How many Pandas have you seen today

Today 4 Pandattoni (Cake Fed type Mk3) and 3 others. All slim Jims (Mk2).

Record was 53 in a day on a trip from Norwich to Whitby (yorks) and back.

Re: How many Pandas have you seen today

I see 5 proper ones every day without leaving the driveway!
(Although 1 is slowly being dismantled so maybe 4.75)
Still seeing quite a few locally, although not seeing as many of the new bulgy ones.

Most seem pretty well cared for, and really don't show their age, although there's one particular 55-plate silver multijet which I have been noticing fairly regularly which seems to have some new panel damage every couple of weeks. Not sure how much longer that will be on the road... quite rare to see a complete shed of a Panda round here.

Just for information, our version is Mark 3 and the cake fed one is Mark 4. There were two other Marks prior to 2003.

I'd regularly see around half a dozen or so Pandas around where I live and there have been two or three others around the car-parks at my work.

Re: How many Pandas have you seen today

I see my pair of Pandas when I leave the house daily, and a few other Mark3 and Mark4's when I'm out and driving about. Plus my neighbour has acquired a nice yellow Mark3 Dynamic.

I also regularly see an identical Cross to mine in Bexley, usually parked up.

Re: How many Pandas have you seen today

Three - my dark blue, ten-years old Panda, one dark red Panda (I think that it was produced after 2007 because it has red logo) and one white Panda (produced probably earlier than 2007).

I can say one - not buy white Panda if you live in rural areas where there are dirt. It just doesn't look as good as dark blue (from time to time some people ask me if this Panda is new ) or dark red during early spring.

Lol I managed to do that a few years back and remember happily singing 'Convoy' to myself.

Re: How many Pandas have you seen today

Had to break in to our Micra today as it locked ots self and we only have 1 key (200 from Nissan.....) So before long I'm going to be able to count 2 each day! AT least the new glass was only 20. Why do these things happen, and why when the engines running and the lights are on!

I like this, I now know that I am 'proper' or may be even better as I pre-date the first Panda. The only draw back I can see to the older versions may be the crash protection. I'm glad I have never tried this on my cars........ yet.

Oi! Who are you calling 'bulgy'?

It's easy to be wise after the event, and the cost of obtaining replacements makes many folks think twice about getting one if they only have a single key.

Locking the key in the car, (and, these days, having the car decide to lock itself with the key inside it) are both easy mistakes to make. Just saying to yourself that you only have one key and must never lose it doesn't always work.

What I'd suggest to those who can't or don't want to pay the full cost of a second key is that they get a replacement key blank cut cheaply at any of the usual outlets; this should only cost a few pounds. It won't disable the immobiliser and you won't be able to start the car with it, but it will unlock the door, giving you a way in if the keys are inadvertently locked in the vehicle.
