    I crossed paths with a gentleman in China of all places who spent some time as a stylist at Saab back in the day. We were comparing Saab stories when I brought up the amount of torque steer in my 2002 Viggen coupe. He pointed me to the write up about it below. My question is, any one have an...

    Greetings one and all, My 2000 Viggen convertible has come out of retirement due to the eldest daughter passing her driving test, and surprise, surprise, it now needs a new alloy wheel courtesy of taking evasive action from a rather large lorry. So do any of the learned members of this forum...

    With thanks to RJ, here’s an inside look at what happens when a Saab 9-3 Viggen gets a little overcooked. This Viggen belongs to a friend of his, and has been shown here previously. <blockquote>It turns out piston #4 got so hot it overheated and fractured (pieces actually broken off). The...

    One of the most contentious decisions a Viggen owner will face is what to do about the wheels. On one hand the original Viggen wheels look absolutely fantastic. They’re finished in a black-chrome type finish and given that they’re bespoke to the Viggen, there really is something special about...

    Did you know that back in 1999, Saab intended for the Viggen name to be a sub-brand within the Saab 9-3 portfolio? If things had worked out the way they planned, we’d all be drooling over the new 9-3 Viggen with XWD instead of the model now called the Turbo-X. It’s likely there’d be no...

    Up until now, the only printed history of the Viggen I’d seen was at Abbott Racing. It’s a great read and I’d say it’s still the best history of the Viggen out there, but it is from an Abbott perspective to some degree. Today I came across some of the original press material for the Viggen...

    If the website’s been quiet this morning, it’s because I’ve been writing what I hope is my final response to material relied upon my insurance company in their submission to the ombudsman deciding the matter. I can’t reveal any details of the submission, but suffice to say I’m feeling quietly...

    You may remember a post recently where you were asked to help Richo decide - Saab or Subaru. His 1999 Viggen was experiencing some problems and somewhat sick at the prospect of replacing an entire engine, he was contemplating change. I don’t want to be too presumptuous here, but recent...

    1. The name means “Thunderbolt”, which is pretty much the coolest name there is for a performance variant of a car, especially from Sweden with all the Nordic mythology and everything else. 2. It’ll sound like snobbery, but the exclusivity that comes with the Viggen badge when it’s...

    Continuing the weekend’s Viggen love-fest….. If you own or otherwise love the Saab 9-3 Viggen then you’re going to find at least the first part of this review difficult. You may even want to throw something at the screen. Hang in there. It gets better. Much better, in fact. The...

    Following on from the Viggen press release I published a few days ago and in the spirit of Viggen love, here’s an old review of the car. It originally appeared on Top Gear’s website and appears to have been written by Captain Slow, though his name only appears in the article and not in the...

    I posted an article a few days ago on a Saab 9-3 Viggen for sale in the UK. Some questions on that article in comments got me doing some Viggen research, and in the midst of all that I fell in love with the car all over again. For those who are new to this site, I have a Viggen, which I...

    When I saw the heading “Viggen for sale” in my inbox this morning, my interest wasn’t that high. Viggens come up for sale now and then, but I’m not in the market for purchasing one and not in the habit of posting about cars for sale unless they’re quite significant or rare. Then I saw who it...

    I posted earlier today on Richo’s question with regard to picking up a Saab vs a Subaru. Richo’s helped me out here on the website on multiple occasions, most notably with the Aero-X debut in Sydney and the BioPower/Diesel launch in Brisbane. Many of you would know that Richo has a 3-door...

    It’s time for you another entry in the Saab Pride of Ownership Competition, kindly sponsored by the good gents at Elkparts. As you might guess from the title, what we have here is a Saab 9-3 Viggen that’s making me cry with it’s sheer beauty. Oh, how I’m missing mine when I see images like...

    Saab Automobile USA has just provided a great comparison chart between the 1999-2002 Saab 9-3 Viggen as well as the 2008 Saab 9-3 Turbo-X. I think this clarification really shows just how unique each of these high performance models are in comparison to one another. I realize that the Saab...

    Thinking of using forged pistons in my rebuild, so if im purchasing new pistons, are there any oversized ones available for a B235R ? i know i can get the bores bored out at a reasonable cost, so seems silly if i can get oversized pistons in the process. whats the std size of viggen piston ...

    Im sure ive read somewhere 9000 Aero Camshafts are a good upgrade (B234R) ? If not are there any off Aftermarket camshafts ? Kent Cams ? Piper Cams ?
