Saab 9-3 HOT Aero Coupe
2001 Y
Cosmic Blue
148k miles
MOT June '17

I'm sort of testing the water here to see if there's any interest in my Aero.

I'll start with the not so good to get it out the way, under load, there's a vibration coming from somewhere up front and a grinding noise at steady speed. I've spent plenty time and money replacing bits and am not really prepared to spend any more. It could be something as simple as a wheel bearing or maybe a combination of faults?! Either way, as it's my daily drive, I could be doing without it being a project. Although, just to add, I've been using it every day and adding loads of miles in it's current state!
Other things to mention are the bubbly rear arches and faulty engine coolant sensor showing a CEL
So on to the good.....
Earlier this year, I spent a good amount of money on new parts, of the top of my head, genuine Viggen clutch/slave cylinder, Eibach springs, Sachs shocks, various bushes, new DI, power steering hose, oil cooler hoses and much more. IIRC I spent close to £1500.
In my ownership I've added 20k, changed the oil every 5k and carried out a service every after 10k. It's standard apart from the springs and an Abbott rack clamp and it's engine pulls very well.
As can be seen from the pictures, the car still looks quite nice when cleaned up and with some time and effort it'd make a really nice car.

I've set the price at £750 but would listen to reasonable offers otherwise it'll just sit in the garage until I decide to do something with it!
