Hello Just Joined
Just joined the forum,but have owned several Alfa Romeo cars,just recently purchased a new Mito 95bhp Diesel in Lusso trim with a lot of added extras,including leather interior .I traded in my beloved GTV as the running costs were starting to cripple me,mostly Road Tax and Fuel.
So far not that impressed with my new Mito,the build quality is not what I call good and the leather interior seems a rip off for the money.The GTV was a much better car,considering I paid £16200 for the Mito I am far from happy,but on the positive side it does 60mpg average and costs only £30 pa Road Tax with 1st year free,so running costs have been cut by about 60%.
Have really enjoyed owning Alfas in the past,have owned Alfa Suds,33s all been exciting to own and drive.But I am now thinking that maybe the best driving years are over with heavy traffic,speed cameras,expensive fuel and road tax.
Also have a collection of Alfa Romeo Books,Magazines and Models,have been a big fan of the Marque along with Fiat,Lancia since my teens.
