    I have been through many cars in the past and try to get something I haven't had before each time I change. I was going to break that streak this time and get another Audi to replace my current 1997 A6 Avant. I usually run cars from about 10 years old until they cost me more in a year than half...

  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, Before the 9-5 I had an Alfa Mito and I got Thule Wingbar 960 roof bars for it. Whilst I understand that both cars are animals of different species and sizes, the Wingbar specified for the 9-5 is the 969, which is basically the same but 19cm wider. Looking at pictures online, the 969...

    Hi all, Just wondering if any saab 1.9 TID owners have tried adding a tuning box and any experiences/advice to offer here. They are on e-bay for £60- £85 a go....seems too good to be true, DIY fitted in ten minutes and 30-40% bhp gain. Any advice, even if it`s STAY AWAY is welcome. Thanks Jim

  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi I am back! I now have another 1995 9000 Aero with 92K on the clock - not TCS this time. Just broke down - dead stop from 50mph. Had been running fine BUT I had noticed the odd hesitation under load the last few drives. AA called. DI cartridge OK. Fuel problem? The pump has been much noisier...

    I'm thinking of buying a 99 Turbo and would like some advice from Saab aficionados. My main concern is the availability of parts is there somewhere they are still produced or is it more the case of trying to find parts at breakers? For those of you who own a 99t how are they to live with on a...

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I'm new to the forum and have only had the car a couple of months. I had two 9-3 125BHP diesels from new a while back but this is my first petrol and it's soo much better than the Diesels were but that's another story. It's a 9-3 MY01 (X plate) 2.0 litre 185BHP Turbo which I think is a trionic 7...

    Let’s get one thing straight up front. This website wouldn’t exist without the Saab 900. There were a lot of great things Saab did over the early years. The unique design of Sixten Sason’s cars, the aircraft links. Safety before it seemed important. And then there’s the whole rally thing...

    While Swade’s a little under the weather, I’ll throw in this little somewhat meaningless post. I was going to attempt a design like this myself, post it on CafePress and see how things went. However, now I know that it will likely never happen, so I’m giving the idea to our resident T-shirt...

    Am pretty sure it was an aftermarket add on, just curious incase the insurance company ever ask. thanks

    How much attention do you pay to details on your Saab such as lighting? Questions of detail can often be used to signify how hardcore a carfan someone is. Which means I mustn’t be too big a carfan as I’d never considered my lighting to be too big a concern. I turned the switch and the lights...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi everyone. I was just wondering since the genuine saab intake was just a short metal pipe with a filter at the end, couldnt i just custom fit the filter directly to the turbo? iv'e seen boosted cars with the intake just bolted on to the turbo. will this improve performance much more than...

    I thought I'd run this idea up the flagpole and see if anyone salutes. Please leave your thoughts in comments. Gripen had the idea of adding a "Bring Back the Hatch" motif on the rear of the shirts, combined with a few other ideas that I'll get to in the next day or so. I used the BBTH...

    I am clocking up about 20k miles/year at the moment and am looking to reduce the chancellors inroads into my pockets. With an average MPG of 26-28 for my MY99 2.3LPT estate I would very much like to hear of any of you who have gone the LPG conversion route. A quick summary as follows would be...
