 8)  :)

I'm still learning what people have if it isn't in their signatures, so I am delighted there's another 9000 still around here. More on SORN than taxed these days though, having read the "anyone still running a 9000" thread and done an up to date check. I was getting a bit worried, 4 years and no updates.

What did I do today - well yesterday in truth, and related to stripping the breaker. I had noticed a couple of weeks ago that the drivers front upper speaker had gone a bit silent.

A couple of minutes work and the speaker was off, the donor was tested and working so great, not an unit/amp problem, and 5 minutes later the in car entertainment was back to full strength. It almost took more time to read how to access the speaker and get the right size torx bit than to do the repair.

At last year's National Rally at Prescott Hill Climb there was only one 9000...  it won a prize for best in class!! :D

However in Trollhättan on Saturday there were plenty of all flavours of Saab.  Well over 1000 cars. :)   Including a street of 9000s parked both sides!  :Fawlty:
