                                    of the Vehicle Code


                                Hirsch Performance AG
                             Software Performance Upgrade

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 manufactured and marketed by Hirsch Performance Products of Zurcher Strasse
202, 9014 St. Gallen, Switzerland, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of
required motor vehicle pollution control devices and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicie Code for the Saab Automobile AB vehicle
applications listed below.

Model Year          Model     Eng. Disp.        Part Number         Software Number

  2011              9—5          2.OL          6270004000                 GOZBC

The Software Performance Upgrade is a modified software calibration that is designed to
provide increases in maximum horsepower and torque for the listed Saab Automobile AB
vehicle models. 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 themselives are not able to directly purchase either the calibration or the IPRO
programming tool.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Software
Performance Upgrade 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 shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

devices may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data from an independent
laboratory on a 2011 model year Saab 9—5 Sedan (Test Group BSAXVO2.0002) certified to
the Low Emission Vehicle II Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV 1| ULEV) and Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) standards:

Test results showed that the Software Performance Upgrade 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 II) testing conducted the same test vehicle. The Software Performance
Upgrade when installed on this test vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its
OBD 11 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.

ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR

ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE SOFTWARE
PERFORMANCE UPGRADE.
