Mine is black on black. Had it from new. Dealer or Alfatune serviced. It has been great. Not without a couple of relatively minor "non consumable/maintenance " related items - the lot are listed in my sig below.
It's up to 78k now and the glow plug warning light has come in this week but the car starts and runs fine. They're £10-15 each. I'll probably change them, carefully, myself. The rear discs and pads are low and I mean to do them shortly and it's not far off wanting new rear tyres again which I'll put on before the wear indicators show through.
The older it gets the more I'm sure it will need but it has been more reliable than an A4 I had, also from new.
Don't be put off. The grass isn't always greener.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
2008-15 New 159Ti experience: overwhelmingly positive. Reliable and fun over nearly 100k.
6/9/12 - 15 New Mito 135MA Distinctive - 100% reliable 37k
