159 2.0 Ti

I see 2 red TI's on my way to and from work (around the Thame area), I get waves from both now! If I acknowledge a TI, they normally reciprocate.

Sounds like we need a Beaconsfield/Amersham Alfa meet?? Who's good at arranging this sort of thing and would be up for that? A 159, Spider and Brera gathering would be very cool in my book.

Cheers!

Three 159s in the space of five minutes while taking the missus out for a driving lesson this morning - one of them is a regular spot round here, a nice red estate driven by a nice old boy, the other two were both black and looked the mutts, parked up close by. (Also parked up behind one of these was a red 156 )

You have got to be kidding me?
I don't suppose you took some pics so we can all have a good laugh at this clown?

Saw a black 159 near Headcorn Air show on Sunday sometime around noon.. And a Blue Brera near (heading towards) Dover driven by a lady - I was on a short trip this past weekend to the Island.

Not sure if anyone spotted my grey 159 SW - Apologies if I didn't acknowledge a wave, I was too busy concentrating driving on the left most of the time

I was driving through the slumbs of manchester today, ( as you do ) & spotted a silver 159 (being used as a Taxi i might add), anyway instead of the Alfa wave or atleast a nod (again the use of bracketts, not like i was wanting, needing or even awaiting one). But the african dude that was driving gave me a stair like i've just stole his parking spot...... Charming, next time i'll stop him a say use a Skoda octavia my friend, don't besmirch an Alfa Romeo.

i received, well i say I but it was more directed towards my better half. As we were driving through Poole a few weeks ago, we were making our way through roadworks and crawled through a crossroads with a fellow 159'er waiting at the lights. My g/f and said 159 driver exchanged waves but the 159 driver didn't stop there, he proceeded to blow a multitude of kisses post wave. I love to think he was acknowledging my lovely clean 159 but wonder if these were directed towards my lady lol She found it most amusing and hasn't stopped mentioning since whenever we're out in my car.

If you've not already done so, you might want to check out the North West section as well for this sort of thing. Someone may have spotted you!

I often see a red Brera in Grimsby town centre; although it bothers me that the owner has stuck a GTA badge on the back of it!

That's spoils things, i like the fact that Alfa made the Brera discreet without the engine ltr badges on the boot
