                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—662—1

                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                      of the Vehicle Code


                                  Hirsch Performance AG
                       Software Performance Upgrade 9—3 2.071 240hp

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of
the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Software Performance
Upgrade 9—3 2.07 240hp manufactured and marketed by Hirsch Performance Products of
Ziurcher Strasse 202, 9014 St. Gallen, Switzerland, has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of required motor vehiclie pollution control devices and, therefore, is exempt
from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the Saab passenger cars
listed in Exhibit A.

The Software Performance Upgrade 9—3 2.01 240hp is a modified software calibration that is
designed to provide increases in maximum horsepower and torque for the Saab vehicle
models listed in the enclosed Exhibit A. The software calibration is uploaded from the
Internet to the vehicle‘s engine control unit via the on—board diagnostic connector and Hirsch
Performance AG‘s IPRO programming tool. The calibration modifies parameters for the
vehicles‘ air flow, fuel flow, and ignition timing. This modification can only be performed by
Saab dealerships. Consumers themselves are not able to directly purchase either the
calibration or the programming tool.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Software
Performance Upgrade 9—3 2.07 240hp will not recommend tuning the vehicle to
specifications different from those of Hirsch Performance AG.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the devices, as exempted by the Air
Resources Board, that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pollution control
system shail invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of these devices using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or marketing of this device for an application other than those listed in this Executive
Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

                                                   «2.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that the use of these
devices may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This exemption is issued based on previously submitted emissions test data from an
independent laboratory on a 2008 model year Saab 9—3 Sportcombi (Test Group
8GMXVO2.3001) certified to the Low Emission Vehicle II Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II LEV)
and Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) standards:

Test results showed that the Software Performance Upgrade 9—3 2.0T 240hp when installed
on the vehicle did not cause exhaust emissions to exceed the applicable emission standards
during the Cold Start Federal Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on
On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) testing conducted on a fully OBD II—compliant 2010 Saab
9—3 vehicle (Test Group AGMXVO2.0004). Software Performance Upgrade 9—3 2.01T 240hp
when installed on the test vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II
monitoring.

The Air Resources Board reserves the right in the future to review this Executive Order and
the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on or modified part
continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California Code of Regulations,
Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR
RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE SOFTWARE
PERFORMANCE UPGRADE 9—3 2.0T 240HP.

No claims of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board" may be made with
respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.
