Panda Bianco the 100HP 🤍

This is my newly acquired project; Bianco the 2008 Panda 100HP!

Latest updates

Bianco has now got a fresh set of suspension all round!

Once again I took him to Fettle and Finesse in Leicestershire. Laurence cares so much about these little Panda's and it shows not only in his work, but also his work ethic!

Bianco had a full set of Bilstein B4 shocks fitted, along with new top mounts and droplinks. Also new bump stops on the rear.

The poor old Koni's he was previously on had definitely seen better days! 🙈 See the photo of the damaged one below... 🫣

After an alignment and a couple of new tyres to get a matching set, he now drives spot on, how a 100HP should drive! 😍

Just realised I'd forgotten to update this thread!

Bianco got a new standard exhaust system from the manifold back fitted in the middle of September. What a difference it makes! I feel like I can actually use him now without feeling either embarrassed by the sound or attracting 17 year old boy racers in pop and bang mobiles at the traffic lights 😂

The exhaust was fitted by Fettle and Finesse in Leicester, an absolutely lovely guy who clearly has a massive love for Panda 100HP's. He spent so much time fettling and finessing (lives up well to his company name!) the car so everything was perfect. I'd recommend him to anyone who wants the job done right.

Next on the list is a full suspension refresh. I've managed to source a super cheap set of Bilstein B4's through work, result! With some nice new top mounts and droplinks (the springs are near enough new already) he'll be good as new. Exciting times! 😁

Just got back from MITCAR in Bianco and loved every minute of it. Was brilliant to talk to like-minded people. It was breath of fresh air from the usual classic car show snobbery.

Good news! Bianco passed his MOT 🥳

A few advisories to sort (one of which is front brake pads being low but they've got loads of meat on them, so god knows what the guy was looking at 😂) but we'll get there. Made alot easier by the fact I can actually drive him to work now to get him on a ramp 👌🏼

Can't get the grin off my face whenever I drive him, such a good laugh!
