I got an email in from an excited Rick T this morning. And so it goes:
Fantastic idea for the modified SAAB theme this month… I am finally ready to take the plunge and upgrade my 9-5, but am looking for a reputable shop in Los Angeles. I thought this might be a great way to support the local dealers and shops by asking site readers for info and for upgrade recommendations.
Am I missing something, and is this already on the site? Since Saab is a smaller brand, it is sometimes a bit more difficult to find worthy upgrades and shops in the local areas.
I am looking for a place in the Los Angeles area.
So, Angelenos, is there any help available for Rick in the LA area?
I’m tending to think that if Rick wants to source his go-faster bits in the US he may have to shop elsewhere and have the installations done by a good local guy.
Genuine Saab do their own performance bits and are an agent for Nordic. They’re in Missouri.
There’s also Jak Stoll, who’s in North Carolina.
Group 9 Performance are located in New Jersey and appear to have some tie-in with MapTun.
I’m not up to date with how many tuners there are located in the US, so any other advice would be appreciated, by me and by Rick.
