Car Model: 2008 9-3 1.9 ttid 180 aero
Hi all, new to your site and new to saab ownership. This is my first post so please be kind. Just purchased a 2008 9-3 1.9 ttid 180 and I am in the process of fixing up the bodywork etc. I have the 6 piece kit from Maxton for the Turbo x and have already ordered the rear lower Turbo x diffuser to allow fitment of the 3 rear parts of the kit, I think the sides won't be a problem but the front is were my problem lies. I have the front bumper cover off and stripped including the Aero lower grill. To get the Maxton front lip splitter to fit/look right will I require the two Turbo x lower grills as it doesn't look right with the Aero one attached? Also do I need anything else to complete this, maybe an existing lower piece? Lastly where is the best place to get them price wise? Sorry for going on, didn't want to forget anything. Thanks guys

Welcome to UKS, I cannot help with your query but I have moved it to a more appropriate section of the forum.

Not everyone with tech knowledge for your model visits ''Introductions'', so questions such as yours are best asked in the appropriate section.

Workshop for running gear, mechanical, electrical etc...

Spit & Polish Room for anything body or bodywork related.

Pretty sure the TX lower grille is a 2-piece item ("mouth" part and the lower lip) and they don't work sepearatly. It's why the hirsch lower "mouth" grille isn't compatible with the TX.

Yeah, the Tx is a two piece lower grill, the front and back. I need to know if they are compatible with the Aero bumper cover?
