The CS body style started in '93. The '93MY is a bit of an oddball, though. It has the later body style and the earlier engine management system. Also steer clear of the TCS/ETS cars. This is the traction control system. I would suggest 94+ and make sure you get one with a turbo and without the v6 and without TCS. I had a '95 and was very pleased until it got totaled (rear ended). I now have a '97 and am very pleased. This is all on the Saabnet site, but sometimes difficult to figure out. KeithG Dima wrote: > Hello, > > I am looking to buy a '93 9000 Aero.
