Re: What did you do with your Panda today?

Re: What did you do with your Panda today?

Stopped in a gas station to check the tyre pressures, tried to restart the engine....nothing. Got the car jumpstarted and took it home. Battery check revealed 0 volts. I guess it died of heart failure on the spot.
A trip to the car parts suppliers and a new battery for 40€ got it running perfectly again! I was just glad I was close to home.

Had an intermittent engine water loss. Turned out to be the bottom hose single use pipe clip. Cut it off and fitted a re-usable one.

I actually like that. I think those wheels are cool on any car . How about 16" Bravo wheels I have diamond cut black ones that might look good on a Panda. 17 is probably too big for the arch really.

Re: What did you do with your Panda today?

Panettone has his new number plates fitted - provides one for the trailer. Slogan reads "Panettone cake fed Panda".

He had a good clean up and under body wash prior to his run to Manchester in the morning laden with building stuff and a trailer of scaffolding and ladder on the roof rack for my daughters new house. He and I have a bit of a job on!

The words you bet your arse they should spring to mind. I do now have the replacement wheel centre for my Bravo. I thought that might have been a nightmare but they got it right first time and it was not VOR so a weeks wait was OK especially as it was in hifing from the snow.

I agree with you. It really isnt good enough. They dont dseserve repeat business if they cant be bothered to look after their customers.

Re: What did you do with your Panda today?

Received and fitted new custom car mats from The Carmat Company. Perfect fit in my 2014 1.2 Lounge Panda, and the red edging complements the outside of the car. Came with fixtures to fit the drivers side to the floor; bit difficult getting the plastic screw fixing in to the original carpet, but nothing a bradawl didn't fix by way of a starter hole.

Re: What did you do with your Panda today?

a 7.5Jx18" ET35 Bravo wheel is inbound.
The plan is to use a 205/35R18" tire.
