I quite like the boot tray thingy.. is about 23 or so from the dealer.

Stops muck getting on the boot carpet and also helps stop things sliding around.

Fiat accessory-wise, I've got the Panda mats, the Panda sunblinds and the little storage net for under the parcel shelf.

I got seat covers made for my Panda. I also fitted an i-pod adaptor and a Parrot car kit which thankfully has worked with all my phones.

I bought a cheap door-mat (7) and it does just as well.

Have you got a picture of the 'boot tidy'??

Always wanted one for my Honda but they go for stupid money on ebay!!!

Can you get wind deflectors as I have no air-con?

I think you can see a pic of it on the fiat website under panda then accessories, there is a decent picture of it there.

No idea about wind deflectors, not that i know of. You bought a panda without aircon?

I thought I could survive without it up here in northern England.

All heating from my Honda has been removed, and I can handle that, but I do most of my miles in the panda and I get exhausted TBH!!!

Yes. Stuartl has them on his 4x4 Panda.

Who needs aircon? I don't - I live in Belfast and I think I can cope without it for the two odd weeks that it's warm... Lol

I live just south of Manchester and work in Manchester and i've used the aircon a fair bit already. Remember it doesn't need to be very hot outside before the car gets hot inside. You only need a bit of sun and it soon becomes like a sauna.

Had mine on all afternoon today.

Having had aircon on previous cars there is no way i'd buy any car without aircon. All three of our cars have it.

Get an ashtray, even if you don't smoke, or else the door pockets become littered with toffee wappers etc. Fiat charge about a tenner.

I'm in Northern Ireland... Got them made in a place in Newry. Had to leave the car with them for the day while they worked up a pattern for them and made them up. Was great in that you could choose whatever material / colour you wanted... Although it would be a long way to come for some seat covers - Lol

I bought a Cannon boot mat from Halfords 10 years ago and transfer it into whatever car I am currently using.
