-Complete turboback 3″ heavy grade aluminized steel exhaust -Vortex Cherrybomb muffler with Flowmaster chrome tip

Wheels/Tires:

That’s a great looking 9-5 – and nice to see how it’s being treated. What’s the mileage on it? Where I live, 9-5s are used and abused – most have well over 100,000 miles on them and are not maintained. So it’s nice to see one in good shape for a change!

hey thanks guys. i do love this car and plan on driving it for 300K miles. i worry a bit about the extra stress that the mods put on the engine and drivetrain, so i stick to 3000 mile oil changes and i flush the tranny like every 15,000… and i tend not to floor it out of stop lights. it’s got just over 90,000 miles on it now. I drive 75 or so miles/day to work 6 days/week so the miles add up quick! all highway driving tho, which I think we all know is where saabs really shine.… Read more »
