i have bought a 2005 9-3 linier 1.8t with 100k km on the dile.
first few month it felt like heaven to drive, and then shit hit the fan, and i spent a fortune on this car, and about to spend some more....

battery just died had to change it, and fuel pump before that,,, and now retention..
however its my recent issue that worries me... at some point last week the car had very funny idling while parked, it felt like it was choking, and wont even move properly,, only until i start driving then its all gone,,,,
the next day as i was driving on the highway on cruise control, the cruise control just died, i pressed the gas and realized that turbo was gone too, though i can still hear it whistling.

funny thing is once u restart the car its back on. till it dies again when ever it feels like it. and when turbo is down cruise control wont work.
when the turbo is down first gear barely works, i need to switch to tip tronic to get moment from the car...
and yesterday i noticed that when parked rev goes up a bit then drops over and over again...

that being a long story short....
so any opinions, ill appreciate the help....

and also any links to fixing soft tops would me helpful

thanks guys.
