    Hi All , , An intermittent problem that's really beggining to bug me . My car a '04 Aero with 118k on the clock (Auto) doesn't want to restart when hot. I turn the car over and it's as though the immobiliser has kicked in:ie, the car turns over fine but doesn't "Kick". I fitted a new battery...

    Does anyone know how well EBC greenstuff pads perform on an 9000 aero? I had them on my old cosworth and were amazing. Or is there any recommendations for uprated pads from anyone?

    Hi all, Last week I fitted EBC Red hot pads to my 2000 9-5. After fitting I was disturbed to find the brake pedal going almost to the floor before any braking occurred. naturally (to me anyway) I assumed I'd screwed up a seal in the master cylinder when I forced the caliper pistons back...

    Time is fast approaching for my discs to get changed. I'm keen to convert the Aero's brakes to the 308mm Viggen setup following a test drive in a Viggen. From searching the net I can see 3 main options... OEM SAAB kit ~£300 EBC Kit ~£350 Black Diamond kit ~£320 (Though some further digging...

    Has anyone fitted the EBC grooved and blind drilled Aero discs that Elkparts sell? If so, what's the verdict? Are they better than the original Saab disc, and if so in what particular areas? Thanks.

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    DOes anyone know the Greenstuff part numbers for front and rear brake pads for 2001 9-5 Aero. EBC direct doesn't list a separate brake for Aero and it must fit 308 mm for front. No reference for rears at all. I also wonder if Redstuff is for track purpose etc? I want to upgrade but keep the car...

    Having just trawled back through previous posts about brakes, I can find lots of comment on Pagid and Ferodo but can't find feedback about EBC pads and discs. Has anyone any experience of these? I love my new 9-5 after running 9000's for many years but can really feel the extra weight when...
