Hey thanks guys... you've been very helpful with your advice. I will definitely be sticking with the mito and the gtv for now. I will have to get over not owning a GT.
As it happens, I was really messed around by the dealer. Dare I name them.....it was Mangoletsi.
I had arranged and booked a viewing. So drove 2 hours to get there to find the car sold. I spoke with the salesman I'd spoken to on the phone. He denied all knowledge of the booking! To say I was pi$$ed off is an understatement. I promptly left after politely telling him what I thought. Needless to say I won't ever deal with them again.
I did feel afterwards that I will stick with what I've got, so all in all they probably did me a favour.
