Car Model: 9-5 Aero HOT
***** PROVISIONALLY SOLD, awaiting collection. ******
Thank you all for your interest.

The good bits:
MOT until March 2019
Four recent new tyres
Recently updated breather hose kit (Neo Brothers)
110k miles with some service history
Ice-cold air conditioning
Cream electric leather interior in good condition

The bad bits:
Front end knocking over bumps due to worn bushes. Car comes with new balljoints, track rod ends, ARB links, subframe bushes x6 and engine mounts.
Cracked windscreen, outside of drivers vision so should still pass an MOT.
Boost Leak. It still drives, but obviously not very quickly and is throwing code P1105.
Slight oil leak from the rubber pipe linking the turbo to the block, replacement metal item supplied with car.
Slightly weak starter motor, however a replacement is supplied with the car and I think the problem could be due it trying to move the whole engine on its worn bushes/mounts.

I'll be very sad to see this go, but I'm Selling because, annoyingly, None of the garages (or Saab specialists) in my area want to fix it!
I'd normally do it myself, but I've already got one car restoration project on the go, hence haven't the time.
I need the space for another car as I don't want to ruin my motorbike by commuting on it during the winter.

V5 present and in my name.
An exceptionally cheap way to 250bhp for someone after a relatively straightforward winter project.
I'll be cancelling the tax on friday, so you could test drive it before then if you want.
I'm fairly firm on the price, as I've already sunk money into the parts. If it doesn't sell, I'll park it under a sheet at my mates farm until spring when I'll fix it up properly myself :D
Car is located in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Cash on collection only please.

Any questions please give me a bell on 07526 173761
Many thanks, David
