    Re: 9-3 Eyebrows - Brightness/Always on

    They are not day running lights. As you say, they are "sidelights" and come on with a switch. They will remain on if you have switch on position 1 as you would want them to if say you are pulled off...

    Re: Thinking of returning - Any advice please !!

    Facelift came late 57. If you're thinking of 58 it will be facelift anyway. Why go for the older model, unless price is an issue, as the pre facelifts are really much cheaper.

    Agree with 400ixl. My11TTID Aero. I've made cosmetic changes just to personalise, but mechanically I prefer to leave the car as is.

    Re: 1.9ttid engine

    My11 TTID Aero has now done 55k. Apart from a rear set of brakepads, it's been well serviced, shod and fuelled only. Not a single blip of any sort. Unless things start happening, probably one of the...

  7. Re: Wanted: 9-3 Diesel estate/saloon (Vector or Aero)

    Well done for digging your heels in. You'll find a good car for 6ish k. Agree with cja, he'll wait a long time for 7k.
  8. Re: Wanted: 9-3 Diesel estate/saloon (Vector or Aero)

    Sold a TTID Aero saloon with nav, elec seats.57 plate with 57k miles on clock 2 years ago for 7k. That is too high for now. Imo should be more 5.-6k, then you'll have a good value for money motor

    Re: Rear parking camera

    Chances are it's not enabled for camera. I had a 57 TTID Aero and the Saab nav was not. The only way to be sure is to remove the head unit and see if it's got a connecting port.

    Re: Rear parking camera

    Depends on make of headunit. It needs a connector for the camera kit, so some do, some dont. I have a pioneer Avic F40BT which does and it works a treat. If its the Saab Satnav youre out of luck, but...

    I think GM "killed" Victor Muller, and Saab copped it as a consequence.

    Youre talking riddles bordering on toosh.
    Saab needed GM but did not manage that relationship.

    What I'm saying is Saab has been left behind. No matter how much you berate GM, it is Saab management who failed
    to manage their situation ( including their GM relationship) and went bust. Let's...

    They are the ones who went bust and are now trying to get back into a lost market.

    Had a 18t arc with a leak in that area. Got worse and turned out to be a brake " booster" ? Only leaked after applying brakes, so couldn't find it when runing engine on a ramp.

    Had similar experience with a CIM on Ttid, and yes it's "cooked"
    Had badly feathered tyres on a 9-3ARC and it was due to worn shocks. Maybe something to check before ruining more tyres
