Saab 9-3 door sills - last chance

Articles on the blog can have consequences. From time to time for the Orio AB, who then has to part with things that have become dear. The door sills for the Saab 9-3 I are an example. By accident I became aware of the accessories and quite logically ordered immediately.

Shortly after the Article went online, emptied also this stock. Meanwhile, the sill protection for the classic 9-3 sold out in Nyköping, a post-production will most likely not exist. The last available parts has been secured for the fans blog supporters Stephan Individual and offers them in the Online-Shop at. The last is not just an optical win, this is the last chance for anyone who owns a Saab 9-3 I Convertible, Coupe or an 5-door sedan.

News from Orio Deutschland GmbH

There is an invitation from Orio Germany on my table. There are reasons for this, because Orio has moved to new, larger premises in the previous building. In the coming days I will therefore be in Eschborn, presumably I will bring some news and surprise from the visit. More in the next few days on the blog.

  • Rising prices for parts, ever thinning know-how and outdated technology when buying a new vehicle - I have also experienced this and were some of the reasons to draw a line with SAAB. I don't have to live with anything - the jug goes to the well until it breaks and a vehicle is replaceable. I didn't want another youngtimer tinkering with a vehicle that can no longer be used in everyday life. With this, SAAB has become history for me after 23 years and you have unnecessarily lost a loyal long-term customer.

  • Hopefully they will read along

  • No more bars. Sold out & too late.

  • I had the topic with my friend weeks ago. He is annoyed by Orio's webshop and politics, but says Orio in D can not do anything about it. Apparently they do what they want in Sweden and do not take any consideration. That's how I understood it.

    Write a mail to Orio D and express your dissatisfaction. That's the only way to change things!

  • What I do not understand:

    If German Saab partners cannot buy at the WebShop Scandinavia prices, why does it work with rims? The prices for the current, for example, the 18 ″ rim are exactly the same in German shops (Swedish parts, Stephan), English shops, Dutch shops and the SaabParts-Scandinavia shop. So certain parts (rims) are passed on by Orio for the same price, but not a few rubber strips ?!

    I do not understand this business policy. As GP362 already said, in Scandinavia everything is being sold off (and with luck we can get it via Maptun or Speedparts), but in Germany is ripped off?

  • where can I get the afford now and what do they cost ..

  • Rear panels are still "mass parts" that were installed on every 9k. It gets bad with parts that were seldom installed (e.g. control units for memory seats in the 9k) or if you drive a model that was a “niche product” even at Saab, e.g. 901 8V Turbo APC with LLK and Kat (was only built briefly). Sometimes you have to search for used parts worldwide. You can forget new anyway. I have already had parts sent to me from Canada, Cyprus and Hungary because they were not available elsewhere.

  • Of course that's the case with other brands as well. But what I meant is that you have to live with Saab, with what was produced until 2011. You just have to decide, I want my Saab, because nothing new available anymore, still the daily routine, or I want to use it up, or I make my Saab my hobby and for everyday life, I use something else. And as a hobby, that can quickly become expensive. For example, a VW driver can use a new Golf for everyday use and buy for fair weather rides, for example, a Golf I Convertible, in which the resulting attitude in special parts may not be so easy. What I meant is just that you sooner or later can not help but get a different vehicle for everyday life. Anyone who can afford it then due to existing space and financial resources, with his Saab always and certainly has a long hobby

  • Unfortunately that is correct. A classic webshop would have served the brand and the fans more. The rear panels are a very delicate example. Today, there are virtually no new parts, good used parts cost much more than Orio has called for the last new parts including Saab / Scania logo.

  • So I can not leave your comment. Special accessories are unfortunately scarce or no longer available. Especially for classics and youngtimers. But these are similar for the other brand from Sweden. The suitability for everyday use is given, wearing parts are partly cheaper than before 4 to 5 years.

  • The procedure of the ORIO webshop is quite questionable. With the sale of many high-quality genuine parts in turbo speed exclusively in the Scandinavian market, the brand is certainly not served.
    A reasonable price would certainly have kept many parts available longer - I only say rear panel 9000CS ... :-(.
    It is clear that a German dealer, if he has access at all, cannot sell the parts like on the ORIO “Grabbeltisch”.

  • That's the way things are with a car manufacturer that does not exist anymore. Parts are scarce and expensive. The future is looking for parts and paying the price or changing the brand. Sadly, driving Saab is becoming more and more of a hobby and disappearing from everyday mobility.

  • Hallo,
    I am a regular customer of Stephan. Can not understand the discussion. Here you can get a fair price. Even drive about 150 kilometers (easy) for embellishments or inspections.
    We drive special vehicles that are worth beautifying or preserving What special has its price. Nobody can deny the laws of the market (supply and demand regulate the price).

  • Point 1: The dealer has to make money. Point 2: The partner in D cannot realize the prices from the web shop for Scandinavia. So much for the "Saabotheke ..."

  • It's not for nothing that the FSH are also called Saabotheken ...

  • Unfortunately you are not right here. The webshop delivers only for Scandinavia, not for D. The prices, and here I try to express myself very diplomatically, are unfortunately not transferable to the Saab partners. I do not want to write more about that.

  • No matter what ... Sold out at Stephan, that's it. Read blog too late. Argggg 🙁

  • I have no idea where you got the 45, - Euro price, anyway I paid more.

  • Unfortunately, the Stephan-Individual team has raised the price from 45 € to a hefty 120 €. That's how it works, of course ...

  • The good news: The Saab Inside has not "disappeared", the new number of the customer magazine has only been delayed according to our information and comes to the readers a little later! In addition, you have good Saab things in preparation 😉

  • Customer care is a very sensitive issue at Orio ... Has Saab been written off? There are no longer any mailings, the customer magazine has disappeared, and you are not part of the Projektsaab. All of this in the last few months, without any explanation. You seem to be at least in contact with the blog, which I take as a positive indication.

  • Thanks for the information. and (I have to say it) shame on Orio, which in my opinion does not really do customer care and loyalty, quite the opposite of other well-known automobile manufacturers with their classic departments.

    That can really complicate the attitude of “classic” Saab's, if you sometimes have to search for spare parts for weeks.
