PPS is OEM now for some parts... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I've come across the same thing. For a while, Orio was selling a Professional Parts Sweden RH motor mount as the genuine Saab one for the NG900/9-3 since the original German-made one is no longer available. I suspect that the PPS version didn't meet their standards because they no longer sell that. Orio sells what they can get. Not everything comes in the same packaging that a lot of us remember from 10-20 years ago. Some of it, like others noted, now comes in a clear plastic bag with just the part number and country of origin on it. That's how a lot of parts in a timing chain kit I bought were. I've bought several thousand dollars worth of parts from Orio in the last few years while getting a couple of 9-5s in running order and maintaining a '97 900. I've bought everything from major engine parts to trim pieces to a new front bumper. I'm sure I've seen it all, but I've yet to see a pink box. Everything I've ordered from them, including my last order from a month ago, has arrived in a normal brown cardboard box.
