I'm a first time Saab owner. I bought a 2008 9-3 TiD 150 sportswagon back in November. It's been modified a bit. It has a full custom made stainless steel exhaust system with no silencers. Sounds great! Black Aero alloys with some spacers and I think its been lowered too. Possibly it's been remapped as it goes very well especially considering its an automatic. I've had some trouble with a 'Stability Control System Failure' message on the dashboard, so bought a Tech II clone and diagnosed the problem as being a broken steering angle sensor. I bought a second hand SAS from eBay for £27, pulled the CIM apart and replaced the SAS, then calibrated with the Tech 2 today. Quite pleased to have figured out how to do all of that with info from this forum, other SAAB forums and Youtube. I've had quite a bit of fun setting up TIS2000 on a modern laptop with no serial port so that it will talk to the Tech II to gain security access!

Welcome to UKS :D

When you think you know it all, it's a sure sign you don't.

Hi I'm in west Wales too and could do with some diagnosis on my 9 3 as it's a non starter at the moment.
