Need to get in contact with Amazon / Prime…. or ex. Top Gear people

September 21, 2015 in News

As a part of the tentative new car project I need to get in touch with the production team at Amazon Prime who have signed the three ex Top Gear guys. Over some days I have been trying to get to one of the three guys, Clarkson, Hammond, May or their producer Andy Wilman. I bet someone on the wast SU network has an entry into the AMAZON HQ in Seattle or with someone near BBC in the UK who still might know the whereabouts of the old Top Gear team. I have spoken to friendly ladies in India representing Amazon  but unfortunately that is not the way to get to the true decision makers. I need to pitch my ides with someone with some real authority.

If you or anyone in your surroundings have an “access key” feel free to contact me at trued1[at] or call at +46709589632

Auto-dimming rearview side mirrors back in stock!

September 17, 2015 in News

Many of us have been waiting to replace brownish auto-dimming rearview side mirrors for a long while now, as described in this post by Tim. The problem has concerned both 9-3 and 9-5 owners.

Recently this issue has been solved. According to Viktor Karlsson, Product Marketing Manager / Global Marketing at Orio, auto-dimming rearview side mirrors are now available on all markets. It is a long term solution with secured supply over time.


A MY10 mirror glass (pos11) is combined with a frame (pos5) and a cover (pos10). Parts information has been sent to all retailers. A new mirror will work fine with an older one, if you only need to replace one.

The drawback with this solution is that you need to get the new cover painted.

First WIN ever for a SAAB 9-3 Racing car in Swedish STCC Series

September 13, 2015 in Events, News, Saabs History, Sweden

SU has written articles on the two teams racing Saab 9-3 STCC cars in the STCC Racing Series here in Sweden. Yesterday Daniel Haglöf who is not only the driver parallell to Emma Kimilänen in the PWR team but now also the team manager after that Peter “Poker” Wallenberg has stepped back. Peter is still with the team that bears his name. Daniel managed to make a dual Saab win with Göransson from the Tidö Team in second place.

This is the most important SAAB Racing victory in a very long time! Great work in the PWR Team. Congratulations! – Jörgen Trued

Thus putting the Cyan Volvo of Thed Björk in third position. But it was really close racing for that third place and if the race would have been one more lap I am convinced that the other PWR driver Finnish driver Emma Kimiläinen would have made it a trip Saab win. Let hope for that in the near future. Lets hope Daniel puts SaabsUnited on the VIP list at PWR for next season so we can do even more and in depth stories about the team and its success.

Press release: Nevs has paid its debts to the creditors

September 9, 2015 in NEVS, Press Releasse

Nevs has made the second and last payment of the composition to the 106 creditors today with a total amount of 231 MSEK. This means that Nevs has no longer any debts to creditors.

Nevs exited the reorganization in April 2015 with a composition proposal approved by 98.2% of the creditors. According to the composition, the last payment of the debt should be made no later than October 14, 2015.

“Being debt-free gives us stability to continue our building relationships with industrial, financial and technological partners, who are significant when it comes to develop and implement our business plan. To be able to make these payments earlier than agreed was important for us”, said Mattias Bergman, President Nevs.

In May 2015, Nevs introduced the city of Tianjin (THT) and State Research Information Technology (SRIT) as its new strategic shareholders. The investment from the new investors have been implemented as planned. The Tianjin manufacturing plant, which will be Nevs’ second global production base focused on EVs, is under construction, as a complement to the Trollhättan Factory.

NEVS is now debt free, at least according to 98,2% of its former creditors, although many said that NEVS only wanted to sell the parts and disappear.

Hope the next press-release is once again about cars and not about a financial matter.

Ex. Saab Automobile AB managers will be prosecuted

September 2, 2015 in News

Reading an article  from P4 Väst and from Ttela paper that prosecutors at the Vänersborg Court have pulled charges against Jan-Åke Jonsson, Kristina Geers and some other ex. manager at Saab Automobile.

The prosecutors claim that crime s has been committed between march and april 2011 6 months before the bankruptcy. Johnsson and Geers plus a third person have made arrangements regarding an import and sales network agreement in Ukraine. False invoices have be worked with by the third prosecuted person who was in charge for that “operation”.

Close to 31 million SEK in two bogus invoices.

Geers is prosecuted for coarse forgery and misrepresentation. in changes in the annual reports for both Saab Automobile AB and Saab Automobile Tools AB a crime if convicted could render up to 6 years imprisonment.

Both Jonsson and Geers claim they have not committed s crime. Both say that they have signed the agreement, Geers claim she has diffuse memories of the agreement but she says she dis sign it. Jonsson claims he had no knowledge of the company in question in Ukraine.

IMPORTANT! This prosecution has NOTHING to do with the NEVS AB company.

More to come as this story develops.
