    Sorry to bring up this subject again, but I need some advice on tyre choice. I've tried the search facility but haven't really found a answer. I bought a 2008 Vector Sport Estate this week, love the car but I'm disappointed with the loud noise from the tyres. Tyres are Wanli, and almost new by...

    First, apologies for posting a variant on the same-old ... I've just acquired a rather nice SAAB 9-3 Aero and want to find a reliable independent and LPG converter. I'm based in Wilts next door to the A303 and have no problem getting over to Alresford to Paul Merry. The recommendations on...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, As forums are often the place we come to air problems and discuss bad experiences, I thought I'd reverse the tradition and take the time to give credit to a Saab specialist I've found. Having just searched the forums their name doesn't crop up so I thought I'd give them a recommendation...

    The SRS light on my 97 900SE has been stuck on ever since i stupidly took the fuse out by accident. Apparently it can only be extinguished by clearing the code. The car's only worth £700 so I don't want to take it to a dealer -- anybody know a reasonably-priced indy in south-east london area...

  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi The drivers seat in my car here in Sweden is getting worn and the seat heat does not work anymore. I have been on the hunt for a replacement in better shape but it is pretty hard to find. Then I figured that it may be easier to get one from the UK as the passenger seat wears much later. Can...

    Hi, Me again with this 900 2.3 non turbo auto I've just brought. What engine oil shall I stick in it? Semi synth? Synth? And what viscosity. I've got no idea. Its done 98,000 miles.

    Recently bought an o5 9-3 and it needs a service. Done 36k, last service was at 24k. I though the service intervals were longer. Can anybody recommend a good independent specialist in the St Albans or Watford area please.

    Hi guys Had my rear brake pads done on Sat morning on my MY03 Aero estate. I ordered a genuine set from Neo Bros for smiggen over £34 and as I do not have brains or time to fit them myself I took them to a guy who RussJ recommended in King St Norwich called City Tyres and Exhausts. Shabby...

    I recently used www.parcel2go.com to send an Aero wheel to Paul @ Kippen, near sunny Stirling. I had thought it would be expensive, but they charged only £7.89 for an 11kg box measuring 50 x 45 x 35 cm. Even more amazing, the "48 - 72 hour" economy service that I chose collected the parcel...
