Panda 4x4 Cross

Just joined this forum.

Here's my Panda doing what it does best :





It's a 2008 which I've owned since 2009 and had it chipped so it makes about 100hp but still returns about 55mpg on average !!

Re: Panda 4x4 Cross

Nice snow shots.

There are many folsk on here that would like a Cross - most of us are hoping that Spring and the Mk4 4x4 will bring the prices down a bit.

On the subject of chipping - there are worries in the 'clutch' department. What's your personal experience and mileage?

No problems with chipping.

I looked into it and its fine as long as you don't cane it in every gear,which i don't.

There is so much more torque over standard,I get about 5% better fuel economy and it goes like stink even short shifting-makes about 100 bhp uo from 75 !!

Done by Angel Tuning and cost £210 !!!

I've done about 15000 miles in last 2 years since it was chipped and clutch is fine.

I've had many 4x4s including Mercs,many LRs etc and the Cross is the best by far in the snow-I've never managed to get it stuck.Two years ago I drove down what was basically a blocked lane and it still made it.

Just amazing really
