One of the things that’s really annoying about being here in Australia, and in the US, is that we don’t yet have Hirsch’s range of Saab products available to us. Saab in both those countries (and I’d imagine others where Hirsch isn’t sold) keep saying that they’re going to establish a relationship with Hirsch, but for reasons they like to keep close to their chest, they don’t seem to be doing so in a hurry.
There is a way to get hold of some of Hirsch’s goodies, however. Not all of them, but some.
Long-time site supporters Elkparts have a number of Hirsch products available and I don’t see any notes there that say they can’t sell them into certain markets.
Engine tuning is not available through Elkparts, but many of Hirsch’s interior and exterior products are available, as well as brake and suspension kits for certain models.
Be warned. Hirsch products aren’t cheap. They’re the only tuner backed by Saab and Hirsch modifications are generally covered by your Saab warranty, though you may want to check into that if you’re ordering from a country like Australia or the US, where there’s no official relationship with Hirsch yet.
Some products, like the leather dash pictured, could also be pretty tricky to fit on your own. They look sensational, however, and the performance products are engineered to the highest standards. Anyone who’s driven a Hirsch-tuned vehicle can tell you that they’ve got heaps of presence and buckets of response if they’ve got the engine and suspension tune-ups as well.
