Panda Bianca

I honestly thought I'd made a thread about this one but hadn't, if you know me you know I've been waiting for a Bianca to come up for sale for at least the past 3-4 years. In January one finally came up and wasn't in too bad nick! It needs some work but has an MOT and survived the 230 mile trip back from Clacton-on-sea, currently tucked up in the garage with Serge.

Re: Panda Bianca

looks like a smashing wee car, how many miles has it done?

the colour coded bumpers are brilliant.

I would love an Italia 90 partially for that reason

I don't think I've seen a Bianca that hasn't been twin sunny, has anyone else? Not that there's many left to look at now

I have an original advert for the Bianca, not sure on the date but it reads the following:
"Beneath you, Panda's comfort and ride are that which you might expect to find in a more expensive car. And above? Why, of course, A full length fabric sunroof.
Do hurry though. They're only around for summer, and you know how long that lasts."


I need to get it framed!

Re: Panda Bianca

Not much to update on this one, but currently attempting to get the DVLA to fix my V5c becuase currently there is no model at all listed!

ID:	182966

After around 6 weeks since I sent my V5c back I got a nice letter saying I'd need to contact Fiat and for them to provide proof of its model.. Well its not a no I guess!

Called Fiat and must say I was amazed at how slick they were, phone rang for no more than 5 seconds and a person actually picked up! No awful IVR to deal with! They knew exactly who I needed to speak to and put me straight through. Spoke to a chap called Simon Davenport who asked me to e-mail him a few things over to him and he'll get back to me.

Sent Simon the e-mail today so fingers crossed I get the answer I want and can get the DVLA to update their side.

Re: Panda Bianca

Wow, not even two hours later I have a reply back from Simon at Fiat with a photocopy of the signed confirmation letter he is posting out to me! This is one massive step forward to getting my panda officially recognised as a Bianca!

Re: Panda Bianca

Hell of a sight better being a Bianca than an Eastender which is a Bi-anka.
