    That gen of mint with a hole does create a nice layer of mayo on the cap when it's only used for short runs. One way to check it's condensation instead of hgf is to take it for a longer run and check the cap again.

    Having fixed the intermittent starting with a new DIC, the Saab rewarded me by breaking a rear spring.
    The garage can sort that....if I take a breaker bar to the car it could easily end up being a bonus round from Streetfighter

    Same applies for games of "drink while you think" 
    🤔Is a drinking game thread a good/ painful/liver pickling/  bad idea?

    I sold my last 900 a few years back & put the funds towards a house purchase. I should have just lived in the car.

    I guess I can join this now!

    This bargain lovely was collected from @SRi05 last Tuesday. Previously owned by @NorthernMonkey who fitted a new engine with a new chain and guides. Bought with a 'battery not charging' message on the SID. Ive been using it all week and it's certainly seems to be charging fine. 
    It's a Vector spec with the GM 2.0 low pressure turbo engine and an auto box. I've never really considered a 93 as I always just assumed it would be like driving a Vectra C but this is closer to Lexus levels of refinement in my opinion. It far surpasses the Rover 75 in terms of quietness, smoothness of transmission and the ride is pretty much on par too. Its also a lot bigger than the 75 which adds to the presence. 
    I've bought a service pack and a thermostat and once I've lobbed all that in I'll just see how it goes.

    Just swapped my DIC for a known good workshop example that the local saab specialist lent me and now she's firing up as normal.
    It's satisfying when the parts darts works first time. 
    From the looks of things mine wasn't a genuine saab DIC (no saab markings/stickers on it at all). It didn't give any early warning of imminent failure, just went from starting fine to no spark at all.

    Personally, I would go genuine. It may be dearer but not long term. Ebay specials range from just as good as genuine through to paper weight straight out of the box. Most last around a year...
    So, do you feel lucky?
