Just picked up the kit at Thornhill Saab, the muffler and the centre pipe are sitting in my trunk. The parts are stainless steel and powder coated.

17.08.2004: On the ground
The whole thing on the ground. I've also got an almost new flex pipe from Beacon Motors, since mine needs a replacement badly.

The tip is the same as on the Viggen. Polished stainless steel with "SAAB" letters on it. The muffler is actually made my Remus, Austria.

The installation is very straightforward. Raise the car, undo the nuts on the flex pipe and seven hangers that hold the centre pipe and the muffler. Nothing exciting to shoot here.

17.08.2004: Old exhaust
This is how the old exhaust looked like. Functional but boring. My car needs a washing too.
