  2. New Member Introductions.
    Anybody have any advise for insurance companies that will insure a remapped car? I have a 120bhp 93 Sportwagon which I'm finding a bit underpowered. Happy at 70mph, but a bit slow to get there. Direct Line won't insure me. Any ideas appreciated.
  3. Saab 95 & 96 Two stroke and V4 (1949 - 1980)
    Hi all, Two weeks ago I was hit head-on while driving our 1962 95 bull nose. Now I have the back-and-forth with the insurance company. It was a very good example and very original. How to value it? Any evidence would be appreciated...
  4. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Quick question, I've got 235/45/17 97W's on the front wheel of the 9-3 I bought. Looking through the book and inside the car it's saying standard is 225/45/17 94W. I'm wondering what difference this makes to the driving, and also if it invalidates my insurance with the car not being 'standard'...

    After a bump in my '08 Saab 9-3 (bumper,grills and bonnet) it has been declared a category D write off. I was thinking of settling with my insurers (Swiftcover) and getting the car back and getting it repaired myself. Has anyone done anything similar and who did you then insure it with? I'd...

    Hi Guys, I have just bought a 9-3 Aero and obviously i had to do all of the usual phoning around and playing one against another.... you know how it goes?! I ended up getting a good quote from Aviva, but along the way i tried the Co-op insurance service. After all of the normal questions...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just quoted my MY2002 Aero with Adrian Flux whose website infers great prices for performance cars ( they show some very keen prices as typical examples so I called them up) etc......well they were nearly twice my renewal quote with Direct Line! Disapointing as I cant think of a single thing I...

    Have just received the renewal notice for my STG 3 Aero. It's gone up 25% as opposed to c.5% in the last few years. I am with Chris Knott and have found them excellent. They tell me this is a general uplift on all policies and i'm pretty lucky cos many have gone up by as much as 40%. Certainly...

    I have just had two blindingly good quotes for the Vert and the Sportwagon from AXA . Both are about due and with a further £28 Quidco cashback on each policy they are almost 50% the price of the existing insurer Privilege who as been very well priced for the last two years for a couple in their...

    Thought this may be of interest to some people: I haven't read all the small print but from what I've read doesn't look like too much of a rip off!!!
