Slightly OT:
I had to change the battery on my c900 as it was flat a few weeks ago. The car had been unused for almost 5 weeks so there´s a good chance there´s nothing wrong with the battery. It´s originally from my 9-3 convertible. I put it into the 900 when the convertible went into hiding for the winter and it was working perfectly then.
I´d hate to throw it away since it´s probably fully functional for some time longer. It´s a 58Ah "SAAB original" and fits at least 900/9-3 and C900s.
If anybody wants it and buys me a pint or so it can come on the trip and get a new home :)

I wouldn't mind that battery, Patrik. Mine is a little over-sized (and 68Ah) and butts up right against the turbo elbow. I can certainly give it a go, charging it up.

Yay! Good work tubbo ... are you joining the convoy? I think the easiest for you is to trolley up the M1, A1 and meet us at the St James Retail Park meeting place.

:cry: :cry: well thats put a big dent in the Sheffield Massive :lol: just as the weather forecast is improving as well (Sunny intervals now :D ) Fingers crossed for a top down day. Can't wait to see the tall guys, Orca and Valentine getting buffetted in the back of Debbos rag top, as they stoically deny any discomfort :wink:

Ok then, who is bringing what?!

I'm torn between the fuel economy of my 9-3 or the boostacular fun of the 9K Aero, decision decisions! :? :lol:

First priority, bring yourself and Mim. :)

As the Met Office has just positioned a big yellow sun over Whitby for tomorrow, it will be a top down C900 day for us.
Orca and crew are I believe coming in their newly aquired C900 rag top, Tubbo has a rag top in his extensive Saab stable and there is an outside chance of a C900 rag top coming over from Lancashire.
So Scotty open air motoring; choose which of your cars to take the angle grinder to :lol:
To be selfish I'd rather have a gander at your 9K than the 93 :wink:

Weather Stations!

Slick, there is one for Leeds *(on my office in Roundhay) and there is one for Whitby too! that means you can get at the moment accurate weather (these things cost thousands of £££)

Its very cool!

I just wish our c900 ragtop was in a fit state. I've never seen a car with so many alarm systems! Plus the 9-3 needs tidying up as someone has given my front bumper a new look :?

Could that be Jack by any chance? :wink:

Double post from above so here is another....

I also wish the 99T had an exhaust that wasn't blown and was MOT otherwise that'd have been first choice.
I'm glad lots of C900 are going! 8)
