Re: You should know

Don't use super in your Swift Sport. Saw an unlucky soul filling super into their red swift sport last week (well as I pulled in to the station, they just finished filling up and was removing the RED pump nozzle thingy). The SSS needs 98 RON fuel, and 95 RON MINIMUM. 95 = PREMIUM! Read the label on ...

Re: You should know

Do diagonal rotations on the Swift Sport (my 2c). The front left tyre wears out faster than all the others (due to the open diff and the 'box being on that side perhaps?), and will cause the car to pull to one side. If doing a diagonal rotation, remember the OEM tyres on the Sport are unidirectional...

Re: New 2011 swift review

^^Why not buy a used Swift Sport auto? Might run you a bit less, and it might be more down your alley in terms of sporty-ness.

2012 Swift Sport for Frankfurt?

Not sure if this is a repost. Looks like hopes of a 1.4 twincharged engine may have been shattered. http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/wp-content/uploads//2011/08/Suzuki-Swift-Sport.jpg The next-gen Suzuki Swift Sport will debut at the 64th Frankfurt Auto Show on September 13.

Re: Car Polishing 101

Karim, any thoughts on Optimum's new OptiCoat 2.0? I'm an ONR user myself...albeit, not a huge fan of it. For folks who don't know....it's a PERMANENT paint coating. it doesn't wash off or anything. the ONLY way to remove it after it cures, is by significant polishing. Also, on the Mohs hardness sca...

Re: Owners of Kia Cerato/Cerato Koup

Looks like the 2011/12 Ceratos are gonna be equipped with the new 140 ps 1.6L GDi engine (along with the 6 speed auto), that Kia showed in the new RIO at the NYAS IIRC.

Sounds pretty decent.

Re: PANG!! - Rebuild.....

^^Well it sounds like since the engine is properly built now (as opposed to the old one being on it's way out) you should be getting a better feel of what the car can do with that turbo setup.

Did you check ADAH for the PS pump? Even if he doesn't have it, he may be the guy to get it for you.....

Re: 2010 Sx4 M16a vs SSS M16a

I can't figure why the lower rev limit though.



Didn't the series 1 SSS (M/T) limit @ 6800? The series 2 went up to 7200 if memory serves.

As a side note anyways......and ditto on the compression ratio.
