    Noticed a bracket hanging down from the car. It was the skidplate that protects the fuel lines. Apparently when I took my car in for inspection they caught it on the ramp/lift when backing it out. Fixed it with a BFH and a floor jack.

    Also put snow tires on for that 1 time a year we get snow that sticks to the roads. I hope we get a bunch.

    So disappointing. That sort of crap only reinforces my low opinion of some shops. They should have told you what happened and given you some compensation.

    Everyone makes mistakes. I highly doubt they noticed it. Were there any real damage or were this a car that mattered, I'd bring it to their attention. I'm not going raise a stink or possibly get someone fired over something that would cost me $3 and 5 mins to pull from the junkyard, if I even feel like doing so.

    Understood. I misread the note and thought they used the BFH and hoped you would not notice.

    Itís better to not worry about petty stuff.

    Picked up a boosted wagon yesterday. Might not be a Saturn but still an odd ball.

    Payed a whole whooping $700 for it with the knowledge it needs some work. With less then $400 in parts it should be good as new.( mostly normal wear and tear items). Then itís time to up the boost to at least aero specs. Which is around 250 hp. Right now it is around 170-180hp depending on where you look. With a larger turbo it can make up to 500hp with only minor bolt ons.

    It happens to be a special Gary Fisher Edition. From the dealer it came with a bike rake and a special edition mountain bike. None of that was included. The 17Ē multi spoke wheels were only used on this version and year. One of them has a big chunk missing on the lip so it needs to be replaced. So if I can happen to find one cheap I will get it or I just replace all of them with aftermarket ones.

    Interesting find, apparently there were only 650 produced and they only came in black or silver. It might be difficult to find a matching wheel for it. I believe they can be repaired though.

    Imo if the wheel is really rare, meaning not just diffrent colors, id get it repaired. If you care to keep it original. Heck, if they are saught after and you don't care, sell em off.
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    That's assuming it is a 2000 Saab 9-5 Gary Fisher Edition. Here's the information that I was reading at http://www.saabnet.com/tsn/press/000228b.html

    In 1999, Saab Cars USA, Inc. and Gary Fisher-two brands with a passion for breaking the rules-teamed up to form the Gary Fisher Saab Mountain Bike Race Team. The partnership immediately proved its merits as the team garnered the world championship title and a world cup victory. This year, the partnership's success will be expressed even further as Saab introduces the Saab 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition.

    CHICAGO-The new Saab 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition is a true sport wagon that combines the performance, safety and cargo-hauling abilities of the Saab 9-5 Wagon with enhanced versatility features that suit one of the world's top mountain bike teams. The vehicle begins with Saab's entry-level 9-5 Wagon, adds the Premium Package which includes leather seats, dual power seats with memory and a premium Harman/Kardon audio system, and offers a number of unique versatility and design features that complement an active lifestyle.

    The Saab 9-5 Wagon, with its standard 73 cubic feet of cargo capacity (with rear seats folded) and aircraft-inspired CargoTracksTM load securing system, is designed to accommodate nearly all needs. However, for those who require even more flexibility,

    the 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition adds:

    A roof rack system with bike carrier and ski holder
    A body-leveling system designed to maintain excellent driving characteristics and ride comfort, even when towing or heavily loaded
    A sliding load floor that allows easy loading of up to 440 pounds of cargo
    A strong cargo load net that separates the passenger compartment and cargo area
    A side cargo net
    A 12-volt power outlet in the cargo area
    A cooling box for refreshments that can chill contents to 41� F.
    Saab has also altered the exterior design of the 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition. It features:
    A body styling package that includes sideskirts, a front lip spoiler and a body- painted rear bumper valence
    White side-indicator lamps
    Special 17" Quad design wheels and high-performance Michelin 225/45 R17 tires.
    In addition, a sport leather-wrapped steering wheel with perforated leather sections and handgrips is also provided.
    To top off the package, a Saab Limited Edition Gary Fisher mountain bike is also included. The bike offers Fisher's 6061 T6 aluminum frame with Genesis geometry, a Rock Shox Judy XC fork, Bontrager Superstock wheels and Shimano Components. The bike, which features unique Saab Team Blue paint with Fisher Team Yellow decals, is only available with this vehicle and has a retail value of $900.

    The Saab 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition will be available this March, and Saab plans to produce only 650 units. They will be available in Silver and Black and, including all of the additional features listed above, will only be $1,880 more than the base 9-5 Wagon with the Premium Package. The price of the Saab 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition will be $36,995.

    Haven’t actually ran the vin yet. The last two owners both left insurance and registration cards in the glove box. All of them say GARYFISH/wagon for model. I will run the vin tonight.

    Took the winter tires back off. Man my daily tires are nearly bald. Now I'm trying to decide between a $300 set of tires or a ~$800 15x8/205 combo

    Drove dad's new-used Trailblazer in yesterdays snow storm. He got all pissy when I was starting to fish tail on acceleration from a light [while in 4WD]
    Then I regretfully informed him his 4WD is not working. Then he got bummed. lol
