A friend of ours bought a new Ignis Sport from a dealer for what he (and I) thought was a bargain £7995.
His circumstances have changed and he is looking to sell, barely 4 months later and with 2000 miles covered.

His dealer has offered him a derisory £4350 and the best part-ex. he has been offered against a Focus was £4850.

I cannot understand for the life of me why this great little car is so unpopular with the public at large.
As a second car it does us a treat.

Yeah, pretty much realised resale values terrible.
Looks like me and the Ignis will be together for a while then.
Is that such a bad thing? :unsure:

This thing is rapid and well equipped. It is staying with us.
The lighter wheels and the 10bhp or so extra helps it handle and go noticeably better than standard. Revs out better, too.

I agree they don't seem to be very popular - when I bought mine, I asked my local dealer if they were a good seller and he replied "no not really - Suzuki aren't really known for making hot hatches" - in other words he implied Suzuki were not fashionable for the average boy or girl racer ! Still, their loss is our gain, I say ! I'm afraid some people automatically think of Suzukis as cars for pensioners ! Because mine is red, a twit at work insists on referring to it as a Postman Pat car !

It only has lighter alloys and lower-profile tyres, an induction kit and a less-restrictive exhaust. A friend altered the fuelling to suit and he estimates another 15bhp.
The lighter wheels, with stickier and lower rubber, has helped the handling quite a bit.

Same here- I'm banking on the kids learning to drive in it (age 1, 4 and 11)

As for the dude in work, ;) just be sure that you give him a lift home one day, and be sure to take pictures after he soils himself! - Oh yes, at least Postman Pat got himself some pussy.

They say what goes around comes around and the guy at work came well unstuck last week - he took his "old mans style Rover" in for a service and the courtesy car they gave him for the day was an IGNIS (non-Sport) ! He was well gutted !

Yeah you don't see many Ignis' around, but who cares! Mine's the only one in the works car park, but apart from a Subaru, I wouldn't swap it!
I want to get my hands on a chrome bull bar I've seen on an Ignis in the local supermarket, but I can't finf them anywhere. Any ideas?

Check out suzuki.co.uk and look under the parts catalogue...you'll find it there, but it won't fit...as the front bumper on the standard Ignis is different....good luck anyhows.. :)
