  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Afternoon all, considering dpf removal (with DPF bypass @ remap), 80k ttid 2009. For those who have had it done... Any issues? How much extra smoke? How long has it been done for? How many MOTs has it passed or failed on inspection / emissions (genuine or dodgey MOT). Notable benefits? Ever...

    In the process of looking and these came up on my search: Falken HS-439 225/45 R17 94V XL BSW at £108 each - factor in about £20 per corner for fitment and that's £500 gone Any experience/comment/feedback? Thanks Peter

  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Found this on a Vauxhall forum re 3.0 v6 fuel pumps, the same engine is in a Signum and they have the same issues: Hi All, I recently went through the "obligatory" pump failure misery and thought I'd share my findings. My car is a 2004 and has done about 130K kms. (We have a Signum with the...

    Hi All, My name is John. I am new to the forum and new to own a SAAB. I have a 2001 9-3 SE. I bought it at auction and have found a great indie saab guru(but he is not cheap) I did a couple of searches for the problem i was having. I just wanted to mention my issue, what was the cause and...

  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have joined this forum today so that I can tell somebody about some fantastic service I have received from Saab UK. Don't want to go into too much detail regarding dealer etc but, I am based in the North of England. I have had my Saab 9 3 Vector Sport 150Tdi Auto for 2 1/2 years from new and...
  9. Saab News
    You’ve heard me rave about it. Now go and check out some other people raving about the 2008 Saab 9-3. —— Paul Eisenstein from The Car Connection: <blockquote>….the real question is whether the latest 9-3 is infused with that special “Saab-ness,” if you will, a distinctive ride and feel...

  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I got very close to buying a 9-5 Vector Estate - probably one about 3 or 4 years old but having looked at Saabscene I confess I am horrified at the extent of the problems and component failures that you guys seem to experience! In short it has put me off and I would welcome your feedback as I...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Right, I bought the Brink detachable and put it on today. It was a right job! I did this on a 2004 estate. The first comment is that where the instructions say remove the rear light, don't think you don't need to. There is a slight risk of cracking the light cluster. Essential tools on top of...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Following an earlier thread, and Bill J’s pioneering preventative Head gasket (blowing) surgery, I purchased an E16 socket and 3/8 to ½ adapter (to fit 3/8 E16 socket to ½ inch drive torque wrench) and re-torqued my head bolts last week. Feedback as follows..: Car 1998 2L ECO (Anniversary)...

    Last year myself (9-5) and BillJ (9000) found that the Bridgestone S03's were not good in the snow and ice. Since then a lot of people have fitted Goodyear F1's, Toyo's etc. Are they all just as scary? Our 9-3 Vector is on Michelin Pilots and my wife could not get up the hill tonight to park...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    To all/. On fairly hard pedal power, in mainly first and second gear, I get no misfiring or stuttering , but I do get a strange buzzing sort of feedback sound. Can't describe it really, a sort of cross between the sound where washing blusters fast in the wind, and an electrical breaking-up...
