How to Add an AUX Input to a Saab 9-3
This video shows how to add an AUX input jack to a 2003 or newer Saab 9-3. Before doing this you might want to look in your center armrest and see if there's one there already. I had one, I just didn't know it. Oh well... I like the location of this one better anyway. My car is a 2006. I don't know what year Saab started adding the AUX input in the armrest, but some of the earlier cars didn't have them. Anyway, now I have TWO AUX inputs! :-) If your car is a 2003 through 2005, go here to see how to connect the wires directly to the pins on the back of the stereo: http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21434

Saab 9-3 Vector 1.9 TiDS Steptronic Full Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
The front-wheel-drive 9-3 does not feel state of the art from behind the wheel. It was facelifted in 2007, but as the company points out the 9-3 has a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating, there really was no need to change its underpinnings. However, although it is comfortable enough, there's no disputing the fact that rivals offer great handling and better body control. Mechanically though, there is a highlight -- the twin-turbo 1.9-litre TTiD. The smaller turbocharger minimises lag and provides great throttle response, while the larger one helps it produce 400Nm and 178bhp. It's smoother than the single-turbo 1.9-litre TiD, but can still get raucous when pushed hard. As with all Saabs, the manual gearshift is rubbery, too. The four-cylinder petrol alternatives are feeling their age now, but the 2.8-litre V6 turbo is an impressive performer. Marketplace The facelifted 9-3 is very much of the nip and tuck variety. The biggest changes came at the front, with a distinctive eyebrow light across the top of the main lamp. Elsewhere, there's a cleaner look, and the new 'ice-white' tail lamps are stylish. Offered in saloon and Sport Wagon estate guises, the Saab offers a less expensive premium alternative to a BMW 3-Series or Audi A3. A line-up of fleet-focused Airflow, Linear SE and Vector Sport models are easy to follow, but while there's a large range of engines, it's the TiD 120 and 150 units that sell most strongly. Owning A new interior in 2006 still didn't raise quality levels to the standards of rivals, and while it did reduce the button-count, some of the switchgear still appears dated. The soft seats offer excellent long-distance comfort though, and ergonomically, the safe Saab is intuitive to use. Furthermore, while rear legroom is not particularly generous, the saloon's boot is decent and the Sport Wagon's cargo area is well thought out. Cleverly, the middle section of the floor can be folded upwards and used to prevent shopping bags from sliding around. Equipment levels also impress, and the 1.9-litre diesel variants prove economical -- more so than the slightly thirsty petrol units. Where the Saab's sub-premium status shows is in retained values, though. They're simply not as good as those of its German competitors. With so many entry-level luxury car choices from Germany, Japan and America, it's easy to overlook the Swedish Saab 9-3. But the truth is, the Saab 9-3 could be a great match for buyers looking for a spacious, safe and comfortable automobile with a proven safety record and a distinctly modern attitude. Today's 9-3 lineup is the latest in Saab's long line of near-luxury cars dating back to the 1970s. Offered in a variety of body styles, with abundant cargo space and frugal yet powerful engines, it has always represented a competitively priced, character-laden alternative to the me-too near-luxury offerings from other manufacturers. Though the unique and practical 9-3 hatchbacks were discontinued after the 2002 model year, the 9-3 family continues to be offered in multiple body styles: a four-door sedan, two-door convertible and four-door wagon, the latter called "SportCombi." All utilize small-displacement, turbocharged engines that extract big power while salvaging respectable fuel economy. Recent examples have been made available with V6s as a step up from one of Saab's traditionally lively four-cylinders. Furthermore, the Saab 9-3 tends to be priced aggressively, at least in sedan and wagon form. Convertible models have always been a bit less of a bargain. Among the Saab 9-3's chief shortcomings are its lower performance thresholds and somewhat cut-rate interior in comparison with German and Japanese competitors. Still, it remains a good bet for near-luxury car shoppers seeking something different in a class of look-alikes.Today's Saab 9-3 is sold in three body styles: sedan, SportCombi wagon and convertible. Sedan and SportCombi models feel spacious, with low floors, upright windows and seating for five, though three in the rear seat can be tight. Legroom in particular is a sore spot. Convertible models have a rear seat for two adults of small-to-average size. Cargo room in all models is generous.

Video/Data capture: - Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 (Video and audio) - Samsung Galaxy S2 (GPS and OBDII using ALapRecorder application) - OBDlink MX (OBD data) - ALapRecorder HD for generating overlay graphs Date/time: - 01.07.2012 at 12:43 - 09:49 lap time (my fastest of the 4 during the weekend) Featured cars (in no particular order): - Renault Megane RS (right at the beginning, my friend João) - Mercedes E class - Subaru Impreza Wagon - Nissan 200SX - BMW M5 (Ring Taxi -- right at the beginning) - BMW series 3 - Renault Megane (2x) - Mini Cooper S (2x) - Mazda MX5 - Assortment of Bikes Notes: - This was my 3rd lap ever - also the one where I managed to go faster due to not much traffic. - Top speed = 205km/h at around 2:17 - At around 7:32 I am trying to get out of the way from a Mazda MX5 that was driving glued to my ass -- that was not the place for him to overtake, but he was pushing it a lot. I went really wrong line into the corner. Do note his driving style after he goes through. A bit... enthusiastic, to say the least! :) - Loosing time behind the Scooby Wagon towards the end of the video. He didn't much fancy being overtaken... made me waste time on a zone where I could have been flat out. You can listen to me complaining at 9:00 :) - ...and then failing to notice the slippery track sign at 9:10, which led to a understeer scare at 9:19, doing around 120km/h. Lucky! :) - Moving out of the way for bike before the mini-Carroussel but he was not having none of it so... I took the line. If you have video footage of my car, please let me know! :)
