eSID - extended Saab Information Display

The "eSID" is a tool that can be integrated into a Saab 9-3 vehicle from 2003-2014 and enhances the Saab driving experience by collecting internal hidden car data and present it to the driver on the built-in SID (Saab Information Display) located near the windscreen (2003-2006) or in the instrument cluster (2007-2014)

eSID2/eSID3 works on Saab NG9-3 2007-2014 with the face lifted interior and is easily installed under less than a minute.

eSID 03-06 works on Saab NG9-3 2003-2006 and the installation requires some additional wiring and is typically installed under less than 2 hours.

eSID 9-5 works on Saab OG9-3 1998-2003 and Saab OG9-5 1998-2010 and the installation requires some additional wiring and is typically installed in 2-3 hours.

A word from the creator: I am a great fan of Saab cars in general and the classic Saab 900 in particular. I live in Sweden, where Saab cars are commonly found and i own a couple of them myself: a low-mileage 900 Aero/SPG MY88 (first used as an internal emission test-car at Saab-Scania AB, a 900 Aero/SPG MY85 which is currenly undertaking a rather crazy restoration,a 9-3 SS Aero St5+ 320hp/450Nm MY2004, a 9-3 SC Aero Hirsch MY2009 and a 9-5 SC Vector 2.3T MY2006
