It is decidedly too warm and no Saab Turbo weather. It has 32 degrees in the Rhine-Main area, and in Bamberg, where I was with my Saab Turbo X today, it's not cooler either. The Saab got new ignition coils, and by accident was also the Turbo X by Adrian at Saab center Bamberg in the workshop. His Saab gets, among other things, new ignition coils.
Adrian has consistently thought through the optical Turbo X idea “Black is back” to the end. His “Darth Vader Turbo X” is now almost completely dark, even in the interior. The small chrome rings on the ventilation nozzles have disappeared and the silver insert on the automatic lever is tinted. Looks cool and there are pictures of Adrian's Turbo X at Saab-Cars.de. Adrian, it was great to meet you!
Saab Zentrum Bamberg is a family business and a traditional Saab partner. The Saab Spirit lives and customer loyalty is more personal than anywhere else. For lunch, the barbecue was fueled for employees and family and also the blogger did not go hungry back north. Thanks to Bamberg for so much hospitality!
Our Turbo X is now running the way it should, and the return flight, partially over the highway, was a typical Saab treat. Sovereign overtaking on the road, a Saab domain, is great fun! Now we are ready for the International Saab Meeting in Spa!
Let's remember the rim action of the Saab Parts AB? The campaign was such a great success that many types of rims are no longer available, or only at the regular price. The campaign stocks have melted like the snow in summer, with the coveted Alu 88 rim the complete campaign goods are sold. If you are still looking for rims, you should talk to your Saab partner, because only they can check what is available or not. There has been no price list that has been asked repeatedly in the last few days - the pricing is up to the dealers. And the blogger also has no insight into what is and is not in stock in Nyköping.
Still the inevitable view to Sweden. Who made bets on NEVS closing their deal on time? I did not bet on it, and so it is. The local newspaper, TTELA, reports that the deal is being delayed and the takeover of Saab's assets is due sometime in August, possibly even in September. So far, Swedish friends have not spent a penny on NEVS either way, and September has long been considered the month of the decision. So nothing happened, and it certainly was not a surprise.
