Talking Fiat Panda FAQ (ongoing)

This is a small faq i put together using old posts from some forums.
Please read the bottom before flaming, if you want credit for something you said that is posted on there say so (try to show a link to the original post so i can get all the names). I'm still far from completing it and if anyone wants to help they're free to do so.

Please say if anything should be changed or added or even removed!!

thanx for this great forum

Re: Fiat Panda FAQ (ongoing)

No flames.

But if you don't get either a "sticky" at the top of this section, or a mention on this site FAQ, a visitor in a few weeks will never find it, as most can't find the existing answers in old posts.

Regarding the FAQ itself, I don't pretend to know all the answers, but there are a few errors that I can see:

in the "What wheel sizes will fit my Panda?" section on 13" rims, 155 by 70 isn't a standard size, but 145 by 70 is a standard fitting on 4x4s.

in my "Better brakes" section the price of the Bosch pads was UKP 9.99, not 39.99
(The UKP sign is shifted 3 on a UK mapped keyboard.)

and in Pauls "Lights won't flash" the price of the switch assembly was UKP 57.48, not 357.48 for the same reason.

Re: Fiat Panda FAQ (ongoing)

I'm making the changes now (to the errors), on my keyboard it's a shifted 3 as well but the language on my pc is set to english standard so it ignores it .

Thanx for pointing that out

As for no one finding it, that will be up to the moderators to make it a sticky or whatever, my site will be up at all times now (i hope). I also have a Performance FAQ in the making that will only cover performance mods (no ricer stuff).
