    I don't think it works from the factory. You have to get a kit, Parrot and Motorola use to make one.

    How did Saab Tech do? Ironically I brought my '06 SC Aero in for the brakes and they screwed them up. 2 trips for a simple job plus the employees are jerks. I'll never go back there.

    Most European cars read like that, 2-3% fast for some reason. All of my Saabs and Audi's have. Ironically I'm in a loaner Chevy right now and the speedo is dead on. Just the way things are so your...

    The car looks to NOT be an Aero. Would say so in back, have the V6, different wheels, and some other things. Great car though--I had the exact same in Aero form!

    I this is true for US cars but Euro cars do have some sort of fuel filter, inline I'm guessing.

    Avoid Perillo too.
    The Exchange in Lake Bluff is very good and still have several Saab techs. Hubbard Woods Motors in Winnetka has a good Saab tech from a dealer with reasonable prices.

    Well the AMP 1 is a common failure. I don't think at all that it blows the whole fiber optic system as many people have replaced the AMP 1 without any issues. Mine went on my '03 and replaced under...

    Well I pretty much am game here.

    I bought my '09 SS Aero XWD in Aug. 2010 under Spyker. No GM warranty and was a Spyker sale, something I wanted but now sorta regret.

    Car has 58,000 mi. on and...

    So where exactly did all the previously sold Saabs go? A list of dealers and what was the price for each vehicle vs. the opening bid price? That has to be somewhere and should be published.

    Well the nice thing is that it can upgraded relatively easily as it's just a GM set up now since '07. In '08 the Bose system was upgraded mid-year to the 5.1 centerpointe system which I'm not sure...

    Interesting that there are cars at dealerships, what's up with that? Also 2 at Chateua Elan where the Aero Acadamy attendees were housed.

    This message typically comes on every year or just under 10,000 mi. Besides oil change, etc. you are due an air filter at 40,000 mi. which is an easy DIY and can get the filter at most auto part...

    That's great you posted this Frank. Hey if the weather is nice it would be a nice ride up and back. I've done that route many times. You could also take the ferry over out of Ludington.

    If you're doing UOA's you'll find the engine continues to break in for quite a while--up to 10-12,000 miles. With your new car I'd just follow the free service now which will be about in about...

    Well especially for the V6 use the OEM filter. The filter in many cases is more important than the oil. There are special designs to them that the aftermarket companies don't use. If you don't...

    That's great you did all this and hope it works out. However the price is way too high IMHO. I'm sure a good muffler shop or good fabricator could do it for much less. Again nothing against your...

    I've got a new 09' Aero SS and changed the oil at about 4800 mi. Changing it early doesn't hurt one bit. I've got 13,000 mi. and will be going in for the first "intermediate service" this week.
  20. Stereo Upgrade for the Bose CenterPointe 5.1 System?

    OK maybe get some traffic over here and this can be sore subject on the "other" site.

    This system came out mid-year 08' MY and is an enhanced Bose system. I think the speaks are pretty good but...

    That must be a mistake.

    The standard tire for the 09' Aero is 225/50/17 and optional is the 235/45/18. In 08', when XWD was optional and the 255 hp. was standard, it came with the 235/45/17. I...

    OCI and SID on 09' SS?

    Seems they've changed how the OCI works. According to the manual there is no set time frame as before. In 03-05' it was up to 2 years. In 06' it went down to 1 year.

    Now the manual says based...
  23. Why The Different Tire Sizes on Aero XWD?

    I still can't figure our why they went with the sizes used. Why didn't they just use the 235/45/17 vs. the 225/50/17 "H" rated tire, not V or Z?

    And the optional tire, 235/45/18, I don't think is...

    All good points.

    Many oil change directions say to fill up to one quart less of capacity then top off as you did. So on our put in 5 quarts then check and top off. I do wonder why there is such...

    Don't know about Sweden but you certainly aren't too far from the US headquarters. My dealer just told me last week that they are about 1/3 the size they were when with GM. I think I read about 50...
