has you know my sedan gti , had a pair of custom made skirts, from gti skirts, but they were broken and gapping between the body, because they didn´t mount the side skirts rail, here you go , pics in skirts , and because of the horrible gap near the doors, i removed them.

i really like that sedan. the paint is a great color.

if it were me, i'd run the mud flaps and the fabricated side skirts modified to fill the gap at the rear door frame. i might be inclined to put together a wooden piece to fit the contours and fill the gap and epoxy it to the side skirt. then i'd apply fiberglass to weather proof the wood. use a little 3m double sided adhesive tape to hold it to the door frame.

because those sedans weren't sold in the usa that i've ever seen, i've always sort of wanted one in gt trim.

"a man wants most that which he cannot have." - confucious :D

i agree with you :D :D :D :D
the sedan should be fabricated from factory with the gti motor, like honda did on those ciciv models, same engine dif body, long or short :D :D :D :D

you will be very happy with a sedan, especcially the awd 1,6 16v, i only know about one here at Portugal , up North, from a fellow swift on the Portuguese forum

here it is a photo with the suzuki kit:

I vote for skirts, but modified in the back to make them look like the stock ones. :)
Let's say, front part GTi, rear like stock sedan skirts. Door protector strips optional. =)
And the last Swift simply ROCKS! I like it!
