2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero.
Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof
along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more
stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.

- 10:18 lap time
Featured cars (in no particular order):
- Volvo S60
- Renault Megane Wagon
- Audi A3
- Renault Clio (2x)
- Porsche GT2/3 RS (4x)
- BMW M1 (2x)
- BMW series 3 (2x)
- Renault Alpine
- This was my 4th lap and also the slowest due to the large amounts of
traffic and a yellow flag situation after Adenauer Forst -- around 3:48
into the video till 05:05.
- You can listen to me complaining about the traffic and two particular
cars that did not want to be overtaken: The white Renault Clio (he doesn't
lift to let me pass after Adenauer Forst even though I was clearly faster) and the Renault Megane Wagon
(Using all the track and tried to close me when I was already on his side
after the Carroussel -- that is when I rang the horn). In the video, due to
lens distortion, you cannot really make how near I was to the cars in
front, but trust me, I just chose not to attack and risk.
- The track is dangerous enough as is, so I don't get it why people "defend
positions"... I had no problems to let cars that were remotely faster past me, but there were a lot of
nutters that thought they were in a race... My number one objective was to
drive home again in the same car I got there with so... no point in taking
stupid risks. No awards at the end!
- The logging software went borked on me so I only managed to get logs for
the last lap -- there are 3 other laps on video coming up soon, and all
those are sub-10 min laps.
If you have video footage of my car, please let me know! :)

Saab 900 turbo on the Stelvio Pass
On August 15th 2010, we drove a MY84 Saab 900 T16 and a MY88 Saab 900 Aero
up and over the Stelvio Pass; also formally known as the 'best driving road
in the world' (Jeremy Clarkson - Top Gear). Besides the fact that we had to
cope with rain, hail and the occasional campervan, it was a delight and the
best day ever spent in an old Saab.
Saab 9-3 start without key
Some sort of "glitch" in the Saab 9-3 2002-2011 makes it possible to start
the car without the key. And thanks to it's chunky key fob you can fit your
thumb in the ignition switch and start the car.
2006 Saab 9-3 Aftermarket GPS Install
I installed a Garmin 1490lmt into my Saab 9-3. There was really no place to
mount it on the dash that didn't block the view out of the car or block the
Saab Information Display on the dash, so I installed it down in the little
storage compartment that would otherwise get filled with junk and change. I
think this looks much cleaner than sticking it to the dash.
The mystery of the Saab headlamp switch
Here's reason #1 why Saabs are known to be "quirky"... The headlamp switch
is not typical. In this video I explain the "modes" that control the
sophisticated lighting system in a 2007 Saab 9-3. I demonstrate how to use
these functions: flash-to-pass, follow-me-home, and remote control.
