Can anyone point me in the direction for a whole servicing kit for this car.
e.g. oil, fuel and air filters.

Cheers :D

Oil filter from any Orio dealer, fuel filter and air filter off eBay.

Why would you buy the oil filter (or anything else ;) ) from an Orio dealer? They're generic filters.

Cheers guys.
Seeing as they are Fram filters i can easily go to J.E. Clarkes (local motor shop) as they stock them on the shelf!

Another quick one!

I'm assuming 20W-50 mineral oil is suitable?

Because they're cheap as chips and have the correct non-return valve so they don't empty when the engine is turned off.

You'd be surprised how cost effective a lot of "genuine" parts are these days.

Yep, 20/50 is fine, I use GTX though which I think is 15/50.

I always use Mann W916/1 oil filters for V4s, they also have a non-return valve and they're nice and big.

How much do you pay for the Mann filters, Melle? Looks like they retail for around £7.50 each?

Genuine Saab from Saabits - £2.99 each. Why would you NOT buy from an Orio dealer? :wink: :mrgreen:

Fair enough, just 60% more than you need to :grin:

Your math is a bit off. ;) Apart from that, I use a different type of filter which I think is worth paying a bit more for.
