In the price list for the model year 2012 she was under the code RV-CAM ordered. The rear-view camera for the new generation Saab 9-5. And also "mein"Saab 9-5 II sports car, which I was allowed to pilot 2011 for a few days, had one. What's not the worst idea for a full-size 5-meter car!
Thanks to good contacts to Sweden, Saab Service Kiel was able to obtain the original parts for the retrofitting. Among other things, because also various accessories around the 9-5 II sedans and sports combinations found in recent months on the car dealership Lafrentz their way to the customers. You see, the business model "Saab" can work. The fans reward it and take many hundreds of kilometers to get there.

But back to the rear view camera. It is inconspicuously integrated in the right section of the bar of the striking LED light strip. It only becomes visible when you look at the groin from below in a kneeling position. Otherwise you see - nothing! And that's exactly how it should be. The installation and integration is done in Kiel, prices are on Inquiry, The result pleases. In the color monitor of the navigation system, the rear environment appears, making parking easier.
The first retrofits have already run in Kiel, the availability of the original Saab parts is naturally limited. Because you never made it into series production, which is somehow regrettable. Because, as I said, the reversing camera would have been a good investment.
