    The main beam on my 2004 9-3 Aero Conv is like a searchlight but the dip beam is as much use as a tea light in a hurricane. Short of going for a full upgrade to HiD can anyone recommend a way of improving the dip beam performance. Headlights themselves are perfect with no damage to the...
  2. Saab News
    Whilst one of Saab’s iconic dealerships closed its doors in Seattle last week, there’s a ray of hope just north of the Canada/US border. What was formerly Lansdowne Saab was recently taken over by the Dueck family of GM dealerships. They have a long history, a good name in Vancouver and more...

    Two firsts for me here, one I'm a new Saab owner & second this is my first time on Saabscene. I have just bought a 2004 9-5 2.2tid Linear sport estate, 120 bhp & would like to have the 145bhp Hirsch conversion done. Before I go spend £900 or so does anyone have any experiance of this or know of...

  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Evening I had a lift in a modified Aero last week and couldn't beleive how well it went round corners compared to mine, which is completely standard, and got me thinking I should do something to mine. I have been looking around this and the Abbott Racing site. I have formed a list and would...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, just bought my first 9000, a low mileage - 70k single owner 2.0t CD. Very impressed with build quality. However 2 things I want to change and would appreciate some experience. Firstly i would like to improve the handling without too much sacrifice to comfort. And secondly the drivers...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Ok so I've had the car for 6 months now and I've tried convincing myself that the stereo is great but it's just not happening. I have a 2000 9-5 Aero, with the Harmon Kardon set up and it just doesn't do it for me - the bass is great, the volume is great but the sound just seems a bit muffled -...
  8. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Can anyone advise on the following: Engine B202 16v with intercooler c900 '91, a mate is looking to improve performance. I've read somewhere that you can take the cylinder head from a 9000, the mate has recently done this but found the valves to be the same size. Either someone else has already...

  10. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    As intercooler efficiency has such an influence on engine output, I reason that even relativly small improvements on the standard system could have a very cost effective benefit, although the improvement is not likely to be very great. The standard installation is not wonderful by any stretch...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I have recently purchased a 1998 9-3 Convertible, 2.3 Auto. On a long run keeping it steady I managed to squeeze 36.0mpg, but around town its averaging 25.0 mpg - does this sound about right?? Is there anything I can do to this engine to improve performance/mpg - i.e is a K&N filter worth...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 98 saloon LPT is a nice cruiser but doesn't seem to like the roundabouts on the A316 in London. I read somewhere you can replace the bushes on all 4 wheels which reduces roll and improves ride. Anyone any experience of this and is it worth the money? Can you do it yourself easily? If it's...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've never been a huge fan of the NG900 / 9-3, and found the NG900's styling a huge disappointment when it was released. This morning, though, I saw a NG900 on the way to work that has made me reconsider. It was a 3-door, with immaculate and polished Scarabe Green bodywork, spotless Viking...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I bought my Aero second hand and never gave much thought to the sound system assuming that on such a good car the system should be pretty good anyway. However the ES1-4 is a very poor sound system It looks like there's a space for a couple of 6x9's under the parcel shelf. Can you just...
