Re: 88 spg on eBay is bunk - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
As it's been pointed out over and over again, no bulletproof way to confirm a true SPG from VIN. So this may not be one. I would like to point out though that anyone could add a turbo badge to the grill, or do the 10 minute job of swapping in a whole grill with a turbo emblem.
I don't think the SPG wheel arches are installed over the stock wheel arches. It looks to me like they have weatherstrip along the edge. That is still not a correct install and may indicate the kit was added--or maybe just modified.
Rear hatch has a badge, and the SPGs were badgeless IIRC.
Interested parties should ask for closeup pictures of the springs to count coils and see if they have the SPG paint color swatches (gold front, silver rear IIRC). Should also ask that the driver's door panel be pulled to see if it has the build sticker indicating the AERO kit was installed at the factory.
