    Picked up a new to me set of wheels today. Saab 60th Anniversary Edition 17 x 7.5 ALU71's. Previously from a 2011 9-3 Aero and in pretty good shape.

    I will clean them up over the winter and have them ready for next spring.

    Nice score, those will look good on your 9-5. The one in the picture actually looks pretty clean already.

    Those double 5-spokes in your pictures are still my favorite.

    Thanks.

    And yes those 5-spoke doubles (twins) are really nice.

    The 'new' ones though are in better physical shape so I will switch them out in the spring for a different look.

    New look for 2020. Had the ALU-71 wheels installed today and they look pretty good. No vibrations either.

    Ready for summer.

    Great pictures, your 9-5 is becoming better with age. Love the blue with the blacked out chrome.

    That looks a lot cleaner than my 02 Aero at 119k.

    More things change. The more they stay the same.

    A few small parts arrived the other day. eeuro stopped delivering to Canada so I used eSaab for the first time.

    Instead of less than a week delivery it took 18 days. So not as good. But I was able to source the mirror control switch which for the past 3 years everywhere else has listed that part as no longer available, so great. They had 6 in stock.

    Also got parking brake springs, the shifter jalouise, and a few other various bits.

    The good news is I now have full control of my mirrors.

    Repaired the fuel door lock by replacing the 12V motor. This is a lot cheaper than buying the whole lock, less than $15 vs $135.

    Now my fuel is secure again.



    Look on eBay for this motor:

    Car Door Lock Motor 280 DC Motor for Opel Astra Meriva B Locking Filler Flap
    SKU: Color Name:motor
    Item price: US $14.68
    Order number: 23-05349-19378
    Item ID: 352822989620
    Seller: azgiant_power (6180)
