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.

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)

Saab stimulus package – SaabUSA Parts

Here in Australia, our fearless leader decided it’d be a good idea to throw around some money in order to keep our economy ticking over. Consequently, most of us Aussies are getting a $900 payment from the Australian Tax Office in the next few weeks – and never mind that it was our taxpayer money in the first place!
I’ve asked each of my four site sponsors in the right sidebar to provide some ideas as to how a Saab owner could best spend $900 on their Saab. Saab USA Parts were the first to respond, and Fred’s ideas are below.
Maybe you’ve got a little spare green coming your way under a similar scheme? If so, consider these as ideas to help get your car ready for the northern summer.
——
The best way to spend $900 on a Saab is to pamper it with a Spring Clean using Original Equipment Saab Cleaning Products (kit exclusive to SUSAP – $74.95).
Then touch-up the body using Saab Touch-Up Paint ($17.50);
Restore scratched/faded headlamps with a Headlamp Restoration Kit ($59.95);
Install a new set of black powdercoated Saab Stainless Steel Plate Frames ($29.90);
Put a Saab Jumper Cable Safety Kit in the trunk ($77.76);
Place an Emergency Hammer / Tire Gauge in the glovebox ($21.59);
Install a set of Saab Wheel Bolt Covers to cover up rusty lug nuts ($10.95 for set of 20 with removal tool);
Cover your car with an Original Equipment Saab Car Cover (Saab 9-3SS – $149.00);
Be sure to keep a Saab Golf Umbrella in the trunk ($29.70);
Treat yourself to a Saab T-Shirt ($19.97), Saab Cap ($21.60), Saab Sport Glasses ($27.00) and Saab Turbo-X Driving Gloves ($32.35) from the Saab gear page;
Safe Driving,
You friends at Saab USA Parts

That amounts to around US$600, which is just under $900 Aussie dollars. Of course, if you had $900Americanos, then you could make up the difference with a Saab USA Parts gift voucher, the balance of which you can whittle away as you need various bits and pieces over time.

Welcome to MobilForum – Saab dealers in Germany

I’d like to take a moment to welcome a new sponsor to SaabsUnited – MobilForum from Dresden, in Germany.
——
MobilForum are a top tier dealership specialising in Hummer, Cadillac, Corvette and most importantly for readers at this website – Saab. In fact, with the specialised knowledge they’ve accumulated over the years they are the top tier dealership for premium brands in Saxony, Germany.
mobilforumPhoto.jpg
Mobilforum provide their customers with a balanced mix of experience and innovation when it comes to Saab and GM’s other premium brands. They know their products and their customers. They know that these drivers want their cars to express their individuality, placing a particular emphasis on reliability and superior ride.
Whether it’s the subtly-practical Saab 9-3 Sport Combi or the expressive and powerful Corvette Z06 – customers will receive a full buying and ownership experience from the staff at Mobilforum.
Its their specialised knowledge and creativity that leads them to look for integrated solutions for their customers, like the all-in-one Kenwood audio and commuinications system I publicised at Trollhattan Saab recently. Shortly we’ll hear from a pretty happy TS reader in Singapore who just installed this system in his Turbo X, supplied by Mobilforum.
I want to thank MobilForum for their support of SaabsUnited and wish them well in their mission: to promote Saab in one of the toughest European markets there is, in Germany.
I hope all who are in their region (and beyond) check out their offerings and give them your support where you can.
