Forum rules


We tend to get quite a few 'what's it worth?' threads, now we have somewhere to put them!

Those starting a thread on here should do so expecting the answers to vary.
You are likely to get people attempting to grab a bargain (a 5dr 99 Turbo you say? Probably worth about a hundred quid scrap value - I will bring the cash round and take it off your hands).
You will also get optimistic opinions (there is only 9-3 Sport left in the whole world - I would take it off your hands for £1,000,000 right now but my wife would kill me/your too far away/I've got nowhere to put it).
Also be prepared to be offended because you know what you would like for it/what it owes you (why are you posting here) and no one has said its worth that.

You would probably be better off putting an ad in the Classifieds section with a price that you think is about right...if no-one buys it, lower the price. If the car sells within minutes you might have been able to get a bit more but hey, you have got what you wanted!

People replying to requests should be polite, respectful, and honest please. If you cannot do that, please don't post.
No need to say 'stick it on eBay with a good listing, a 99p start and no reserve' because we have just said it right here...
Any posts found to be breaking these simple rules will be removed.

Some of the classic magazines (Classic Cars and Practical Classics for example) have price guides in the back...it is worth having a look in there if you have got a classic SAAB. Or look in the UKS classified archives for previously advertised cars and asking prices.

German-made conversion kit, bought years ago when I had a wagon but never fitted. Includes 2 shocks, fitting "plates" and bolts/nuts etc. What's it worth to you (I paid £300+) ??
[Will be moved to the classifieds if/when I start to get responses .....]. I have several more photos of these bits if required.

Unfortunately probably not alot today. These kits need holes made in the bodywork for the shocks to pass through to attach to the bolt-in "turrets" which intrude into the boot space.
Today you can buy short, stumpy adjustable telescopics made by Gaz (UK) which can be attached to the original mounting plate for the original lever-arm shocks, so no cutting of bodywork or intrusive turrets.

Although not a help to the original post where are these available please ? We have a couple of 95s and one came with an improvised solution similar to the one you described.

Apologies for not picking up on this earlier. I bought the kit from Malbrad (Steve) a few years ago when i still had a 95 V4 that I was planning to refurbish and use. Time marched on and I went the 96 stroker / 900 vert route! HTH.
