  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have just bought a 2004 9-3 convertible. I picked it up Saturday, got myself a very nice car it was a bit wayward on the road so I took it to the local tyre shop to line up the wheels and they promptly snapped a suspension bolt. So at the moment I don't have the car at home, however, some...

    Does the satin black on the door pillars of my 56 plate Aero have a colour code or is it just generic satin black? There's a small chip i need to fill in.

  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I have recently noticed a small patch of rust forming under the paint on the rear quarter panel of my 9-3 ttid just in front f the rear passenger side wheel arch. The is no visible damage to the surface of the paint so can npy assume it is coming from behind. Today while washing my car...

    I own a 1999 93 SE convertable and the exterior trim is fading to grey. I've used all types of dressings including Black Wow which lasts the longest but is by far not a permanent solution. So I thought I might dye the trim or paint it. The problem is which procedure is best and should I take the...

  7. Wash and Brush Up
    Hi; Nice new format ! Have just filled and can sprayed a dent next to the rear wheelarch. You don't want to know who or how ! Have looked at several Youtube tutorials on paint and polish, but cannot determine whether it is necessary to polish ( with G3/G10 ) before spraying the lacquer coat...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, I have a 2001 Silver Saab 9-3 Aero Coupe. A small rust bubble appeared on the rear wheel arch sometime ago. I repaired this and sprayed with a recommended aftermarket Saab Paint and blended it in very well (I spray aircraft components for a living so know what I am doing). The colour...

  11. Wash and Brush Up
    i've booked my Black 9-3 Aero in for a special treat, whilst its a nice clean car in bright light you can see lots of small "spiderweb" swirls on the paint. these guys use a clay bar to prep, then compound to buff out the scratchs, then a buff with a polish then a wax. I'm expecting the car to...
  12. Wash and Brush Up
    My bruvver (bless him!) got hold of a replacement - less bent - door for me but unfortunately picked it up shiny side towards him whilst wearing a metal belt buckle. This has left some minor but visible scuffs dead centre, with some base-coat showing in places. Has anybody got any pet...
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, It's a small niggle, but some of the black stuff has peeled off from my A/C controls. It's obviously not just matt black paint - it has a soft rubber like feel. Can I get touch up paint for this or is it more esoteric than conventional paint? TIA
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I bought some Saab touch up paint for my silver 9-5 (can't remember the paint code but it was definitely the right one)- the little pot with the touch up brush and lacquer- to touch up some stone chips. However- it's a really [expletive deleted] match. Anyone else had this problem? I wanna buy...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, I've noticed today that the paint appears to be wearing away from my parking sensors on my 2007 9-3. I can see silver starting to appear beneath the paint. They are the standard black parking sensors. Has anyone got any advice on how I can make them black again? I've no idea why this...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have managed to get a set of alloy Aniversary wheels for my Anniverary MY98. They do need refurbishing though. The body colour code is 268 and trim code is K37 according to the sticker in the rear door. Can anyone confirm the paint code is the same for the wheels as my Silver Annniversary...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    How good is the red paint used by Saab?? In the past it has been told that the red paint used on cars is not terribly good when it comes to their life and lusture - cars painted red have been known to fade, and not hold their colour and sheen past about 4 years. I wondered therefore whether...
