    Hi Guys (newbie here) Just here to post for my dad as he is in the market for looking to buy tyres online but he isn't the most tech-savvy person and as I'm not much of a car enthusiast either I thought going to forums for help would be best So all I'm asking is if there is any decent tyre...

I've got it set up on UKS website but I can't find it on here. Appologies if it's glaringly obvious...

    Hello everybody, just bought a 2010 9-3 Sportwagon 1.9TiD Turbo Edition. Absolutely loving the car but just a quick question about one of the badges on the back. It has a "VTS" badge on the lower right side of the boot. Just wondering if anyone knows what this stands for?

    Are the brake pins meant to be megga tight ? I had to use a mallet & a punch to gettem out & a Press to gettem back in again after cleaning & lubing, I thought the idea was they could slide freely in their rubber surround ? ........ I didn't get nearly as much done as I planned, what with...

    SID popped up today with 'right dripped bulb failure'. Checked handbook and it appears I need a H7 bulb but apparently it could be either halogen or xenon. How do I know which is which? Are they interchangeable? Is there much difference between the two?

    Hi guys, Been reading quite a bit about the importance of having 2 keys (car only has one at the minute), but what I can't seem to find out, is does the blade have any electronics in it at all?
