    Hi everybody: I'm David, in Peterborough, UK I've just come back to Saabs (by buying a '93 black T16S convertible as a summer toy for nostalgia's sake) after a long gap. Started with an '85 saloon, then an '89 9000 hatch, an '87 saloon, a '91 900 T16S (much missed) an NG900 turbo hatch...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    For those who read Saab Central as well, they will already have read this information. Sorry, move on to the next thread. For those who haven't well, if it helps one person, then it'll have been worth it. Saab supplied a fair number of 9000's to the police. The specification of these...

  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I am picking up my Saab 9000 CS turbo sometime next week. Never even thought of getting one of these but found the Luxury was to good to miss out on. So what can I do to it to improve performance,handling etc. And I love touring car looks, so is there anything I can do to get that sort...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Help! Arrghh. Please bear with me.. I don't know if all of this is related however : The 9000 was running great boosting to 1.2bar @3000rpm.. trailing to 0.9bar @ 5000 rpm. It's boost was stable and only a whistling noise along with the growl of the engine could be heard. When I came of the...

    Can someone give me 3 reasons why these machines are even worth my time. In my mind they depriciate rapidly , break easily, and cost tons to fix. Is there any pluses to that?
  10. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    I was filling up at a petrol station yesterday, somewhere just off the A30 in Devon, when about a dozen Saabs pulled in behind me. Mainly C900s, with some newer stuff too. Turned out to be a Saab Central ( ) bunch, on their way back from a meet. There was a few cheeky comments about the...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I've just come back from a 3 and a bit week holiday in the USA. Got back to the K Reg 2.3T at Heathrow. Turned on the ignition, let it do the checks, cranked the engine and it fired on the second crank - all 4 cylinders, smooth as silk.. just a bit of a graunch from the brakes from rust. Got...

  14. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Having just returned from a trip to the US where I annoyed my girlfriend by pointing out every Saab of interest we passed I thought I would share my observations. San Francisco. Lots of Saabs. Many 9-3s, a few 9-5s a fair number of 900s, many of which were quite old with interesting alloys and...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I've just bought a 1991 9000 2.3 Turbo that was originally imported from Hong Kong. Does anuone know what the differences in spec. are? It has leather trim with electric memory seats, walnut dash, gear knob and door cappings, ACC, ABS, and glass sunroof. It lacks a rear wash-wipe and headlamp...
  16. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Anyone else who spends their hours rumaging around scrap yards noticed a load of Saabs there recently? When I had my first Saab about 5 or 6 years ago it seemed you could only get parts from specialist suppliers, but now it's a piece of cake, and cheap as chips.

  18. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    ....traffic light Grand Prix? Tell it to the Audi TT Quattro driver on the Wolves ring road yesterday. He couldn't keep up bless him. What's the power in one of those things? Didn't expect to take him to be honest but it would be rude not to try...We were both hammering it but I just managed to...

  20. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Yesterday, I woke up to everything covered in a layer of ice. Managed to move my car from where I park on weekends to the lot I have a permit for, and barely avoided sliding off the road. Gotta love ABS..... Today, literally half of the cars I've seen successfully braving the roads were...
