Re: Panda 85 Lounge, Grigio Argento (Metallizzato)

Also bough new rear bump-stops and modified them for the 35mm lowering springs.

Re: Panda 85 Lounge, Grigio Argento (Metallizzato)

I think my anthracite 16" wheels will look great with the silver metallic.
Colour photoshopped the standard 15" wheels and lowered the car.

Yes. I think those darker wheels will suit the car better than the lighter alloys. Does lowering the car make the ride much firmer? What's the cornering like compared to the standard car?

"Not" much firmer, just a bit, but more progressive in corners.
I can really feel the difference compare to my previous Novitec lowered Panda.
Today the Panda got the winter Barchetta's on and this coming Wednesday it will be Novitec lowered again, also it will be aligned to finish it off.

Why didn't you go with the really short bump stops this time?

Something went wrong with the ordering, and i did not want the hassle of sending them back and wait for the short ones, so i modified them instead.
@ the end it will have more or less the same result, they are now about 8.5 cm long instead of the original 10.5 cm, so 2 cm more travel space then before.

OK, with those wheels and that stance, that's the best looking Panda I've seen for ages. Well done that man

I like the wheels, but think they'd look better in a darker colour

I still think they'd look better on the Barchetta they came off. Just putting in a word for an endangered species.

Most Barchetta owners have dropped those wheel for something else.
I believe they also have been used on the Punto.
