Very neat ignis you've got there, also a bonus to get the optional fog lights. These cars certainly grow on you, plus it goes to show that you don't need huge power to have some fun.


Couldn't agree more :) Oh and thank you :) I'm thinking my ultimate goal would be an M18A motor and box from a Liana to really push the extent of power-to-weight ratio :)

Welcome to the site. Your Ignis Sport looks exactly like mine (..did 150,000 ago :D). Great to hear it has sucked you in.

Think i'd take the FZ Sport M16A over the Liana M18A these days ;)

Good to see some new Ignis Sport owners, I knew people would come around eventually! :lol:

Was that the one in Malvern with the overly-heavy clutch? If so, I gave that one a test drive. That one was listed waaay cheap when it finally sold.

I just bought myself a yellow one:

It's got the SuzukiSport shock absorbers, a tow bar, a monster filter and a louder muffler. Aside from that it's fairly stock.

Welcome back Russell!
Good to see you back in an Iggy Sport!
I saw your car on Carsales, located in Ringwood/Scoresby?
You got it for a great price mate
I bought his SS intake from him back in '12, his car was for sale back then as well
He fitted another custom intake, but has obviously reverted back to factory stock when selling the car
Panels & paint look to be in very good condition
Must try & organise an IS cruise one day...

While there's many reasons the clutch could be heavy, this appears to be one of them. If you pull the box apart, you might want to change this bearing while you're at it:

Quote:
...the original bearing is full of the dirt from the clutch sticking to it and making it difficult to engage the clutch, thats why most HT81S or Ignis Sport owner will feel the pedal getting heavier after 80k mileage.


I bought the Yellow Ignis off a couple in Croydon who I went to high school with - quite the concidence (I'm in Croydon too).

As a bonus, it came with an extra Monster filter and another K&N panel filter that I have sitting in my garage. I'll probably never use them myself (they last forever), so PM me if you're interested in one.

...and another thing! I just got the airbag recall done on mine today. By memory, all of the cars I test drove while car shopping hadn't had both recalls done. The dealer will fix it for free, so I'd recommend checking into a service centre before you next need to use your airbags.

I wasn't aware of a second recall for the airbag?
My car has had the fixes for the 05 driveshaft circlip & the 06 airbag recalls
I can't find any other recalls for the RG415 Sport?

Oh, there's two recalls in total. One for the circlip and one for the airbag. I think the circlip was just for the sport model but the airbag affected all the Ignises.

Hello guys, I haven't been on here in a long time but I just read about clutch issues, I have seen this personally and helps a few other IS owners with this issue. The most common cause for heavy clutch in the ignis sports are normally caused by metal cable worn inside sleeve. new cable from Suzuki is about $100 had to do mine around the 100000km mark. try that before replacing clutch its cheaper.
I hope this helps
Cheers Rowan

It's pretty easy to check if it's the cable too. There's a single finger-tight nut holding it onto the gearbox. Remove it, and see how freely it moves.

Bah, why is everyone in Melbourne! The ignis is getting to be a rare sight on the roads these days. A middle aged lady at a servo saw my ignis, and loved it so much that she wanted to buy one, problem was I had to tell her the ignis is 10 years old now. :lol:

I've only just clocked up 100000kms on mine, hasn't missed a beat over the last few years. :D

Yes, have to agree, not many on the roads at all, even in Melb
How many did they import to Aust? 500?

Got my custom exhaust fitted last week, all the guys in the workshop had never seen one before, they were all enthusiasts, asking me all kinds of question

My Iggy has been faultless, I've only changed the battery so far!
The shocks have to go, they've had it, most likely due to the King Springs

Can you please explain? Is that the motor from the Swift Sport you're referring to??

Hey crew - we've just bought a silver stat write-off Ignis Sport for khanacross and maybe some tarmac rally stuff.

It's also a first car for 14yo Max, who is frothing to take the wheel!

Cheers!

Tim

Agree - I had a heavy clutch and changed my cable recently, fixed.
