Latest arrivals

Hi All,

Our Mito should be arriving this week so we went down to Ringaskiddy for a look and sure enough there they were all lined up looking their best. Ours is one of the black ones. Yipee. Happy days.

I will be so glad to hand back the Nissan almera, Yawn. That has to be the most boring car on the planet.

So Cork will have a new arrival this week, it will be good to finally see a Mito on the road, or be seen in a mito.

You can't give an alfa wave in a Nissan, people just lokk at you like you are a nut.

They're a nice little car! Still getting used to mine after a Yaris!

What engine you getting?

The 1.4 turbo multiair petrol 135bhp . Should be fun, I have driven the 1.6 deisel and the 155 bhp models but not the multiair. We are coming from a 156 so not really expecting the same driving dynamics but hopefully a bit more creature comforts and economy.

Well wear with the Mito! It's a rare car in Cork -- or Ireland, for that matter.

Most are probably stock but as far as i know they had come off the ferry on Monday. Ours had anyway. We will be collecting it on Thursday around 4.30.

I must add that Gavin in Lee Garage has been an absolute pleasure to deal with and has gone above and beyond the call of duty numerous times. He will be getting a bottle of bubbly tomorrow as a big thank you from us. Need an Alfa call Gavin

The white multiair, I think the colour is massive almost luminous
Went for dark windows, red brakes and the 18" alloys as extras
Also the tom-tom connector which is only 25quid.
I'd say it will be in before Christmas, but of course will wait for an '11 reg
Long wait next year too as first working day is the 4th Jan

Now all I need is a footrest from argos

Nice spec, I'd go for the 18"s with Red Callipers also Also the Tom Tom port is so cheap it'd daft not to go for it to have as an option even if you never used it.

Veloce ?


You've already checked the calendar Tick Tock

The brera is a hot moma, all looks but burning diesel

I count 14 MiTos there lads, surely most are for delivery, given cars are ordered per spec given by a customer, you dont just walk in and buy one.
Its the optimist in me speaking here which doesnt happen often

Good choice

But don't let the Brera owners here you say that

There are 2 rows, so that's nearer 30 Mitos which is the same number as has been sold so far this year, I don't think Alfa will be selling many more new cars in the last 3 months of the year with 2011 just around the corner

Those cars will be for stock, there are a selection of different colours & specs there so Alfa Ireland will be hoping that there is something suitable in that selection for a share of the orders. Anyone wanting a factory build will have to be prepared to wait for 8-12 weeks to get the spec they want or else compromise on their spec choice & choose something from what's in stock.
