Got waved at by a dude in a white Guilietta in Richmond Park the other day (I think it was white, apologies if it was you and you didn't have a white car!)...sadly, I didn't realise this might be 'the wave' till after he was almost past me! I tend to see a lot of Giulietta's around - especially in the car park at work but very few 159 or Brera's...

159 ti 2.4jtdm

I rarely see any on the road to and from work A127 between Romford & Southend but get to see lots in the workshop at work! If I wave it generally results in a rude remark from the techy working on it ha ha!!

Noticed a white 159 with the 19'' 10-spoke alloys during the week, the first one I've seen in this spec in my area (Preston).
I have a Spider in white with the same wheels, so the two would've looked good in close proximity.
Alas, I spotted it too late to muster a wave or a flash of the lights

I see every now and again a red Brera parked in front of Shoreditch High Street station, London Overground.

On my travels today got followed round Southend by a blue Brera this morning, then a black 159 Ti about 4pm on the M1 heading North of the M25, had black (or very dirty alloys) ' on the 'SL' on the reg and a red dangly thing hanging from the rear view mirror, travelling at around 56mph

Thanks for your esteemed reply and picture of the 'horseshoe'. I saw one thus equipped at my local Indy a few days back and had to admire. I may even treat myself to a set soon.
I feel sure tat they are much easier to keep clean than my existing 'dartboard' versions.

Was rather shocked yesterday to see a good-looking metallic grey 159 saloon, 06 reg.on a forecourt on offer at 2450. Only saw the front so don't know which model it was but I thought that any one in the range was worth more than that from a dealer. Any price watchers out there?

The other day I was standing in the rush hour at a red ligth - in front of there was a 159 Ti SW and on my side a Brera. Me having a 159 saloon, it must have been a rare spotting for alfistis

I see a couple of Alfa's on my way too and from work, there is a black G that lives in park gate and its there everyday on my way home. There is also a white G which drives the opposite way every morning, we tend to cross as the same point everyday.

There is a very nice Blue GT and a Blue Brera which i see occasionally but 159s are a little rarer round here

Sunday, I went to the hand car wash near the Sainsbury's in East Dulwich. Of 10 cars queued, there was a GT, 159, Brera Spider and mine. I thought Alfa owners were meant to be rare? Must be we just like to keep our cars clean!

I see a black 159 coming towards me every time I drive along the A41 between Aylesbury and Tring , normally coming down the hill in Aston Clinton , possibly two different cars---- anybody on here ? There's also a black 159 SW that lives in the village.

Never get a flash or wave back though .

Still keeping my eyes peeled and waiting my first wave/ flash in the Surrey area!

Shouldn't be hard to miss in a white 159 Ti SW

I travel on business in the UK often covering over 500 miles a week....yet fellow Alfa's are still a rare site....which makes me smile even more when I do see a fellow Alfisti
For some reason when I do see an Alfa I often see another a few minutes later!
A few Brera's in my home town in Somerset.....but no other 159ti's that I know of.
So if you see me on my travels be sure to flash, wave or act like a demeted monkey and ill be sure to respond accordingly

159

im floating around wrexham/coedpoeth area in a stromboli 159. dont see many 159s or afladisiac anymore.

im all for flashing waving but there are far to many mitos or g's and these poeple tend not to be into the scene. not trying to offend but its sorta true.

Hmmm, mysterious. I'm usually buzzing around that way of a weekend, but I'll make an effort to look out for it now. At least someone in B&Q knows what they're doing.

Followed most of my way home by a red spider last night (I couldn't quite work out if it was a fellow 159 or not)...I wanted to let you pass so I could actually see the car properly! Whoever you are - nice car!

Forgot to say, this was through Barnes, Roehampton and then onto the top of the A3 through to New Malden...
