This morning I took my suspect DI cassette and tried it in Mark B's car (thanks for your time Mark, much appreciated) and successfully made his car sound like a bag of spanners. So, I definitely need a new one, but at 185 quid from Reading Saab, the same from Haymell Saab, and 164 quid from Eurocarparts I'm hoping I'll be able to find one cheaper somewhere. Didn't someone on this list have a spare that they'd bought and then didn't need? I'll give it a good home!
cheers.

Ben,

If you're a Saab Owners Club member, you get a generous discount on parts at Haymill- I bought one there recently for £154 incl discount. Also, I believe Eurocarparts offer 10% discount for members of this board- someone else might be able to remember the name of the contact you need to speak to there.

[edit 1 for typo]
[edit 2 for price from Haymill- it was actually £147]

I am off to the Breakers at some point (I think look at my "not starting thread...) there's a specialist Saab breaker - Reasonably local - If you can get me the full! details on which DI is needed. I can ask about the price and get you intouch with them if you think its worth the risk?

Thanks for the offer AG, but unless a second hand one is dirt cheap I'd rather get a new one and be reassured it was going to last. I'm still on the look out for a drivers door mirror though! (Although listed in the German & Swedish catalogue they can't get hold of them, and have had them on order for 2 years!).

I asked anyway as I was there this PM - They said that they may have one but wouldn't know what it looked like.The Saab expert has left!

It would be cheap as they are looking to get rid of all their SAAB parts - There are lots!

Ask them they may have that mirror? There is a 900 Turbo G reg that they will break they said they were lokking for £250 for it as is. It runs and is taxed They started it while I was there seems to missfire a bit but ran well - Number if you want to try 01792 797009 J&P Motors - I think that they are on the web too?
