From Rover 75 to a Mito...

Hello all,
Tomorrow, I trade in my 2004, 151,200 mile Rover 75 diesel (yeah I know) for a 2012 Mito Sprint 1.3 JTDM - 2 with less than 7,000 miles on the clock.

A big difference in cars, but I am using the hopefully great mpg of the Mito to subsidise it's monthly payments. 44mpg on the Rover, and a probable mot bill of a few hundred pounds has prompted this.

I'm very much looking forward to a different driving experience altogether!

Hi guys,
Thanks for the welcome
I drove about 60+ miles in it today, mainly motorway miles but a good bit of city driving also.
Not as harsh a ride as I'd expected, Dynamic setting is fun, overall 60 mpg.
What I miss......centre armrest (can I retro-fit one?) and no lumbar support
