In response to launching it’s new 9-5, Saab has announced that it will be offering owners of older 9-5s a chance to upgrade their existing cars via an accessories promotion program through dealers.

The program, which covers models up until 1998, includes items such as engine tuning kits, alloy wheels, body upgrades, cargo items and other features. These are genuine Saab parts and available through dealers.

However, there is a catch. At present this offer is only open to UK Saab owners, but if it’s successful, then don’t be surprised to see something similar spread to other markets, including ours.

We know the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta is more affordable than last year’s car, but really, $5995? That’s the price that three individual cars will be offered when sold through the Gilt Groupe as part of a special promotion.

The first car will be available for sale in a three-day flash sale program (December 15, 16 and 17).

On the first day, the sale will only be accessible via Gilt mobile phone apps on the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices; from December 16th it will be made available on Gilt.com.

Volkswagen is the first automaker  to offer vehicles for sale on Gilt, ,a flash based website that peddles ‘premium’ products to its members. Perhaps it’s a sign of things to come.
