    As I discovered today when my 2009 1.9 TID passed the MOT the limits are dropping by a factor of six in some cases from May this year. My understanding was the new limit would be 1.5m currently 3.0m WRONG the new limits will be the plate value as shown on the passenger side door pillar label...

    Today I went to Whitlingham country park which is near Norwich, as I was paying for my pay and display ticket I noticed on the board one of the requirements for parking was that the maximum weight of vehicles in the car park shouldn't exceed 1525kg... Looking around I realised that more than...

    Will they work? IMHO, no - but there will be a lot more prosecutions. The people who drive when dangerously over the limit will still do so, the rest of us, while trying to be responsible, will just become paranoid and miserable. Will we be given more information about persistence effects? I...

    Aussie regular and SportCombi pilot, Turbin, recently won a competition and scored an opportunity to drive the Saab Turbo X at the IAIADA test track in Spain. This is an ultra-sectret test facility used by many different companies, hence there are no photos from the event as cameras were...

    Has any one else noticed how many sections of A & B class single track roads are having their speed limiits reduced from the national limit fo 60 mph down to 50 mph or is this a peculiarity to the south east? Mike

    Had a few enquiries regarding noise limits for Croft. The limit for our event is 100dBA static measured 0.5m from the exhaust at 3/4 maximum revs (so 4500 for most Saabs). This is 2dBA higher than Goodwood last year where most cars were in the 80s/low 90s, with only a couple of especially...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Well after a period of non saab ownership I am looking to get another 9000. I have been looking at a 2.0 lpt auto but I know in standard form it will be underpowered (for me anyway). My question is, how well, or not, will the autobox handle a speedparts stage 1 upgrade? To my mind, 225bhp...

    I know that 9000's with an auto box are factory limited to 200bhp - and most people are reluctant to tune much beyond this. What about ng900's, 9-3's and 9-5's with auto - are there similar factory limits - and what are the thoughts about stage tuning these? Alyn
