Over the weekend, we enjoyed a 7 hour round trip to pick up our new (old) Saab, which just happens to be one of my favourite Saabs of all time, a 9-3 HOT Aero convertible and it’s in just the right colour.
This Saab holds near legendary status in our household, I’ve owned one previously and have wanted another ever since I had to let it go. They’re super comfortable, exceptionally proficient and, in my opinion, rather gorgeous. It’s got great credentials too, the high output turbo delivers 205hp as standard and coupled with a manual gearbox is an exciting Saab to drive, there’s never a dull moment, unless you want one of course.
Plans are already afoot to upgrade things a little, Nordic remap, Abbott dump valve, brakes and braces followed by a couple of small cosmetic tweaks, other than that, this is a Saab to love just as it is.
