SAAB 9-5 II. Interiors Kit Meshed Metallic.

It just looks better, feels better. The interior of a Saab 9-5 II, upgraded with an interiors kit in "meshed metallic" from the model year 2012, is nobler. The Saab is more upper class, the interior is where it should have been from the beginning. The great Swede is just more fun.

Who wanted to upgrade his Saab 9-5 II, had a problem. The nappa leather kit at Hirsch Performance - sold out. The Original Saab Meshed Metallic Kit? Like so much Trollhättan we wanted, never went into production. After a long preparation, the solution is now here. With much commitment from different sides, the first series of the seven-part interior kit was launched. The manufacturer is the original supplier of the Saab Automobile AB, the distribution takes place exclusively over the Saab support point in Kiel, the Car dealership Lafrentz.

Compared to the leather retrofit solution, the kit originally produced for the model 2012 series offers the precision of the series. An advantage, because in detail, the functionality of all controls is retained, which was not the case with the Hirsch performance solution to 100%. The first edition is now almost completely installed in vehicles, a few copies are still available. The second edition is in preparation.

Contact person for the kit - in my opinion something that you absolutely must have in the 9-5 II - is Markus Lafrentz. The price is okay with 849,00 € for the seven-part set. The retrofitting itself is time-consuming, first empirical values ​​show that a workshop must start here four hours. An 9-5 sports car with upgraded interior is owned by the dealership and will also be on site at the Saab Festival in Trollhättan.

    Brief comment on the statement concerning the lack of operability with the Hirsch-Performance solution. I have been using these in my 1-1 II since 2 9 / 5 years, in the carbon leather version. Shortly after the installation, I had concerns about the usability, but fortunately these concerns did not come true. But the look and feel is much better than in the original state.

    Will contact Mr. Markus Lafrentz. I've been looking for this retrofit solution for so long.
    Thanks Tom.

    So with working hours we would probably be in the range of 1200 Euro ... for the quality and the optics that is absolutely fine.

    Too bad that there is no such thing for the 9-5 of the old series (1998) 🙁

    Absolutely cool!
    Hopefully you can also send the interior kit to Switzerland.
    Have been looking for something like that since I have my darling 9-5 II V6 (Jan.2013).
    This is the ideal consolation, as I would also like to go to the SAAB festival, but 3500 km back and forth, within 3 days?
    Even to me crazy ...
    Have fun at the festival !!
    And thanks for this wonderful blog, thanks Tom

    PS: Without your blog, I probably would not have bought 9-5 II ...

    Looks good, but I'm still waiting for the green acrylic fairing that was featured in the 9-4x and 9-5x prototypes.

    That was a real breakthrough in interior design for me, which has massively changed my view of things. Since that time wood, leather or carbon stuff is just old fashioned and kitsch for me.

    Stupidly, I would need that even for a 9 5 I
