  1. Non Saab Advice
    I am looking at buying an E92 320D M sport on an 11/12 plate and my question is what audio systems do they come with? How many speakers? And their locations etc? I ask because I didn't do the research on my 9-3 and it came with a pants system, the most basic one they had which consisted of 2 x...

    The weather was extremely cold tonight so the ground was very icey, me and mates decided to do a few controlled hand brakes (private ground). So i turned off ESP in the Saab and had a bit of fun, next thing out of nowhere, i had 'ABS Malfunction, Stability Control Malfunction, Traction Control...

    Hi. I'm looking around for a 9-3 convertible, and I could really use some information on how to identify what audio system a 9-3 has by looking at the controls/display at the top of the centre console. I listen to a LOT of music in the car so I'd like to make sure I buy something with a decent...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hey Guys, I`ve found 2 ODB-II / CAN-BUS readers recently that say they support SAAB's. I know that standard OBD-II interfaces don't work on 1998 model like I have but these apparently support the CAN-BUS which if memory serves, is what the SAAB has...

    This afternoon, the car told me the the battery had stopped charging. Only two miles from home I kept going. By the time I got home it told me that the traction control had failed and the anti-lock brakes had failed. Then the power steering packed up - for real - it didn't tell me about that...

    Anyone used their product and if so what's the experience? It's a lot cheaper than Hirsch at £285. http://dieseltuner.co.uk/about.html

    Have been doing some of my own research (my 2 cents worth). Firstly, lo beams are 9006 or HB4. Hi beams are 9005 or HB3. Fog/Driving lights(in the front spoiler) are H3. The HID conversion kits I have research suggest replacement of bulbs plus addition of ballast (to get the required 20,000...

    Hi, The back box on my My02 Aero Estate has just developed a small hole on it's 5th birthday/73k miles. Looking at replacements as the back box alone is around £270/280 before fitting. So what are the alternatives? Any suggestions on what are the better systems that don't cost the earth...

    Hi, anyone had any experience with Tarox. They are an Italian performance brake specialist with (seemly) quite a pedigree in performance brake developments which extends to F1. They also produce 6-Pot, 10-Pot and 12Pot systems. Pretty incredible eh!! Anyway here is their web site...

    I have the 13 speaker system with Sat Nav and although its ok at low volumes when you play anything slightly demanding the system can't handle it. Top of the range factory fit sound systems are never that great but the Saab ICE is awful. Even the upgarde Ford Mondeo system knocks it for six...

    When did trionic 5 become 7 and what were the differences Would the same induction unit fit to both intakes?

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well I'm a bit confused. Local main dealer suggests that they don't (or can't?) retro fit the Saab rear park assist system to my '99 LPT (2000MY), but they supply and fir the Cobra Parkmaster system for around £290. Then I spoke to a specialist I normally use who suggested that they fit the...

    As part of my 99T rebuild and modification I'm wanting to fit a water injection system to help keep the tops of the pistons intact as we increase the power levels. I'm reasonably familiar with the Aquamist system, and DIY versions of the same, but I've seen some details of a system that uses a...

    Does anyone have any experience of the Cobra park assist system that dealers retro fit to 9-5s? Do all dealers offer this system for older 9-5s? And would it be a rear bumper only system?
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    The rear section of my exhaust is blowing and needs replacing. However, when I bought the car it had on one of the oval sports exhausts. The cost of replacing this part is £300 compared to £120 for a standard piece. OK what is the diference - does it give more BHP? Alternatively, has anyone...
