Spring shine for Saab

Perhaps a little symbolism is involved in the spring action of the former Saab Parts, now Orio AB. The old, faded or damaged Saab emblems are exchanged for new ones for free.

An interesting thing, I think. Alone from the financial equivalent. Let's recalculate ... for an original logo on the front and a logo on the back, depending on the model, you're welcome to hike 50,00, 60,00 or more over the counter of the friendly Saab partner. That alone could be reason enough to have the inspection due at the Saab Partner carried out. Besides, let's face it: a Saab with a blank logo in front of us is a picture of misery.

The costs for the emblems are borne by the Orio AB branch in Eschborn. In plain language: you take money to get us into the workshops. What a kind of appreciation to the customer and thus more than a real equivalent. As already during the last action there is again a list of participating Saab partners on the internet. This gives transparency, which is sometimes sorely needed. Because not everywhere, where the Saab shield hangs, there is commitment behind it. Spare parts, available in Sweden, are then indicated as not available - because the desire to deal with brands and customers has been lost at some point. We are spared some disappointment by the list when we land again somewhere where we do not want to know anything about the action. The committed dealers, however, are actively supported.

Let's talk again about the symbolism that may be wanted, but which could also be coincidence. For about three years, we are without new car supplies. Nevertheless follows from the Eschborn Saab Tower action on action. Reliable, precise as a Swiss clockwork and every time with a new, Saabian idea. Would we be surprised if the Saab team from Hesse would soon also sell new cars? If we were not, we would take it for granted! The German branch of Orio AB is Saab for us, and who else in Germany would be so close to dealers and to the community? But we are not that far yet, that is pure speculation!

Spring shine 2014 is under the impression of the positive events of the last months. In Trollhättan again vehicles run off the line. The auto show in Beijing is scheduled for April, and the brand is starting something like a new spring. It will not be an easy way for Saab in the future, more of a mammoth task, everything is only on start.

Saab is on its way, and the spring action is a beautiful symbol to now flag our brand and make the griffin with the Saab logo on our vehicles shine.

  • I got mail from my Saab workshop on Saturday. Everything explained nicely and even with fixed prices, which are perfectly fine.
    My Saab workshop is far more than 20 km away from me, but since I bought my car 2010 there, I have not regretted the decision for a day.

  • Really CLASS idea!
    I know how to do SAAB, which drives without logo ... does not look good! Will recommend this webside as info, the SAABians themselves may act ... Know the "problem" of my old SAAB's until I asked the friendly man at the car wash to avoid the emblems with the steam jet! Small hint, so far great effect! Nice day yet!

  • Very meaningful action! The emblems on the tailgate dissolve again or become dull. Cool idea!

  • Great idea!
    ("Unfortunately" I have already replaced my two slightly flaked logos last year)
    I had to hear from acquaintances already sayings like "Your logo fits the brand"! ;-(

    However, I am particularly pleased about the "Participants" list.
    So you can see what "dedicated" dealers / workshops are so close.
    For example, my current one is not included. One in which we used to be short - and I thought she was no longer an "official" one - is.

  • I was very happy about the post. From Saxon point of view, I can warmly recommend Zimpel and Franke in Zwickau.
    Competent employees with great service. Keep it up.
    I like to go there.

    • Only that one sees nothing more in Zwickau except for the Saab sign at the door. That's why I'm wondering the more that they are there but Dresden zb. Not.

  • I have received two postes from the old and new FSH - and I am surprised that both flyers have different offers and also prices

    • The partners set their prices individually, as well as determine the scope of the offered action on their own.

      • I think it's great and I'm pleased that the team in Eschborn offers dealers this flexibility.

  • That comes to me three months too late

    But only costs 35 Euro and some fumble to replace it ... even in the old SAAB / Scania version.

    • That's not a bad idea !! @ PhiBo I have that in front of me in the old SAAB / Scania variant. SAAB greetings Wolef

      • Dear Wolef,

        the launch had been no intention, but rather a combination of age and close distance of the spray lance. In addition, a SAAB / Scania emblem was already present.

        If you are looking for which, Skandix there are, for the front and back - as I said, 35 Euro are due.


        • @PhiBo until last year was ours also ok and we were surprised that the others were peeled off! One day my wife came home from work and only had half an emblem on the hood! On the trunk lid it starts to buckle but at a 931 Cab by Bj 99 it is allowed! SAAB greetings Wolef

  • My dealer is here! Great idea and fresh shine for my SAAB!

  • And when does the action come to Switzerland?

    • According to the current state, Switzerland plans its own actions and there are individual actions with the partners.

      • Well then I'm curious ...

  • Did not Dresden start its own campaign last year?
    With that you could really save.

  • Unfortunately, Thuringia is not represented in the list ... :-( Until when is the action?

    • Until the 31.5.

  • After the prospectus of my FSW, which is back for the first time in a long time

  • Are the mobilforum Dresden and Etehad in Halstenbek no longer considered dedicated dealers, or why are they not on the list?

    • Both are committed, but still do not participate. That too is there.

  • Hello

    Great action
    How does it look like in Austria?
    The emblem just happened to fly me.

    • Austria is also present, the list of participating Saab partners is available here.

      • Hi Tom

        True, found today the folder in my post! I am glad that Ö is also there, although VERY poorly ....

        Good trip from Vienna to all Saabs out there!

  • Hello Tom,

    You forgot the great sticker. My friend had opened the letter in front of me, and said to my son, but dad will be happy.
    I'm looking forward to my visit at Stephan Automobile in Vienenburg !!!
    Great action like every year.

    Greetings from the resin

  • @ Tom

    Thanks for the info.
    My SAAB partner in Spittal is thank God
    Our 9-3 Coupe will certainly look great with a new SAAB logo.
    This is how spring can come .......
