ID-Workz Suzuki Swift Sport Shop Car

Hi guys,

We're back with another blog for our latest purchase; a Swift Sport ZC31S. Having recently sold our little IQ I thought the Swift would be an ideal replacement. I test drove one and was pleasantly surprised at how much fun these little cars are. The rev-happy M16A engines features VVT which revs forever and the chassis feels so light and agile - it's no wonder they use these as hire cars at the Ring! By no means is this a fast car with a steady 123bhp, but it almost feels like a cheaper version of an EP3 and it feels quick (until you look at the speedo)

I bought it with a faulty clutch so it had to get recovered to our HQ. Here's some pictures from when she was delivered 2 weeks ago (on 17th Feb):

The first thing that required attention was the clutch so I had a few parts fitted at the same time:

With the car running sweet the next job was to give her a thorough clean. I also found the OEM tyre wall too thin so upgraded from a set of budget 205/40/17's to a set of Uniroyal Rainsports 3s in 215/45/17. The car drives so much nicer and the tyres feel the arch better too. The Powerflex mounts have also help reduce flex on gear changes so they definitely worthwhile.
