  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I’ve currently got a 05 plate vectra and I’m looking at getting something new, always wanted a Saab however I want it to ride as comfortably as my Vectra. For health reasons I need as comfortable car I can get, so with the Saab I was looking at standard suspension with 16” wheels, is that going...

    I have been searching for a canny while now, on various sites, yet I am still non the wiser. I have just bought a 55 plate Vector Convertible., and LOVE it, and was wondering, can Comfort Close can actually be enabled here in the UK, and if so, does anyone have any ideas on where I could get...

    Is it just me or does the comfort open/close feature only work on the front windows or should it work on all of them ? I can understand it for open but i'd have expected close, to close all windows ! (as it does on every other car i've owned ). Andy

    I have comfort open on my 05 vector convertible - which basically opens the hood and brings all the windows down for those who don't refer to it as comfort open. When I was looking around for my Saab, I came across a car that had comfort open and close (I nearly bought it, were it not for the...

    Had a close call last night I must have accidently activated comfort opening of my windows and sunroof as I walked away from my car (in my pocket)?? Luckily it didn't rain last night (it has been all week), it was a bit damp with condensation but no where near as bad as it could have been! My...

    Is Comfort Opening (where a long press of the button opens all the windows as well) programmable via Tech II or is there hardware needing fitting ? I'm off to my local indy next week to get the aux-in programmed into the stereo and if he can set comfort opening/closing too, that would be good.

    Hello All, I've got a 2001 2.2 TiD SE with 17" alloy wheels and I find that controlling the car on our local country lanes take considerably more effort that I'd prefer it to. On motorways and smooth surfaces it's fine, although with the current tyres that I inherited with the car it does tend...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I've two questions (apologies if I should put them in seperate messages).... 1. I was told by the local dealer that my Saab 93 Convertible Linear (1.8T) can be chipped to provide the same output as the Saab 93 Aero, and it still be under warrenty. He said it cost something like £800. Does...

    Just had my key fobs looked at as one wasn't working. They reprogrammed something and now the passanger door window doen't go down with all the others on confort open. Is it possible for me to correct this or is it a garage job? Thanks

    Since I got my 93ss, the comfort closing hasn't worked properly on the rear windows, ie: 1. The button on the key fob doesn't close the rear windows, only the front ones and sunroof. 2. If I operate the window switches on the rear doors, the comfort closing works. 3. Using the window switches...

    Hi can anyone tell me if the comfort opening soft top is a factory fit option only or can it be added at a later date. I have tried phoning a local Saab dealer - one person said he thought it could be programmed in another person said no it was a factory fit only - anyone got any ideas. Have...

    I have a 9-3, 1.8t (04), is it possible to have the remote programmed for comfort closing windows. The dealer has said no, I am sure this must be possible. Also I have just been quoted £470 for a service, which a think is day light robbery. My last car was a freelander and that cost £265.

    Started from Munich at 10.30 last night, arrived in Holland at 9am this morning, 10 1/2 hours with breaks and traffic, so to quote Roy Orbison "I drove all night" added 530 miles to the clock in one go.. Apart from feeling bleary eyed, I am not suffering from staying in the driver's seat...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a Saab 9-3 Convertible 2001 2.0t SE and am about to replace all 4 tyres. I think the standard size should be 205/50/R16 (there is a mix of 55 on the back and 50 on the front at the moment - previous owner so don't ask), if someone could confirm this size and speed rating of 91W as...

    I am still not happy with the cabin vibrations that I get in my 9k Aero, especially at motorway speeds. I am thinking of removing some of the poly bushes that I have recently had fitted. I have got the following: Abbott front rear wishbones Superflex front front wishbone Superflex front and...

    Having stage 1'd my 2.3 CSE I intend to replace bushes, discs, pads, springs, dampers etc. on an as required basis. 112000 miles at present.(Or as cash becomes available ) I "make progress" but like to think that it is sensible and safe, I rarely indulge in traffic light grands prix, and...
