    My beloved 2005 Saab 9-3 Vector Sport TiD has just been declared a total loss following a collision with a very erratic member of the motoring public. I want to replace like for like as I found my Saab a phenomenal drive and despite it's high mileage, a wonderfully reliable and immaculate...

    Hi. I have a 2004 9-3 convertible and just bought a different steering wheel to put on it (to get rid of the out of place non matching wood grain on my wheel). The site I bought the wheel from said it came off an 06 and would fit 03-09 and probably will - I just need to know if the airbags...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    What are the actual differences mechanically? I know TiD comes in two power outputs (120 and 150 bhp) and the TTiD is 185 bhp. Is the TTiD a twin turbo? I was just wondering what enhancements could be made to a 150 bhp engine by mimicking what they do to achieve 185 bhp on the TTiD lump. Or is...

  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Sorry guys another question... I have a budget of £1,500 to buy a car and would really like to buy a Saab rather than a Ford or Vauxhall. I have some questions though: 1. What are the main differences between 1997-1998 900s and say 1998/1999 9-3s? 2. Is it realistic to be able to find a 100k...

  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Does anyone know what differnces there are between the 03 and 04 MY spec for an Aero? I think that there were a number of revisions at 04, including the breather system and a move to fully synthetic oil but I'm not sure if that was the case for the Aeros. Does anyone know? I'm looking at an...
