Smile Hello There - Panda Eleganza 05 Plate

Thought I would just post to say hello to everyone on the forum. Purchased an 05 plate 1.2 Panda Eleganza a couple of days ago, and have to say so far am very pleased indeed.

Drives really well, both around town and on the motorway, is pretty economical (getting over 45 mpg around town with careful driving), and is a huge improvement on the 14 year old Ibiza I owned previously.

Looking forward to being involved in the forum from here on in. So without further ado - anyone able to recommend a good independent Fiat garage within the Edinburgh area, that I can use when I need to get the wee Panda MOT-ed and serviced?

The official Fiat dealer in the area is Arnold Clark, and given the truly awful experience I had with them previously with my Ibiza, I'm not that keen on using them for my Fiat.

Cheers!
Chris

Re: Hello There - Panda Eleganza 05 Plate

Hi Chris, glad you are pleased with the new car and I am sure you will get lots of recommendations for an Indie Fiat garage as we do have a lot of members north of the border. That is a great MPG average, I would think that the polar bears and your bank manager are really happy, lol.

Just post in the Panda forum and all should be revealed.

Hi guys, and many thanks for the welcome to the forum.

Have taken the advice about putting a wee post on the Garages section of the forum, so hopefully will get some helpful responses soon.

Cheers!
Chris
