My MiTo is one of the first, I believe: 2009 (59 reg) and the number plate says it was a demo car.
There's no indication the software has been upgraded since birth.
My local Alfa agent has said it will cost £56 to update the firmware.
I am fortunate in that the money isn't a big issue. But is it worth actually having it done?

Er.. um... does the protracted silence mean that I'm being an idiot and there is no such thing as a software upgrade on the Mito?

I can't comment for the 2009 model, but there certainly was a software update for the 2014 QV TCT I bought.

That upgrade made a major improvement to the TCT gearbox which before the update was prone to clutch slip when moving slowly in second gear.

Hi, I've owned my Mito from new (September 2009) and have never heard of a software update, maybe they mean that they will run a diagnostic check and possibly reset the service reminder.

If software updates do exist and the car was serviced at a main dealer, they might well have done the updates without telling you. Updates should be done as a matter of routine at each service.

I admit though I have no knowledge whether there have been any software updates for early non-TCT MiTos.

FWIW my mechanic (who seems to know a thing or two) suggested I leave well alone, even if there is a software to update.
