Does anyone know if parts can be obtained in the UK from the likes of Saabklubben yet?
Cheers

Don't think so.
From what I heard a couple of few months ago, the SAAB Klubben is going to be re-structured some time this year, after which they might be able to get set up to be able to export to individuals in the UK.
If you need something from them, contact Bill Jones at Saabits, he'll buy it from the SAAB Klubben on your behalf.
He did it for me last year, for a couple of gearbox bearings.

I'm not completely up to speed as to why they can ship to him, but not to private individuals.
He's a registered company of course.

With the stories that now abound about customs costs, hassle, delays etc, (one couple just had to pay 6000 quid to import their OWN stuff, when making a house move from France, back to the UK),you really have to ask what on earth was Brexit all about?

Does anyone know what taxes, duties etc would be payable if you went to Sweden to buy an old 96, and brought it back to the UK?
