A seat arosa is a good suggestion EMM well done thumbsup and they are very underestimated also if your interested i can still get you a brand new one with delivery millage The seis are good yes but only the sporting when standard IMO the S&SX body roll too much standard the seats arent supportive theres no nice engine note fuel ecconomy is good but not amazing theyre a good car but there is cars out

car IMO and is surprisingly quick i dont understand the dull and lifeless statement Thats the thing about opinions everyone has one. I found the steering slightly heavy not enough of the road surface was getting transmitted through the steering wheel and it lacked character inside. It also found the engine a bit gutless for the spec and the gearchange sloppy. A previously owned ( in the fleet ) seat
what about a vw lupo or a seat arosa I driven the lupo and it is a quirky little car the interiors a little boring but it drives well. the arosa is the same car just with a different badge. It shouldnt depreciate too badly either. Suzuki Wagon R is a very odd looking motor.. Otherwise nothing wrong with a punto (cheap as well) or the stilo. perhaps you should take a look again at the mk3 panda drove it a handful of times and seemed very practical.
just so your not totally put off (wasnt meaning to) my sx was still a damn good car and even now i dont think it was that slow persoanlly i have owned 2 cinq sportings and my main car is a 53 reg seat arosa 1.4 Si and to be fair my old cinq would have a go at any of them just wouldnt win depends what you want in a car i had my sx for 2 years and only ever had to do a cv boot whereas the arosa (vag
Was the Fabia a 3cyl My brother bought a seat arosa TDI at the same time as we got the Panda and at the moment the Panda seems to be slightly more economical. If yours is low mileage it may need to loosen up a bit. The throttle travel is also very long compared to the seat (and maybe the Skoda) which may make it feel a bit less responsive.
Yes it was I had a seat arosa TDI before that and I reckon the Skoda was a bit more economical than that too. The arosa was a 2001 (First of the 3cyl models) it used to have a very abrubt power delivery and felt like it was hitting a rev limiter where as the unit in the Skoda was very free reving up to about 4500 rpm. Fabias have a drive by wire accelerator which is quite noticable when you first start using one. JON
im going for a seat arosa if i can find one and its basically a Volkswagon lupo if you didnt know except better looking and Lora what convinced you to go up to a beetle its quite a bit different wouldnt you say
Originally Posted by The younger modder im going for a seat arosa if i can find one and its basically a Volkswagon lupo if you didnt know except better looking and Lora what convinced you to go up to a beetle its quite a bit different wouldnt you say i wanted the arosa a few months back when i decided i needed a new car. Purely because i loved the back lights Then mum said vw build quality is better.
Must admit i really like the bugs as ive seen a few done up and they look amazing but i was put of the new ones when i was told there a vw golf with a different shell as i think the golf aint a fun car untill the latest one came out. And a seat arosa is made on the same production line as a lupo and if you open the boot at look above the rear lights it has the VW symbol stamped into the metal i agree

Too late for most but if your buying a MK2 Punto check the service history for a replaced steering column mine went when the car was about eight months old and thankfully was replaced under warranty. I looked at a few Puntos last year to replace my ageing Polo. Found some bargains but none had had column replaced. Or window wiper motor... My light comes on now and again but Im just keeping my fingers crossed that its a wiring blip rather than the start of another failure Now my engine light has started to come on AAAaaaaaarrrrgggghhh I ended up buying a seat arosa which is a VW Lupo with a seat coat on.

am stuck now he says he had them for his seat arosa pcd 100 35-38 offset but that seat has only a 57mm center bore it dont say the centerbore of the wheels

my first car was a 998cc seat arosa S (S meant slow i think) that did 0-60 in 15seconds and it felt alot quicker than the 1.2 never goin back to a small engine again. P

httpwww.webasto.co.ukamenam_automobile_3016.html I had the 400 Fabric folding roof put in my seat arosa which was lovely. I then had a sliding tilting electric spoiler glass roof fitted to my Fabia. Webasto are great and I think developed the skydome for Fiat JON
seat arosa is the same underneath and cheaper for the same specworth a look
The general expense is the main thing putting me off tbh at least Fiats are cheap to run and cheap to fix when they go wrong. I think Ill just follow mings advice and 1242 the Sei instead foggy89 - I did look at the arosa when I wanted the 1.4tdi but my mileage doesnt warrant a diesel and seat never did a GTi equivalent.
Gutted I nearly took it out and burned it on the spot. And to add insult to injury the other black Cinq is running like a bag of e despite new throttle blobby and a service. I give up and Im off to buy a seat arosa..... Joke no Im not. Im off to find a Tipo 16v engine.....
cinqs are brilliant and really good for the money but they are quite smaller than a punto but it depends on what your after and if you fill your car with car tarts etc one small car i can recomend though is a seat arosa which has stiffened suspension as standard and handle really well the 1.0 version is also quicker than the 1.1 sporting cinq or sei
Just playing with the excellent phot of the Pink panda... I have been thinking the pastel shades work really well with the panda ethos... sort of colours used on the seat arosa etc... and the fiat pandas and the orange indicators looks good also today ... colourful seems to work for me.

I have had five seats the last an old style Leon Cupra - not the best all had major problems at some time. Mind you we still have our 03 arosa in the family still going strong. The new Leons could tempt me back though...... perhaps a Revo Cupra Have fun

Well Ive not done this project but everything I can find (including in the Bentley service manual) says just carefully pull the control unit out of the dash and then disconnect the control cables and wiring. But as we can see from your pictures its not that simple. I did see a video on youtube for removing the control unit from a VW Lupo and had an idea. The unit itself is not very thick or deep and there should be a bit of space in the dash behind the unit. Try pushing the right or left side of the unit back into the dash and angling it out one side at a time past the screw lugs. Looks like most of the connections come from left side so maybe push on the left side and angle out the right side first. Here are a couple links that may help you with the cables and wiring once you have the unit removed. AC control R&R Tutorial How To Remove The Heater Control Unit on a seat arosa or VW Lupo - YouTube
OMG That is a thing of beauty. I now have a reason to do overtime this month. It looks like it also lifts up out of the way does it How sturdy is it I once bought a 3rd part armrest for a seat arosa 16v sport and when I lent on it it collapsed I presume it opens for storage as well. That is a real nice piece of kit. I want one I want one I want one
