Is it me or does the Mito look a bit squatted...like it's squished.

I just went to the Hitchin garage...

And im just not sure it's a bit narrow...

Argh help...

I am quite surprised by just how chunky the MITO looks, and I love it. It's at once an elegant yet imposing car, in some respects.

Letting your friends influence your decision is the road to the dark side. Im almost 20 and I have always really wanted an Alfa, but my friends think there old mens car's :)confused:) and that I should have got a corsa VXR or Fiesta ST :vomit:. Even after all the abuse I got for the 12 weeks, when it finally arrived at the Alfa dealership they were stunned :wow:. It was the best thing i ever did sticking with my decision to getting a Mito as I had a lot of second thoughts about getting a clio sport!

p.s. It was also funny watching them walking around the dealership, they fell in love with every model there! (especially the brera and GT ;))

variety is the spice of life, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, live and let live, cest la vie.

That's all I have to say on the matter.

I have never test drove any of the cars Ive bought, in fact Ive only seen the Mito in the showroom for about 10 minutes. My instincts are usually right though.

What was your last car and how long did you keep it? Just being curious / nosy!

Our second car used to be a Fiat 500 which I didn't test drive and ended up being a bit disappointed with the crashy suspension. We kept it for 8 months then swapped to a new-shape Ford Ka ((same car, tweaked suspension)) which I did test drive and felt had a much better drive.

It's a risk not test-driving at times but believe me the Mito is grrreat so you're lucky this time! :)
