Just bought a C5 2.2HDi and very pleased with it, done the drop links and also replaced the drive belt damper pulley already!

Saab is a play thing now, 17mpg around town hurts the pocket but the performance is contagious. :lol: The HDi returns early 30's which makes a change from the Saab's pocket emptying game. :mecker:

My parents are so restrained, they have a 2000 W plate 93 Aero 205hp HOT, and the MPG gauge always says 32mpg, how they do this I have no idea?!
