Yup, I'm a bit of a sceptic too, although I did have a good experience with it in my company vauxhall corsa. (note the ownership issue there!) I asked the question to see if anyone had any experience of it in a saab. That apart, the nospam website forums have some interesting correspondence, (just google zx1+saab) Seems opinion there is spit between wonder potion and snake oil...
