Hi and welcome, I only just did my intro the other day, new here too. Search "swift gti" on ebay (car parts, used) there is inlet, injectors and throttle all listed seperatly, better to get a complete one tho. To post a pic u need to upload it to an image hosting site then link to it. I used photobucket and they give u a 'link code' for each pic which comes with tags, eg: (img)www.yourpic...(/img) BUT WITH SQUARE BRACKETS. paste that into your post. Alright

All in all the car has cost me about £4000 so far £2500 buying it and the rest fixing it and it still not road worthy Sad. I have a gls to that's I'm Iain at the min. I not to keen on the interia colour I would have preferred black but still.

Stevegti2 do u have the full assembly and which side do u have ? I need offside but would like a pair incase the other side snaps to. An how much would u want?

Anyone any idea where could get a donar engine? I am not particle flash with cash at the min so... Any ideas ? Thanks

Like the bit that bolts onto the lower arm, trackrod end and the bottom of the semistrut. Sorry even tho I'm a mechinic I'm a beginner lol and not to cleaver when it comes to what u would call it. And how are the bearings in them ? I have 2 new ones anyway but I could save them for spares. Thanks Cam

oo right well the hub is one piece unless you press it apart bearings are fine in them swift bearings dont go that often due to them being so light i have a selection of hubs plenty in stock £25 each
