    I´m a pretty young person. But I´ve had a thing for SAAB since i was 12. I finally have one, and I love it. Why do people always tell me Saabs are for old people. I don´get it. It drives just as good as BMW or Audi, and I believe it drives even better. I have had a BMW for 2 years and...

    Hi All, I have test driven 3(three) 9-3 estates today, allthe same mileage/price/ spec as this one. http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201232480974351/usedcars?logcode=visc This is the best of them all and, very clean and in immaculate condition, but.. there is a very slight...

    Photo Credit: Saab History The Saab sighting of the week this week depicts a diplomat driving a Saab 9-5 sedan in Washington. D.C. This is not the first diplomat to have owned a Saab as depicted at both the Embassy of Argentina and Mexico back in 2007. It’s nice to see diplomats that have so...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Folks, The speedo on my 96 2.0 speedparts stg 1 died yesterday :( a quick check confirms it's not anything nice like the connector falling off or snapped wires, boo! I've had a good read of the archives and am hoping it's just the sensor driven gear. That sensor is a serious...

    …and the winner is, No. 9! (I also like that classy UrSaab avatar that he uses.) As posted earlier, I was fortunate enough to drive the 1997 Pike’s Pike 900 Turbo!! (Even though he guessed the 1995 race, I’ll give it to him.) Swade, you can’t win the games at your own party, pal. More...

    As much fun as it was to drive the TurboX today during the media drive event, I was really, really looking forward to driving the Saabs from the GM Heritage Collection. There were several cars (pictures and stories to follow), but this one is genuinely famous. I really drove it. Today. I...

    I've been looking for on-line circuit guides as I've never even been to Croft, let a lone driven it. Not found anything useful yet, but wondered if anyone else has been round it and have any pointers? Some useful titbits I have picked up though are: [ QUOTE ] “As a track Croft is a mixture...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Our local dealer now runs a Hirsch-modified 1.9TiD as a demo car, so we took up the offer of a test drive. Very impressive - we were both amazed at the improvement. The demo car only had 400 miles on the clock, so it may be even better when run-in (mine has certainly improved over the last...

    My Ex had a Renault 5 Turbo in the late '80s. And it was her first ever car, provided by her company, after she'd learnt to drive I remember going up to London to pick it up from the HQ car park for her, driving it around slowly in traffic for a while, when it just behaved like a...

    Name your absolute worst steer ever. Mine is a Rover 25 (or 214i or whatever)... the thing has nothing going for it.. (AND IT'S STILL MADE!) when they say there are no really bad cars on sale now.... they forgot this piece of [expletive deleted]. I think donkeys probably handle better.

  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My 9-5 Aero is in for service, and I've got the above for a day. So far: Likes ----- Grunt (more than sufficient) Handling (better than mine) Economy Dislikes -------- Bit agricultural-sounding under the bonnet. Plain dash. No funky cupholder. If I could get this engine with the 9-3Aero...

    I had the pleasure of a 9-3ss Aero for the whole afternoon today I tried so hard not to like this car as a 9-5 owner.. But it didn't work! The car is fantastic! Very sharp handling, superb brake response, and incredibly refined power delivery! The chassis dynamics are in another...

    Whilst idly surfing the channels on Sky last night I caught the last 45 minutes of a film called Driven which is supposed to reflect the F1 circus. I can honestly say I have never seen such a load of [expletive deleted] in all my days, this is quite possibly the worst film I have ever seen but...

    The Driven episode due to go out on Friday 11th October will feature a test between a TVR Tamora and a Porsche Boxter. Now we all know how much Drivel likes Teutonic metal - especially Porsche and BM. Conversely, TVR always seem to get a bad press regarding reliability. There's a thread on...
