Re: What did you do with your Panda today?

Yes its a bit of an odd ball. Identical in a lot of ways to the Sirion, but with just enough differences for most bits not to be compatible.... Generally its inoffensive, and drives well with particularly good torque from very low rpm. there is actually 1 new one on ebay at £6995 which must be the bargain of the year for anyone just wanting cheap reliable transport

Re: What did you do with your Panda today?

I am told its a toyota unit, but possibly not one used by them in the UK. No timing belts with it anyway, so that's a plus. The brakes amuse me as the front pads are so small. They do however stop the car well and don't fade in normal use. I don't think it would be my choice of car, but the price must be a big draw. Its coming up 7 years old and has been almost 100% reliable though. I can see why people choose them. In the end it has to be Panda's on the top! I wouldn't swap.

I didn't remember that one, so I google searched Tricky Licky, and found a rather exotic American glamour model of that name*, so (with apologies to Bob Hope), Thanks for the Mammary.

Been decorating today so the Panda has had no attention.
Hopefully tomorrow I'll get the bucket and microfiber mitt out, and give it a wash.
