That's the difference. Saab not only has different cars with the same name (900, 900), (9-3, 9-3) but also same cars with different names (900, 9-3). I suppose a generic name could be: Saab 9TIOBM3R Saab 9TIOBM5R . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 9TIOBM3R= (hit the wrong key) this is our BMW 3 series replacement 9TIOBM5R= (hit the wrong key) this is our BMW 5 series replacement Johannes
