The Lusso comes with chrome surrounds as standard, and yes the MiTo looks much better with a spoiler.

The lusso comes with "lucid chrome" headlight surrounds, but the website doesn't seem to specify the side mirros.
As for the spoiler, do you want to fit the mito spoiler which comes on the veloce? and would you choose this as an extra option or fit it yourself after buying it?
Just for your information, the spoiler doesn't actually have any substantial use in terms of functionality of the car, it's just for looks. The purpose of spoilers is normally to reduce air turbulence and reduce lift, or if it is big enough (e.g. a rear wing) then it adds downforce. But the tiny spoiler on the mito doesn't do anything.
So if you like the look of it then get it, i personally don't see much difference as it is so small anyway.

You can specify chrome mirrors with the lusso, to match up with the standard light surrounds and the bit above the door, it is only a £50 option, near the bottom of the options list, I know I did it a few times :)

The Lusso comes with Lucid Chrome headlight surrounds (polished/shiny) but with body-colour mirror surrounds. You can specify other finishes at a cost. I'd fit a spoiler as it's not a huge cost and it subtly enhances the sportiness of the car. It'd cost more to buy and fit as an accessory after delivery.

thanx 4 that guys, as 4 the spoiler i know it is just for looks but think it just tidies up the bck of the car. Looking fwd 2 getting even more now. So the mirrors dnt have the chrome finish then? Are they body colour or just plastic? Dnt mean 2 be a pain but want 2 get it right. I saw a white 1 at the garage, it had lusso spec but blk mirror and light sorrounds! Confusing.

Body colour-mirrors are standard... black"opaque" mirrors are a cost option. Hehe I'm getting all of this from one of several Mito brochures collected over the weeks before ordering my Mito. Did you find it all tooo alluring in the showroom and buy it without wasting time on brochures??? ((Nothing wrong with that of course hehe!!!))

The dealer didn't have any brochures in stock m8, i just forgot 2 check 2 be honest. What in the name of all that's Alfa is opaque? As lng as they are painted 2 match the paintwork and not just bare plastic ill be happy.ill go 4 the alloy pedals and spoiler then. I think u have nicked all the Mito brochures techwork!

Sad thing is..I saw "Dundee" and read you last post with a Scottish accent in my head - think I might be insane! Opaque is just a rather bizarre way of telling you that it's not see-through.....cos we usually expect wing-mirrors to be transparent!?!?! ((silly Alfa!!!))

Yes, definitely body-coloured wing-mirrors.
