    Jut thought i would pass along a bad experience i had with these folks. Ordered 2 ignition coils for my 2005 9-3. Very good price and guaranteed to work by these folks. I knew what i was getting was not OEM (as stated on site) and prob Chinese "take your chances" quality. But they guaranteed the...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Not sure if this is in the right place or not on the forum but thought could be helpful. The below exhaust system advertised on ebay is allegedly for a 9-3 SS. However, the mid section is for a 9-5 and the rear mufflers are for a 9-3 SS V6 FWD. It's a lot of money to spend to find out the...

    We all saw Daniel’s track day accident and commiserated with him after the loss brakes led him into a tyre wall. That would have been hell-ish enough for one week. Psycho Dave’s been keeping an eye on the story, and it hasn’t stopped there. In case you haven’t seen it in comments…...
  4. Saab News
    I’m a firm believer in the benefits a good track day can bring. There’s the skills learned. The respect learned. The technique. Smoothness. Braking. And aside from all that there’s the sheer, unbridled joy that a good run in your favourite ride can bring. It’s an exhilarating feeling and...

    Having recently returned from another Euro-jaunt, anyone contemplating crossing the channel may like to consider my experience of parts supply. I was having trouble starting the car after it was parked for a while when very hot (the car and the weather), and having changed the starter last year...

    Sent in by Gregg. Very, very clever. Available here, the prancing moose! Fair warning: it's a Volvo based page, but he's done some Saab variants due to popular demand.
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Having happily installed my AUX in cable last week, my car went in for it's first service today, and I'd asked if the dealer could enable the AUX in. It's a lease car, so all costs either covered by leasing company or under warranty (4 new door handles!). Just before being delivered back - get...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    There is a well known so-called SAAB specialist based near Colchester Essex who are passing-off distinctly second hand shock absorbers as "delivery mileage". They are not! - by their own admission they are of unknown mileage and one of the units sent to me was so badly pitted that it has ripped...

    Just thought I'd let you know that a foreign woman called at our door twice this evening apparently 'collecting' for the tsunami appeal. The only ID she appeared to have was a hand written bit of cardboard. If you are going to give, my advice would be to only use the website (www.dec.org.uk I...

    Cautionary notice. Beware of a maniac in a Harrods green newish 200 series four door Mercedes, who could have killed myself and Mrs Beeblebrox this morning, through cutting us up on the inside, twice, at the roundabouts. Quite an experience at the time and no chance to get the camera out of the...

    When I first got my Saab 9000 I was lucky enough to find a set of 17" alloys at my local independant saab garage, so on they went, the car was fitted with koni/abbott suspension so at first when I was suffering vibration I put it down to the setup but something was not right. So upon talking to...
  12. Saab Recommendations
    Hi All, First post - new to all this, but on Saab number 6. Just a word of warning. Used a Saab specialist for a service on my 9000. Everything ok bar a wobbly gear change - had got increasingly worse, eventually couldn't get 5th. Told them to take a look. Went to pick the car up: 'bad news...

  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The reason behind this is that last night my front door was removed in order to gain entry into my house to get my car keys. The ******** produced a gun demanding my keys but didnt get the door fully off before one of them met with my snooker cue handle, to his head. They all upped and ran to...
  15. Saabscene: Performance
    While reading a Belgian consumer magazine, I just found out today that my usual gas station here in Belgium has one the worst fuel quality. (Makro, a subsidiary of the German Metro group) The problem, which affects many gas stations in Europe, is an octane booster additive called MMT...

    Just picked up one of these second hand off Ebay. It would appear that you can only register two devices with TomTom, which the previous owner has done. Therefore, it seems to be useless to anyone! TomTom's site is extremely useful - it says"Second hand TomTom Navigator 2 products are likely...

    just had a downfallen sister around with her new 9-5 aero estate covered in little rusty marks 2 hours work later with metallic colour t-cut and zymol cleaner wax we managed to get rid of 90 % of the marks... what caused this After deep discussions it seems she takes the train twice a month and...

    A part from a rather boring subject, I'm now looking for a Limited Slip Differential (what did you think, I was talking about ) I was browsing the "net" for LSDs and found this: http://www.phantomgrip.com/ They got it for SAAB Year(s):86-93 Make/Model:Saab 9000, 900 turbo Part...
  20. Saab 99, 90 (1969 - 1984)
    Well, it has been a **** of a week at work, then I get the phone call and my 99 is ready to collect. Apparently my efforts to get her going caused more problems than is cured. Problem with the dizzy? Have a prod with a screwdriver For £25 she has been cured of her ills and she is...
