Black panda twinair 85 Lounge

Hi
This is my new Panda I got last week. I'm very happy with the car although it's a bit thirsty on the motorways :-) the turbo is really something that adds a lot of fun to the driving experience. The car was a demo with 4000km on the counter, so I guess the engine should be run in by now. My avarage is about 35 - 42mpg depending how heavy my foot is :-)

Hope you like the colour of my Panda
Cheers

I'd almost be tempted to get the red mirror covers and hubcaps, to go with that colour scheme....

In the UK -- according to the awful FIAT website -- 31.32 for a set of hub caps (but you may need the 'posh' alloy wheels, first -- as I don't know if they fit on the standard alloys... -- at 172.26 each...!); and 52.20 for a pair of mirror covers. I also thought you could get colour-coded roof rails: but can't find these, now -- although they may only have been available at time of ordering....

Hope this helps....

PS: Just found the red "longitudinal roof rails". They're 146.16. (Don't know if any of these prices include VAT; and the rails will probably be a pain to fit....)

My eyesight obviously isn't what it used to be.... I looked at your piccies: but couldn't quite tell...!

PS: With 50-50 hindsight, can now see them on that last image!

PPS: Not tempted by the red roof-rails, then, to replace the stock ones...?

Re: Black panda twinair 85 Lounge

I am surprised you did not receive steering wheel controls and USB port with lounge trim.

REALLY nice,
the dash is A LOT of RED , but goes with the scheme well,

I've only done 1000 miles on my twinair - and it IS lively on the Turbo,
I'm told the engine will not really free off until 7,000 miles / 10,000 KM,
Charlie

Almost all the demo lounges that were on sale in Denmark at the time I bought mine came without the steering wheel control and USB. My arms are long enough to reach the radio, so it's not a big problem :-) USB would have been nice though.

Best score full tank 16KML / 37MPG
Best score short trip 20KML / 47MPG

Yes, here in the UK the Lounge model does not have Blue&Me/USB port as standard either. I think the specifications do differ from country to country.

For me personally, I think this is a big mistake as the Lounge is the top-of-the-range car; it should have better levels of standard equipment.
