New panda arrives

Picked it up today. Lush sweet candy beige colour with lots of extras.

The tomtom is awesome - really useful with the road speed limits showing

Re: New panda arrives

Nice colour! Was the matching interior intentional, or a happy accident?

Intentional .

Not sure it was a good idea with a 10 year old but time will tell!

Re: New panda arrives

The cloth seats are quite easy to clean. The lighter colors are definitely great looking and make the cabin feel airy.

Re: New panda arrives

Maybe it's a good idea to prep the seats with somekind of spray so stains don't go deep into the fabric.

Re: New panda arrives

Or sit the kid on a blanket when he eats chocolate

He's been spoiled by me having leather seats up to now but I am seriously considering banning chocolate in the car!

Re: New panda arrives

Lovely car - a great choice in paint and interior. Certainly a car you can be proud of and I'm sure you'll have some memorable trips in it!

Re: New panda arrives

The chocolate ban sounds like a good idea! Watch out for new/unwashed denims - my teenage child nearly ruined the passenger seat in my old DS3 (which had lovely yellow alcantara seats) with a new pair of 501s. We used every available cleaning product, but we never quite managed to get rid of the blue tinge that resulted from just one sweaty-Levi-bottomed journey.

Re: New panda arrives

Ahh, blue denim on silver alcantara, as I had on the Supersport option seats fitted to my last Audi (S4). It soon became obvious and I then had to scrub both drivers and passenger seats to get the colour off and to make them both look the same. Rears looked very different from the fronts after that, but at least it wasn't quite so obvious.

And all my cars have had a full eating ban since time began..... Can't stand a messy interior...

Yeah I hate this too but with the old car and leather seats I got a bit complacent. Just glad he's past the puking age - I thanked my lucky stars for leather seats that time!
