-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!

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 »
