Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.


Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Has anyone living in or around Oxford used Alladin Motors for there Saab?
I've been told by a neighbour they are a Saab specialist/semi-specialist but not seen anything on there website to suggest it.
Alternatively is there a garage in or around Oxford that anyone has used specifically for a B284 engine?
I'm in need of a trans fluid change and want it done by someone who knows Saabs. I've checked the Saab specialist register but nothing very close to Oxford apart from the garage in the centre of Oxford (can't remember the name) but wasn't very impressed with a previous chat and there attitude.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

If you're thinking of Belsyre Garage on Woodstock Rd as the one in centre then I would say they're pretty good — old school but fairly high prices. It always felt very personal service from the two old brothers running the place when you went there, and I know they had cars coming over from all over which is good sign.

I only stopped using them when I started doing all the work on my car, prompted by having to replace broken balance guide which they diagnosed, but quoted about £1400 to fix (cost me about £100 for balance chain kit and my time).

Yes you are correct, it is called Belsyre Garage I was referring to. I'm sure there good at there job, I was just a bit put off by the way one of the elder gentleman spoke to me (maybe a bad day at the office).
Any suggestions for garages in or around Oxford who know there Saabs?

The next nearest is probably the Swedish Car Clinic off the A41 between Waddesden and Bicester.
