Ignis Sport from Singapore

 A picture speak a thousand words.

Mr. Ng from Singapore recently email me via and we have a great discussion and he shared with me his cool black Ignis Sport which he keep upon renewal of COE. He did some great work on the interior which replace the original fabric seats, door rest with shinny black leather while maintaining the design and contour of the original factory styling. I do love the leather seats and door trim as it matches the colour of the car.

Black is golden. It does work with yellow too in this case.

 P/S : I do value and appreciate owner of Ignis Sport of Swift Sport (HT81S) to share with me their beloved car photo via email so I can share with everyone around the world.

HT81S review by Russian Owner and Rear Fog Lamp

With the scarcity of HT81S information available online, this had pushed me to look for alternative source of information for HT81S. This time I bump into a Russian page that provide the owner review of HT81S. Apparently this owner bought this HT81S and started to modified this car and he had pointed out one interesting item which is the rear fog lamp.
What about rear fog lamp or brake lamp at the bottom of bumper as shown in the photo above. My car are not fitted with a working lamp which mean there aren't any wiring or bulb on the reflector at the bumper. However I discover that another silver HT81S owner have a working lamp which turn on when the brake pedal are pressed.
This make me wonder why my red HT81S are not fitted one, is it an optional upgrade from the factory or certain colour of HT81S are fitted only.
This Russian owner yellow HT81S aren't fitted one so he modified one successfully. Can anyone share with me whether their car are fitted with a working rear fog lamp ? Just drop me a comments on your car type, colour and whether it is fitted or not.
Thanks in advance. Cheers

HT81S in front of ZC32S

Can you spot the HT81S in the photo ? This was a photo posted in the monster sport shop page for the new meter holder at A pillar for ZC32S. I spotted the HT81S in the photo and feel that I need to share this around. This photo most probably was taken at Monster Pro Shop and the white HT81S should be the demo car with the M18 engine inside.
Glad they still keep the car. I wish to drive it one day!

Ignis Sport for Spares

I seldom do personal recommendation on product to sell and to buy from. But this time it is different as the situation that is happening at my southern neighbour Singapore are indeed heartbreaking. The photo shows a well kept Ignis Sport that are going to be scrapped in the near future. Why ? Because of COE issued in Singapore. I won't explain in detail of COE, you can google or read from the owner page below.
I think Ignis Sport are one of the future classic car which have value to be kept, this is the due to the low number of surviving car, low cost of entry (to buy) a used and the high reliability of the car not excluding the performance it can offer compare to the currently available car.
Anyway, those interested to buy any parts from this donor car, please contact the owner as soon as possible as. For me, I am interested on the front bumper together with fog lamp and wiring and switches. I wonder whether he can sell to me cheaply. :)

I spotted some performance parts too, intake and the suspension, I think it should be a pillowball and adjustable suspension.

Interested parties please contact the owner via :-

Transplant M18 into HT81S the Russian Way

A casual browsing today bump me into this page in Russian by an owner of HT81S. He had picture out the process of him getting a M18 engine into a HT81S. Mostly the words are in Russian so I don't understand much, but with google translate we can read and understand a bit of the question and rant he have in the process. The photo are great and a good source of reading.

Some of the photo, credits to the original writer :-

HT81S Touge Battle

Just saw this video posted by Kousuke Hirata from Japan. This was shared in the Suzuki Ignis Sport Owners page in Facebook. For those who uses facebook, you can login and view this video via the link below.
The video is a bit shaky but it was taken inside a Suzuki Cervo following a HT81S on mountain road in Japan. Nice sound, just dont pay too much attention to the video as you might get very dizzy looking at it.
Great job Hirata-san, I will await more video from you.

Ignis Sport from Singapore

Saw this photo yesterday and feel it should be share to all HT81S, even though I prefer a clean car this photo speaks a lot of the main purpose of HT81S which is to be off road and for fun!
A muddy HT81S does give back the feeling of rallying off road and having fun. Kudos to this owner for showing this side of the car in an event in Singapore.
