    New Saab 9-2x owner (please don't hate me)

    Like the title says, I just bought myself a 2005 Saab 9-2x Aero in Satin Gray Metallic. I'm so excited about it, I've been a car enthusiast since elementary school, but ever since I got my license, I've been saddled with driving an old SUV around. Not anymore thankfully, and I can't wait to start modding it. It came with summer tires already on, so my first mod is going to be new wheels (for next spring) and some winter/all seasons to go on the current wheels. Hopefully the weather will be good to me here in Rhode Island and hold off on the snow before I can change the tires.

    I look forward to contributing more around here, hopefully owning a Saabaru won't make me the black sheep

    Those are nice, I've always like them. They have better chassis components than the equivalent Subaru wagons too, in the front end.

    Not a Saab fan. That said ... I never considered the 9-2x a Saab anyway, just a Subaru WRX dressed differently. I look forward to hearing your impressions of the car as you go along.

    Welcome aboard and enjoy the ride!

    Awesome! If they would have ever made a sedan Saabaru 92x... I would've bought one in a heart beat.

    Those are cool

    Gah, I was all lined up to buy a Saab-aru last year, but someone beat me to it by an hour.

    Congrats, and welcome to the club! No hate for the 9-2X, don't worry.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys, I'm glad to finally be able to be an active part of an enthusiast community. To answer one of the questions earlier, it came with all three packages (cold weather, sport, and premium?) and stickered for around $32k new. I managed to get a really good deal on it, it has 68,000 miles and just had a huge amount of suspension maintenance done. For $7,995 I couldn't be happier, no car payments for grad school and now I have plenty of money for mods.

    It is my first car with a manual transmission, so having my friend tomorrow should be a fun experience. It's weird to be nervous about driving again.

    Congrats on the new car! I'm personally not really a fan of Saabs, though they used to make a very interesting looking car.

    I'm confused. Are you going to get all seasons or winter tires?
