    Ah well, that sucks, they snap necks here like crazy, I've seen people openly gape, turn around, and even spotted a few people stop and walk around my car when it's parked. Going to gas station generally means playing the 100 question game by random people also at the station.

    I used to get that with the Suzuki Cappuccino, rare cars are great fun to own :) I think the best I get nowadays is "is that a Celica?":duh:

    Oct 2001, but it's only the 4 pot 2 litre.

    Funny thing is I bought this car whilst trying to find a 200sx in reasonably mint condition.

    Thats a beauty, but it does deserve a nice looking exhaust. What size is the engine?

    now that was a proper hairdressers car!
    i seem to remember they had to stop selling them in the uk because they didnt meet safety standards or something along those lines...

    Hairdresser's car? Certainly had the image, but it's a shame, they're cracking little cars. Exploitable chassis, engine that loves being thrashed to high heaven, fantastic burbley exhaust note, tuneable and more practical than any other car I've been in that's anywhere near as fun.

    Edit: Oh, and they only ever imported 1110 to the UK, didn't stop selling it here for any reason other than them selling them all. They didn't import any more because the car was revised with a new engine and various other bits and it wasn't worth
    Suzuki getting UK type approval.

    Can't imagine they're terribly safe though ;)

    They are tiny, and against a Range Rover I wouldn't like to see the result, but damn, they're a nice car tbh mate.

    Thanks :) Its a GT2, so has the 1.8 engine with a carburettor.

    I totally agree about the exhaust, the previous owner said he used the rubber hangers from an escort when he replaced the exhaust which is why it hangs so low! I keep meaning to replace them with the correct ones but I'm pretty lazy :D

    in Canada you wouldn't be able to tell the color of the car anymore. It's amazing how well cars age when they don't have to live through insane winters (salt)

    Here you can see cars over 2003/4 that have rust, it's pretty ridiculous

    You should get a nice twin exit to match the cut in the bumper.

    trouble is exhausts are expensive for them since they only share exhaust parts with the mk1 golf cabriolet, and to be honest I want to spend as little money as possible on her until I get something faster in the spring :D

    it has taken me to and around the nurburgring though, can't say fairer than that for a £400 car!
