2 grey 159s in Preston today, one on foreign plates - couldn't get close enough to see, but I suspect Polish.
Grey really doesn't do anything for the looks of the car IMHO.

Spotted and followed a Monte Carlo Blue Brera on the way home from work tonight between Repton and Ticknall, Derbys. I bet the Giulietta driver going the other way did a proper double take when he saw a Monte Carlo Brera followed by a Monte Carlo Spider!

Yes you are right, the old Alfa Romeo dealer in Romford used to supply the cars to them many years ago (Romford Market cars] the show room is now a restaurant now. Two brothers ran and owned the dealership at the time.

Touring grey metallic 159 Sportwagon, parked up in Lytham St. Annes this afternoon.
Same area, but not an Alfa, a Ferrari 360 or 430 Spider in blue/silver. Very, very nice .

He nobbed in kind of agreement gesture look to his face. Then the typical Alfa Romeo insult of evny came.

So much for red 159 SW's being the rare ones! Another red Ti, 60 plate, (diesel tho, I suspect - single exhaust?) in the car park at Great Dixter house, Northiam, nr Rye, East Sussex.

It had a WV prefix, like my old 156.... In fact, I think it was WV60ABV. Anyone on here?

Thursday eve about 5.10, red 159 on Liverpool Rd, Caddishead, Gt Manchester. Managed to get a thumbs up away and it was returned rather swiftly - good going seeing as we must have both being doing 60 in opposite directions.

I was the silver 159 BTW (if you are on here).

Red Spider heading into Weymouth on Preston Beach Road and a Monte Carlo Blue Spider heading towards West Bay on the coast Road from Portesham. Both with their tops UP..... I had mine DOWN - it was 20 degrees

Red Brera in font of me and my black 159 ti Sw in Washington, Storrington and a stretch of the A22 on Sunday afternoon. Lovely looking car. Had trouble explaining to the wife the whole 'Alfa wave' business though!
