In the forums, you'll find a poster called 'Nutcase' (Richard) who's lovingly restored a 99T (the full story is in the 99 section of the SAAB Central forums) and recently installed APC. APC is an improvement, anyway, not a "mod"! I've yet to see his car and had hoped to next weekend at the Gripen SAAB chapter of the UK SOC meeting, but it sounds like he's not attending now. They've extended their invitation to non-members, so a bunch of us are gate-crashing :) Paul
