A little more history is needed about this Aero. Original owner, who ordered the car, Mark, was the sales manager at the time for Just Saab of Dayton Ohio. I cannot say enough good things about this dealership. Mark added the BBSII wheels, the Remus exhaust & the carbon fibre dash & console fascia. When he left the company to open a coffee shop, I bought the car with about 35K miles on it in late 2004. I added the accessory floor & boot mats, the bridge spoiler & the carbon fibre shift knob. Could not get the carbon fibre door pulls to finish the interior but I tried. Also added were the Euro market exterior mirror glass on both mirrors, the ones which are two planes. Also added was the interior mirror with compass & garage door function. The wheels were refinished in gray, the same as found on the classic 900 CE model. Later I installed slotted rotors from Genuine Saab & S.S. brake hoses at all four corners. The rear suspension had a go over with new springs & bushings along with Koni shocks & struts for the front. During our ownership, the car was the darling of the dealership & received all needed service & more. It never let us down. The car was driven during winter but mere blocks away from the house was a self-serve car wash with garage doors & heated floors which I made good use of whenever the car was out in the nasty stuff.
I have tried to contact the seller with little success which is disappointing. His ad does not do the car justice. Yes, the accident & subsequent salvage title is unfortunate but the air bags did not trigger! My concern is it will go to someone who does not have a clue as to how to maintain the car & it will be trashed in no time. A sad fate to say the least for a very unique Aero Sportcombi is in the wind. Thank you for reading!
