Ha ha - yeah, In Doylestown - Saab and Caddy building - I'm there every morning fixing sport sedans. Also in most Saturday's till 3pm. (if I'm not busy I'll be glad to techII something for anyone local) I know it's hard for most of you to get free service sometimes, but I can be nice and offer help as I can give it.
My education is almost done for this year... $26,000 and 20 months of Automotive Training Center in Exton PA - Full Automotive and Diesel tech - will have both my state license's shortly - only have Emissions as of the moment and ASE's are going to start being taken in Spring. Once I'm full time in June I'll be waiting for GM/Saab factory training if it's still offered and I'm going to aim to become a Saab Master Tech (if it still exists) - otherwise get what I can from the dealership for a few years and go on my own, take over a shop or move into a independant Saab Specialty shop. I'd like to try my hands at a tuning shop for Saab's if the money was there.... But I want reliable pay too with some benifits (thus the dealership)

Burns, I want your job.
What kind of education have you had?

Do you work at the dealer in Doylestown? I've been there before, I almost traded in my Ford Explorer with 20s for an 02 9-3 SE from there. I test drove it while my Explorer was being appraised and I think I may have been on the same road that you like to rip the Viggens on lol

I clean every car's underhood area that I work on - cars go out cleaner under the hood then they come in. Most of the Viggen owners are old women or tightwad dudes - so someone needs to clean out the engines for them, otherwise the cars will get unhappy. Cars are meant to be driven hard now and again.

|BurnsSide42||Nice buy man - those rotors are HEAVY man. I ust did brakes on a Viggen the other day - some big stuff! I drive about 1-2 different Viggen's a month now, it's kewl - I get to push them around corners and not hafta worry about gas expense (but i'm not abusing your cars either - just giving them a proper throttle opening)|

I love Ebay
I have been keeping my eye out for stock Viggen rotors. My brakes feel fine, but the slots are definately not as deep as they were when new and these are original.
I usually see them for 200-210 online.
I sniped a set new in the box for $102. I LOVE ebay :P
