lol i dont really like the sun visors, they're too big, and I have to slouch even lower in my seat to see when they are down...

and the thin easy scratch paint can be a bit frustrating...

was browsing through suzitech this morning and found another thing i thought was odd on the swift. There is no console over the E brake. So i think i may order one of those. Just handy having somewhere to rest your hand :)

theres quite a few things, specially with the indoor lighting...

the door lights are at the front so when people at the back need light, theres none!
also with the doors. no safety lights when u open the door (hehehe going to put some neon lights in!!)

Yeah i got one off ebay for like $35 from china or whatever - while the internal space is meh (is supposedly can fit 3 CD's, but mine is not tall enough to actually fit 3 CD standing up), the coin holder is useful - but its great to rest your elbows on...

By e-brake you mean handbrake right?

Yeah E brake = hand brake. Sorry had been watching some initial D and had drifting on the mind when typing it up. The lights in the rear do sorta suck so i may look at getting some lighting in there as well.

yeah ive got an 07' model swift and my window is usually down. never heard a rattle!

btw brien, if u find any problems with ur swift u should let them know straight away. even if ur not taking it for a service or anything. the longer u have ur swift with the problem, the more troublesome it will be for them to accept that it was a factory mess up and fix it for free.

You remind of something that sh*ts me:

the amount of pressure required on the gear stick when quick shifting from 2nd > 3rd. Its as if the synchro isn't keeping up. If i drive nice and vanilla ice cream, then all fine, but once i start giving a bit from 1st>2nd>3rd the shifter hates me. 3rd>4th>5th are all fine.

Some AHole Red P Plater "key scratch" my beautiful 2 Weeks old White Sport at local Video Store.

Besides that..nothing much...I love it. Handles Great!

Oh maybe it needs more storage space. or maybe a M18A would be great. or S/C M16A.

Anyway, I love my Sports.

I had no rattles in my O5 Z swift or in my Sports so guess its just pot luck only thing that the sports dont have is the tray under the passengers seat that was handy.
