How much do you miss HT81S in the news, and sometimes I just wish Monster Sport or Suzuki will review it again. Anyway, Monster Sport does post something short at their facebook page. It was a short view of HT81S in M18. The photo are their demo car and equip with a M18 engine in a sub-1 ton car.
They further mention that this car could last another 10 years with it current setup to compete with the current generation of sport compact car. That is such a big honor to a more than 10 years old car.
Do you feel the same to ? I do!

Impreza + Ignis Sport + Swift Sport

 
Does Ignis Sport still have the punch to play with Swift Sport and brother Impreza? This pretty much depends on the location of the playground. That's what happened on a road trip by these 3 cars to Sepang from Singapore. All 3 cars went on a road trip from Singapore into Malaysia using B-road and every car had a moment that worth sharing. I am not going to spoil the story here, so just visit the original page to read more about it.
Anyway, the photo are great and the stories too.

Top 7 Used Hatchback in UK?

I always feel that HT81S/HV81S is a under rated car and a future hidden gem. Why ? This is due to the  low entry cost for the car, low maintenance and great package given in the standard spec of the car. Something similar to Toyota AE86. I am not here to link Ignis Sport/Swift Sport directly to AE86 in terms of performance. But both are cheap to run, easy to maintain and both is simple car which is light weight with medium performance engine.
Now there are a review from UK that says that Ignis Sport being one of the top used hatchback in UK. I give it a 2 thumbs up to it and based on the list, I can safely say that Ignis Sport should be among the top 3 of that list.
Read the full review on the links below for what the author say about Ignis Sport.

Fuel price drop for RON97

This is something interesting that I would like to put my 2 cents into. Fuel price in Malaysia are somehow regulated and there are only 2 type of gasoline fuel available widely which is the RON 95 and RON 97 at the pump. Recently the government and petrol pump seller reduce the price of RON97 to RM2.55 a liter. This is a great news and I normally will celebrate by going to have a full tank in my HT81S. Now it is not the case as I seldom drive my HT81S as I have another car for daily commute. Next, this car uses only RON95 fuel so I need to pay RM2.30 for a liter of fuel.
Lets do some math now RON 95 : RM 2.30 and RON 97 : RM 2.55, difference RM 0.25 a liter.
Next, the government claimed that they are paying RM0.13 of fuel subsidy for every liter, great! What if we we eliminate the RON 95 fuel all together and put the RM0.13 subsidy to RON 97. Price of RON 97 will drop to RM 2.42, that is not much difference from RM2.30 we are paying now. The fuel is better, engine less problem, petrol station will not need to store 2 different fuel, better warehousing and this should lead to better environment as higher RON fuel should be better for combustion.
So, will someone just highlight this to the government and review the fuel type available to the public. We were used to having only RON97 many years ago and we shouldn't be going backwards by still using lower RON fuel. If the government interested, they can introduce RON100 fuel so that many modern high compression engine will benefit from this and more newer and advance engine can be imported into the country. Don't worry I won't be asking for subsidy for RON 100 fuel. I will be willing to pay the full retail amount and happy about it.

More anime on HT81S

White HT81S is the favorite choice for anime, due to the fact it does really make the character/design stand out from the car.  

Here are some picture of a HT81S during a parade/contest back in December 2014 in Japan.

 The character composition aren't much just a single character being the main focus.
 A nice photo in this angle.
 The front design could be better.
What is Lingyin Huang ?

A japanese twitter account

It is not normal for me to introduce or recommend something personal like twitter account to fellow HT81S lover. As HT81S are getting old, so are the news and updates available online. Hence I am looking more to something more personal for more news about HT81S and bump into this person from Japan twitter account. He got some pretty good picture about HT81S in his account which resulted the recommendation here.
If you have time, do look into his account below for picture of HT81S:-
