I actually found no difference between the Halford's own and Bosch leads (running on the same car for around 5,000 miles per set, before finding a set of Bougicord). Both are available at Halfords, so take your pick. My favourite is Bougicord, but there's some debate as to whether these are any better than Bosch. As for the PS fluid, I use Castrol TQ-F (again, available at Halfords). It's actually automatic transmission fluid, but does the job fine. I've used this on my '85 900i and have just topped up my '89 900 Turbo. Good luck with the MOT. The 2 door is a great shape (I trust you have a spoiler-less pure shape :) and anyway, I'm missing my old 900i since passing it on to it's new owner. Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
