Bloomin' lovely black 159 Ti saloon I have seen a few times on the A326 in Totton, Hants. Given him a flash and wave a couple of times and got a wave back.

First time anyone has actually acknowledged me with a wave and first time any AO member has said they've seen me

Black Spider queueing to leave Asda Fulwood as I was driving in in my white Spider.
Drew alongside and words were exchanged .
It must've looked pretty damn cool to everyone else in their boring boxes

Not on this occasion, though using the right amount of 'product' is definitely a factor on those windy open-top motoring days .

He's just an attention seeker .
And hatchbacks don't get nearly as much attention as sexy Italian convertibles .

Just spotted a nice silver GT in East Molesey, Surrey and was about to wave when I saw she was on the phone! I hope not one of our members.

Yesterday I saw a black Spider parked at the far end of Upminster train station car park.

About 30 minutes ago I followed a red Brera from Laindon towards Basildon, it was unbadged but engine note could only be a V6. Sadly I wasn't in the Alfa, so couldn't give a wave, on the upside I was in the 330Ci, so could enjoy a pair of 6 cylinder symphonies!

Sorry if I was tailgating a bit, but I just had to hear that V6.

Nice black 159 Maidenhead today being driven by a guy with a beard. It looks great! (the car not the beard).

Waved a silver 147 on the A33 and flashed a bunch of lads in a red 147 near Basingstoke.

Wave and thumbs up to two GTs in convoy near my local polling station. Hello!

Although this is not the UK I do know at least one unmarked is with a nameless force.

Exchanged a flash and a wave with Red Brera on the A32 near Alton this morning.

Both of us looking lovely in the sunshine against the Spring greenery (the cars as well!).

Yesterday seemed to be the "Day of the Spider" round my way.
Not seen any for months and months then 2 within 5 minutes of each other.
Silver joining A1(M) at Letchworth junction.
Wave exchanged with lady in stunning White one - Martins Way in Stevenage.

Hello to you both.
