This is a post I never wanted to write – my 2010 Saab TTiD belongs to our company and we have a strict 3 year ownership policy, as much as I’ve tried to think of ways around it, (I even tried to persuade my wife to have it instead of her beloved SportCombi) but can’t, so with huge regret, it’s up for sale.
Any regulars to SvsS will know plenty about this Saab, it’s pretty special, if fact, almost unique. When I bought it as a demonstrator from Saab, I had an entire range of Hirsch extras factory fitted which include:
200hp Hirsch ECU upgrade
Full 4 piece front grille set
Rear boot spoiler
Stainless steel dual exhaust
345mm brakes and callipers
18” five doublw spoke alloys
Sport steering wheel
Leather carbon dash
Leather carbon gear centre
Leather carbon door caps
I’ve kept it pretty nice, it’s been looked after by Bond Street Saab and has only covered 41,000 miles. It’s got a new MOT and has just been serviced, it has new rear vented discs and calipers, Michelin Pilot Sports all round and has just had a clay bar treatment, wax and full valet.
Regular readers will also know it had a few war wounds during the past 3 years:
Slight indent on bonnet
Sat Nav UK disc needs replacing (Sat Nav and Europe disc still work fine)
Stone chips on front bumper
Front wheels have slight kerbing
It’s an exceptional Saab, and I’m really hoping another Saabist will buy and enjoy it for many years to come, it’s amazing to drive, reliable, fast, safe and efficient – 40 – 45mpg with enthusiastic daily driving.
Cost wise, I’m really not sure, I’ll be placing it on ebay tomorrow with a sensible reserve, but wanted to post it on here first out of respect.
As you can imagine, I’m hugely sad to see this go, but don’t worry, I’m currently buying another ‘older’ Saab to compensate for the loss and to take Saab vs. Scepticism into its next chapter.
If you’re interested, feel free to ask me any questions via email, I’ll try and answer anything as honestly as I can. Once the car sells, I only ask one thing of the proud new owner – to send me regular pictures and updates of the car so that I can continue to share the Saab love here on SvsS.
It’s up on ebay, please let’s hope it goes to someone who loves Saabs as much as I do, good luck 😦
