A little Christmas gift II

This one’s a little bit of fun and was a nice little surprise for me.

The very industrious gent is a guy named Fredrik and he thought he’d decorate the ski-box on his Saab 9-3…..

More to come (oh, the suspense!)…..

I guess you could say that it feels like a little gift to me to see that someone would want to go to the trouble of making this and displaying it on their car. It’s a very kind gesture.

And what a nice car, too….

The car got a little Saab logo to go with the SU label….

Nice work, Fredrik, and thanks for the compliment. Very much appreciated.

Nice car, nice colour.
The OG 9-3 is a really good looking car, even now 10+ years later the design is still looking fresh to me.
BTW, those were the rims of my first Saab. 🙂
Less power, less doors, no turbo and it rolled in the curves like a ship, but I loved that car. 🙂

That car seems to be in amazing condition! And what a nice gesture!

It seems to be in Örebro (Sweden), whining belt (gnäll bältet) does the region called. Why!
When we talk it sounds “whining” obviously. I´m from that region myself orginally.

Nice pictures(I like the initiative) by the way Fredrik!

That sticker indicates a real Saab interest and the funny thing is that it doesn’t matter if it would say saabsverige.com or saab.com – SU is almost that well established as the original entities.

Very sweet! The OG 9-3 exterior has held up nicely, but frankly I think the interior is starting to show its age. I wonder how I can dress up the interior of my Viggen. Any suggestions?

Hey Quijote,
I’m getting this Carbon dash kit for the Viggen at some point…. Some Australian models came with something similar and it looks great… I think Swade has the kit in his Monte –

Nice! If I had a ski-box I would also get one like that 🙂

Great pic with Örebro slott in the background (a couple of 100m away from where I work)

The SU store should sell a smaller version of these. I would definatley put one on my roof rack.

I’d be happy to put the http://www.saabsunited.com. logo on my saab – yes perhaps these can be made available in the Saabsunited web store

Top idea Swade – a range of sizes for fitting on windows, spoilers or wherever anyone likes – I’d love on on my Viggen front air dam (would cover the cracked paintwork too!!)

Cool car. 🙂 Same colour as my current 2001 9-3SE TiD but different rims. Interestingly I have a carbon dash in mine but have no idea where from as the owner before me had fitted it. I also have the half-leather seats with ‘turbo’ embossing. Not sure if he added those or not. I really went to town, pimping her out with…wait for it…a cargo net. I work her hard delivering very heavy loads of magazines around and she’s still working sweetly with 160,000 miles (257,000km) approaching. Still returning 45-50mpg too, which is nice at £5.73 ($8.87) a gallon! I… Read more »
