Hi, I have just upgraded my wheels on a saab 93 turbo to 17", tyre size 215/45zr17.I am really surprised on the amount of road noise I can hear in the car, is this normal? Secondly, is there any long term problems with upgrading to 17"? Thirdly, does anybody know what the tyre pressure should...
Just back from a great day out, some figures from the rolling road day are,(figures approx)

After doing the head gasket and lots of other engine bits and pieces on my Aero I did the brakes this weekend as the pedal was a little soft and braking was not very good.
Fitted new brembo discs all round, textar rear pads and Pagid front pads (from those nice Elkparts people - usual very...
Managed to damage the c900 last night- offside front wheel went into a hole in the road - never heard a louder crash/bang noise in my life from inside a car .
I can now hear something rattling when i go over smaller bumps, and it seems suspension related.
Steering feels ok but i...
I was having trouble with my exhaust banging under the boot, so I pulled into National and asked if I could borrow their ramp for 5 minutes to take a look. All the staff there loved the car and seemed more than happy to help. It transpired that the manager (Ashok) had owned several T16S models...

Does anybody know where I can get a copy of road test figures for 9-5 Aero. I cant find any independent tests such as Autocar or Top Gear mags.
I`d like to know performance figures , mph per 1000 rpm in the gears etc
Sat 21st 2004 saw possibly the biggest concentration of Saabs in a single place driving to a single location.. Kleinejan's workshop for a rolling road session meet.
900 Turbos both 8v and 16v, NG900s in 2.3 NA and 2.0Turbo, 9000s in 2.3NA and 2.3 Turbo, 9-3s including TiDs and 'verts, 9-5s...
this might sound like a frail attempt at comedy, but do saab recommend any snow / grippy / M&S tyres for the 9000?
i'm quite impressed with how the auto 9000 copes with muddy tracks and fields, just wondered if anyone in the sticks used a winter/mud set of tyres/wheels.......
Here's the story. Saab 9000CD 1992 185K miles, excellent history. In the last 2 weeks I have put on a new drive belt,installed a new regulator in the alternator,put new brushes in the starter motor etc etc. Anyway at idle it's smoking. Not on the move and not when cold. Only at operating...
Scaero is organising Saabscene's second visit to Dave Walker's Emerald rolling road in Norfolk.

Anyone got one of these in there Saabs:
Road Angel , My Mate has one in his Impreza WRX RA and he reckons its saved him loads of times.. It seems expensive, but then again, what price can you put on your license gaining points!

Thanks to Aeroboy Andy (hope you are viewing) I have a bit more information on the availability of Aero shox and some lingering questions about Saab's parts service.
Andy tells me that the part nos. for Aero shox were 4646758 (front) and 4647095...
Two questions that may elementary but any way;
What is the big deal with the 60k or 66k service that I have read about. I questioned my service guy at the main dealer where I bought my 99 9-5 2.0 and he said there was nothing special and that it should not cost any more that a full service...
Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
I'm going to buy a Road Angel GPS/Laser speed trap detector tomorrow, but before I do I just wondered if anybody uses one. Is it worth the £399?
Does the 9-3 have a heat reflecting windscreen? Apparently this can interfere with the signal.
It has been suggested the was have a East Anglian Rolling Road meet sometime Late August or September.
This poll is to judge when it should be, which day of the weekend, if we should combine it with a General East Anglian meet, and an idea of numbers.
The Rolling Road is at Emerald Engineering...
