Saab Event Tomorrow!

State Nine



Snow is on everyone’s mind here in the Northest. Lucky for us, we all drive Saabs! We only got a light dusting in Boston and are not expecting any additional accumulation between now and Saturday at 9am – the start of the Boston Area Saab Gathering!



We are tremendoulsy excited to see everyone at tomorrow’s event and have some very exciting news: Since Fredrik Aberg is here from MapTun Performance in Sweden, we are offering a Try and Buy Deal on the on-site MapTun Stage 1 Upgrades. Come in and give your VIN#, we will tune your Saab and then allow you to take it for a spin – hold on to your hat! If you are not 100% percent satisfied with the upgrade, we will restore your Saab to its original state. But, we are very confident you won’t want to go back after you experience your MapTuned Saab!



Here are some highlights of this Saturday’s event:
