SAAB photo. Saab 9-3 Aero at Oschersleben.

A Saab 9-3 Aero with the Viggen Body Kit is one of the rare vehicles on our roads. The Eros will become rarities in the next few years. The body kit from 9-3 Viggen makes the story even more exclusive. Friend Götz from Hamburg is one of the lucky owners of such a Saab.

Last winter, just like we did with our Silver Aero project, he was busy fighting the rust. Now the turbo Swede is on the road again and was visiting the Motorsport Arena in Oschersleben. Although, as Götz writes, the 9-3 Aero is not the fastest car on the track, but the most beautiful car in the paddock. Can I sign!

The 9-3 Aero rolls on the Alu 88 rims from Saab, which are very good for him. Optimized with NGK candles, Triboron and Ultimate 102 in the tank and Triboron in the oil, it runs really well. He is economical, relatively speaking. 230 Swedish turbo horses consume an average of 8.8 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. That in summer, with automatic air conditioning, traffic jams and always full acceleration. It's nice when you can also save on driving fun.

The topic Triboron, a typical Swedish innovation, will occupy us a bit more in the future. We will test what the additive can do and whether it really improves fuel efficiency and environmental footprint. Our Triboron endurance test will start soon, at the start is Mark, our frequent driver in the blog team with his Saab 9-3 TTID.

And there was something else. While the 9-3 Aero by Götz in Oschersleben cuts a fine figure, we are still working on improvements to our Aero. If you want to know how our Silver Aero project evolves, check out the Saab Youngtimer Blog.

  • The thing about the Triboron is very interesting. I work at the West Saxon University in Zwickau and we currently have a study project that deals with the effect of additional additives for fuel and engine oil on fuel consumption and emissions. However, we do not measure on the basis of real driving behavior, but within the framework of the NEDC - because of the comparability and reproducibility.

    Since I do not supervise the work, but only work in the same department, of course I do not know exactly which resources are used. Even if the additions are perhaps different and a different vehicle is used - Skoda Octavia I - I am still very curious to see which analogies can be made between your endurance test and our series of tests.

  • Hello Andre,
    is known and a good alternative to the new part. Real remedy but only create new parts and clarification of all sources of error. Unfortunately, it is always expensive when a condition is established as it were.
    For example, you can have a particle filter cleaned professionally (about 400 Euro) instead of 2.000 for a new part. In general: Stay away from particle filters Cars who drive no long-haul. Unfortunately affects all brands.
    Will be exciting the Triboron test.
    Greetings Gotz

  • Dear Jan,
    nice that your mechanical injection is running again, have saved through the bottle Triboron sure a lot of money.
    Triboron propellant booster is only for the tank! For the engine oil, there is another product the Triboron engine oil booster, you can also order by mail. Look at the Triboron page.
    Who drives an old Saab with the propellant booster can also do without lead-free additive.


  • Hi Tom,

    Triboron is great, so I got my resinous K-Jetronic back in good shape.

    Can the additive really be dumped into the oil?

    Best regards from Hamburg.


  • A very nice car. Keep well, they will not work anymore.

  • Hello Tom.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm looking forward to the result! Drive an 9-3TID.

    Have you ever dealt with the subject of swirl rapair as a substitute for the rod of the swirl flaps? I had some good experiences there a few weeks ago and also saved a lot of money.

    Greetings from Oldenburg.
