The Saab 9-3 Griffin model 2012 would have been tighter, more modern and cooler rolled to us. The wheel design would have been refreshed. The Saab Parts AB offers in an international action Original Saab rims including, for the first time Alus of the vintage 2012.
How good the “Alu 88” rim looks on a Saab can be seen on Marcos Saab 9-3 Aero Coupe. Hardly delivered - already on the Saab. The rim design is perfect for a Saab, and “Alu 88” takes on the design of a turbocharger. Who believes in these pictures that the Aero is already 12 years old? The design is timeless, and the 9-3 drives like a new car. A test report from Marco will follow in the next few days!
Member of the 1st German Saab Club…
In Germany, about 60.000 Saabs are on the way. Of the 1. German Saab Club but has only a few hundred members. Actually a pity and incomprehensible. Because in the difficult time that our brand is going through, it would be good to be organized.
It cannot be because of the “Welcome Package”. Now that my friend Marco has two Saabs in the family, it was time to join the club. The welcome package came today! Saab stickers in all variants and several issues of the club magazine “SAABine” were there. Reading material for several evenings. Incidentally, “SAABine” is published three times a year with the latest Saab news. We will soon report in detail on the club, its new 1st chairman, the activities and future plans. Marco and his family's entry is a good thing and recommended for imitation.
The inevitable view of Trollhättan ...
Little is happening in Trollhättan. The Swedes are on their well-deserved summer break ... and it is still going on for a few weeks. NEVS introduced the announced HR manager. Birgitta Jäghem Löfving has her roots at Volvo, everything else would have been a surprise, and specific positions will be advertised from August. In an interview with the local newspaper, she expressed her joy at the challenge ahead. New technology, new product with a lot of technology and knowledge from Japan and China.
In the future, Birgitta Jäghem Löfving will move into an office in the Stallbacka. However, only if you have paid the purchase price completely. Before there is no access to factory premises. According to NEVS, this process should be completed during the summer.
Still open is the use of trademark rights. Negotiations are ongoing in Sweden and neither Scania nor Saab AB wants to comment on progress. If NEVS, or whoever, builds the Saab 9-3 in Trollhättan in the future, then the brand name would be extremely important.
And a sad loss ...
While my friend Marco is happy about his coupe, Horst has to complain about a loss. A nightmare, as he says. A few weeks ago, he emailed me pictures of his Saab 9-5 in top condition. On Sunday, a vehicle coming from a dirt road gave Horst and his Saab 9-5 the right of way. The result can be seen in the photo ...
Sad ! But the Saab passengers survived the accident without damage. OK then ! Only, it seems, in future we will have a Saab less that rolls over our streets.
Horst wrote: "... because of such people we drive SAAB drivers permanently with lights - but it's useless." That's the way it is. I keep my fingers crossed that everything will be fine with Horst and his passion for automobiles!
Keep on saabing and take care!
