I havent got a pic of it, but I regularly see a suzuki swift which it looks like the owner is desperately trying to turn into a mini. It makes me laugh every time I see it, with its bonnet stripes, and roof graphics etc.

The Fiesta ST's have vipers, but then I guess they were stolen from, well, Dodge Vipers!

I saw with horror a Suzuki Swift in Chili Red, with bonnet stripes and WORST OF ALL a set of matt black plastic wheel arch extensions, sills and bumper lowers Haven't these people got an original idea in their heads?!

I've just been to the Suzuki website and found that this is a 999 "GT body styling kit" option pack!

Suzuki have been highly original before, their Katana motorcycle was ground breaking in the 1980's (even if they had to pay Target Design to design it for them ), so why become so unimaginative now?

Tigger.

I think suzuki swifts are pretty cool, Mini's look great that's why people want their cars to look like them..

The theory is that the air-co doesn't have to work as hard to keep the interior cool on hot sunny days. I'm not sure exactly how much you'd save though...

Here's a good one, how about a Toyota Yaris (don't know if you lot get that one in the UK) with Union Jack mirror caps and a set of bonnet stripes. Saw it with my own eyes. Please....
