Now an official petrolhead...

As Jeremy Clarkson said years ago, you're not a proper one 'til you've owned an Alfa!

Yesterday after a trip to Mangoletsi in between going out to look at another 2 Alfas, i walked away having signed on the dotted line for a Mito Cloverleaf! ('10 model, in Tornado blue with Black leather)

Same car, minus the leather was what we went to look at initially, just further down the road at Cheshire Oaks, but the garage was closed when we got there early afternoon (who'd have thought you need to check opening times for a car garage on a Sunday?!).

The trip to Mangoletsi was just to see what they had in, and after there we were going to head to Ashton to look at another blue Cloverleaf there, funnily enough whilst haggling and comparing the Mangoletsi car to others i'd seen, and quoted this one in Ashton, it turns out Mangoletsi had it in bits in their workshop, it having been sent there to be fixed, so that put us off that one!

Anyway, we pick the car up Weds night, so looking forward to getting it now, and i'll no doubt be on here between now and then and searching for tips, tricks and info once i've got it!

I wondered whether the car was someone off here's previous car - apparently they traded it in for another Cloverleaf/QV which Mangoletsi had as their demo, and had upped output to 205bhp.

(Just in case that rings a bell with anyone on here!)
