Hello! New member.
Soon-to-be MITO owner. I've order the black, 1.4 95bhp Veloce model. I've been a Fiesta ST owner for the last two years, and had a 1.3 Fiesta (black) before that.
I made the trip to London (from South Wales) especially to see the MITO, last July, and fell in love with the car.
I commute daily by car, and as you can imagine, a Fiesta ST isn't exactly the most economical car for city driving. The MITO has it all as far as I'm concerned - Interior comfort and style, and a beautiful exterior that will no doubt turn many a head. I chose the smallest engine size in the range simply because it's the most cost-effective for me.
I'm expecting a phone call any day now to tell me that my MITO has arrived (Cardiff dealer) as it was ordered over a month ago. Very excited!
P.S - My family has always owned Fords. I was hoping to buy the new Fiesta but when the first publicity pictures broke, (way before its UK release), I was utterly disappointed by the lacklustre interior. I live right by a Ford dealer, so it would have made a lot more sense to buy a Fiesta, but Ford have shot themselves in the foot with the terrible mobile phone-inspired dashboard. The Alfa designers clearly have one up on the Ford designers.
