  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi there I have post a similar question before but I am determined to find the right set up and I am not sure if the Hirsch Springs recommended are the optimum answer. As my car is not worth anything and that I love it too much to sell it at a price that is not reflective of its talents I am...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Crickey, second post of the day already. I have a 2.8T Aero estate auto (MY 2005) and have enjoyed my time with the car which has been 20 months now. Thought I have had a few things to do on the car it has generally been thoroughly reliable. It is a standard Aero for no Hirsch upgrades. I love...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Right then, I'm new to this forum, but I've got a 2002 3.0 tdi 9-5 vector. I chipped it and got an extra 6 mpg, better drive, more power and torque, all good. I love it to bits and contrary to the horror stories, I've got a goodun, doesn't use any oil inbetween services, no dropped liners etc...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi there I'm new to the SAAB ownership scene but not new to the SAAB experience as a result of my dad's love for the brand (years of wanting one and a few years of 9-5 ownership). Sadly, my dad was killed in a accident at sea a few months ago and I have inherited his 2005 9-5 Aero. I wish...
  5. Saabscene: Performance
    Hi, I've got a 9-3 TiD (150) on 06 plate totally standard apart from ITG filter, and now wondering what I can do to improve the performance at lower speeds/revs. The car is perfect on the Mway's and really performs from say 50mph upwards, great overtaker etc. However a lot of my time is spent...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, Thinking of getting a bigger car for my expanding family & am tempted by a 9-5 Estate (currently have a 9-3 SS). Does anyone know whether any significant changes have occurred under the skin, or are they mostly cosmetic. My wife is dead against the looks of the latest model (I agree it...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I know that there have been various queries about changing AS1 stereos for AS2 or AS3 in the past, but is there anything relatively simple that can be done to improve the sound/power output whilst retaining the AS1 head unit?? Would upgrading the speakers alone make any difference? For the...
  8. Saabscene: Performance
    My back box needs replaced on the 9k Aero and I have a speedparts stage 1 already done. I can't afford to get the full JT system so I reckon it's sensible to get the cat back just now ... Is there a decent 'real' performance improvement? The spec. quotes 5bhp, but is it more responsive too...
  9. Saabscene: Performance
    Hi there, found saabscene a couple of days ago when I started looking for info about upgrading the handling of my '01 9-3 Cab to match the performance. I've been used to RWD cars in the past and have been disappointed with the torque steer of the Saab. I am also missing the MG Midget I used to...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Found this report on NewCarNet: Saab's new improved 9-3 Sport...
  11. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    This weekend. Fitted Bailey recirc dump valve. Added blue silicon Vac hose from the dump vacuum, to the vac line on the Throttle body (not the one for the timing vacuum). Used blue boost hose to connect the dump valve to the throttle body. Now I actually have dump valve, gearchanges are a lot...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Are there any easy performance upgrades? My last car was a 9000Carlsson and I miss its performance
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I own a '97 900s and am keen to improve the handling of my car. I find the steering response not as sharp as the classic 900 and wondered if anybody has any suggestions? Would simply fitting stiffer springs help, for example?
