Has anyone actually bought a beige panda?

I think the "Caffe Latte" beige is ok, but the "Cappuccino" beige is not.

Question Re: Cross 0.9 TwinAir 90hp

Hi - I've recently bought a 2015 twinair 0.9 cross (and loving it ). But there is a short 'lumpy' section to its revs immediately from idling. Idle is steady (at just under 1000 revs) and driving all through the gears is smooth. Its just at the initial increase in revs whilst stationary - almost feels as if it could stall, although it doesn't.
Please could anyone with similar car tell me if this normal for the twinair? Or maybe I should take it back to the dealer??

It is kind of normal - I have a 4x4 TA and you do need to get the revs above that critical point to have any torque available - particularly noticeable uphill in reverse for some reason.
Thanks caty thanked for this post

Re: Cross 0.9 TwinAir 90hp

May not be exact same curve for the Panda, but this is an interesting graph of TwinAir torque and power delivery... http://www.automobile-catalog.com/cu..._turbo_85.html


(and, just for comparison, for the MJ too: http://www.automobile-catalog.com/cu...6v_95_4x4.html )

Re: Cross 0.9 TwinAir 90hp

Hi, I have a 500 twinair and mine does the same. Mine has had a health check by independent garage and they have advised it's perfectly normal for these engines.

There's lots of info on these forums about the Privilege scheme. You can qualify for it by occupation (eg the police) or membership of, eg, the Institute of Advanced Motorists and sundry other organisations. The deal I got on my Cross 3 years ago was epic - over 3k discount and 0% interest - but the deals can vary significantly from quarter to quarter.
