    I'm not sure if I'm doing this right, but Hello to Everyone on the forum. I bought my SAAB from a neighbour of my mother-in-law, it was being sold due to the arrival of a company vehicle - luckily for me I was the first to find out about it, and bought it. I'ts a late 2007, 9-3 Aero Cabriolet...

    Hi folks, Recently signed up to the forum and happy to be aboard. I have owned several Saab’s over the past 25 years starting with a 900 T16 in grey and tuned by Abbot (back in 1993). Then a 9000cs (lovely comfy barge) and as a temporary wagon a lovely weather beaten 900i 16v. All great cars...

    Hi All, Following the sale of my Z4 last year I'm really missing convertible ownership and realised I really could do with 4 seats rather than 2! I used to own a 55 plate Saab convertible and I'm feeling the need to scratch the Saab itch again... I've got my eye on a 55 plate Aero that seems to...

    Hi, I've recently bought a 9-5 1.9 TiD estate. High mileage but very clean. This is my first Saab of many, many years of motoring and even more cars. Mostly British (don't laugh) including Minis when I was younger and could bend easier. I think I'm quite handy, mechanically, (needed to be...

  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all I think that I posted my arrival when I first got the car back in March - I have put 7000 miles on in that time, so now up to the heady mileage of 26k. So far, pretty happy with it - especially the mid-range performance. Not so happy about the cornering, but then I have just come from...

    I'm pretty satisfied. I've had to replace a bunch of stuff (pcv, sump drop, some mounts, tyres), in that one month but I do love the car and intend on keeping it for a while yet. I have to say thats the most I've driven in a month and i'm heading to Munich by car this weekend for the beer...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, First post on the forum so here goes. I have bought today a Saab 9-3 2.0T Vector Sport 58 plate for delivery next week. A couple of questions if I may ( I am sure there will be many more once I actually have the car), I noticed a scratch on the trim that surrounds the gear lever - I will...

    I noticed yesterday my 9-5 2.3 Vector has just clocked up 76,000 miles (I know, it's just about run-in) and it prompted me to dig out my records. I bought it in November 05, with 13k on the clock. This is the longest I've owned a car, 52 months. The mileage isn't the point of interest, but the...

    As the title says really, we have just recently made the decision to down size our 1996 900s convertible after 7 years happy ownership and started thinking about what its actually cost to own/run. I was pleasantly surprised with the out come, as apart from routine maintenance and servicing...

    Hi I am new to Saab ownership having just bought a Saab 93 convertible 04 plate. When we first viewed the car it was raining (always a good time to look at a convertible!) and I noticed that the hood appeared to absorb the rain as opposed to repelling it. (there are no issues with damp getting...

    With the announcement of the upcoming Pride of Ownership publication, I’ve finally had the incentive that I need to actually produce something worthwhile in the PoO category. I could also use a little help to determine the final entry from among the pictures that I’ve taken. I’ve seen your...

  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've just agreed to change our C9-3 TiD for a petrol '04 9-3 Sport Saloon because it represented the best blend between what I liked about the C9-3 and what my wife liked about more modern designs. We've bought something described as a 1.8t Arc T; the garage said that it was some kind of...
