  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just wanted to know how low can I go in regards to springs? Shocks will changed all round to bilstein b8s. I know the figures below are based on standard suspension, Aero already sits slightly lower (10mm lower compared to normal suspension) H&R Springs - 40mm Maptun Springs - 35mm Eibach -...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I have just bought a 2.8T Convertible 2006. I know that there is a modification nomber 260-2722 to repalce two coolant pipes and the header tank. Spoke to my local dealer and after a sharp intake of breath (although they still service and sell parts) said that they are no longer a dealer...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just picked up the above suffering from a couple of minor faults. It was the right price because the power steering pipe had done it's usual trick of rusting through and spraying PAS fluid everywhere. That isn't a problem, the new one arrived in the post this morning and I've changed them on a...

  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi guys, I've tried the search function, but not had any luck. Seem to remember having seen a topic where somebody posted something about fitting a diesel intake to a petrol car (T5 in this case) to improve throttle response as the intake is slightly larger. Does this ring any bells with...

I got a quote from A Flux they quoted me £390 with protected no claims and class 1 business use, rang Direct...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all I've got my dashboard out at the moment as I have to replace the heater matrix due to it leaking. While I am doing this I want to sort out the stiffness in the air vent selector to avoid breaking another toilet role holder. I understand there is a mod that can be done in-situ without...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I have read some of the threads on here on LPG conversions and as I am seriously thinking about this because of the cost savings, I want to briefly get your opinion. Mine is a 9000 CSE 2.3 eco Turbo automatic with 170 500 miles on the clock from December 96. I bought it in 2005 with 80 000...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just found a post during a search and wondered if anyone knows if there is a list somewhere of these mods. or perhaps we could start one? Apparantly, C4 is marked with a 7 or 8 if a pre Dec. 1999 ECU has been modified. B5 and C5 refer to earlier attempts at improving the crankcase breathing...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Does this sound about right for this work? To clarify the crank case breather pipe is holding shape when squeezed, and have been told there is a 'breather kit' available... £80 part and an hours labour to fit.
  13. Saabscene: Performance
    Just started modifying my 9-3 Aero (2002) by fitting lowered springs (Koni's) and was wondering how much people here have noticed their insurance going up after mods. I am currently with Direct Line (until 1st Sept) and they added £23 for the remaining 5 weeks of the policy (I am 36 with 7 years...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Thanks to this years performance bonus from work I'm looking into modding the Aero I'm aware of the main options ie Hirsch, BSR etc and am looking for any feedback anyone has on good points and / or bad points with any of the options from first hand experience. On the face of it the BSR...

    I have been talking to a local (Lincoln UK) Saab independant specialist on my reverse gear selection problem - see other posts here - and he tells me of a warranty reverse gear modification that nailed this problem. Apparently the parts are over £200 for non warranty work which obviously...

  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello I've had my 99 9-5 2.3 SE since June and have built up a few questions to ask. My first concerns the modification codes on the plate under the bonnet - my has 8 marked in the boxes B5 and C4. I think B5 refers to PCV alterrations, but what is C4? Do the '8's have any significance...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Since I haven't had to do much to my car I have not opened the bonnet too often. Today I realised that I had two modification plates stuck to the wing. The ABC 123 one I'm familiar with from my old 9-5. But there's also one with D, E & F on it. I have box D3 stamped. What's been done?
