2006 9-3 Aero
« on: 27 December 2017, 10:40:50 AM »
Well when the weather gets a bit better, and I get the chance to perhaps wash and polish the car, I may try to get some better pics. But for the moment, these are some pics I have of what Santa got me for Xmas (with a little help from myself, of course ;) as he couldn't fit it in the sleigh!!).......

Ooh look...I've never had a turbo gauge on any car I've had before :D Mind you, none of them bar a Zafira diesel had a turbo!!!! And that didn't need a gauge :D

Sadly, the gauge is a bit of a fake!  It does measure the "engine load" and is a measure of an ECU calculation.  But it's not connected directly to the inlet air.  So it's not a boost gauge.  It can be used for some diagnostics, but I can't remember what. ::)

Your car is very beautiful. I like it a lot. It is a very good car. I think you can take care of it.

Like that but will look a lot better with your new Saab centre caps (assuming they fit)!

Thanks Kev, yeah I hope so. The jury is still out on the alloys. I keep wondering whether to put it back on a set of standard Saab 17" alloys.....but then I look at these and quite like them. They need a refurb at some point as they are all scuffed, and one has corrosion too, so debating whether to refurb and keep the anthracite colour, or change them to silver......
