hi :)

Posting to introduce myself - I'm the proud owner of a 1996 r170 230 Kompressor. The car has been in the family since new but my mother (who bought the car new in 1996) just upgraded to the latest model and so I now drive this one.

I've been lurking for a day or two gleaning info on how to fix the few issues the car has - leaking roof seals, center console paint flaking off, rattles and knocks from the front suspension and (maybe?) a rattle from either the belts or (hope not) the supercharger itself.

Anyway, that's me. I'll post if I can't find the info I need but I think everything that can go wrong with this car has been covered in the past somewhere on this forum already :D

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:

If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.

If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.

Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.

Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.

New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Ok, I see there are quite a few members here from England!

I'm in Milton Keynes and would love to meet up with fellow enthusiasts in order to get up to speed with the scene. I'm used to being part of a car club but was driving rotaries in the past - a 1993 RX7 and 2004 RX8.
