what colour should i go for?

Hi Alfa Owners
I'm new to this, so please bear with me.
Went to see the MiTos yesterday & have fallen in love. There is 0% finance at the moment so would be daft not to take advantage.
Do any of you have any advise on the colours? Black is the no cost option but not really what I want. The blue, white or metallic reds are my favourites but wondered if there was any horror stories. One guy on internet said the paint chips quite easily and wondered if this showed up more on some colours but was disguised by others.
Thinking of the 1.4 petrol 105bhp Distinctive

Hello and welcome to AO

Colour is down to personal choice. The metallic red I think really suits the Mito but then again, I would say that!

All colours seem to chip, the solid Alfa red more so. Paints these days are water based and so not as harder wearing as the old lead based paints. I have a couple of small chips on my metallic red Mito and I've only had it six weeks. You can get clear stick on protectors that go on the front of the rear arches that do help to protect the paintwork.

Just bear in mind that the 0% is only for cars registered before the end of December this year. So if you order a Mito now from the factory but it doesn't arrive before the end of the year the 0% isn't valid unless your dealer has one in stock or they can get one from another dealer. If they can, you might be limited on the choice of colours available.

I can't comment on the 105bhp Multiair but I'm sure you'll enjoy the Mito
