Spotted another red 159 SW in town earlier today, private reg' number and very, very shiny - looked the business.

(Watching a Top Gear repeat on Dave whilst munching breakfast this morning and it was the episode where they had a red Brera in the studio, first shown way back in 2005...! Hammond and Clarkson both drooling like lovestruck schoolboys).

Think it was weekend where they featured the cool wall, & again them two both fighting over who's going to the toilet first with the picture of the Brera.
And it wasn't to wipe there bum with, you know what it ment, i'm sure.

SV JTS 24V V6 Q4

Spotted a lovely silver Brera, think 08 plate turning off Holmfirth Rd, think onto a car park near Dove stones.

Looked like a spider at first as i was coming down the hill, but it was the SV roof.
They look amazing on the road, again hope mine looks that way too.
They stand right out with huge presents, looking very wide.

Also thanks to the......Think it was a 166 in black, or may of been a 156 on Chew Valley road for giving way as he didn't have to, he had right-of-way

They both got a flash of lights, i got the Alfa wave

Just back from a 1200 mile trip around Cumbria and Northumberland. Didn't see a single 159. I'm so pleased I'm not in the majority

Silver '06 159 1.9 JTDM - Bristol

I let a silver 159 out in front of me on my way home last night - must have been around 7:30pm on the Hartcliffe way, Bristol.

It was a 1.9 JDTM with a mangoletsi sticker on the back - I followed you along the Bedminster road where you turned left at the roundabout.

Tidy 06 159 2.4 SW passed me whilst I was waiting for a bus in Acomb, York this morning. Lovely greeny/bronze colour (not sure what its called - not seen it often; also I'm colour blind so it may have been something entierly different for normal eyes).

Red Brera parked in the main railway station car park too.

Trailed a black 2.4 Ti on the M1 north this morning, shared a knowing nod with the driver WR 57...


Any spelling/ grammatical errors are purely there to annoy!

Can't remember if it was a Ti or not.
Will keep a look-out for those lights!

I'm in the Blackpool area fairly frequently but Preston-based.
Someone else has a white Spider LE just like mine in the Blackpool area, been spotted around the airport area at South Shore, but not a forum user as far as I know.
South Shore / Lytham St Annes tends to be the area I frequent.

In Sicily and nearly got run over by a police 159! There were some very scary people inside so thought it best not to take a picture!

Think that maybe one of those supercharged Brera's from Autodelta, reason i say that note ragazzon cat backs,
rear bumper valance, front bumper's split under the grill too, also i can just about see the side bumper vents
( from what i can make out ),also another badge type embolem where the Brera rear badge is, Keen eye for details.
