  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I finallly got around to adding a second RARB (now 2 x 15mm) a few days ago, what a difference ! Best £40 I've spent in some time, £20 for bar and £20 for wire brush wheel, rust inhibitor, hammerite (they look quite nice in silver), spacer material plus new screws & washers. If anybody needs...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    9 5 Aero Estate versus 9 5 TiD with 175 Hirsch conversion comparison Over the past 4 years I have had one 2.2 TD, two TiD Vector Sports and a couple of Aero Estates..all have been new “leased” vehicles. I now have an 58 Aero Estate which replaced my 08 model I had just had the opportunity to...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just wondering if anyone had put 205 55 16 tyres on their 9-3 rather than the 205 50 16 tyres that are standard. The reason I ask is that the higher profile tyres are much cheaper and there is a better choice. The profile difference is only 5% of the width, so ay speedo inaccuracy is not going...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    In the good old days, speedos would read from somewhere in the transmission, so that one turn of the final drive equals so-many mph, no matter what wheels and tyres the car was wearing. I'm aware, though, that some modern cars are able to interpret the speed from the rate at which the surface...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, My 1994 9000 won't start. I can get the fuel pump to run using a spare battery. I can get voltage to the unplugged fuel pump connector by turning the key to "Start". I don't know how to test for spark since I have DI and the coils are all built into the spark plug wire cartridge. (my...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, It's probably a little pedantic on my behalf but here goes. My DTE on the SID reads 25 miles left. The petrol gauge show I have about one third left in the tank which should be about 90 miles, which should I believe? Julian
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I hit a pheasant at .. well, speed anyway. Shattered my indicator glass and seems to have done something nasty to my headlight, but fortunately the metalwork has escaped (apart from some scratches from the broken glass but I think they will T-cut out). My question is about the headlight - the...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Does anyone know if the 2006 model 9-3 & 9-5 will still be swedish, or is this yet another marque I will have to place on my ignore list? <font color="brown"> </font>
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    As there is a significant difference in price between the two (at least around here) I was wondering if there is really any difference between the two cars?
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Is it true that the 9-5 aero auto 5 speed is fractionaly slower at 0-60 than the manual version of the aero and would you notice the difference. cheers kimosaabi
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I know it has been discussed here in a variety of contaexts but this now bothers me: leather or velour. The reason for the question is I own a 9K with standard grey velour seats. After 333000 km's the seats look okay if not great. But recently I have been offered a leather set. In grey leather...

    I had my GM 900 MY94 2.3 150 HP for a few weeks now and it has its small problems BUT i really feel its much more stable in sharp conering than I can remeber my 93 FPT did??? BUT it does also suddenly loose its grip, like its sliding sideways in a 25 degree angle over the front wheels, in a...

    Re: Autos versus Manuals. In my opinion Give it a go. I've driven a few times with it now. And it just feels right. I didn't have a chance to try it out at full go but in city use, It feels ok.
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi! Anybody has experience with ITG filters? Do they give better performance than JR for that additional money paid? JR claims that their air filters last the lifetime of the car, how abt ITG?? ITG claims a 2bhp increase after installation, does JR give a power increase as well?? Thanks for your...

    While wittering about the new Sport wagon concepty thingy, I have a flash of inspiration for a new thread, so here goes.... Is it just me, or are car makers getting obsessed with active safety, and forgetting or ignoring passive safety? Think of the change in cars over the last few years -...
