Everything is possible in theory, but this one is most likely far from realistic. The ESP requires * a new brake/ABS unit to be able to apply brakes on individual wheels * a new Trionic unit * lots of sensors, i.e. wheel angles * lots of new wires * everything else that does not expect to talk to the new Trionic Even if you fit all required pieces to the car you still need to calibrate the ESP system. You do NOT want the EPS system to apply brakes at the wrong time, do you? A badly calibrated ESP system may be very dangerous as its corrections may destabilize the car, instead of stabilizing the car. Much safer, and most likely much cheaper, to sell the non-ESP 9-5 and buy a new 9-5. > I think it might be useful. Perhaps. It depends on where you drive and how you drive. -- G–ran Larsson http://www.nospam.com/saab/
