why not, i used to have one as a daily
they are a laugh to drive, they dont like to rev, keep it in the midrange
mine had no arb`s so it was a bit of a boat around the corners Very Happy

The little 1.0's are awesome! I have 2 and bought one and broke it all for spares haha Smile

Couple of tips, although you probably already know all of it (may help someone else???)

1) Knock the stupid pre-cat out! Its abit fiddly getting the exhaust manifold out especially with the heatshield bolts (long flat headed screwdriver and hammer then jet wash straight through) Makes a big difference all the way through the rev range its such a restriction

2) Front ARB is a straight fit just need droplinks, Rear needs holes drilling in the wishbones + holes to mount it in the middle

3) There is a big recall on all swifts (1.0's) for the front dampers (can use it as a bargain tool if there retarded?)

4) If it guzzles fuel its known for the cold start valve to stick on the carb

5) The front bumper bars rust like no tomorrow (Do not know if GTi's are just as bad????) Another bargain tool??

6) They need servicing every 6k

Otherwise get it lowered with some koni's and disc conversion and they are awesome handling little dailys (even better if stripped)

Ever need any 1.0 parts let me know Smile

thanks for the advise, i'll definately be smashing out the precat, and i'll check the cold start valve, whats the technique to free them up.

Im averaging about 50mpg driving easy, thats pretty good but was expecting more like 60 as i could get 50 out of my old gti if i took it easy.

And to obviously make it lighter and a bit quicker off the mark.... in a small engine car it makes the world of difference, specially up hill

Not sure, I actually just swapped the whole carbon out if my spares

ud race other 1L or similar, the lower saxos, corsas and chavs with 500kg bodykits
i can see the point as a daily drive and id own 1 if it wasnt 4 my job

steve how much is an a3 20v turbo compared to a 1L swift lol
lets face it most people that own 1l swift do so because there cheap to drive,insure, tax, fuel, repair.

What the man said. If you can make a car go faster for free, remove pre cat and lighten it and if you more than likely own a 1.0 its because your young and insurance is a rip off! Plus everyone likes to kick a chavs ass now and again.

52 iirc

So you never had a small engine car? And still paying got knows how much the insurance company pulls your pants down.

And imo if its a country lane of course it can be fun! Not all about the acceleration

when i got my gti it only cost me an extra £100 to insure but that was before the price hike, plus i swear people dont look around properly before complaining about prices, i used to spent hours looking for the best deal.

never realised a3 20vt where that cheap with high milage tbh.

jesse im sure a gls wud be cheaper than £700 @ 22 but the only thing ur insurance wud be good for is stop getting u pulled over but soon as there is an incident involving ur gls/gti ur going to get raped if u dont declare it all. (sore subject with me soz)

1.3 is small but a 1l is even more humiliating to be beaten by. daewoo matiz ftw lol

Do you think removing the power steering belt would improve MPG? and free up some power. Im not sure how much stress it puts on the engine when driving in a straight line, if any.
