Re: New Panda Cross

A couple more pics today. The last one is the yellow I would have preferred! There is a Fiat 500 in more or less this colour

Just got mine on Friday, loving it. I was a bit concerned about the throaty noise like a leaky exhaust on acceleration but believe this is normal.

Yes, it is 'idiosyncratic', you might say!

Yellows rule in Norwich (in more ways than one )

I've been asked several times by passengers, "Is it supposed to make that funny noise?"

My wife was (typically) less complimentary: "What's with all that din when you accelerate?"

Re: New Panda Cross

First proper trip this weekend, a quick hit-and-run to the Brecon Beacons. And I saw another Panda Cross! A white one, probably somewhere near Stow-on-the-Wold.

P.S. No, I did not drive it up there. But I did get to drive it on lots of mud, lots of leaves and even some slushy snow this morning!

Re: New Panda Cross

Hoping for some snow up the Beacons so I can finally get my Cross out in the white stuff after almost 2 years of ownership. It's a 15 min drive to the Rhigos, Black or Bwlch mountains.

We live less than a mile from the sea so temperatures are warmer here.

Re: New Panda Cross

I wonder, would a 56NORD fit on the Panda.

I don't see why not, although I went with a more utalitarian approach and chose an uprack to be able to mount auxilliary lighting. I would like to continue in this direction, has anybody seen a lift kit and winch bumper kit for the Cross?

I don't know of a "kit" per se, but Prometeo Meccanica make a set of lifting spacers, along with some hub centric spacers to fix the track width. Eibach camber bolts can be used to correct the camber resulting from the overextension of the front Mcpherson struts. I also know there's a Warn winch that fits into the 4x4 bumper with a mounting kit (I think it was Taubenreuther that made the winch kit), which might work for the Cross as well.

Re: New Panda Cross

Finally, exactly 100 days after collecting my car, I got the floor mats I was promised (and promised, and promised). (Now I want to take them out again to stop them getting dirty )

Re: New Panda Cross

Mine originally had the wrong ones supplied. They were emblazoned 4x4 but the fixing holes didn't align with the nipples and the drivers one slipped about. Perrys replaced them with the same ones you have, just marked Panda, and all is well.

These are technically the wrong ones as they have the old logo on them. The catalogue shows a 2015 one with the new 'space-age' logo. Never mind, these are the right size and shape and the fittings line up. I'm just glad to have them at last!
