Replaced the rear brakepads and did a general check for the APK/MOT. Also made a sticker that the car can now proudly wear after the visit to the ring

Still going strong, the car already aided in picking up new bed and many parts. My GF also got her licence and as expected made her first damage on the car.



I tried to "fix" it but i will be looking for a new bumper or i'll get color coded paint made, this was pretty close for coming straight from the store and it at least covered up the white scratch. I did not have clear coat so it dried matt not gloss. Might retry it again when i have some time with clear coat to see if the color will match better. but i think the color shade is just a little too much off with this one.

Been driving this car well over a year now. Drives smooth, has nice sunroof and cold A/C.
But still, I'm starting to think I need to replace the S90 for something cheaper. (its around 2000 euro in insurance and road tax alone)

I had some changes in my life that trigger this

* bought a house
* changed job "no longer going to customers"
* house is now closer to work (around 15-20 min drive VS the 1+ hour drive I used to have)

Getting a car that weight less like a 940 could already cut the costs in 2, but maybe I need to look around for something else. Or maybe I'll just keep driving the S90 till something breaks.

I had some trouble with the LPG system, had the ECU replaced ($$$) and a few months later another part failed.
I decided i wanted to get a new LPG system or pull the LPG and use petrol (lower tax rate)

After LONG debating i pulled the LPG and had the plate changed to petrol, saving the money of the LPG system to put into an estate with LPG already in it 2e hand.

What system was in there and what was really the problem? I hardly see any problems with the LPG systems themselves. Usually it's bad wiring (or grounds) or broken solenoids.

If my old 960 was a wagon I'd still be driving it. Great car. Keep in mind all the FWD wheels fit on this car with no mods....

FWIW I think some (at least Tethys) need spacers.

Is this photo taken on the moon? Or somewhere else where there is no gravity?

Yeah still have it and boy does it have it in for me after 5 years.
Gave the car a service and it ran lumpy after. Surly the wireharness here as they all degrade.
Replaced a connector and she ran again. Time for MOT.

the failed list of the MOT:

Stuck caliper at the back
Broken exhaustclamp
Battery lose (ok i just trew a new one in there)
Both control arms need replacing
Reverselights dont work
Leaks on steeringbox
Worn pads

Today i went about fixing the reverse lights, last year i had the same issue related to the wiring / connector. Cleanened them out and not the pnp switch lights came one.. uhhh

Going to grab a beer now ..

I like the white as well. But only because my '96 is White as well. Have owned for over 5 years. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is not a wagon. And I have FWD wheels on mine. A set of 16" Comet wheels. Same offset and same size as the stock 960 wheels. But I think I'm going back to stock wheels.
