Spotted a silver 159 heading south on the A34 this evening, was wearing one of those car bras

I bet she would.
They can be a PITA to park (when the hood's up and with knackered sensors) so she'd need to be a good driver.
Of course women are great drivers, that goes without saying.

Sunday lunchtime?

I would say it was me but that would imply you had the reg wrong.

Also, I passed another red Brera a bit further north so there were at least 2 of us on the M6 that day. Anyone here?

Didn't get a good look as I passed due to heavy traffic but maybe you noticed my 7 year old son giving you a wave.

And another, round the corner from me (leamington) owner of a black Ti sport wagon and red spider, was pumping up his tyre, gave a big wave...he just looked bemused lol

White 10 plate 159 saloon going up the hill in Overton today. Hello! Local?

No wave because I was a passenger in SWMBO's focus.

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
Yeah, he had Beckford at ours when he was manager - would have loved to keep him (Beckford). He's done brilliantly for you and needs signing up. He'll no doubt get a hat trick against us next season

Are you Leeds or Huddersfield? I know he played for both and Grayson managed both clubs whilst Beckford was there.
And both are in West Yorkshire!
Not sure if PNE will be able to afford his wages...

I think the wages situation was probably our problem (Huddersfield) too. But I think you've got a good chance of getting him. And Grayson definitely gets the best out of him.

I've had fun spotting (or not as the case may be) any 159s around my area since I picked up my beauty six weeks back. Nothing up to now, then 2 159s seen in Nottingham in the last few days:

- A grey 159, private plate beginning E..., waiting at lights at the top of Wollaton Vale on Saturday evening (I waved, driver looked very puzzled)

- A black 159 this evening, 07 plate I think, near Beechdale swimming pool coming the other way. Driver looked across at me but I didn't see him in time to wave.

If you're here and you saw me, I was the white 159 Sportwagon

"puzzled look or no wave" indicates a non AO subscriber!! Got plenty of them here in Newcastle!

It surprises me as there are that many problems with Alfas and many people search for resolutions on the internet and the AO website always features on the top of any listing in google!

That's how I found the AO site back in 2005 and never looked back since!

You would think the Alfa wave/flash would be standard etiquette but it seems not with many owners

Way too many Alfas around in my area to be bothered with the wave, I'd feel like a bit of a loon doing it so frequently .
Spiders excepted, which remain a rare beast that I hardly ever see .

I spotted a black Brera in my rear view mirror yesterday on the southbound M1 Leicester, at around 8.20am. It had "halo rings" in the headlights. Belong to anyone on here?

Maybe I need to load 'Alf' to the gunnels more often; a wave leaving Wiscombe after course car duties last month and another one this evening as we headed towards Cadwell Park in a roundabout way...admittedly, going south from Chipping Norton on the Charlbury Road isn't the most direct route to Lincolnshire...but...it did result in a mutual wave with a red Brera.

Yeah, You didn't look that happy... Hope you hadn't been sitting in that queue too long, and/or you didn't have far to go

Visited the girlfriends parents at their new place, new build in Legomery near Telford, one of the neighbours has a metallic grey spider parked out the front.
