Cirrus White SAABs rule - is yours a T8? That would be a negative. My running C900's both have non-turbo'd 8V powerplants but that doesn't stop me fiddling. Today I pulled off the front bumper and concocted a way to fit foglights using two different types of Saab light mounting brackets to get the correct location for the lights under the bumper. I'm yet to run the wiring kit for them but just having them mounted makes the front of the car look more mean (I've replaced the stock clear lenses with yellow ones also). I don't have a digital cam (yet) but I might hold off using pure gloss white for the paint repairs until I can get a reference card for Cirrus White to compare against.
