    Need your help finding performance exhaust

    Hey guys i own a 2003 SAAB 9-3 Linear 2.0T 5 speed manual, I love the car and I am looking to do some modifications to it. Is there any site or place that makes a good cat back or turbo back exhaust system for this model car? I am having some trouble finding one. I want it to have some performance but id rather have a good, deep Euro-Tuned sound. So if you guys can give some input it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Genuine Saab is typically a good place to start for modern Saab performance parts (pretty much anything NG900 and later). They have several different exhaust options too...

    I agree with Shazam, you can't go wrong with Genuine SAAB. I bought my SAAB Sport exhaust from them, no regrets.

    Thank you both for your responses, i was looking through their stuff and for pretty much all their exhaust systems for my year it was for the 9-3 SS. Does that matter? can I put a 9-3 SS sport exhaust on my car? or is it a completely different set up? Here is one that i found tell me what you think cause it says in the descrition that it fits.

    The Linear is a Sport Sedan, or SS as some people call it(which irritates the piss out of me, SS is Chevy nomenclature for Super Sport).

    So yes, what you're looking at will work on your car.

    No I don't have a SportCombi it's a sedan, thanks for the help the SS thing was confusing me so much i knew chevy had a SS and GM took over saab in the 80's but i didn't know that they applied the SS to Saab models. Another quick question besides my exhaust i was thinking of putting on some nice rims possibley Raderwerks with their mid to deep dish rims that they have for sale what do you guys think? for example:
    Raderwerks | M-TEN85 S | One Piece

    Those rims look nice, but you'll need to run with wobble bolts or with adapters; I'm not seeing a 5x110.

    I think this is the cut-out you want...
