I got a wave from a tidy black spider at Progress road A127 lights the other day, made me feel a bit of a bond. I drive a silver 159 Q4, 3.2 and wave at most Alfas 159/ Brera/ Spider etc. not all respond, but it's nice when they do.

Brera 2.2 JTS SV

If you have a 159 (black I think, it was dark) with private plate starting G17 and were driving at about 1730 on Sunday afternoon on the M62 near Leeds, note that one of your brake lights were out! :-)

Yesterday afternoon in Halfords car park in Rugby - I was just coming out, walking back to my P5B Coupe and saw a red '56 plate brera parked up close by, a youngish lad got out and as I passed him I said ''nice Brera there mate'', his reply was ''thanks, it's ok when it works!''

Looked nicely 'used' too...

Roma 159

I spotted loads of Alfa Romeos over the past five days in Rome. I saw many 159s, a few 159 SWs, 156s, 147s and even a couple 166s. I saw not one Brera (although I did see a diesel Spider). But this is the one that caught my eye:

Someone with a Q4 in water Orton? Leaves the windows open when outside? Randomly doing a turn up your road and spotted you


Any spelling/ grammatical errors are purely there to annoy!

Defaced with poorly fitted non Prodrive front mud flaps, if your on here you should be ashamed of that DIY job.
