New member tempted by an Alfa...

Hi everyone

Having recently written off my 2002 BMW 330CI coupe, i'm in the market for a new car.

I loved the BMW, but i was thinking of replacing it anyway due to the running costs.

Ive recently bought a house which needs a lot of refurbishment and the three litre pertol engine was too expensive for my long commute to work (40 miles each way). Tyre costs for 18" wheels where too much too, so ive been looking for something economical to run, but still interesting in some way.

The mileage i do (20,000 a year just commuting) suggests a diesel, and its only me in the car 95% of the time, so ive been thinking about a car thats much smaller than the BMW.

The current favourite is an Alfa Mito 1.6JTDM 2009/2010.

I've got to test drive one yet, and i must try some other cars too, but the Mito is the only one ive got excited about so far.

I'm here to do some research etc, so i hope there are some friendly mito owners happy to help me out.

Thanks in advance.
