a direct fit you say?
