    Wow, a donkervoort! The best looking seven in my eyes, plus built to a very high level of quailty. Welcome to the club :D Can't wait for the go pro videos.

    Ringmeet 2013 - Is that the turbo?

    Does anyone have any pics of my Saab at the camping they don't mind me using on another forum? I need to write a little piece on there. p.s that quad-copter video is EPIC!

    Ownership Verified: We can rebuild it... we have the technology (7 - take two)

    Yes, one of those keychain cameras, i don't recall which model, but one with proper (ha) HD. The car is good, learning to control it better and better, but the cycle wings are starting to break due to all the cones i'm hitting while slaloming. :P Not sure if i'll join you guys in a few weeks...

    Removing the turbo is less work than the sump. But if you have to remove the exhaust manifold, the bolts holding it in place have been known to break.

    Those were the wrong plugs, maybe the engine might work a bit better now (reset the ecu by leaving the car off the battery for 30 minutes, it'll reset the adjusted maps caused by the spark plugs). Dropping the sump on those cars is quite a bit of work, i bet it took you a while! :) But a great...

    Seems like a great camera for the money, after seeing your video i went out for a drive too and mounted a camera on my sunglasses. Now I'm so disappointed in the quality of mine. :p A good microphone (+recorder?) would make it even more awesome, have you ever looked into one...

    Ecopower = Trionic 7 engine (not trionic 5). + boost gauge = 185HP. Also less cleaning more driving now that it's awesome weather :D

    You have the 185HP version then, the 150HP version didn't come with a boost gauge (unless someone retrofitted another dash..). 150(4) and 185HP versions had the same turbos. Only the aero, viggen and a certain US model had a bigger turbo.

    Thanks, found the photos in the euro trip thread. AFAIK the Vectra had very different front suspension. For our race car we've been trying to find coil-overs but it seems like we need to get them custom made. p.s those are also they alloys to have, they suit the car very well! :D

    Nice car! In terms of bang for buck it's hard to beat a Saab in de UK. If it's a 2000 model year it'll have the the T5 generation engine, these are bullet proof. But 150 Hp says T7, A T5 version would have 154HP. T5 = Red DI cassette + oil cap above the center of the engine. T7 = black DI and...

    Do you think Top Gear would improve if Richard Porter wasn't behind any of the jokes?

    Same here, i enjoy the podcasts, site and tweets (specialy during f1 races). I've never read his books though.
