Mega-specials on Saab Accessories from Saab Australia

I’ve just got a PDF through from Saab Australia and they’re doing some huge discounts on accessories for the Saab 9-3 range during October.
The PDF’s a bit big for me to put on site, but here are the details and if you want a copy of the PDF, just let me know via email and I’ll get one to you.
I never knew paddle shift was an accessory! And half-price on wind deflectors for the convertible sounds good, too.

Saab Cleaning staples!
Our DP Interior Cleaner is a detailer’s secret weapon – try it and you’ll agree.

Some notes and offers from Saab Australia

Last week I brought you a special offer from Saab Australia on Saab Parking Assist foe the Saab 9-3 (03-07 models).
I’ll repeat that offer below for those who may not have seen it, and as a reminder for those who have!
——
First things first, though….
Saab Oz are cleaning out the sheds and have dug up a one-only offer – there’s only one of each of these accessories available so it’ll be first come, first serve.
Saab 9000 owners who want to get in early on a Spring clean and spruce up of their car have a rare opportunity to obtain a Genuine Saab Walnut Dash trim and a set of matching walnut door caps to suit RHD 9000 CD/CS from 1992 to 1998.
9000_wood.jpg
Part numbers:
Dash – 136103405
Door – 136103033
Both of these parts are going for the one-only special price of $220 each. That’s $220 for the dash and $220 for the set of door caps.
Just contact your Aussie Saab dealer and they will order your part in and note that Saab Oz only have 1 of each at this price! Definitely no rain checks.
If your dealer has some problems, contact me and I’ll try and put you on to the right person.

You may recall that just before I sold my 1985 900 Aero, I replaced the clutch in it. The replacement cost me around $800 installed.
When Saab Australia emailed me about the 9000 interior bits for sale, they also provided me with a nice little reminder about using Genuine Saab parts in your repairs.

I was reading recently your article about service costs and you mentioned that you had used a non-genuine Sachs clutch kit in your Classic 900 turbo, which from memory cost around $800 fitted. The RRP inc. GST for the Saab Genuine clutch and pressure plate kit is $286 plus $53.90 for the bearing, (the injected kit less again – only $198!). Standard time is 2.1 hours to fit, so even with some fluid and extra time it would be cheaper to go 100% Genuine.

Hmmmmmmm [he thinks to himself, rather embarassed]. Thanks.
It’s a good reminder to definitely count going Genuine in your research when something needs to be done. I had no idea that I’d blown some extra cash.

Oh, and by the way, regarding the new owner of my 1985 Saab 900 Aero and the catastrophic engine failure……I received a quick explanation via email.
It started like this:

I went in a race with a friend….when the engine started to sound strangely.

Apparently the friend was in a turbocharged Nissan Skyline and the little Aero was acquitting itself quite well when it decided to quit.
Grrrrrrr.

I’m very pleased to be able to pass on a special offer from Saab Australia.
They’ve sent out brochures about this to customers via their normal contact methods, but knowing that some people’s details may no longer be correct, they figured it wise to extend the offer via other means as well.
So if you’re an Aussie with a Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan, SportCombi (2003-2007) or a Saab 9-3 Convertible (2004-2007) then please read on and consider this excellent value offer from Saab Australia.

Saab parking assist Whilst your eyes might be immediately drawn to the sexy twin pipes at the back of this 9-3, what you should be looking for is the little dimple you can just see there in the black bumper strip. Click to enlarge if you need to….
That’s Saab Parking Assist. When you put your car in reverse, those sensors detect the proximity of walls, vehicles, etc that might be in your blind spot, and the sensors beep at an increasing rate depending on how close you get to the object. Parking Assist is a genuine help when you’re parking in a tight spot and has helped thousands of people avoid costly repairs to paint and bumper panels.
So what’s the offer?
Saab Parking Assist is normally a $790 option for the 9-3 Sedan and Combi, and an $890 option on the Convertible.
Then you’ve got fitting costs as well, which at 1.4 hours for the sedan/combi and 1.7 hours for the convertible brings the normal total cost to around $1,000.
Until the end of June 2009, owners of 2003-07 9-3’s can have Genuine Saab Park Assist fitted for only $495.00.
Yes, that’s fitted!

That’s a genuine bumper-saving item for a genuine bumper price – around 50% off.
If any of you Aussie Saab 9-3 owners want to take advantage of this offer, just call your local Saab dealer. They should know all about it.
Alternatively, you can call Saab Central on 1800 50 SAAB (7222)
