Yes you have read correctly. It is time to say goodbye. After nearly 7 years and plenty of 320.000 kilometers I will sell my beloved 9-3 sports suit tomorrow.
The sports suit came to us in 2005 as one of the first in Germany and then replaced my 9-3 Sedan. This had already covered 12 kilometers after a good 65.000 months and was actually only intended as a “temporary solution” until the start of production of the station wagon.
The 1,9TID is very well motorized as a construction site vehicle. Nevertheless, after a short time he received an increase in performance from the Hirsch company. With almost 180PS you are fast on long journeys and with some contemporaries on the autobahn it caused astonishment one or the other. Despite the frowned upon linear trim with tinted windows, automatic climate control and a navigation system, the car was fully equipped for me. Little by little, some optical improvements were made to the interior. So I replaced the controls on the steering wheel and the bezel of the gear lever with those from a Vector. A cup holder and a sliding central armrest were also added. It was 7 very nice years. A time in which the sports suit only had 2 minor accidents through no fault of their own and hardly any defects and repairs worth mentioning. We bought it in the Saab center in Freital, it was always looked after and serviced in Mobile Forum Dresden, Actually a change was already planned for middle 2011 and already ordered, unfortunately it turned out very differently. Therefore, the decision to continue the sports suit and wait. But now an offer came from Dresden where I could not resist. But nothing more will be revealed here. The “new one” will come tomorrow and hopefully the weather will be followed by a photo shoot and a report !!
After all, the sports combination remains very close to us. We have infected our neighbors with the SAAB virus !!
