Not quite the 33 replacement (that will be a Saab 9-5 estate) but we are now the proud owners of an '04 Panda Eleganza and it's a smashing little car to drive. Performance is OK if you rev it and the ride and handling a great. Body condition for a ten year old car is superb.

Alex, the car has satin black metal roof bars. If they were plastic I'd use Autoglym snot on them but what is the best thing for a satin black painted finish on metal?

Cheers

J.

My brother has a 1 litre 2009 Panda in his fleet which he seems to drive a lot more often than his 155 v6 or Mito Clover- he loves it.

I'd try baby wet wipes on the bars Jeremy- brilliant on interior plastics too.

Sorry J I missed this post. Actually wet wipes are amazing (Lorraine does her entire interior with them), also there is a small white sponge that Auto Glym make which is just a little bit abrasive, they are called "magic sponges" they work well too & are something like £12 for a pack of 10. Just get 1 slightly damp & wipe away.

You've been here,
you've met her,
And you came back for more (coffee).
Very Happy
