This morning, I did a search on my PC to find info on wheel fitments on the 1990 900i. So my search was Saab 900i 2 door. As luck would have it, the second image in the list was of my car!!
It was an advert from Car and classic website where the car was being sold. The seller provides some background info to my car which I didn't know about. This adds evidence to the mileage being correct (currently 53000).
I did some detective work using the old MOT information from the DVLA, and discovered that this advert was from 2012. So the car was sold in 2012 for a few hundred, and the next owner then laid it up for a couple of years, hence no MOT's from 2012 up to late 2015. Then, the garage that sold it to me bought it and re-commissioned it, and got an MOT. I bought it in April 2016 for £1500, and have had it since.

The original service history was apparently thrown away by the second owners, because the dealer, to whom they had traded it in, told them it would probably be scrapped!

It is certainly amazing what you can find on the web.

Excellent news.
Yes, the web is one of those things that I don't know how we managed without before we had it (if you follow that !)
Just looking over the original ad, I must say you've got yourself a lovely car there.
It's good to see it finish up with someone who appreciates it.
