When I bought my “#17” in December 2012, it came with a well-functioning radio. In fact, this radio is probably one of the best basic units SAAB ever fitted, but it had two main issues: it had a not-so-very-beautiful green screen and didn’t have GPS/navigation capabilities. Upgrading to the high end touch screen system however was reported to be next to impossible, but after consulting with the team at Authaus Lafrentz in Kiel, it turned out it could be done anyway!

Closer to Perfection!

A few months ago, I wrote an article for “SAABberichten” (the official magazine of the Dutch SAAB Club) called “Close to Perfection“. It described the many different steps I had taken to enhance and preserve my car since I acquired it in December 2012, ranging from rust protection to new Edge rims and a complete makeover from Vector to Aero trim. Close to perfection indeed but could it get any better?
