Where do YOU buy Saab spare parts?

We receive a lot of questions regarding Saab spare parts through the contact form here at SaabsUnited. People ask where to find certain parts and many don’t even know that there still are plenty of spare parts available for Saab cars (in most cases).

While it’s nice to help other Saab owners, and we’re more than happy to do it, there’s some room for some improvement here.

So, we now have a dedicated page about Saab parts here at SaabsUnited. It explains the current spare parts situation and features a list of Saab spare parts providers.

The list of parts providers contains the earlier advertisers here at SaabsUnited, there are some companies that the Swedish Saab Club cooperates with and then there are some parts providers that the editors here have recommended.

These are basically Saab spare parts providers that we (and other Saab enthusiasts) use and appreciate.

But our list of parts providers is far from complete. We want your help to expand the list. Since we’re based in Sweden, many of the companies are this as well (but they sell internationally). Spare parts providers in Asia, Africa and South America are particularly wanted.

Where do you usually buy your Saab parts? Do you have a favourite provider? Is there some spare parts provider that you avoid? Let us know about it in the comments below or through the contact form.

Contributions improved (and pink link added)

As you may know, we accept and welcome post contributions here at SaabsUnited. There may not be any new Saab cars built, but there are still many Saab cars, enthusiasts and clubs out there. And we want to read about your Saab experiences here at SaabsUnited.

After having spent some time this Christmas on the user base of SaabsUnited, I can tell you that we now have almost exactly 6 000 registered users. And they have all been “upgraded” from subscribers to contributors. Any new users are also automatically set to contributors.

So everyone registered here at SaabsUnited can now (easily) contribute with posts.

When a new post is submitted by a user, an email is sent to the moderators of SaabsUnited. We can then review the post and publish it, or add comments and send it back for (eventual) rewrite. This review system, with the emails, is brand new and will surely improve our work (and speed up the process for new posts).

I have also added a permanent page about the contribution system with a pink link in the top menu of SaabsUnited. Hopefully this will make it easier for our visitors and users to contribute. Oh, and there’s a thought behind the pink link. Click it and you’ll see. 😉

Last but not least, we still have our regular SaabsUnited editors. Not all of them are as active as before – and there aren’t as many new Saab news nowadays – but several of them still contribute (both here and in other ways), which is much appreciated!

Feel free to let us know in the comments below if there’s anything else that we can do to improve the contribution system here at SaabsUnited. And do contribute with your Saab posts here!

Happy Holidays all Saab enthusiasts!

On behalf of SaabsUnited and Svenska Saabklubben, the Swedish Saab Club, I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Thank you for 2016, we are looking forward to 2017 with you all.

As you may have noticed, SaabsUnited has not been much active lately. This is in part due to lack of Saab news, but mainly due to lack of resources (contributors and editors).

After Saabklubben took over SaabsUnited, I have had to do a lot of maintenance on this site. As an example, more than 4 000 spam users have been (manually) checked and removed. All in order to keep SaabsUnited working in the future.

Saabklubben wants SaabsUnited to continue being a relevant and accurate news/enthusiast site for Saab owners in 2017 (and onwards). But this will require your help. Every user at SaabsUnited is a contributor (as noted here: Contribute to SaabsUnited). So please do contribute to SaabsUnited!

Now, personally, I’m looking forward to spending Christmas with my mother-in-law in Gothenburg, since it means that we get to visit the Saab car museum in Trollhättan on our way back home. 😉

SaabsUnited, a slight facelift

As you probably can tell by now, we’ve changed the theme of SaabsUnited. The old theme had been abandoned (by its developer) since more than two years back. This caused the old theme to lack certain functions and potentially contain security holes.

We’ve carefully selected a new theme that is similar to the old one. The new theme is actively updated and works well with all screen sizes (from smart phones to computers and even 4K resolution screens). We’ve also tried to keep all things “as they were” in regards to menus, login form, ads etc.

Again, SaabsUnited will still be SaabsUnited.

We’re not done with the new theme. Among other things we’re gonna add the right logotype (an original of it doesn’t exist, to my knowledge, so it has to be recreated). We also want to make it easier to browse the archive and find (older) interesting posts.

As always, feel free to let us know if there’s something you like/dislike in the comments.

Contribute to SaabsUnited!

SaabsUnited is now managed by Svenska Saabklubben, the Swedish Saab Club, a non-profit organization since 1976 with more than 3 000 members (of which 10 % are international members). We intend to maintain the archive and history of SaabsUnited, as well as improve and expand SaabsUnited with new posts and Saab relevant content.

In the past, SaabsUnited has primarily consisted of posts by certain authors. They have done an excellent job with the site and they are all more than welcome to continue contributing here. Separate information has been sent out to them as well.

But now we need your help. All of you Saab enthusiasts, clubs and alike. We want to read about your Saab cars, projects, meet ups, thoughts and adventures. We want to see your pictures and view your videos. The Saab community is still strong, let’s show it here at SaabsUnited!

Svenska Saabklubben is taking over SaabsUnited

Saabklubben loves SaabsUnitedToday an agreement has been made between Svenska Saabklubben (the Swedish Saab Club) and the owner of SaabsUnited, Till Drescher, where Saabklubben will be taking over the management of SaabsUnited. The primary objective is to make sure the website is properly maintained, so that the content and history of SaabsUnited isn’t lost. Saabklubben intends to keep SaabsUnited as it is, with the crowdsourced community earlier described by Alphonse (where visitors contribute with posts).

SaabsUnited will still be SaabsUnited.

Saabklubben is a non-profit organization founded in 1976, with more than 3 000 active members (approx. 10 % are members outside of Sweden). We care for all models of Saab – from Saab 92 to Saab NG9-5. Saabklubben has a member exclusive spare parts production, with close to 10 000 parts for Saab 92 up until Saab 9000. We also have a close relation to Orio (former Saab Parts) and provide our members with spare parts for their newer Saab car models.

Saabklubben cooperates with several companies that provide parts and accessories for Saab, from Maptun and Nordic Tuning to CardYourCar and Speedparts. These companies provide our members with certain discounts. Saabklubben also provides its members with better insurances for their classic cars, a membership magazine, events and track-days and much more. Saabklubben has local sections in many parts of Sweden, from Skåne and Trollhättan to Norrland and Stockholm.

Feel free to read more about Saabklubben, in English, here: http://saabklubben.se/?lang=en

Existing authors of SaabsUnited are welcome to continue with their contributions and posts here. The site and content will be transfered to the server environment of Saabklubben, which is the exact same as SaabsUnited (WordPress). This means that there will be no changes to the look, feel and functions of SaabsUnited. As when SaabsUnited has changed management before, all authors will be able to have some or all their post removed if they so wish.

Saabklubben will add a number of new editors to SaabsUnited, to ease the management and moderation of the crowdsourced posts.

Finally, we don’t want SaabsUnited to be something of the past. To preserve is important, but we also want to develop and improve SaabsUnited (with your help and feedback). We would love to be able to increase the activity and community of SaabsUnited. The enthusiasts, the clubs and the companies supporting Saab all deserve it. There are also a lot of rumours about Saab, Nevs and so on. SaabsUnited has been, and can still be, the most reliable source of all things Saab.

Again, this agreement was made here today. We have just informed all the authors and major contributors of SaabsUnited. If you have any questions regarding this, let us know in the comments below. You can also contact me, the webmaster of Saabklubben, directly at [email protected].
