Picked up my MiTo this morning, and generally very pleased with it. The downsize from the A6 will take a bit of getting used to, but that isn't the MiTo's fault. The ride is a little hard, but the 17's won't be helping with that, but not a major issue, other than the interior mirror vibrates with every bump.
Only thing I am not 100% with is the drive in "N" mode, feels a little like driving with the handbrake on, however, slip it onto "D" and all is forgiven, it swift and feels punchy.
Incidentally, when I was driving back from picking up the car, I was followed by a red Alfa (Spider I think) on the road back from Honiley Court Hotel (had just been there to pay for my wedding!!) towards Kenilworth......just interested if it was anyone here.
Anyway, I have battled and won with getting some contacts onto the Blue&Me system tonight, so am quite chuffed....only took 2 hours
, but I still grin when I look out onto the drive, so all is forgiven with Bella
If anyone does see me around, mine is a grey MiTo reg number starting WM10.....give me the Alfa Wave
