If it's no secret, how much did all that joy cost? Also, the back spoiler, is it a stock Aero kit or an aftermarket piece? I also love the color schemes, with the black matte grill.

Mine is nothing special. VECTOR with a 1.9tid engine and 150hp. Since it was a sport anniversary model, it came with an Aero body kit, suspension and exhaust. I am exploring possibilities what can be done to it, but not overly excited considering it's a diesel.
Thanks man! Appreciated.
To be honest, I'm not sure. I think the wing came on all models with the 2.3l engines. If I recall the spoiler on the Aero model looks similar to the Hirsch one.
This one is just a Linear but with the Griffin interior, seats and trim.

I'm not sure all-in-all how much I've put into it, and frankly I don't even want to know. :D But I'd say close to $8000 with the engine and suspension modifications, not counting in the wheels and rims.

Ah, well. I bet it provides plenty of torque.
I really do love the NG 9-3's, they look super classy and are super fun to drive even when stock.

Have you looked into getting it chipped? I'm not sure how easy it is for you to find someone able to do it. (Hence I live in Sweden so plenty of tuners here.)

Unfortunately, if I had a stronger engine, registration fees would double in Serbia. But I was thinking of getting it chipped, maybe go for a safe option of 20%. There are tuning shops but they just use maps they get from Sweden or other countries haha.

The car is still fun to drive. It pulls good and handles nice.

There's some other things I want to get done first. The condition of eco leather seats (vector cream seats) in my 9-3 is bad, trying to find a replacement. Think you can help a Saab brother out? Also thinking about retrofitting satnav.

Get a cheap Android tablet and buy the plastic covers to fill in the gaps around the panel if you're doing the satnav fit. Aslong as you can find a way to be able to use it without having the engine turned on and not draining the battery, it's the most effective way and way cheaper than buying ones that are already built to look like a proper in-car screen.

lol dude I drive my family's car, the Merc Benz C220 CDI. My uncle still has the car but the transmission is kaput and a transmission for a Ritmo Abarth doesn't fly off the shelf.
And am I the only one here who likes my car plain, simple and dumb? No rims or exhaust or anything like that..
