    As the title says, what does everyone do for a living? I'll start it off, I work for an aerospace firm called cav aerospace in a place called consett not far from Newcastle upon Tyne, I set up long beds (upto 80 ft long) for cnc milling machines that mill the insides of plane wings. It can...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    So nearly 3 weeks into owing my Saab and so far so good. I thought buying a Saab privately was taking a chance but I decided to go for it. I think the previous owner decided to sell it due to insurance costs (£2700 for insurance!!!). After checking over he car I think this car has worried people...

    I know that some of you will already have read Leon's views on the aux-in device, but I've taken some pictures during fitting so you can see what you're getting. Saabphotos is throwing a wobbler when I create an album so this is on Photobucket: Aux-In for Saab 9-5 The instructions are...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I owned a 96 900 for 11 years and took it from 30k to 187k before I traded in for a Citroen C3 18months ago. Bottom line is it's FAR too small now we have a 9 month old and I'd love to drive a Saab again. Have set my sights on a 2005 ish 9-5 auto estate due to budget. Two estates have caught my...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well after nearly 7 months ownership I must say that the 'Saabscene only' Hirsch Aero has me completely hooked. I'm totally at home with her now, knowing how far I can push her into corners (the Hirsch suspension and Hirsch alloys are sublime) and just how to get the best out of the autobox. I...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Ok I knew what I was in for with this model a parts bin special to fill a gap in the model range. Not a proper Saab, but for £300 it’s a lot of car for a super clean 900s Coupe in Silver full Saab history. Owned and loved by the obligatory old Gentleman in this case a veteran WWII navy man...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    After many years of owning 9-3s I am looking at getting a 2005 9-5 automatic 2.2 diesel. I took one for a test drive last weekend, 40K on the clock, but was dissapointed with the 2.2 engine, it really rattled on acceleration. I kmow its only 120bhp but what are they like to use day to day ...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I got fed up with the haedlamps being permanantly on in our 2006 Aero so eventually got round to studying the handbook.The remedy seemed easy-just remove fuse 35.This seemed within my limited skills ;however when I opened the fusebox,I noted that fuse 35 slot was empty! Any of you guys got any...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Being pretty new here and having joined the Saab fold with a 9-5 Aero Estate, i thought it would be worth a quick running report. I spent a good few months looking for an Aero wagon in my budget and looked at a fair few cars - for those looking to buy, be careful as alot appear to be hiding...

  15. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    We're considering adding a third car to the stable (which is currently a 9000 and a Jeep Cherokee). We're considering a C900. This is for two reasons; we've always liked them, and we'd like a manual that is insurable for #1 daughter (17, and learning) - the other two are automatics. However...

  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Well, it is twelve days since we collected our 1999 9-3 2.0SE (HOT) SPORT which I think is about the correct designation? I have driven about 1500 miles in that time, about 600 of those were done yesterday from Scotland to the south coast of sassenachland. After some 11 hours in the car I got...
