A dash of SAAB style

I picked up the long awaited SAAB 9-3 TTiD today from Bond Street SAAB.

After the initial excitement of seeing the car parked in the showroom with all the Hirsch gear fitted, Chris (the poor guy who had to deal with me through the long and very detailed process) went through some of the phone integration and sat nav details with me and then I was off.

A huge thank you to Bond Street SAAB, who have been fantastic, they’ve listened to every desire, and outperformed in every area to deliver a unique 9-3 I’ll hopefully enjoy for a good few years.

I’ll spend more time shortly, and take some pictures of the exterior, but sitting behind the modified dash with gorgeously soft sport leather steering wheel, this is a seriously nice place to be.

Having struggled to be able to wait for a 9-3 Griffin to be delivered, I opted for an ex demo from SAAB GB; a few months old with minimal miles, factory fitted sat nav, and the colour I wanted; Carbon Grey.

Having studied the Griffin, the changes SAAB has made to the dash finish isn’t exactly how i’d have liked it, so would have changed it anyway. Interior spec now includes a Hirsch carbon nappa leather dash and door detailing, leather door handles, sport steering wheel and aluminium peddles.

  1. Quite frankly, that is how every 9-3 dashboard should look – especially the Griffin which IMO looks horrible with that grey insert. It’s also too expensive.
    Nice to see a RHD car for a change – and what a steering wheel!
