    Hi everybody, newbie to Saab here. Bought a 1999 9-5 2.3SE recently. I've come from a 156GTA (hence the user name!) and want to add a few modifications to my Saab. I'm not sure if this is the right part of the forum but if not then please move it mods. I hope you don't mind if I just list the...
  7. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Just spoken to Frizzells regarding their position on modified vehicles. It was reported on Saabscene that they no longer insure cars with performance upgrades (which was a bind as they were usually very competitive due to their policy of not being concerned whether the car was modded or not)...

    Here is a list of modifications that you can do yourself on your C900 T16 or 9000 Turbo (pre DI) APC unit. I have had a lot of people asking how to mod their APC, and here one that I have tried. R = Resistor, D = Diode, C = Capacitor and Pot = Potentiometer (variable resistor) Replace R42...

    Re: Cosmetic Modifications Not a chance. The windscreen angle is completely different Whilst you can do everything given enough time and fibreglass, given the enormous mismatch between the spoiler made for a rounded surface and the saloon bootlid being a convex one, I could not imagine the...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Has anyone got a list of possible recalls, etc. that I should check for under the bonnet. If any have been missed how do you go about getting them done (without charge obviously). MY99 by the way. Thanks.
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    What, in the preference of you folks here, is probably the one best performance upgrade for the money for a MY95 2.3 LPT? I've considered an ECU upgrade, exhause modifications and/or adding a dump valve. I don't believe that my car has an intercooler.

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm an audiophile with quite a bit of experience replacing factory car stereos with high quality aftermarket components. For example, I recently removed the entire factory installed Bose system from my new Acura MDX and replaced it with top of the line Alpine head unit, a/d/s/ speakers and...

    Having stage 1'd my 2.3 CSE I intend to replace bushes, discs, pads, springs, dampers etc. on an as required basis. 112000 miles at present.(Or as cash becomes available ) I "make progress" but like to think that it is sensible and safe, I rarely indulge in traffic light grands prix, and...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Although i like the Aero i feel that it could perhaps have slightly stiffer suspension etc to help reduce body roll. Also, i have to carry heavy loads quite often (i play in a band) and i noticed that with the loads the handling was...how shall i put it...interesting! I have seen the usuall...
