  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 2007 1.9 TID Z19DTH 150 BHP and have been considering swapping the manifold and getting rid of the dreaded flaps. I know the most recent part number for our cars is 55210201 and there are loads of different ones based on different car variants Astra/Vectra/Alfa/Fiat? I spotted the...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, Before the 9-5 I had an Alfa Mito and I got Thule Wingbar 960 roof bars for it. Whilst I understand that both cars are animals of different species and sizes, the Wingbar specified for the 9-5 is the 969, which is basically the same but 19cm wider. Looking at pictures online, the 969...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Me again. Having problems with the 9-3 again. After raving about the magic cure to the rattling/noisy suspension I am at my wits end with the noise. When driving over bumps, pronounced road markings or small holes the off side front sounds like it is going to fall off. It crashes and rattles as...

    Being at a loose end today, I figured it must be time to play with the Alfa a little. One of the jobs I’ve always wanted to do was to paint the airbox. So, with no idea of what I was doing and a couple of cans of paint - off I went. I didn’t take a photo before I started, but here’s a photo...

    I promise this isn’t going to turn into an Alfa site, but…… Greetings from Melbourne, town of my birth and home of the greatest football code EVER. I arrived here this morning on an early flight and quickly made my way out to the leafy hillside suburb of Eltham, where a 1.7 litre 16 valve...

    OK, this one doesn’t strictly fit in with the “I drove a ….” category, but I didn’t know where else to put it. And I’d find it very hard to print if it denigrated Alfas at all anyway, given my love for them. But it is a good Saab story and shows how they’ve offered the right car in the right...

    I have a feeling there's going to be a few philosophical pices about Saab coming up.... ---------- This isn't one of those "I recently drove and XXXX and here's why I'd still buy a Saab" entries. I wish it was. It'd mean I'd recently driven an Alfa, and that would be very, very good...

    I've asked this over on the Alfa forum (, so only fair to ask here... Right, the Fiat Coupe has to go cos a baby's on the way. So - what to replace it with? A 166 or a Saab 9-5? Both similar age, size and cost. It'll...

    I know this is a new model, but has anyone any comments ? Looks like a great car, will take a test drive soon. I know they depreciate massively but it would be a lease, thinking about the diesel.

  11. Saab News "To beat its deadly — and somewhat more successful — rival from Bavaria, Alfa turned to GM for help. This decision was a natural follow-on from Alfa's owner, Fiat's, brief alliance with the General. During their relationship, GM and...

    Saw one of those new Alfa Romeo GTs going north on the M11 at the weekend. Shadowed it for a mile just to have a good look. I must say it's an absolute stunner. What Car? quotes dealers not offering any discount on this model. Must be high demand. Rotten projected residuals though

    Hi Hallo Saab Fans Which GM/Saab Plattform ist this? Possible the new Epsilon 2: ----------- The GM 'Premium' platform based 156 replacement will make its debut late next year. All the 158s will be rear wheel drive except the Quadrifoglio but the Sportwagon version will offer the option of...
