Default Thanks

@FountainHeader,

Thanks. BTW, I also asked the Khivraj dealer if the 1.3 L would be replaced by the new 1.2L that would get into Ritz/Splash. He did not have any answer. Quite some posts here speculating.

Will PM you.

Thanks for the pics FH.

Mahesh has OEM spoiler & I feel the gap between the roof and the spoiler is more with OEM ones. That is the precise reason I am looking for replacing the existing spoiler in my car which is a replica. Also it has developed undulation on the surface. Hence looking for a replacement. Thank u for uploading the pics

Mod freaks: Here too I feel there is a difference in gap, by any chance is that difference due to angle of the photo or fitment can be adjusted or its because the OEM & Replica diff

Yup. I saw theMAG's Swift. And dint really like the OEM Spoiler. Because of too much gap.

One of the main reasons I went for a spoiler was to somewhat straighten the overall structure of the roof. There is a slight fitment issue with the spoiler. The right side is protruding out more than the left. Installer did it in a hurry since he was leaving for lunch and I was leaving for Chennai

2themax,
Yes you can check it out

Car's back after 2nd scheduled service. Got it done at 4450 because I am again driving down to Bangalore this weekend. Should get the Green Cotton Wind installed there

Here's another snap of the Swift, somewhere outside Pondicherry.

Your car sure looks good Fountainheader !!

Tell me something, how accurate is the climate control in terms of temperature ?? My A4's cliamate control is near perfect in terms of temperature it displays vs what it maintains. On the Swift however, I do think there is a fair discrepency.

What's your experiance ??



Thanks

Hi Ricky,
To tell you frankly, I expected the ACC to set the temperature according to the surroundings. Then I realised its just a 5L car to boast of such stuff. lol

The Swift AC is near perfect and cools the car pretty quickly (aided by dark tints of course). But regarding the temperature, I can't comment as much because I haven't used another ACC car to compare.

M124,
How much do those Sparco mudflaps cost ?

I was about the post the same thing Sushil. Forgot about it.

I guess the one on theMAG's Swift is a old gen OEM spoiler.

Default Spare Tyre on Swift ZXI March09

Need Help, does the spare tyre on ZXI come with the center logo of Suzuki?

I remember seeing this on the spare tyres, today we had given the vehicle for the 1st schedule services and it is missing from the tyre after it is delivered back from the service station.
