I was late. I hate being late. I'm good at it though! Think I may have spotted you yesterday on the A33?

Matte grey Brera on a 60 plate parking up in sainsburys in Tadley Hampshire today. I tried a little wave. But he was too busy reversing ☺

It did look good though.

If you're on here I was in the white giulietta sportiva.

Red Spider going in opposite direction with hood down near the Capital Centre, Walton-le-dale around 5.15-ish today.
Only saw you at the last second so apologies for no acknowledgement.

159 ti's are around & not rare at all. I seen two yesterday in the space of 1 hour, one black, one red. I see Alfa's everyday mainly Gt's G's & 147's though. But without fail i see a 159 every week some where around & about

Agree with most of that, apart from the GT.
I don't see that many even though they were produced for an age.
It's nice when I do see one though, particularly if it's a Cloverleaf or Blackline.
That said, a GT is nowhere near as rare as a Spider or Brera.

Rasta's don't usually drive, i've only seen real rasta's on foot. Usain Bolt owners a ferrari it's been seen driving about from time to time. Cars are more than double in price what we pay for in the UK hence not a lots on offer unless you can afford to import one yourself

As you would say in your neck of the woods " Why aye Man" People do go & live in other parts of the world you know. I'm sure you don't plan spending the rest of your life in the Geordie Shore

Came back on the 6th of Feb it'll probably be November before i go back. Anyway before i saw a Grey 159 ti shell filling station Greengate, then a 147 Grimshaw lane, then a white Guilietta Oldham Rd, another burgungy 147 Mills hill Rd ( near the pickle factory Middleton ) then another 159 lusso in black on Broadway
All located about 5 miles apart. Some Alfa's are not that rare at all

A flash and a wave with grey 159 SW on the A30 near Micheldever. Fortunately I was in the right car this evening. The sun was shining, and so was the car (washed it this morning), so I'd found an excuse for a 40 mile drive - to Basingstoke to drop off some papers and have a bit of a chat. Waste of fuel? Of course not!

159 2.4 JTDM

Couple of weeks ago M25 J8-J12 morning rush hour I followed a grey 159 2.4JTDM TI which had exactly the same number plate as mine except for 1 letter! Was freaked out, especially as they also went down the M3 and off onto the A322 same way I was, it was only at Bracknell Coral Reef roundabout that we parted company.

Brera 2.2 JTS

Weirdly seen a few Brera's in the past couple of days now! I was behind a blue '06 Brera on the M60 yesterday for about a mile or so before we both came off on the exit for the M56.

I also shared a wave with another Brera (I've somehow forgotten the colour! I think it was Grey ) on Altrincham Road in Timperley yesterday as well
