    I'm looking for one in Connaught, will let you know if I hear of one in the East.

    There's an independent specialist near Baldonnell aerodrome but unfortunately I don't remember his name. There's another indy saab shop in Fairview called C.D. Motors (ask for collin).

    Alternatively if you have a good general mechanic you can buy all your parts online from and and get your local to service it, and save a good bit of money.

    Elkparts are pricey so it pays to shop around once you figured out the part number you need.

    Bought my Saab from a Saab dealer in Monaghan, their approach to service is poor. Have also had car at a Dublin Saab dealers service department with little satisfaction.

    So, I'm looking for a North Midlands (Meath, Westmeath, Longford, Cavan or Roscommon etc.) Independent Saab specialist if anyone has any good experiences to share.

    Join a forum like Saabscene. It focuses on the technical side of things and is very informative

    I did my saab phase a couple of years ago, travelled the country to all of the 'specialists' who all claimed to be the most knowledgeable and didnt speak highly of the competitors.. Spent a fortune chasing gremlins and in the end up my local mechanic fixed it.. Lesson being that it wasn't a complex fix, it was complicated by people making decisions from experience opposed to diogenes.

    Id second that lost a few quid on a saab scrapped it in the end far easier fix they can be absolute money pits ,lovely cars but a torment electric wise and endless issues
