You are not missing anything without the DAB radio - neither reception or quality are anywhere near as good as FM. Only thing you may miss is DAB only stations if there are such things.... It's a shame DAB doesn't live up to its promise - the government having strangled the bandwidth available to it.
My wife has a DAB in her C3 and get much better reception and choice than I do with FM.

Well, on my second Mito now - 1.6 JTDm-2 QV-Line - So I guess that makes me a 'Happy Mito Owner'
Just done a few mods on Friday:
Bilstein B12 kit (Eibach -30mm springs)
Team Dynamics 'Imola' 18x8J with 225/40 boots

Looks so much better visually now it's that bit lower :cool: Not had it out in the country lanes yet, but the ride from standard suspension with 17's does seem a little tighter, but better damping - even though the original shox are Koni...

Hopefully this ride will be as reliable as the previous

@SCMito - that colour looks really nice, and your wheels. Hope you enjoy it. I won't pretend I know anything about your mods, but it does look great.

Hi folks,

My MiTo..

Washed thoroughly.

Haven't got a lot of money but want to make her a bit more unique.

She has lots of scratches and stone chips, and I need to replace one of the alloy hub caps, but I can't fault the drive and she does look nice.

Happy so far...

Had my Mito 155, had it a couple of weeks now and all is good. Red to sort out a cat back exhaust as I’ve been used to my v6 with its stainless growl. I’m surprised how Torquey it is for a little engine and it handles well , I’m missing a bit of feedback through the wheel but no big deal.
Looking forward to going to some meets 😉

I've heard horror stories about Alfas since I was a child, but that didn't stop me from wanting one ever since I saw my doctor with one when I was about 10.

15 years later, here we are! I'll have a lot of fun telling my children that daddy's first car was a Mito. I've only had it for the weekend so far, but nothing to slate. Its a 2010 with 66k miles on the clock and it has that Italian pur and snarl after 3rd gear. The most fun you can have in a first car for sure.

Hi everyone!

Just bought my 1.4 TB (155*) MiTo! She's 09 model with just 57k miles. Super excited as I wanted this since 2009, even tho there are some bits and bobs with the electronics (i.e. steering wheels buttons dont illuminate)

She has a KN filter in the air intake box, bigger front discs and a remap, which I JUST discovered. Bought it from a trader but there was no mention of the remap, up until I drove it in D and I get ALL bars on the dash graph!!

Now, I was wondering how can I get more info about the remap? If I contact the trader, I doubt they'll disclose any details of the seller. I'm assuming the car is running somewhere around 180-185 (as this is what most tuner give).

Is there any other way (besides dyno) that would give more information on the remap?
