This is a great car, but it needs a new clutch and that's not economically viable for me.

Good bits:

- 119,000 Miles - Full Service History, A fair amount of receipts & old MOTs. battery also recent.
- NO RUST on the bodywork
- All electrics work, has fully working 6CD changer
- The car drives very well, has never let me down. No smoke, starts perfectly, doesn't use oil or water.
- Interior is pretty faultless, you won't find better seats in a 9000 (they look new)
- Manual gearbox

(in the past 12 months, over £900 spent, all work at Saab specialists)

- New lambda sensor & wire fitted
- New heater stepper motor (so the climate control works)
- Four new Pirelli rear tyres
- Had a full service & check over from a Saab specialist in Nov 2015
- Fitted A1 condition elec memory seats in the front & A1 condition rear seats
- New windscreen wipers front & rear

Bad bits:

- It needs a new clutch. It currently drives without slipping and my Saab specialist thinks it'd be good for another 500 miles.
- The CEL light is on. It's been this way for my entire ownership (if you search under my username you'll see posts trying to get to the bottom of it from a year ago). It reports faulty oxygen sensor but the new one gives a perfect reading, so it's probably a wiring issue. I wasn't going to bother paying to have it fixed as the car ran perfectly and until the clutch went I wasn't planning on selling!

So either you can fit a new clutch and you will have a very good condition 9000, or you can strip it of the wheels, tyres, wings (rust free) and a few other parts and turn a tidy profit. I'd do the latter but I live in central London and don't have the space.

Here's a pic of the car I took this morning. I'll post a picture of the interior (the seats are A1 condition) and other shots later.
