    Default Who owns the Swift GTI?? Some questions

    Sorry, to take over the forum for this but.....

    Who on the board owns the Swift GTi?? I know someone does but who??

    I just need to know where to get one serviced, with people who I can trust. Plus maybe where to get parts etc...... one of the air hoses from the airfilter for the injection is cracked.

    My g/f just bought her first car, an '88 Series 1 Swift GTi with 178,000Kms on it. It appears she has a car to learn on and I *MAY* have a car to take to wakefield with some of the guys

    thanks for any help.

    I think it is tekkie.
    Not a bad car for a first one, i've driven one before & it surprises me constantly, you just don't expect the speed & handling that it provides.

    Score my g/f lives at west ryde so not too far from gladesville would be a good place if hes will to.........

    Thanks guys. Drove it home from the dealer yesterday, it really is a fun car to drive but with the DRAIN PIPE its got for an exhaust at the moment it gets some funny looks...........Don't know how long she will put up with the noise.

    But I did manage to convince her to put in the Alarm, 3point immobiliser, ultra sonics and remote central ASAP....... So thats next week.

    Anyone know if a Black Widow Black wire or something is a good alarm system?? bout $450 or something at strathfield, might look around for prices.

    yup its me. with the swift.

    its a lovely car to drive round, and round, and round, and round, and round, and round, and round the track

    I dont let others touch the swift. Its a project car, and as such the daily maintenence is done by yours truly every 2nd meeting. Treated right they should last.
    Any competent mechanic can service it, and as it was mentioned Paul is your man as he used to help out on the GTP swift when they raced as a one make series.

    If you are after some tips or suggestions when the car breakes or you want bit upgraded let me know. For problems etc, either email me, or goto www.teamswift.com

    Thanks again guys esp Tekkie

    I'm just getting to know the car and stuff about it at the moment. Only need to keep it in reliable running order ATM, but I reacon odds on I'll inherit the car in a year or two then the fun begins (unless I get a nice Mi16 first)

    Gotta get this exhaust changed, its driving me CRAZY
