Hi, I've just taken delivery of a 2002 9-3 Aero, love it! Both my gf and I use Nokia 8210s, and I'm wanting to fit a hands free system to my 9-3. I'm UK based. This is what I can gather so far, can someone fill in the blanks? 1) Buy a Saab 'holder' piece of plastic that fits nice to the side of the console, next to the heating controls (I've found the little pop-out, I guess it screws in there, and I guess the cable can enter the console there too?) 2) Buy a Saab wiring harness to plug into the built in wiring for the phone to go through the stereo and use the built in microphone. 3) Buy a Nokia / other make adaptor / cradle for the 8210. I'm a little stuck on the last item (and the middle one too!), all I can find so far is 'plug and go' hands free units that either plug into the cigarette lighter, or others that are hard wired, but with a spiral cable, and an external speaker, and all look a bit nasty. Has anyone in the UK come up with a neat solution for completely integrating an 8210, so I can get in my car, clip it into a cradle, and that's it, it then works through the stereo just fine, and doesn't have any random wires / speakers etc showing? Simon.
