Thanks for your info about the armrest you can purchase for the Saab 9-3 convertible. I looked at the site but it said for years 1999 thru 2002. I thought the '02's and '03's were the same interior but I might be wrong about that. I'm going to send the company a question about that. By the way, was it easy to intall and did it help much? Thanks again for your input.

Just keep up with basic maintenance. Here are a few tips
1 - Always use synthetic oil (Mobil 1) 0W-40
2 - Using above oil, change every 7500 miles
3 - Always use premium fuel, fill up the tank before low fuel indicator light up (avoid driving it with low fuel level)
Unique to Saab -
*Use it for long trip (10+ miles), avoid short trips. Saab turbo-charged engine aren't made for running 5 errands around town all within 5 miles on a daily basis
*Saab is ready to go after 10 seconds of warm-up every morning, 30 seconds max. Avoid long idle.
*All saab owner should bookmark http://www.saabnet.com

It was easy to install. I am used to an armrest so I found it uncomfortable without one. It was much better after I installed the arm rest.

Thanks for your help. I appreciate it..I don't think I could get used to driving without one either. I saw the ones they sell online. I'm sure they're worth it. We're considering buying a 2003 SE that we saw..Not totally sure yet what we're going to do, but it looked very nice.

My 01 was an SE. Great car. Good luck and enjoy it if you take the plunge.

I wanted to ask you if the armrest you bought for your 2001 Saab looked liked it was from the factory. I understand you have a 2004 now which came with the armrest in the car. Thanks for your replies. Good luck with the '04!!
