eSID - extended Saab Information Display

The "eSID" is a tool that can be integrated into a Saab vehicle from 1998 to 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).

eSID3 works on Saab NG9-3 2007-2014 with the face lifted interior and is easily installed under less than a minute. No wiring is needed, its simply to connect it in the OBD connector under the steering wheel.

eSID 03-06 works on Saab NG9-3 2003-2006 and consists of one unit behind the SID near the windscreen and another other one in the OBD connector under the steering wheel. The installation requires some additional wiring to be installed and it 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 under less than 2 hours.

IPC650GW is not an eSID product like the others but a solution that enables installation of a Saab NG9-5 Instrument Cluster in a Saab 9-3 2003-2006. Modifications to the dashboard bezel is needed but no wiring, easy-to-install adapter harness included in the kit.

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
