  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    I have a 2004 9-3 Aero with what I now know to be the basic 4 speaker system. My mistake was assuming that 7 grilles in the trim panels meant 7 speakers. I now know this to not be entirely accurate. Being somewhat disappointed with the audio quality from the basic system, my thoughts have...

    Hi guys! As above, do b204 and b205 motors use the same oil filter? I am asking as the major oil filter company in Australia list a paper mesh type (like NG93's i think) instead of a spin on one.

What happened was that as I was accelerating (~3000rpm), I heard a misfire and the revs quickly dropped down and the engine stalled. At this point, I attempted to start the car again, only to have the engine unable to hold...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Hello, I have just bought a 2004 9-3 with the basic stereo in it. I'm not a big audiophile so I can live with the relatively poor sound quality, but I think the dash looks so much better with the upgraded stereo consol with the little screen on it. To that end, could I just buy this...

    Hey everyone. Ive just literally purchased a 2003 9-3 Aero about 2 hours ago. Pick it up next Thursday. One thing they car didnt have was an upgraded audio system.
