    New here, meet Stewie.

    Hello, I joined here last year (or two years) but I don't even remember so I figured I would "rejoin"

    I have a sweet 2005 Saab 9-3SS Arc.
    Here's what it looked like when I brought it.




    It was all fine and dandy for about 7 months. I couldn't take the stock rims anymore, so I ordered 17s, Drag Wheels DR-33 in black





    Then I felt it was lacking color in the calipers so...


    Painted them yellow, loved this look.

    Then I thought it needs some personalization so...


    Ordered a badge off the Hyundai Genesis Coupe

    I was good for another month or two until I couldn't stand the chrome grille...



    I wanted change again so I repainted the calipers to...


    Then I got tired of the black rims and sold the rims and popped on another set of factory Saab 16s for the winter.

    Welcome PRD2BDF, that's a fine looking 9-3. The blacked out grille surround gives the head lights an extra bit of visual punch. As for tinting Baja, do you do that when you live in snowy areas? I really don't know.

    Thanks guys for the kind comments!

    I want to do window tint when warmer weather is around. I'm debating whether to go darker to offset the parchment interior or just go with my regular tint, 35%.

    First, I want to get another set of 17s so I'm ready for warm weather when it comes...
