Cars we drive

Here's mine: 2010 Alfa Romeo Mito 1.4 Benzina Turbo. Six-speed manual. Black with red leather. Good chance the hide is by Poltrona Frau, although mine lacks the stamp. The leather is amazingly dyed, with a vibrant and deep colour. Really good quality stuff. Possibly the best thing about owning an Alfa.

How's the Alfa performing in day to day situation? Any problems/ issues regarding the car? I have always been interested in Alfas but the problems with older ones (almost bought a 147 GTA years ago) is making me think twice.
Thanks in advance.

The engine is the same inline-four lump as the Bravo. It's not the newer Multiair engine, which is even better. Nevertheless, the power band is very flexible, no turbo lag, and very frugal. I get about 12km/l in city driving and up to 15km/l on highway. And I'm not a particularly frugal driver.
Electronics have been completely fine. No weird alerts of any kind. Cabin is very well screwed together. Nothing coming loose or rattling about.
In fact, my friends with VAG cars (Audi A4, Scirocco 2 litre, Scirocco 1.4) have had more major problems with their supposedly precision engineered German vehicles than me with my car made by flaky Italians. So make of that what you will.

Another option of course would be the Fiat 500 as Naza has a couple of the Arbarth edition.

The Abarth 500s that Naza has are exorbitantly priced, I was told. Nice if you can afford an interesting toy, though.
