SAAB community. Saab 900 theft in Leipzig.

A call for help arrives from Leipzig ... maybe someone from our readership can help! Last year, three classic Saab 900s, including a convertible and a full turbo, were stolen in the Saxon metropolis. Another Saab 900 Turbo 16 S was stolen today in the south of Leipzig.

Saab 900 Talladega
Saab 900 in Talladega red

It is an 92er model, Talladegarot with Airflow kit and light gray leather interior. The two front Airflow elements are missing. Striking are the English windscreen wipers with left rest position. The Saab has brand new Hella headlamps, a Bilstein B6 landing gear, rear wiper, Abbott Motorsport stickers, newly refurbished tunnels and a Carlsson double tube.

The license plate is L-TU 900. Apparently, classic Saab are being stolen in Leipzig, and so we ask our readers to help Hagen, the owner of the Saab 900, get his Swede back. The Saab scene is small, a Talladega Red 900 is conspicuous. Airflow kits are rare, especially when selling the front part of the planking is missing. Eventually, the vehicle or parts appear on the Internet at the known platforms. The exact vehicle data are stored at saab-cars.de.

Our blog is not only read in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. We have Saab fans in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Russia who are our guests again and again as readers. We ask everyone for your help to prevent the theft of classic vehicles. The blog team is happy to receive information.

  • Hello people,
    until today no trace of my Saab. Unfortunately it will stay that way. To howl!
    Thank you for your attention and compassion.

  • Sorry the topic of theft!

    Several items were stolen from us in the past, including a caravan from the campsite that was immediately confiscated at the customs border during the 90s, and later a vehicle that was for sale that was found dismantled in eastern foreign countries after a few months (body no ) and a few years ago material from vehicles was stolen several times from our closed area, including whale details "torn off" (yes torn off with corresponding signs of damage, be it on the vehicle as well as on the whale detail itself, which were finally confiscated at customs, but unfortunately broken!) , Vent cover and several Aero16 ″ rims dismantled (with the vehicles on the ground), as well as the entire front including the bonnet on a CS ... 🙁 ... !!!

    In some cases, the customs authorities reported shortly afterwards that the material was confiscated at the border during the transfer to "Eastern Europe", including one of my damaged (missing a corner!) And written on (customer sticker available!) Whaletail found (but unfortunately broken in 2 parts due to enormous tear off)! The thieves had nothing to do directly with Saab, they simply took away what was rare and needed again for vehicle repairs and the whole thing probably on behalf of someone ... so the statements in the police protocols!

    As sorry as I myself have good Saab friends from Eastern Europe, but since the opening of the borders, there is unfortunately an uncontrolled immigration and emigrate partly well organized theft gangs, the intended goods stolen for whatever purpose

    Other cases, which are also gladly handled and tend to come to light with difficulties, are the theft of certain vehicle types / colors, which are used instead of the reconstruction of vehicles of the same type that have been involved in an accident ... & Youngtimer lovers, we encountered a case among our customers whose mysterious CV was noticed, which was transferred partially dismantled and used by poor foreign, partly non-German-speaking body workers, in a free, unofficial workshop, be it at night as well as on Sundays, for the reconstruction Exchange of the body number was welded together again! This case was finally uncovered within a few days with a lot of effort and assertiveness by private individuals in order to submit the necessary evidence to the police! If a week had passed, this case would probably not have come to light that easily and the vehicle would have been sold at who knows what high prices!

    As you can see, unfortunately everything is possible and impossible to find, because if there is a merit behind it, it does not deter certain organizations from doing dirty business!
    Accordingly, the request to all active readers: Eyes open and forward suspicious observations!

  • Sympathy.
    My Saab 900 16V was stolen last year at the 28.04.12 in the southern suburb of Leipzig and rediscovered by the police in Stötteritz in June. Hardly anything broken. Maybe you have luck. I keep my eyes open.

  • Thanks, people! So far I haven't heard anything, unfortunately. And to be honest, I don't have much hope either. If I buy another 900, I will install a GPS tracker and an alarm system. I'm going on vacation now. Is sorely needed ...
    Happy holiday to you all!

  • When I see him, I stop him, take off his skin and hang her in the rear window for deterrence.
    The 900 is then transferred to Leipzig.

    Yes're right. But actually, the whole thing was just a nice side effect.

    My 6 CD changer broke last year and I found no substitute (or completely overpriced and overseas).
    But then I found in the network a good and comfortable iPod solution using Kenwood adapter.

    But since I've never owned an iPod, but still had an “unused” iPhone lying around, I just connected it. And because of that I got this monitoring function as an addition “free of charge”! 🙂

  • Why is it so “complicated”? There are extra small devices that can do a lot more and are not necessarily dependent on an Internet connection or even a provider. 😉 Google times e.g. for TK-5000. Can also be permanently installed. With very chic functions ...

    An old or cheap Android cell phone could also be used to “build” something, eg with the Avast app, which has the “old” excellent TheftAware in it. There are also other tools - it makes sense that they can be controlled via SMS, Inet only as a better fallback. When you are abroad at the latest, you often get vinegar with the Internet or you become poor!

    Advantage of pure GPS devices: The GPS modules are often better, i.e. more sensitive. Better under a lot of sheet metal ... 😉 And also more functions that are tailored to it, such as geo-fences, motion detection, etc ...

  • Au cheek.
    Hagen, I hope you get your sweetheart again !!!!
    I keep my fingers crossed !!!!

    By the way, my buddy once told me, "Who wants to steal such a quirky old pensioner car?" smiled when I told him that thanks to the integrated “hidden” iPhone (instead of the usual CD changer and with a MultiSIM) my 9-5 SC always has automatic GPS location via Apple's iCloud service!
    And as long as pot thieves cannot find the part (is not visible) or all techn. Tear things out, it would work and always locate the car “live”.
    I also hope a little that you wouldn't suspect such a solution in a car that is over 10 years old. 😉

    Since thieves stole his “stuffy gray sedan A6” (even with only fabric seats) from my friend's front door at night last year, he hasn't said anything negative about my solution. 😉

  • That is really amazing! Since you have to be afraid of his 900er as a supercar.
    I'm thinking about a steering wheel claw !?
    @Hagen: I wish you luck, that the car reappears.

  • well ... are already more than one ... believe me!

    ps if so many are deliberately disappearing ... you couldn't list the VIN numbers.
    Maybe even all of the stolen ones ... easy to find on the internet in a list of contacts.

  • Oh that's bitter. Have my sympathy. I think I would go crazy. Hopefully they get caught and the SAAB reappears undamaged. Keep your fingers crossed.

    PS: I'm on the highway a lot. If I see something I'll let you know.

  • Why would Saabs be stolen? I don't understand ... By the way, you also have friends in Bulgaria, at least one 🙂

  • Thank you Tom, for your support!
    I thank all readers of the blog for their attention.
    Happy Easter!
    Hagen
