    Alfa Romeo MiTo at the dealer

    Hi everybody... I thought it would have been nice to post these pictures I took when i went to an AR dealer in July. Yeah, I know, I'm a bit lazy... and I almost forgot I had these pics stored in the HD -.-
    So here they are... (I had to resize them)

    MiTo #1

    EDIT: ok, I've got some problems with the upload... sorry, this might be my first thread with pics

    And that's all! I didn't choose what pics to uploade, I simply uploaded the whole set (apart from the pics I deleted back at the dealer...).
    To be honest, you can tell there's a certain difference between official pictures from Alfa Romeo and mine/real life. The car looks a bit too... bubbly/bulbous, especially from behind. But what really annoys me is that the rims (215/45 17") look enormous in the official pics! Almost like 20" rims! But, as you can see, they look ridicolous when fitted inside those wheel arches.
    Luckily, when I got out of the dealer there was a couple of Brera which cheered me up!

    You're welcome
    The dealer is located in Pordenone, next to a Fiat dealer. Back to July when I took the pics (I think it was Saturday 5th) already 6-7 people had ordered a MiTo - that's what the dealer said to us.
    I remember the date quite well because the day before I took my new car home.
    A thread is coming...

    it's quite a common problem these days. Even the rims of the two Brera (like the white one) seem under-dimensioned looking at the whole car, but they still are 17" and 18". even speaking about other cars, rims always seem too little, even in supercars like the 599 Fiorano, the 20" rims weren't impressing me as the 17" of the F40 parked aside.

    do you know if the Brera are the '08 my or the old one?

    Funny, when I quote your message your last sentence "You missed..." is not quoted... but a new sentence appears, the one referring to the Brera's MY
    .
    Anyway, I answered to your question, just look above

    Ok, maybe you edited your message while I was quoting it...

    Unfortunately you're right...

    I really can't tell you, I didn't lift the cars so I could not tell about the 45 kilos less

    well, according to the plate of the black one, that is from 2007, while the white one is unknown, but I doubt it's the new one.

    so far, probably the first and only "only Italians UCP's thread"

    I hope too see the MiTo in the wild very soon, I need to figure out if it resembles the Fiat Punto or not.
