I've seen the same red '56 plate Brera parked up in Clifton-on-Dunsmore village these past two days, it looks the absolute business with 5-hole alloys. Driving past it this morning I thought to myself ''I still want one'' and have been thinking about it all day at work...

Black 57 plate Brera turning into St. Vincent's Road, Fulwood, Preston this morning.
Bizarrely, seemed to be a big Mangoletsi fan, displaying that awful advert on the car's rump .

Silver 159 in the car park at work this morning. Occasional sighting of a white 159 in the overflow carpark, a 156 Ti (slightly dented bootlid) in another carpark, and various Giulietta's...Around the Gillette Corner area.

Found myself in a '159 sandwich' whilst out in the Giulietta this morning - in front of me a highly polished black TI saloon with black alloys and behind me a lowered red Sportwagon which lives not far from me. Both very nice!

159s very common in Preston. Just seen 3 when I popped into town .
Much more exciting was a Misano blue Brera on my gym car park at PNE FC.
Seen it a few times now but don't know who owns it.

I have just done a 1,000 mile trip from Kent via London Norwich Yarmouth Gantham Nottingham back to Kent and then to Barstable and Exeter in Devon. Only saw two Black Breras in all that way. One parked on an Industrial estae in Barnstable the other on the A303 on the way home. I was so suprised I forgot to flash.

Brera V6 Q4 QT

Surprised a white 159sw with a flash and a wave this morning on the A435 Studley, Warks. - I think he thought I knew him. The dark red metallic 156sw I see each day is proving more stubborn though... perseverance will have him

Wow! Two black Breras in convoy at the top of Slack Hill, Matlock this morning.
Had I have been in my Brera there would have been lots of waving and flashing but unfortunately I was on my bike.
Then to top it all, red one driving into Matlock two hours later.
Not seen one for weeks then three at a go.

Yes, hundreds of TIs, esp SWs, many, many Breras, Giuliettas, GTVs, 156s, 166s in this part of the world... Alfas are as common as muck here in case you hadn't noticed I like having a Lusso because it is so much rarer than the TI ...
