    Re: Is it a big risk??

    Re: what does the 9-3 stand for?

    these are just model numbers in the 80's / 90's there used to be the Saab 900 and Saab 9000, but these were then replaced with the 93 (Nine Three) and 95 (Nine Five)

    i think this was GM's attempt...
  6. Re: Saab 9-3 2.0T Aero Auto problem with start and P0171 code

    this is completly pointless comment but i felt i had to point out that if its truely the 175bhp then its not the aero model you have, if that actually makes any difference to things it will be the...
  7. Re: Does the 9-3 Come with a auto lights control as an extra ?

    i have auto lights on my insignia, and dont really see the advantage to be honest
  9. Re: Does the 9-3 Come with a auto lights control as an extra ?

    Re: Bluetooth issues

    to be honest the best bet is to look at a Parrot CK3100 or similar piece of kit, with the correct adapter attached to it then it just plugs into the TEL1 connector thats in the passenger footwell...
  11. Re: 2007 9-3 1.9 TID Vector sport estate ignition

    Re: Saab 93 2008

    the big change between the two cars in my mind is the audio system, your old one uses an optical loop so its virtually impossible to just change the head unit whereas the 2008 is more normal and a...

    Re: Creaking soft top

    my 2009 one used to rattle (i assume the locking mechanism was loose from time to time) a swift hit on it with my hand then stoped it from rattling, but it was never a creaking noise
