  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Two days ago i bought my first ever saab. I have never drove, travelled in or, worked on a saab my whole life. After a month of scanning the endless used car websites. A black 2006 saab aero 2.8 v6 m6 caught my eye. Reluctantly i clicked on it, just like i had done a thousand times before. I...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have had some problems with my car (2001 2.0T HOT Aero 205bhp) recently but as she only has 102k and is in good condition I wanted to keep it. So I had the head gasket done 1000 miles ago and 2 weeks ago the Aircon pump ceased taking out the tensioners when the belt went. So after two big...

    Hi all. I've recently started going to the gym. When I went today I decided to buy one of the heart rate monitors they offer. It cost me £12.95 and I haven't got the first clue on how to use it. It's a techno gym thing and has T31 on it which I assume is the model. It's obviously a chest strap...

    Hi folks, Changed the plugs on my 2002 9-5 Aero today and this is what the plugs looked like. I've mostly had diesels and hadn't ever changed a spark plug until today, :eek: so i'm unsure as to what they are supposed to look like. The deposit on them appears to be a light tan colour which I...
  5. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    I had a new pair of Goodyear F1 asymetrics fitted to the front of my Aero estate in September 2009. 20,000 miles later they are down to 3mm. Nothing wrong with that I can hear you thnking - but for 6 months I've had the winter tyres fitted. I reckon that they have only covered around 12,000...
  6. Saabscene: Performance
    I am curious about the rising rate fuel pressure regulator sold by Swedish dynamics for example. It seems to me every-time you touch the fuel pressure you should remap the fuel ecu. I can see that it would be a bodge for a system that was running out of injector capacity and going lean at max...
  7. Saab News
    Legend has it that Mazda used around a dozen or so engineers just to fine tune the exhaust note of the MX-5 (Miata). There’s a lot of things I love about Saabs, but I can’t say that historically speaking, the exhaust note has been one of them. I’m just starting to get turned on to exhaust...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just before Christmas I needed 2 new fronts - 9-5 2.0lpt auto Estate: 215/55x16. Advice on this forum was to be particular about the load rating. My local tyre dealer got hold of a pair of Firestone Firehawk TZ200, ZR rated, 93W load. He said that they had a lot less trouble/returns with...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    We hear from time to time about the reliability of the more recent GM Saab offerings being a bit substandard for a premium car, but have you really had that much of an issue with your 9-5s reliability?
  10. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    I've been looking at 9000 CS Carlsson's of late, and am unsure of the values. What would you think a fair price would be for a car with 125k miles car with good history and no real problems? I'd have thought about £2k - what do you lot think?

    im quite a saab fan, infact around september time i will be purchasing a 2003 9-5 aero wagon and taking it to maptune stage 5 (most likely, yet im still open to suggestions).. however, i cannot help but wonder why saab value depreciates so quickly and dramatically. bmw and benz keep their value...
