Don't know it but those are 18" wheels not 17" as advert says also USB is in centre consul not in the glovebox. Also looks like leather interior not cloth as stated and finally that's Etna Black for the colour.

Thanks for the reply QV

Aye I did notice a few discrepancies in the description, perhaps it's an autotrader default description? Probably going to have a look on Sat pm while HID's G is in at Westerns Perth for speakers and dash rattle investigations.

Just had an email from the garage, apparently it has FSH from Western Perth , do you know if there's anything of note in the history other than regular stuff?

I will take a note of the reg and ask tomorrow see what history it has.

Check vehicle data on Alfa site nothing notable warranty wise.

Checked this morning and has no service history at Perth, only thing it ever had here was both headlights replaced under warranty. Note on file that service was declined as had been done else where.

Check the service book and see what it says.

Went to drive the Mito today and....

We were underwhelmed with it :-(
Even in dynamic it just didn't seem to have the grunt we were expecting from it. HIDs diesel G with 140 felt sooo much faster.
Don't get me wrong it was a lovely car really nice to drive, but just felt like it had 100 ponies eating hay


The search cocontinues....

Im thinking about it now, every time we stopped we had the message 'stop start unavailable' now Im wondering if there's an issue with the car which is why we were underwhelmed??

thoughts?

Ours is a 10 plate on similar miles, be aware that it's probably only been serviced once (if at all, given the dubiety) and will be due another....very soon!

Service is pricey, Turbos need the plugs done and they aren't cheap.

Wouldn't worry about the stop n start.

It should be fast in D, N is a handbrake/ caravan simulator.
