Monday, March 05, 2012 11:56 AM
Welp after a long 4 year wait of debating I finally did it.. I sold my j's because I was sick of driving junk and got this beautiful 2004 saab 9-3 arc with 67k on the odo.... I'm so in love with this thing.... More pics to come.

I'm a fan, almost just like my old 04 Aero. Have any plans for it?

Take it as a personal attack if you want, but Cavalier's ARE throw away cars, he has a good point with the upgrading! My only concern is the scarce parts market and lack of factory support or warranty with SAAB, but they're such nice cars!

Yep cavs are.. after everything I've had to replace on my yellow cav I was done. Yes the support for saab does suck. I have zero regrets getting rid of my cavs....

Looks good!

After driving the same car for years, it's pretty easy to get tired of them...as it is, most of the few I've found at junkyards are pretty much totally used up...


Part of them big reason mine is still stock now....

Lol. I wish I had the time and will to keep the cavs but I don't. I work at a Toyota car plant so I work on cars all day so when it comes tine to work on the cavs I didn't want to. But the yellow cav went to a good friend of mine and i told him I have dibs on it when he sales it lol.

ok guys i did my first mod to the saab LOL.... lowered it on Eibach springs...







Wanna see why i had to swap springs... the 03-06 9-3's had a issue with the front springs breaking due to road salts etc building up in he spring purch. well mine had a "fractured" spring as my dealer put it.... looks more like broken to me...

I had a 06 9-3 Arc convertible for a little while. Loved the car, hated the lack of power, and aftermarket support is not great by any means. Get an OptiFlow intake for that thing. You'll be glad you did!!

Did the spring cross reference to a G6, Aura, or Malibu?
