Last week I decided to treat my self and take advantage of the offer that Hirsch are advertising in the right hand side of this web site.
After doing the chat with Manfred and Jerry my car was booked into my local Saab Garage, Astleys of Yeovil for the engine upgrade treat.
Mike Berry was the man in charge and the first thing he did was download the data from my car to his computer, then plugged into Switzerland and retrieved the new data, then plugged back into my car and transferred the Hirsch upgrade. This all took less than 30 minutes to complete.
The final important bit of the upgrade was for Mike to place the Hirsch badge to the boot of my Saab then go for a test drive.
The difference in torque is phenomenal and you can feel it right away in every gear. I’ve not had the chance to test the speed out but many will already know I’m not a fast driver but I do tow a lot in my work, so its the torque and fuel consumption that really interests’ me. I will test the fuel as I drive to Belgium tomorrow. But I’m liking the changes that I have found so far.
Today the car is in for a full valet ready for that drive to Spa.
