Glad I found this site.<P>I have a 1996 850R with 88,000 miles on it. I have the IPD ECU upgrade and Borla stainless steel exhaust. I am having problems with a few things and am wondering if anyone has experience with these:<P>1) Rattling from right rear suspension. I already changed shocks to Bilsteins. Dealer and suspension shop cannot easily determine the problem and dealer wants to charge an hourly fee to find the problem. I believe the problem is from where the shock is attached to the body, whatever that part is called, but I can't determine it for sure.<P>2) Trip computer only displays metric. If I set it to US, only the temperature displays F but everything else still displays metric.<P>3) Loud bang comes from under the hood sometimes on cold starts. I have not been able to determine the problem and dealer gives the ubiquitous "didn't do it here" response.<P>Any help will be appreciated.<BR>

on #1 I had just done new shocks and springs, plus new brake pads on my wagon and had a rear rattle. Turned out to be Ebrake hardware. The tech had me drive the car and when we hit a bumpy road he just notched up the handle a little to show it would stop the noise. So it was like 1.5 hours labor to pull the ebrakes apart and now it's fine. FINALLY.<P>maybe something to check?
