Ive only had the car, 2005 petrol, a few months and as I am in London I don't get to accelerate hard that often

Accelerating in 1st is clumsy, if you know what I mean, jerky etc, as soon as I get to 2nd the car starts to pull properly

If I try a boy racer start in 1st, the engine revs go up OK but the car is not moving as quick as the engine revs would suggest

No I don't think its the clutch, I have no sense of it ever slipping and I have done the handbrake test and the car stalled as per it should.

Is the the traction control causing this 'lag'?

You coukd have an air leak ,fouled plugs coil pack .
Has this been going on a while ?
If you have opcom then it may well be worth doing some live data readings to see if fuel trims are following each other .
Or fuel pressure desired and atchual are as they should be

Yes perhaps, I have found a proper SAAB mechanic local who is going to look over the car in a week. I'm fairly handy with cars, I have had 3 SAABs I've maintained - a 9000 and a 95 and now the 93, plus I still have a 1966 Sunbeam, but this is a complicated beast to deal with.

The mechanic has suggested I buy a brand new throttle body, which I have now done. I could put it on myself, but I might as well let him do it as he has proper tek 2.

Almost £200 for the TB from Neo, but I think on a 15 year old car it can do no harm and may do a lot of good!
