    My recently purchased 9-3 SE came with a PPC. It was bought by a previous owner back in 2006 I think. I'm expecting the car to be declared a write off following an accident the other week, and would quite like to buy another 9-3 SE, or a HoT Aero, or even a 9-5 with either a 2.0 or 2.3 litre...

    I own a 9-3 cabrio (2006 model) 150hp Tdi Saab. In mid June I bought a BSR ppc tuning kit upgrading to 184Hp and 412 Nm torque. I also purchased and fitted a JR sport filter. The car ran great for a couple of weeks, then suddenly it went in limp mode and I had to regenerate the PF. Now, after...

    I was detuning my Aero today with the PPC and while it was uploading the original tune the PPC froze at 4%. I waited for over 1 hour before accepting the inevitable and had to turn off and disconnect. I knew that this would harm the ECU but I had no other choice. The upshot of it is that I have...

    I just tuned my car with BSR PPC Stage 1. Mine's a 9-5 2.0t, all stock. Once tuned, the gears shifts are very erratic. 3rd gear kicks in at 3.5K RPM, 4th at 4.5k RPM and these are all under normal load and very gradual acceleration. Even 5th gear comes in at 4K RPM. In a very small city like...

    Hi Hope someone can advise me, am thinking of getting a BSR upgrade for my 2.0t Vector 93SS. Do these increase fuel economy, within reasonable driving conditions of course!?

  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Help, i recently bought a BSR PPC, and like an exited kid at christmas opened the parcel and went out to the garage to apply the PPC to my 04 9.3 Aero. HOW DISSAPOINTED WAS I ? All the £500 worth of plastic said was that it needed synchronising. This may be OK for some of you out there with Wi...

    Looking to get a stg1 upgrade for my M00 95 Aero estate - anyone used the BSR PPC Stg1 upgrade? Is it on par performance wise with the Maptun and Speedparts equivalents or should I give it a wide berth and stick to one of the latter?
