goodness, i thought i was the only guy w/ over 100k on my 930. i swear, people must be disconnecting their speedos left and right because i seem to see a lot of really beat 930's with super-low miles (<50k). kudos for actually driving your car.

Congratulations... I've got 58k more to go... Hope I see it one day!

BTW: What is the switch [i circled] for? I have one of those, but, it's on the LS under the dash. Yours is more on the RS...

Thanks

Congrats on the 100k----would be interesting to know about engine work, if any, to date and if any modifications the engine has.

Hey Mooney265,
The switch is for your electric mirror adjustment selection right/left mirror. I'll hit 70k on mine in a couple of weeks.

I keep seeing cars for sale with 30k and think the same thing.
I just hit 70,000 miles on mine and had it dynoed. 411 rwhp and running great.
These cars should be driven and enjoyed.

This is good to hear cuz I'm lookin for a 930 to use as a daily driver and was worried about runnin up the miles. This is a testament to the fact that these cars aren't only sex on wheels, but they are actually drivable & not just garage queens!

That switch, right side of Tach, is for the rear wiper. The mirror selection switch is on the left side.

On my '87 the switch that is circled is momentary and operates the small washer pump under the small windsheild washer bottle next to the master cylinder.
It is marked for a higher concentration of washer detergent in the owner manual and it sprays water out of the nozzles for about 3 seconds after pressing it.

When putting on bigger wheels and tires the big washer bottle in front of the driver side tire usually rubs on the tire during fast right turn cornering so you can remove it and just use the little washer bottle and that switch.

I've never seen another car with 2 windsheild washer bottles and pumps, but I wouldn't be surprised if some old Mercedes does too.

Sorry, yOu are correct, that switch operates the small washer on mine also.
