iv had my sparco wheel for almost a year now, and it still looks brand new, even driven from queensland to melbourne and back with it on!
the trick to them is to get a suade comb, and watch out what products you use on you skin, sunscreen will kill the wheel within a few months...

Like anything really, if you look after it, it will last

Haha, anyone who uses 'products' on their skin shouldn't be driving a Swift GTi anyway... a Golf GT maybe, a BMW 1 series or something...

i had to use products on my hands and still do ocasionally because the skin cracks and peels off my hands due to always having chemicals like paint stripper and thinners on my hands...

should i sell my car because i care about my hands? i like my hands to be decent and not looking like i have a disease or some s**t

slappers dont like rough hands on their bits Ellis :roll:

then I'm just going to put it out there that your musical taste and general attitude toward people less intellectual as your self means you should sell your swift, buy a set of driving gloves and a bowling hat then go down and buy an A series Mercedes :wink:


end hijack, carry on with the Mk2 goodness

Shall do!

First I must sell my car:
"Here we have a delightful third mark Su-zoo-kay Swift Grand Tourer (injected), we shall start the bidding at, let us say, 25 thousand pounds. Do I hear twenty five?"

Had dad tow me home today after driving home. A lot of flooding in our area due to the rain so a lot of roads had ankle deep water which the zuki didnt like. Funny, it was running well until i said to my self "well the zuk hasnt let me down yet" split second later i had nothing. No CEL or spark. Switched to myspare ECU and still nothing it just cranks.

anyone have any ideas??

So that happened just from ankle deep water? How did water get up near the spark or electrics?

check all your fuses under the bonnet and under your dash. check to see that your afm wiring is ok and also check the earh leads on the passenger side of the inlet manifold near the back. then report your findings mate

Trust me i wouldnt drive it through any deeper.

Fuses and earths are all AOK. might my other ECU also been toasted after i plugged it in??
I had this problem once before when something shorted the ECU and there was no CEL on the dash. Switched to another ECU and everything was all good.

Maybe something is tripping out and wrecked your other ECU? Try your second ecu in another GTi if possible.

Well its back up and running. Took the ECU to the auto electricians and they found that a resistor or something had messed up. i got under the car armed with a can of WD40 and an air gun and blasted the crap out of the alternator plug and every other connection i could get my fat hands on. started first go :)

also put the new throttle cable in...will post some pictures of the old one. Will take the car out tomorrow night for a run as it is parked in and i cant be bothered moving cars...
