    Right, I need help with a serious issue.....what to replace the Saab 9-3 with.. I have a 9-3 SS Vector TiD 150, but unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your position) I only commute 4 miles each way a day...subsequently the diesel is not being used properly and I'm fearful that I'm...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Had B6 shocks on my previous 02 9-3 Aero and although the control was astonishing the ride quality was a bit harsh ( could have been the Aero springs). I want to retain comfort with a slight improvement over stock ( worn stock in my case) and the B4 looks the obvious choice. I don't want it...

    Hi Guys, I'm having some trouble deciding what to do with the wheels for my car and thought you might be able to help me decide. At the moment I have the standard wheels on my car which look ok but don't make the car look as special as I’d like, I also have a set of 5 new shape Ford Focus RS...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi. I'm looking to replace an autobox for a 9-5 se (1998). The service history shows the current box was replaced four years ago and has the part number 512159. This appears to be from a 2000 model. As more than one type of gearbox is compatable then ,does anyone know where I can get a list of...

    Im thinking of changing the wheels on my 9-5 HOT Aero 2006. I've had the car aroumd 4 months after converting VW ownership for quite a few years. As im sure you know there are lots of after market replica wheels for VAG cars, does anybody know if there any replica Hirsch wheels available...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm due to get the front boots replaced on my 04 93 2.2 TiD Arc this week, is it really worth me paying the extra to get a good brand of tyre for a car that spends half its life on the M62 and doesnt get driven hard or is it a false economy? The car has the 16" 'Spider' style wheels
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)

  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Help needed to select best alloys for my viggen 'vert. Which of these would you choose: 1) 6 spoke nail (right time period, but 'heavy' to look at and probably actually heavy 2) anniversary (wrong time period, but saab-ish) 3) non-Saab (vauxhall VXR - actually look good) 4) double evo (right...
  16. Saabscene: Performance
    Hi, Wonder if anyone has any good recommendations for best tyre choice for Viggen vert (2000)- I had a Viggen coupe prior to this which still had the standard oem fit P215/45 ZR 17 Dunlop SP Sport 2000- which I never had any probs with to be honest. The Vig Ive just bought has a bizarre...
  17. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi all I have been getting conflicting info on the correct type of oil to use in my manual box. It works (almost) perfectly well but as it has almost 250k's, it is starting to sound a bit noisy/raw at lower speeds/gears. (Sorta ruins the refinement). This car has been beautifully maintained...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Having had sedate comfy Saab 9000s like CSE LPT for the past 15 years I recently bought a July 2005 Saab-95 Sport Estate auto. The family likes the fresher look of the 95 Sport but the seating and ride is definitely harder. The current tyre fit is: Front: Pirelli P6000 225/45/R17 94 W...
