    Used bumpers from ebay go for over $600. Body parts for 2006+ cars are getting rare and expensive.

    Were you able to confirm that the timing chain did in fact break? I've never heard of this happening. You either have incredibly bad luck or your mechanic was pulling on over on you.

    People show their cars and win awards. People take pictures. People sell stuff. People talk to eachother. Basic stuff really.

    A TCM reset is used so that the transmission can relearn shift points. Anytime work is performed on the transmission, like replacing a valve body, it's a good idea to reset the TCM. If the...

    I would try vinyl wrapping the trim piece too. It can easily removed and won't scratch like paint.
  8. Stealth AUX mod for 2006-2009 9-5 **VERY EASY**

    I recently did a very easy mod to my 2006 9-5 to hide the aux cable in a better looking location. Basically you remove the stock radio (4 T25 screws) and use a male to female aux cable to move the...

    I see no reason why this shouldn't work for 2006+ xenon cars as well. The D1S bulb retaining clip can easily be removed with the headlight in place.

    Thanks Frank, I will look into getting new springs/shocks. Do you think it is doable for the home mechanic with hand tools?

    I'm with you. Does anyone know where we can get stuff for these BIAC cars? They are using the exact same drivetrain from a 2009 9-5, so parts should be readily available.

    I understand that shims will fix the camber, but I'd rather treat the root cause of the problem rather than repair its after effects.

    9-5 proper alignment question.

    The general consensus seems to be that all 1998-2009 9-5's will suffer from increased rear camber leading to uneven tire wear. My 2006 has badly cupped tires in the rear.


    Is this excessive rear...

    I would do a 3x drain and fill of the transmission. What you have is called "flaring" It might be due to failing solenoids (cheap) or a bad valve body (kinda pricey). Do you have the 5 speed or 4...

    Bueautiful 9-5 boost. I'm looking at an 06 down in SC where I live. Can you give me a good ballpark price range for an 06 with 110k miles in "very good" shape. How much was yours when you bought it?
