That is a good replacement for a stock system. Similar design to stock but not a "performance" system. If you want performance you need to look at a 3" downpipe and potentially 3" cat-back.

OK, I think this should be then the right one. Old one is so messed up and rusted all the way.

Searching better price. My local dealer asks 415€. Any UK online site where this item is sold ? :corn:

OK, bought 064-H7 and also exhaust clips. Delivery time for exhaust is 3 weeks. Finally got it better price, what was 399 €.

Exhaust clips from Bosal:

OK, big problem - my passenger side electrical, heated and auto dimming mirror is broken (brown). I hav ebeen searching new one, but it's impossible. SAAB doesn't offer anymore autodimming mirror glasses, but also I dont find any alternative ones :( :(

Mirror: http://imgur.com/a/lFW5a

Could anyone tell me, where can I get new one or used one ? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Can anyone please tell me, what causes this annoying sound, when tires are completely turned out.

That's your PAS pump struggling on full lock. Have you check the PAS fluid level?

Thanks!

Will check fluid level and if this OK, then I should consider to change whole pump ?

EDIT: Found this threat: http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showt ... p?t=128524 - The cause may be the belt. To change the longer one should eliminate the problem.

What is the cost of this belt and how its called ? :roll:

So, looked fluid level today. In my opinion, there is enough of it.

Could be the pump seals. When they go bad, the pump gets noisey as the pressure escapes through the shafts
