I've bought myself a copy of the Bentley manual for the 16-valve engined Saab's which is useful for my car even though it's an earlier 8-valve engined model. I can't find anywhere which has the Bentley manual for the 8-valve engined Saab's available as a *new* item. I prefer to buy soft-covered books new. Something I have scored are genuine metal-binder encased workshop manuals for the 1979-1983 Saab 900's... They'll be invaluable reference material.
