Well at long last I've popped my Alfa cherry!!!!
I picked up my new Mito 1.6jtdm Veloce on the 1st Sept and love it.
Fuel economy isn't anywhere near what was in the stats so I'm a bit miffed with that 'cause I'd have got the petrol turbo if I'd have known what I was going to get mpg wise (45mpg driving like a saint).
Still it's a great car. My big bro's had Alfas for years (a 147 that my mum's got now, and now a 159). It's a family thing now!
We took the Mito to Switzerland a couple of weeks ago and it didn't miss a beat.
