New Alfa Owner :)

Hi all

Finally got a spare few minutes to update you all. Ive been here for a few weeks now, and i have got myself a Mito

I crashed my beloved BMW 330CI in Jan, which was an amazing car, but the fuel costs were too large for my 80 mile a day commute.

So... ive bought myself a 2011 1.3 JTDM-2 Veloce Mito in Alfa red.

Its a bit tatty on the outside, covered in stone chips and scratches etc, plus the odd dink, but it has done 57,000 miles. Its still looks great though and drives perfectly.

i'll address the bodywork over time as a bit of an ongoing project, but i PLAN to keep this car standard, with the exception of the stereo. i do most of my music listening in the car now, so i need a good stereo. I'll keep you all in the loop as work progresses on that as itll be interesting for some of you here.

Since ive had it ive put on two new tyres on the back, and i need to source a new wheel for the front as it has a slight buckle (its not noticable when driving but its kerbed badly too) i'll keep it though as a full size spare is very handy to have.

MOT is booked for Wednesday, then tax at the end of the month (lovin the 30 quid tax - the BMW would be £280 this year!)

Need to invest in the multiecuscan software too as it looks very useful indeed.

Loving it so far
