Yes a new car pick up about a month ago. I sold the black 159 SW Ti as I felt the 1.9 a bit underpowered. I'm still local,decided not to move for now.

So, an Alfa owner (again) for nearly 5 years now and finally (after 'Alf' spent a day on course car duties at Wiscombe Park), I receive an 'Alfa Wave' from the driver of a silver Brera on the outskirts of Honiton…a landmark!!! ;-)

We're you on Tilehurst Road? Now it's morning (!) I remember seeing a very clean red SW. Looked slightly lowered too!

159 ti 2.0JTDm

Silver 946 Spider A33 today - sorry no wave I was transfixed on the back of the Shogun driving way too slow.

Also spotted 4C out shopping in Winchester this morning - it looked cool even pulling into Sainsburys!

Blue Brera on A59 near Copster Green.
Got to say they are stunning cars and a design classic.

Red 159 wagon A303 slip road - nice motor! I held back a bit to let you past the truck but you didn't go for it. You probably though cheeky b***er when I zipped past! Local?

Waved a Black 159 Holyport, and waved a red GT somewhere but can't remember where.

Both of us looking lovely in the sunshine against the Spring greenery (the cars as well!).
That's why I keep it shiney to distract from the driver lol

Out in force this evening

Driving a dozen miles back to Winchester from Southampton this evening, I've seen a white Brera, grey 159 SW, a white saloon, and 2 white SW.... Plus a smattering of 147s etc.

Must be the forecast of good weather this weekend!

None of you will have noticed me. I was in a silver Rover 75. My 159 is due some exercise on Sunday and next week.

Saw a lovely red brera heading north round brum on the M6, reg ended in JAB I think, well looked after.


Any spelling/ grammatical errors are purely there to annoy!

Drove from Preston to Wembley and back in the day and only noticed one:
A red TI Sportwagon bombed past us (I wasn't driving) roughly halfway heading south yesterday.
It looked the business but was soon put in the shade by a black 458 Italia not far behind it.

Grayson knows how to get a team out of League 1 You might need a new man to progress in the Championship though

I'll stay on topic with the red 159 I've started to see on Lees Road in Oldham, morning and evening and always going in the opposite direction to me.

He certainly has the midas touch in League 1, that's for sure.
More than happy for him to do a full season in the Championship, regardless of results.
He's completely turned the club around, it was nothing but a sinking ship before he arrived.
We just need to get some of the loan players signed up, the main one being Jermaine Beckford.
It's only a matter of time before Grayson heads back to Leeds as that's his dream.
Though I don't think he'll be interested with the current owner there who's known for firing managers willy-nilly.

No new Alfa sightings by the way

Past: GTV T.Spark Lusso (owned 8 years) Present: 948 Spider LE (bought Nov. '10) Future: 8C (in my dreams )
Previously (selective): Porsche 944 Turbo; Porsche 944S; Jaguar XJ6; Audi Coupe; Mark 2 Golf GTI.

A whiff of "on topic"...

I went to Autolusso yesterday for a service and took my 6yo son to MK for the day whilst that was happening.

Anyway, whilst at AL, "whoah! Look at all the cool Alfa's daddy"

Cool.

Side by side with a silver Brera 57 or 07 this morning, Garstang Road, heading towards Preston.
He must have been well jealous of my stunning Spider!

2 black 159s .
One near PNE football stadium who let me out of a side street, thanks, and one on Asda car park with black wheels - not a good look.
