The Saab 9.3-II has been delivered with different brake configurations during the years of production, depending on model and engine type. The most sporty Aero and TurboX have big brakes and ventilated rear discs. The less powerful have a lighter set up. Different factory combinations of front and rear brakes were possible. These are not always consistent an may vary per model year and market. A sticker at the left B-pillar tells which brakes are fitted by the factory. All standard brakes are from ATE. Different makes were used for the discs: ATE, Bosch, Brembo. The minimum wheel size is detemined by de diameter of the discs.
