It's not just advice and knowledge though, Mr. Blue, but also physical help from yourself and others. I won't try to list all those who have helped me with work on my beloved Omega for fear of leaving someone off due to my failing, ageing memory - but you know who you are!  :y

Groupon had a good offer a few months ago whereby I went to ATS Euromaster for a diagnosis and re-gas, on the understanding that if they could not re-gas the system, I would get my money back. They found a leak and I got my money back.
Check with Groupon as they could well be offering the same deal, especially as we are now entering the warmer weather.

Also, let us remind them that it's OUR money they are spending, not theirs.

Early 2.3 models suffer with pick up pipe getting blocked.

The early 9-3 convertibles used to break the firewall free from the car due to the fact the steering rack is mounted on the firewall.

Personally if I was picking an engine, I'd prefer the 2.0L turbo. These engines are storming if they are looked after. The standard internals will take about 450BHP and the ECU is a trionic which can be unlocked. If you are into making things faster.

There is a lot of parts cross over between Vauxhall and Saab. My FiL's 9-3 has Vectra B GSI front brake caliper brackets, standard calipers, Astra GSI 308mm discs and pads. It's always worth looking to see if there is a Vauxhall part that will work, it's nearly always cheaper.

Another thing, by default, the tyre sizes are a bit oddball. EG 215/55/16 or 225/45/17. Which is fine apart from those tyre sizes are pricey. narrow the tread a bit and they are suddenly a load cheaper, 205/55/16 & 215/45/17. Obviously this should be mentioned to insurance people  ::)

That Wheeler Dealer programme that I mentioned earlier had a cure for the firewall issue, if it applies to whatever Saab you are looking at - or maybe it will have already been implemented, if you are lucky.

WheelerDealers did a Saab a while back. Look it up on YouTube, if you can stand the odious Fatty Brewer!

I got my set from ATP about 2 years ago, fitted by Saint Serek, and still fine. I confirm the price at 70 delivered.
