Saab 9-5 getting Hirsch Performance upgrade

It’s OK to get a little excited, though not too excited (just yet).

Saab 9-5 getting prepared for performance upgrade homologation

So Hirsch Performance have been hard at work by the sound of things and now have the car undergoing homologation testing.

As you can see, the car looks quite plain. My understanding is that work is also underway to design and produce some of the cosmetic enhancements that Hirsch do so well.

This is great to see!

Video: SUHRT gets a Maptun upgrade

This one came as a pleasant surprise in my inbox today.

Jorgen from the Saabs United Historic Rally Team called in to Maptun and got a little work done to his summer car. Just like my mate John here in Hobart, he’s had his car tuned with the new Maptuner portable tuning device.

Cue the videos:

The special discount offer they were talking about is fully outlined here.

Short and sweet: Maptun are offering a 15% discount on all software upgrades and free shipping on your entire purchase (not just the software).

To claim the discount:

Head over to the Maptun website and check out the right tuning guide for your car. When you place an order, include the promotion code SU2010 in the order form. Your discount will be applied to the tuning software component of your order and your order will be placed.

The offer closes at the end of this month, so get in quick.

Note: I’m told there have been some difficulties processing some credit card orders. This was due to a setting on Maptun’s electronic processing system (it was set up as a fraud protection). That setting has been adjusted and those credit card transactions should now go through OK.

Speedparts Saab performance and tuning

I feel an overwhelming need to apologise to Speedparts, as I haven’t had them on the Parts and Performance links on the sidebar.
When visiting Trollhattan, especially during the Saab Festival, you’re quite likely to see a bunch of young men with hot Saabs, the guys wearing T-shirts with the following design on them:
Speedparts
Speedparts are based in Uddevalla and have heaps of experience modifying Saabs. As the name suggests, they’re performance specialists and have a full range of Saab performance parts and tuning systems.
The website is primarily in Swedish, so you may have a little trouble navigating it. Fortunately for those English-only types out there, Speedparts products are distributed in the UK by long-term TS sponsor, Elkparts. The Elkparts list of Speedparts products is here.
Welcome, Speedparts, to the TS family. And please accept my apologies for taking so long to get you on the sidebar.
