We exchange the door step lights for the Saab 9000

Entry lights, would have sounded suspiciously like luxury and was not with the thinking of the Folkhemmet (Volksheim) coined Swedes generation compatible. Hence the door security lights.
Incidentally, Lancia, Fiat and Alfa Romeo, which together with the Saab formed the Tipo 4 project, stood by the touch of luxury. But that was also Italy, where things appear in a flattering light when taken less seriously.
The 9k was the first Saab to have ambient lighting, as we would say today, and this safety feature. The result is still good today, the active safety signaling and the illumination do not have to hide from modern vehicles.
