Lorry Drivers Please Service Your Vehicles!
What's so hard with the maintenance of these vehicles? I'm starting to get sick and tired of finding the reason I've been stuck in traffic for an hour is due to a broken down lorry. It's all I every hear on the traffic report."Delays due to a broken down lorry". T Raymond ... 13 Aug 2010 19:06
Wish me luck
Firstly because I have bought a French hot hatch (of sorts) - a Citroen Xsara VTS. Quite pokey, handles nicely and in a fetching shade of yellow. Secondly because tomorrow I leave for a trip in the TVR to find some nice driving roads round our beloved country. Plan is to hop into Wales along the motorways to... 12 Aug 2010 18:08
Had a play on way back from RAF Woodvale classic show.
Lane 1 packed with shopping trolley hatches and people carriers, lane 2 clear, Me in the Saab, Guards red air cooled 911 turbo, and a V-Spec R34 GT-r. Using 2 and where there was one 3rd lane to full value. The sound of 3 turbo cars spooling up and taking turns to slipstream then blast past is awesome. And yes ... 8 Aug 2010 16:46
Who are the K-jet parts gurus these day?
I'm going to give the Saab a service shortly, and that involves removing the fuel distributor head in one unit to do the air filter. I know that one of the 21 year fuel lines will crack/break from being flexed so figure I might as well get some new lines/banjo bolts/crush washers ready. I know VAG, Porsche ... 6 Aug 2010 12:43
Quiet in here
No car news from me but I just bought a VFR800 SteveH's bike of choice for a long time. He was actually right about something. I like it. Still waiting for it to burst into flames or rust like an Alfa. -- Fraser ... 7 Aug 2010 04:00

Woohoo the Saab is getting better.
New leads got rid of the arcing, refitting a vac hose sorted the idle/boost gauge. Made a battery heat shield out of an old baking tray and some silicon trivets (2 layers) that are rated at 400f so should help it not kill the battery on a long run. Swapped the old Sony radio cassette for the Lidl bluetoot... 25 Jul 2010 14:05
Looks like the old F900 is available again
http://www.uksaabs.co.uk/UKS/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=61851 And thanks to a little ropey condition (but recently MOT'd), a bargain. Anybody want 235bhp for �1300.

Good idea? I need to have a sensible car on standby as having just the SD1 and Chim is getting silly. I like the look of it - 143bhp, RWD and decent economy. Plus the one I'm looking at has had a few suspension goodies fitted so should handle ok. Opinions...? Ta -- Carl --- news://freenews.ne... 13 Jul 2010 17:35
