It was probably the Artic Silver color since there is no white color in the 9-2X lineup.

Doh, I meant black just like mine!!!

I did spot an Arctic Silver Aero on Milwaukee Rd headed north around noon today in Libertyville. A woman was driving, she definitely noticed mine as well.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

First time I ever saw a 9-2x was on my way home through Rogers Park going north on Sheridan Road don't remember if it was a Aero or Liner, but this was back in April of this year.  I have not seen any colors other then Silver, Black, or Satin Gray (My car) driving on the road.  Saw a Blue Linear on the lot at Perillo Saab where I bought mine, but no colors on the road.  I seem to have the only Satin Gray Linear as all others I have seen are mostly Silver Aero's.  I do a reverse commute from Lincoln Park to Wheeling, so if you are on Milwaukee Avenue between 8 and 9 a.m. give me a honk:D

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

I got on and off the highway today next to Black Aero with out the sport package with roof racks - today on i/90 and we both took the same exit at Jackson.


I also have seen a couple of linears and another Silver Aero in Lincoln Park

These cars are not to rare here in Chicago - with the largest SAAB Dealers in the area.

Hmmm, I think that was me on 94 headed south. I remember your plate and thule roof rack. But I don't have a roof rack. I nodded to you and you acknowledged. Nice looking car with that rack.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

Spotted a red 9-2X on Clark, near Wrigley Field, around 1.30. It had some bumper stickers on it. I couldn't tell if it was an Aero though, it was too far away.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

Ok, I saw a Satin Linear driving on dempster today around 5:45 or so and then when I was turning on to Sheridan Road from Juneway Ter in Rogers Park I saw a Black Aero with roof racks. That is the first 9-2 I have seen in the immediate area in my 'hood....

Nope.. Red Linear here... Very very likely it was me, what time of day?  I'm often over at Rock Bottom there...

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

Walking with my friend, spotted an Artic Silver Aero on the corner of Gunnison and Fairfield (near California and Lawrence) at 6.01 today in the evening. The driver was wearing eyeglasses.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

While on the way to work spotted a Midnight Black Mica 9-2X Aero with a bike roof rack parked on Addison near Racine around 1.00. It looked like it had Wisconsin temporary plates.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

I saw a silver linear off algonquin in hoffman/palatine just about 20 minutes ago.  My first random spottin in the couple months I've had mine.  Driver didnt seem interested, but I think I saw him from more of a distance.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

Saw a blue aero in the southbound shoulder of I355 today in between north ave and roosevelt roads. I was heading northbound. The car was off to the side with another car.



WHO was it? It's funny how this car is so recognizable even from a distance. My GF liked the color and said it was pretty, FYI.banana
