    Cheers guys. Car is on a forecourt at a car supermarket, better for me to walk away and find another than hope that the mechanics at the supermarket can fix it pre-delivery. It appears (from further...

    Hi Guys,

    Long time since I posted a technical query on here!

    Been to look at some cheap higher mileage 9-3 TTiD's. One of which was very clean, had FSH but there was a "limited performance"...

    I've had problems with buckled wheels in the past that resulted in vibration between 80-90mph. That was on my old 9000 CD wearing 15x7" wheels at the time. I fitted 16x6.5" Aero's and the problem...

    Indeed, part of the reason for my falling out of love with the marque is the lack of engineering progress. Saab's attempts to deliver powerful, fuel efficient engines such as the SVC were been...

    Sadly, circumstances force me to part with what I promised myself would be my last 9000. I had intended to keep this car indefinitely. It has been used as a commuting vehicle up until 2 weeks ago.

    Reluctantly I'm having to sell my 9000 which has been owned by me since September 2006 and by Adrian for several years prior to that. Unfortunately I need something more economical to run and LPG...

    A 4WD would be possible if you had tens of thousands to throw into the project. But really, appreciate the 9000 for what it is, flawed but fun to drive. If you want 4WD, try and find a (straight, if...

    Ditto what Kev says, never seen a yellow 9000. Was it a Saab GB one-off?

    The cynic in me wonders if these restrictions are put in place to encourage people to "upgrade" to a higher powered model, rather than to preserve engine life.

    Hi,

    I had the same kit, I agree about the springs; too stiff for british roads ... they work great on the track though. The springs I've seen recommended for Billies are the Nordic/Eibach springs...

    JT 3" exhaust (bought 12 month old one second hand)
    Abbott springs + Koni adjustable shocks

    No power upgrades yet. Need to get a couple more years no claims under my belt. :o

    If you know of an exhaust fabrictor local to you, they may be able to modify the back box to put twin-finisher pipes aft of the rear silencer. Probably not a cheap option though.

    If you have a...

    It could be done. You would need to drive each turbo with two cylinders. So the spool up would be much slower but the boost at the high end could (intheory) be doubled. You could use two small...

    You need a hub for a 9000 CS with ABS, MY92 onwards. The Aero hubs were no different from the 2.0t/2.3t/2.3T cars.

    25 years ago was 1982, this was the era of the flat front 900 T8 IMO. The 99 was into the last couple of years of it's production run by then.

    30 years ago was the era of the 99 turbo for sure.

    Teardrop alloys do come up on the bay every so often. But if I were in your position I'd switch to 3-spoke 15" wheels, they are much easier to get hold of.

    The price issue is simple; more 9-5's out there than there are punters who want them.

    I'm not buying, but if I was my question would be "what caused engine failure so early into a cars life?".

    I do 6K a year with a lot of short journeys, my tyres tend to perish before I wear them out! Years ago my 89 Carlsson was wearing the outside edges of it's front tyres. This was cured by replacing...
