Panda gone, some bits up for grabs

Hi, well I have traded in the Panda for a Citroen C4 Cactus which I'm very happy with.

But I have a couple of bits I no longer need for the current shape Panda...

I bought a space saver spare wheel and jack kit from a Punto Mk2 as these are compatible with the Panda. In good condition, looking for 25.

Also have a decals set of stripes that I bought for the Panda but never fitted.

Stickers I bought but never used by Robert, on Flickr[/IMG]

Looking for 25 also.

I am located in Bedford.

This is the info on the Mk2 Punto spare wheel, I've not tried it myself, but others on the forum have. It's the same size and stud pattern and way cheaper than a new one from Fiat! Fits nicely in the spare wheel well too.

Re: Panda gone, some bits up for grabs

A bit off topic, but how's the Cactus doing? Photos? Impressions? I had quite liked it but wanted to be able to drive through a muddy field. Still, loved the drive and the dash.

Re: Panda gone, some bits up for grabs

I'd like to know about the cactus too please.

I'm just booking collection of my Leaf and quite like the look of the cactus.
You can rent them for cheap on contract hire.

Re: Panda gone, some bits up for grabs

I really like the Cactus! I've wanted one for ages! I love the styling and the dash, it's got cruise control and a digital radio with a USB port for my music. I chose the blue colour too. It drives much better than the Panda and I'm so glad I made the change. I did like lots of things about the Panda, but I didn't enjoy driving it very much. It was a good little car, but I' much happier with what I drive now!

Re: Panda gone, some bits up for grabs

Goodbye Panda, Hello Citroen! If anyone is looking for a well cared for low mileage 65 plate Panda, mine should be on sale soon at Palmers Fiat in Watford or Hemel Hempstead, I traded it in at Palmers Citroen dealership, but it will be sold through their Fiat branch.

That looks fantastic, excellent color and wheel combo.

Pity they don't do a 4x4 Cactus.

Love that colour - great choice!

Thanks! I'm really enjoying the car, and I think it stands out from the crowd in the funky colour. I does turn heads!

Thanks, actually, there is a 4x4 Cactus on the way. It looks very cool and comes with chunky tires.

Re: Panda gone, some bits up for grabs

Ooh, that's nice! I remember reading, when they first came out, that they hadn't been designed to take a 4x4 transmission, and that the lightweight body construction and running gear weren't suitable for it either. Sounds like they've had second thoughts. Many thanks for posting!

Edit: just checked on t'internet, and it's not a 4x4
Thanks triumph7 thanked for this post
