He did it. In November we had over the Saab Griffin parts reported that Saab Service Kiel from Sweden. Parts of the blog team had backed up the radiator grille with the airplane logo. Reader Ulrich was a little more consistent than us and immediately decided on a completely new Saab 9-3 Griffin Aero front mask.
The operation in Kiel was successful, as you can see. The 9-3 in the Aero Trim looks fresher than the original Vector, and I especially like the more concise, larger Saab lettering. Ulrich kept the original parts and stored them. A very wise decision! He writes to us about his visit to Saab Service Kiel:
Based on the report on SAABBlog.net, I got in touch with the car dealership Lafrentz in Kiel and decided to have the Griffin bumper and radiator grille installed. Today was the day. It started at half past nine in the tranquil Bad Salzdetfurth. There was little traffic on the A9, cruise control on and at 7 km / h leisurely to Kiel. First drive past the car dealership Lafrentz, the entrance really comes IMMEDIATELY after the departure, TomTom wasn't prepared for that. But in the second attempt it worked! I drove to the courtyard and was amazed. A white SAAB 130-9, a SAAB 4-9 II and even a 5-9 II station wagon! In the showroom I was also the cause of my enthusiasm for SAAB: a 5 convertible built in 900, top restored! I had seen one of these for the first time at the IAA in 1992, but the price was beyond good and bad! But I digress.
Friendly welcome, handing over the car keys and then waiting. But I was happy to wait, because I could use the time and look at the wonderful vehicles! After a short time, Mr. Lafrentz joined and I got a lot of information about SAAB! I am enthusiastic about his commitment to SAAB. He took a lot of time and I didn't even notice how the time passed. Suddenly he said “and there comes your car, looks good” and he's right here too. My last doubts about the "upgrade" disappeared when I saw my car! Everything done right! In the spring, the new rims from the SAAB campaign will be added in the summer and I have a new car!
I enclose a picture. In my experience today I can only recommend the car dealership Lafrentz in Kiel. If I had enough space I would have been weak with the blue 900 convertible, or with the 9-5 II or the 9-4X….
Is this something to add? I do not think so. Dear Ulrich, Thank you for your report and always a good trip with the 9-3 (Griffin Aero) Cabriolet!
