The Saab returns

Filed under: Saab — Administrator @ 4:40 pm

I travelled up to Birmingham on the train to collect the now fully functional Saab.

£396.86 for the headgasket, all the work, new thermostat and a few other bits and pieces such as an oil and filter change.

Seems ok to me.

Chatted with Paul at WMSS about his track car and what I should do with mine.

No matter what I do it will never be worth more than £1000, and the suspension work I want will cost that much.

Any comments on whether I should adapt the car for trackdays and at some point strip weight out, are welcome, or you can convince me to spend money I don’t yet have on an E46 M3.

Details of the work below for completeness…

  2. It looks like an interesting vehicle, but I am not sure it is what I ‘need’.

    If I was going to buy an older car, I would prefer one of these

    But I can’t see that happening…
