100.000 km

My 9-3 convertible is out of it's teen age kilometers. Symbolically on the way to the Saab Session Slovakia through the weekend I've reached the 100.000 km.

From these I did 61.000 km, the rest was driven by the previous owner. 

The summary of services needed through the 100.000 kilometers is really quick : besides the regularly changed parts and fluids only 2 things had to be changed : xenon bulbs and the battery. This is a very good result. Only one other car in my experience achieved that.

The Saab 9-3 Convertible Aero has brought a lot of fun as well as several magical moments. Without it I would never discover manz parts parts in close and also distant locations.

Me and my girlfriend were on it around a fairly large part of Europe. Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia and Sweden. Longest drive non-stop ~1260 km to Amsterdam, longest drive overall ~1450 km to Trollhattan with a break on the ferry (Rostock - Trelleborg). Longest drive without roof ~440 km (Passau - Bratislava, through southern Czech Republic).

It is in top condition at the moment. Hopely it stays so, I am doing for it what I can.

I've ordered two things from Maptun as a gift to this "anniversary". More to that later.


  1. Congratulations!

    My CV has "only" 86,760 km...meaning, she is 18 or something...
