    Hi all, please excuse me if this is the wrong place to post this. I'm new here. I'm looking at purchasing a 9-3 2.8 V6 manual. The vehicle is at auction and currently sits at £2600. It has "some" service history 120k miles BigNav and I feel that it might be a little bit unloved. I was...
  2. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I found a 1997 900 2.0 Turbo on ebay. It looks in fair Condition but has a blown head gasket. I've done head gaskets on a few domestics and Japanese cars.

  7. 9-5 Workshop
    Okay so let me first start off by saying this is my first post on the forums. I am 16 looking to purchase my first car. I found a very well maintained 2003 9-5 Linear Sedan.
