So gave it a polish and a quick go over needs a proper machine polish soon with some new pads but it looks great to the untrained eye. Next week i am plasti dipping the Dame Edna chrome and getting it ready for its MOT hopefully i can get the ABS light to turn off :?

It does give it a sense of presence, would it not have been easier to remove the trim?

Diffuser was from a Polish ebay seller, cost about £90 delivered. Exhaust is custom made by PPTuning.com, both back boxes removed. Cost £120

Cars booked in with Nottingham Saab in bullwell for the ABS light and to check my Zenons to see if the adjustment is out or the bulbs themselves are gone. Once I have a price and it's fixed it's MOT time

I also painted the chrome strip, tried with and without for a couple of weeks - eventually deciding to paint the chrome black. I do have pics but they're on photobucket so not working - I did remove all the trims for painting, very fiddly.

So took my car to get fixed at Nottingham saab and turns out it needs lots of work so I bit the bullet and getting everything fixed. When it's all done i will get some pics up but I knew this would happen as it had not one bit of service history. To be honest I am just glad I'm keeping another Saab on the road it's a cool car and quite rare around here so feels special
