Hey everyone on the forum!

Just want to say Hi, and how glad I am that this community exists. I always wanted to return to Saab driving since my family's 1989 900S Saloon in Malachite Green got scrapped in 2012, and now I have finally made it. We owned that car from new and I can't now believe it seemed ordinary and in the end possible to let go of.

Since buying my 2005 9-5 Vector Sport I have been really struggling with which direction to go on suspension refurb, but I'll hope to get some advice in the threads. The car has done 248,000 miles mostly on the motorways with its second owner (I am the third), and still runs nicely. It had oil changes every 20,000 miles, a B12 setup, which needs sorting out now, and I'm looking forward to a Noob stage 1.

I'll be really glad for advice on the various improvements needed to get this beautiful car to 500,000 miles.

Have a good day!

Welcome to UKS! Saabs seem to rack up high mileage with ease and regular maintenance. I have an OG93 with 285k on the clock, hoping as well to make it to 500k! I'll settle for 300k though.

Thanks a lot!

I know, it makes way more sense to me to maintain and keep on the road!
