I just got my regular State of Nine email in the inbox and noted that Dan is going to be at Swedish Car Day this weekend doing some work for Maptun.
This brings together some of my favourite Saaby people all in the one place. Both Maptun and State of Nine were sponsors of mine at SU. More than that, though, both companies are run by dedicated Saab nuts who just happen to be fantastic blokes, as well. I’ve met both Dan (State of Nine) and Fredrik (Maptun) on numerous occasions and the reason they’ve both been successful in the Saab aftermarket business for such a long time is twofold: they offer great stuff, and they’re great people.
And of course, Swedish Car Day, which is run by one of the best Saab guys on the planet – Pierre Belperron – is one of the best Saab gatherings I’ve had the pleasure of attending.
So whilst I no longer have any sponsorship dealings with anyone whatsoever, I’m happy to point out to those who aren’t aware, that State of Nine will be doing on-site tuning of Saab vehicles at Swedish Car Day using Maptun performance software.
There’s a few different offers on the table.
You can currently get $150 off the regular price of a Stage 1 tune. That offer lasts until Monday night (27 August).
You can also pre-order a custom tune and get it done at Swedish Car Day. State of Nine will have a specialist on site to get the job done right.
I had Maptun tuning on my 1999 Saab 9-3 Monte Carlo and I can tell you, hand on heart, that this is a first class product. If you’ve been interested in getting a little more out of your Saab and you’re in the area, then make some plans to attend Swedish Car Day and check out what State of Nine and Maptun have got to offer for the day. You won’t be disappointed in the change it makes to your Saab.
Older Saabs might need an ECU swap (like my T5 Monte did) but newer ones get the quick upgrade via the Maptuner box. How quick is it? Check the video I made a few years ago….. amazing.
This post was not solicited in any way. In fact, neither Dan, Fredrik or Pierre had any idea it was coming. I just like all three of them and am happy to show off what they’re doing.
Have a great weekend, guys.
