Re: What did you do with your Panda today?

@Phils panda what are you driving instead? When daughter got 2 years NCB she could be paying about same as me (around £300).

My first car had classic insurance which saved about £700 compared to normal car. Said insurer today is a fortune, thankfully left over decade ago.

(What I did on Monday)
Having spent the week on the beach in Barcelona it was time to head home and again crossed the Pyrenees via Andorra.

I took my own advice and arrived in Andorra with an empty tank but was in panic mode for the last four miles because no segments were illuminated on the fuel gauge.
Stopped at the first of the many garages and got 33.50 ltrs @ €1.19 compared to €1.35 in Spain and €1.51 - €1.65 in rural France.

I thought the Panda might have been a bit small for this trip and nearly bought a new Berlingo demonstrator however the Panda has been great, especially in the mountains and having driven up and down a few, around countless hairpin bends and some extreme hills starts I would like to become the founder member of the 4X4 first gear appreciation society.

I've had my 4X4 two years and have only seen two other 4X4's. It was strange to see hundreds of them over two days.

Brittany Ferries very kindly cancelled my ferry from Santander so now on a 700 mile detour to Cherbourg.

I’m getting this error too using both the mobile site and the desktop site.

Dying to show off my new Panda too!

The app has also disappeared from the iOS App Store which is a mystery to me ... hmm
