Crashed my Saab! FULL PART OUT of a 2005 92X Aero!

Car is located in Lindenhurst IL 60046

Long story short, I've only owned this car about a month and just crashed into a highway center concrete meridian last night. Luckily I walked away unhurt.

All because people in this country don't know that car manufacturers install things called "turn signals" onto vehicles these days.
And because no one checks their blind spots before switching lanes at 70mph!  banghead mad

Anyways, the car is a 2005 Aero and i'm doing a full part out. You can either PM me or text me at 224-804-7065 with what you want and I can send pictures.

ALREADY GONE:
Drivers headlight
Front bumper
Fog lights (including button)
Steering wheel
Glove box

Why are you parting it out?  Why not just fix the rear?  The damage doesn't look all that bad

Re: Crashed my Saab! FULL PART OUT of a 2005 92X Aero!

A hit that hard can easily be $8k-$9k in damages, especially if the subframe is tweaked. The rear 1/4 panel - while one of the body parts shared with the Impreza - is a substantial cost to remove, weld new in to replace, and paint. Again, the OP doesn't note their location, so who knows what the rear strut towers look like behind that 1/4 panel. Maybe they are even damaged/destroyed at the strut mount??

It goes without saying that a tail light is also needed...  hmm

I would also suggest that the left rear suspension also should all be replaced based on the angle of that wheel. User doesn't show where they are from, but I'd guess that the best bet would be to source a used LR setup (trailing arms, control arms, axle, strut/spindle, brake, etc. for ease of removal and installation - those rear control arm bolts at the spindle can be almost impossible to remove after 12 years in service.

lol. yea it doesn't look that bad  biggrin

Agree with Krazy, that entire left side suspension + lat links for the right I'm sure, axles, body panels, taillight, possible frame damage, etc.

That's a lot

1) where you at?
2) you don't sell shit here without some feet and meat pics on that car.
3) how much you want for your leather interior?  I don't have headed seats now, but I'd also take your seat heater switches and wire harness for that too.

I will not be fixing the car, the front wheel is also kicked inwards. The cost of body repair alone is outrageous.
And as mentioned, who knows what damage was done to suspension or axles or rear diff.

It doesn't make sense to ship seats, does it?

Shipping seats would be very expensive. The previous poster above has first dibs on the seats and will be arranging pickup.

Is it Arctic Silver? If so, do you have the hood scoop trim piece thing? Also, I'm looking for a set of stock floor mats in good condition. Really just the fronts.
