Spares or Repairs

My previous '02 Aero estate is currently languishing at a well-known SAAB specialist, where it has been declared 'beyond economic repair' as it needs more welding around the rear arches than would be cost-effective for me to pay them to do. If you can do the welding, it could be the basis of a decent car. Alternatively, break it for parts - there's loads of good stuff on there, but I have neither the space nor resources to do it.

Good Points
During my three-year ownership it had loads done to the usual suspects, mainly by JamSaab, including:
  • Regular service (including pollen filter, etc)
  • Sump drop (all clean) & Latest spec PCV breather system
  • Vacuum pipes replaced with silicon
  • Sub-Frame poly-bushed
  • Power Steering pipes replaced
  • Brake pipes (front-to-back) replaced and braided flexis
  • New brake discs & pads
  • New Genuine DIC approx 20,000 miles ago
  • Noobtune Stage 1
  • Air-Con regas
  • Headlights refurbished

Cosmic Blue bodywork is in good condition for age and so is the interior (Black leather with electric memory seats, grey carpets, headlining, etc) Mileage is approx 158,000. All electrics work, audio is AS2 with working 6-CD changer in the boot. No EML Light (or any others) I have a comprehensive folder full of service details from new - all SAAB Dealer or specialist. V5 is in my name.

Bad Points
  • It needs a new exhaust as the original one fell apart shortly before I took it to the garage. It still starts and moves under its own power, but is somewhat noisy!
  • The rear end around the wheel arches, suspension points, etc. is badly corroded and would require a fair amount of welding to pass an MOT.
  • Shocks could do with replacement (which is why I took it to the garage in the first place)
  • Occasional puff of blue smoke on cold start-up when it's been sat for a while.

It would obviously need to be collected.
