  1. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Any recommendations for roof bars? Cost more of an issue than appearance. They won't be used often. Thanks!
  2. Saab Recommendations
    My 2004 9-5 sedan, at 108,000 miles. is starting to cost more in repairs than it is worth, and I'm beginning to look for a replacement. But it needs new rear shocks right now. Can anyone suggest inexpensive shocks that won't screw up the handling and ride? I'm more ocncerned with shoirt-term...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I currently have an ODBII reader for my car which has been useful on a few occasions with generic errors and resetting them. I was wondering if anyone can recommend a decent OPCOM reader as I like to be able to interrogate the fault codes a little further (only generic faults show up on...
  4. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hello Folks, I'm looking for some advice on what the best suspension parts are to buy for my C900. It's a 1992 900 Aero S LPT with FPT conversion. I'm thinking Bilstein B4 shocks as i'm quite happy with the set I've put on my 9-3 to replace the tired OEM ones. But i'm not sure what springs to...
  5. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    The main beam on my 2004 9-3 Aero Conv is like a searchlight but the dip beam is as much use as a tea light in a hurricane. Short of going for a full upgrade to HiD can anyone recommend a way of improving the dip beam performance. Headlights themselves are perfect with no damage to the...

  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Good day! I recently bought my first Saab, a 2007 9-5. My question is about tools. I have a full set of 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2" drive, standard and metric. I have no Torq sockets or bits at all. I know I'll need a set of both. What sizes will cover most DIY work? For external Torx is a socket set up...

  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all I've got the lowly 1.8t Vector Sport (2008 '58) at the moment, but I bought it cheaply knowing I could remap up to around 200hp and wouldn't get hammered for tax like with an Aero (sensible man eh?) So, now the top priority job is complete (Mki9000) it's time to get the power upped...

    Hi All. I'm looking to buy a set of after market HID's. I know that I want 55w/6000k. The question is, can anyone suggest a good kit? I have been told by various people that VVME do a good kit. Do I need to be looking for any type of ballast. e.g. Digital, Canbus, slim? Any thoughts welcome.

    I'm really picky where I take my car, sometimes the garages you go to are awful, sometimes they are great. I've always had the luxury of shopping around a bit as my work takes me around the country. So, I'll just post up who I rate as excellent, I wont bother with the crap as I'm bound to get...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My aero is nearing 107k and the suspension is starting to get particularly worn and showing signs of its age. I have my eye on a set of maptun roadholding coilovers, springs and drop links: Are there any better alternatives...
