I've been trying to track down some hot4s magazines featuring our swifts. they're one of the only magazines that seems to feature our cars on a semi-regular basis. i think there's probably a few members on here w/ cars that could @ least be shown in their readers galleries, more coverage of the swifts & us = more companies how might consider aftermarket parts =)<br><br>>><br>We'll check out your site if you check out ours! <br>www.hot4s.com<br><br>or the chat forum<br>www.hot4s.com/forum<br><br>for international subscriptions, email:<br>subs@expresspublications.com.au<br><br>Finally, if you guys have fully modded Swifts etc that may be 'featurable', if they check out then we'd be delighted to feature some Canadian cars and stuff, or put you in our Club Feature section. Let me know how you go.<br><br>Fabian<br><< <p></p><i></i>

Hot 4's and Fast Fours both have articles about Swift's on a semi regular basis.<br><br>Ive tracked all of the articles to date down except maybe 2?? I think I have about 25 different articles in total at the moment. <p>-bzchi<br><br>www.redlinegti.com</p><i></i>

i got a heap of hot4's mags .. i used to love the mag and bought it religously, but then i stopped cuz it became a shit mag and the editors and many of the staff changed and there reviews are all biased to companys cuz they feed em money and its slowly startin to be a porno, so i swapped from them to Zoom, much respect to julian edgar and the team on that mag, they deserve much more praise then the shit bricks at hot4's .. just my rant the automotive industry has become all about making money and the shit they have in those mags is all bullshit and commercialised, and run by major companies that wanna sell there shit even if it dont work and have crap products, one being craig david water pumps there fuked !.. FUK EM ALL !!<br><br>sorry about that <p></p><i></i>

There is no hot4's issue with all swifts. Some of the earlier magazines have up to 3 GTi's in them when the GTi was in its prime over here. <p>-bzchi<br><br>www.redlinegti.com</p><i></i>

Martin Donnon is now editor for Zoom and does a far better job than Julian Edgar. He doesn't pretend to be a race driver, for one, and knows the correct answer to far more tech issues. <br><br>I remember Edgar posting times about how quick his Turbo Liberty was....when track times for some GTi's came out on the circuit he mentioned it was interesting to note they were quicker than his awd turbocar. He also managed to bend a Skyline GT-R quite well and promoted unsafe driving on public roads quite a number of times.<br><br>Hot4's never did an all Swift issue and neither did Fast Fours - I have issues dating back to 1990 or so. <p></p><i></i>
