    I know there’s a lot of people out there with Saab hatchbacks. A lot of readers here own the more recent sport sedans or sportcombis, but there’s a lot of hatch owners - past and present - here as well. I’m proud to say I’ve got three Saab hatches in the driveway at the moment, even if only...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have been loving my Aero (MY03) in the recent warm weather, rarely has the ESP had to kick in to reign in the horses. I am amazed at how such a big car can be chucked around. My friend has just bought a Clio 172 Sport and I was expecting a huge leap in grip when driving his, but no where near...

    Having just spent a very pleasant day with a great bunch of Saabfiends whilst watching someone rev up cars until the rev limiter cut in (Phew!) I thought I would try and find some stuff that would help me understand the results that were generated. Below there are a number of links from a site...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Recently been aware of my 9-5 estate acting strangely when going over a bump in the road or a man hole cover. This happens if ONLY the rear passenger (obviously preceeded by the passenger front wheel) wheel goes over a depression in the road or a man hole cover - the car suddenly lurches to the...

    Just a bit of fun really... What's been your favourite road to drive, why, when and in what car? For me it's a fight between: Horseshoe Pass in my old 90bhp 96V4 - this was where I learned to drive and the importance of maintaining momentum - especially as using the freewheel & cheap pads...

    Hi, I,m taking a trip over to Bergen next month and intend driving up to trondheim then across to Sundsvall in Sweden. I intended using my 9-3 Hirsch Saab but I,m just wondering if the low suspension will be OK for the roads over there. I'm mainly thinking of ferry ramps when crossing numerous...

    I don't believe it. I was coming home from work yesterday and encountered some of the most appalling on road driving ability/consideration. As I drove out of work, some 4rse in an F reg BMW 5 series came haring around the roundabout sliding the back end out, and driving only about 3 foot from...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Guys, I am going to france in a few weeks in the 9-5 and have realised i need to covert the headlights for 'continential use'. As my car has bi-xenon's i have read that normal stick on converters will not work and there is some sort if dealer adjustment required Has anyone got any...

    Inspired by yet another Bank Holiday Monday, and the usual grid lock of holiday makers every Saturday morning around the M4/M5 junction, and the run down to Junction 20 Portishead, and musing that a for significant number, this will be the longest (or only) journey of the year, what's the...

  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Anybody else has experienced a very pronounced drifting to one side on straight, perfectly flat surfaces. I had it since day one and thought that it was down to the assymetrical Michelin tyres but now after having put on Dunlops the problem remains. Allignment is OK. If I let the steering wheel...

    anyone know if there are any rolling roads close to Leeds or Manchester Cheers

    Well maybe I'm just provoking thought or debate perhaps even rambling but, I would really like to know what the answer is. I'm sure that a concerned collective of thinkers (is that we? ) could come up with something better than we have or what is proposed. For example (to start with), I see...

    Now that I've done my tweaking, fettling and tuning (replaced ECU and fitted exhaust!) I'd like to get my beast on a rolling road... soi can add some genuine numbers to my name! Anyone fancy meeting up for a rolling road session, or recommend a good friendly but 'cost effective' rolling...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    To start the performance ball rolling. At the recent 9000 meet in Tamworth there was talk of arranging a rolling road day, to see if a group of 9000 owners could get a discount if we took part as a group. This seems like a good idea, so if any of those present know of such a place we should...
