New Alfa owner here!

Hi fellow Alfa owners, a newbie here

Had my Mito now for about 6 weeks and I love it. Its 'only' a 78 Sprint in Tornado Blue (had to watch my budget) but I really like the way it drives, and Im pretty impressed with the build quality so far.

A brief bit of back story - Ive always driven FIAT's, and was driving a Grande Punto which I had had for 4 years, and it was going fine, but I saw an ad in the Metro for the 0% finance deals on the MiTo and thought it looked like a pretty smart car. The following Sunday, it was a dreary rainy day, so out of boredom I thought Id go and have a look at a MiTo, but had no real intention of buying one. However, being pretty impressed, a few days later Id signed on the dotted line! As much as I liked my Punto, the Mito definitely feels like a step up, and apart from a dreaded small paint chip, Ive have had no regrets so far. In fact as I work at the same place as my mate, we car share, taking turns each week to drive, and when its his week, I get withdrawal symptoms having not been in the car for a few days!

Thanks for all the welcomes.

Just did my first long drive in the MiTo down to Bath and Swindon over the last weekend and had no issues whatsoever and was a pleasure to drive.
