(Check at > www.nokia.com) I've got a 8210 in my 2001 9-3SE with full handfree. Works great. The kit I used is a THB Comfort (http://www.thb.de/english/liefer/comfort/comfort.htm) which I got from Talkingshop (http://www.talkingshop.co.uk/p2/accessories_byphone.asp?phone_id=293). I fitted the kit myself - quite easy really as long as are you willing/able to take the glovebox and side panel out (see Richard Bevan's audioguide at http://www.saabnet.com/sites/richard.bevan for details), and can read a wiring diagram to get the cables in the correct order. Biggest problem was the pre-fitted microphone in the 9-3: I couldn't get the impedence matched correctly and ended up using the microphone in the THB kit. I did buy the Saab mobile phone adaptor cable, but as the connector on the 9-3 is actually a standard VDA phone connector you might be able to find one cheaper elsewhere: or you can always use THB's own VDA cable (http://www.thb.de/english/akces/avda/avda.htm) if you can find one anywhere as this would plug in directly to the saab and to the THB kit. I've also seen the THB kits in my local Halfords at (IIRC) £200 fitted. Rob.
