Hi, I wonder if I could get a few opinions here about brakes, i.e. is it imperative to have Saab or Saab-approved people fit Saab-branded pads or does anyone use 'regular' fitters and non-Saab pads? I have a '99 9-5 SE Estate (Wagon) and I'm sure much like other folks here am finding the very high cost of these along with tyres, servicing, repairs, etc. somewhat crippling and would like to try to make savings where possible but not at the expense of potentially ruining the car or adversely affecting the value if it comes to that. We all know what Saab would advise but there must be some flexibility, especially for 'older' cars? Thanks in advance, John
