Would love feedback as to how you adjust from the 166 - the practical stuff etc.
Not planning to get rid of the 166 but just thinking ahead to when it might sleep with the fishes (or the Suds!)

Hey Kyote. Well wear with the new lady in your life..... Small tip... Don't let the 166 kniw about the Mito..... Otherwise she might slip a cog on the timing.... They can be vindictive...

I will write a little review in a few days on first impressions, handling mainly as 95bhp is no rocket ship!

I have driven lots of alfa over the years to compare with....but the q2 diff and DNA system are very notible in dynamic mode - feels like a Sud in dynamic mode!

Honestly they are no rocket at 95 BHP but the DNA is a nice little touch and puts a smile on your face, as said already well wear .

Its a mixture of country and city. My commute is about 10miles on country roads and last 15miles on a good quality R road (good surface, no holes). Country road that are quite bad - narrow, rough surface, uneven - they played havoc with the suspension on my 166 and 156 before that.

I'm really interested to see if I can notice the q2 diff....

Was the Q2 an extra?

The Electronic Q2 is standard on the Mito apart from the 78hp version IIRC.

Ahh I was wondering why they would put a mechanical diff in a car with 95bhp, although in saying that the most fun car I've owned was the 146 and that was only a 1.4
