Stilo Replacement on the Drive

Just taken delivery of Tipo SW to replace 105k 54 1.9jtd Stilo mw written off when hit on n/s front wheel when on a roundabout. Totally not my fault and very p****d of as I had replaced both subframes, rear calipers and brake lines, new front tyres 2 weeks before and it was my third Stilo mw (first one 122k - written off when reversed into by large lorry when parked while I was booking in on site, second one 191k and still going as I gave it to my brother when I picked up the 3rd one with 68k on the clock).
Insurance company put it down as BER. I would have tried to buy it back but the front wheel was pushed back 3 inches and the whole front was pushed across about 2 inches so goodness knows what has happened there!
Anyway first impressions of the Tipo are good - drives nicely and load space is good, I can put a stepladder in the back with the back seat down!!
I am second owner and the car has 9k on it. As I do 2.5k a month I should get a good idea of how it will compare to the Stilo.

Watch this space!!
