Hello everyone!

Well, I've had my silver 9-3 SE Cab Design Edition for just over 9 years now, and have always loved her to bits as she's the first car I've ever bought! I wasn't always able to look after Lottie very well as for a number of years she was just a workhorse and to be honest, I did bare essentials maintenance. Over the last 6 years the level of TLC definitely increased! Over the course of time she's had a fair bit of work from the folks at Abbott Motorsport, to GREAT effect! Uprated brakes, braided hoses, Viggen restoration kit, full stainless 3" exhaust, different turbo and ECU remap.
I bought her with 49k on the clock and she now has 145k, so I've definitely given her some use. That's even with having a couple of company cars at the same time for a few years.

I'm getting to the point where she's not in great shape thanks to corrosion, so I'll be taking her off road at some point in 2017 and I'd like to do a restoration. I'll be asking for thoughts and advice soon.
That's what's made me look up this forum. I've been a member on another one for a while and it's proved amazing for my other toy, and a great bunch of people. It looks like you all have some good banter and look after each other and your cars too.

I look forward to hearing from people and I guess I'll pop up with some questions before long.

Happiness,
Stevie
