Not full bluetooth,bluetooth was only to transfer contacts from phone to saabs built in phone.. it can be done but you need all the fibre optic cables that connect the dvd etc to the front..

If you just want hands free telephone then I'm sure you may have a wiring block behind the N/S transmission tunnel trim then you can buy a connector wiring harness and a parrot hands free kit .

My end goal would be to try and get satnav and Bluetooth and try and keep car looking factory and not butchering the dash

Thanks aerojon I’ll look into that my first Saab had sat nav and like you said phone was a separate card in the boot not Bluetooth if I can get the sat nav done I’ll get a parrot fitted somewhere out of sight again thanks for advice and help any other options please keep them coming.
