It’s a 1995 Saab 900S 2.3 Automatic that I bought on ebay
19 November 2012 for £490
This is the story so far…
29 November 2012: Air Conditioning re-gassed by KwikFit in Shirley, helpful friendly service, and they even suggested coming back in a few weeks to top up the system (free) as it was empty originally.
Refitted grill which wasn’t mounted correctly.
Ordered new single DIN radio mount kit to replace current radio/cassette unit.
Requested price for ‘used’ Indicators and foglights.
30 November 2012: carpet saga continues, still not arrived, promised new ones for next Tuesday (4 Dec). Contacted Bonnet badge seller (in Portugal) about personalised badges.
3 December: Bonnet badge seller has requested revised Viggen drawings, supplied. Bought Parts lists fiche and two brochures on ebay. Still investigating cd player (it’s a nightmare).
4 December: Four new Vredestein Sportrac 5 tyres fitted, tracking adjusted, adjusters were seized. They (Wythall Tyre Services) want me to take it back in a week for re-checking (free of charge). No carpets. Still chasing cd player, looks like a single DIN version will be easiest, currently looking at a Sony… Found two genuine new Saab rear discs on ebay and bought for £25. Ordered a Steering Rack brace kit from Abbott Racing.
5 December: MIJ Performance quote £295 for a new two box stainless steel exhaust system, seriously tempted… Carpet man at lunch and promised to phone back… More info on CD player, you can’t fit a 9-3 system in a 900 (different plugs and software)… V5 log book arrived.
Had to phone carpet man, promised them for Friday 7th without fail.
6 December: Went to Sparkhill to get cd/radio fitted, radio fitted but ‘pocket’ to fill space wouldn’t so reverted to original Radio Cassette. Ebay seller ‘audio-bargains-4-u’ really helpful, wouldn’t accept anything for his time. Not sure what to do now?
