Hello
I am thinking of buying a 9000 as a replacement for the various German heaps I have owned. I can only spend up to £4k, but it seems that I can get a reasonable car for that. Is this a correct assumption? The local specialist (Offord Motors in Cambs.) have a CDE2.3t with 120k and a CDS2.3t with 100k within my price range. The cars seem genuine enough, but what should I look out for? Does anyone know what Offord are like as dealers, and are there any others in the area?
Any guidance appreciated!
Thanks

I don't know about Offord, but the SAAB Specialist I use is Howe Engineering, in Hare Street, near Buntingford. They have good expertise and experience, they've cured any problems I've had, they are not prohibitively expensive (although that's a subjective judgement) and they always have some cars for sale inb a wide variety of price ranges. Give them a call on 01763 289521 - best to speak with Steve who handles most of the sales side of things.

I use a small specialist called Saabmaster near the Science Park in Cambridge.... Paul the owner is Ex-Buckingham & Stanley.. Still Saab through and through... Labour about £25/hr... Phone 01223420055...

Although he might be planning to retire soon on the proceeds of continually repairing my Carlsson!!

Gassy... do Howe offer SOC discounts??

Quinton,
I've seen quite a few reccomendations regarding Offord in the letters pages of the SOC magezine, but I have no personal experience of them. 4K...should be into reasonable CD or CDE territory, as you've quoted, 'booted' CD's seem to be worth less than hatchback CS versions for some reason.
