Hi All

I’ve recently bought a 2006 1.3 I bought it for a run around for work but I love it now I use it more the my Audi :) Apparently it’s a extreme edition I’ve not seen one like it around this way

Going to start to give her some tlc soon now the weather is better

Any one on here from the land of smog

Welcome to the club! Yes there is something quite enjoyable about driving a swift that resembles riding on a skateboard but warmer..... LOL
Seriously though there are lots of things you can do to give her some tlc.
One thing to bear in mind with the 1.3 versions is the gearbox, make sure that you change the oil every 20 or so thousand with synthetic oil to keep it at its best.
Other than that no much to be worried about. Older models with the bottom arm bushes, antiroll bar bushes and drop links are items to check when you get time.
Plenty of aftermarket sources for all the parts so nothing is expensive.
Have a great time and enjoy!
Running Stock aside from wind deflectors, Genuine sport mats, Pipercross Air filter, under bonnet tidy bolts & mud flaps........... for now
