Silver Brera on the A34 southbound this morning, flashed to let him in, he did a bit of a wave as he pulled off the a34


Any spelling/ grammatical errors are purely there to annoy!

Guilty as charged Sir! Had a new client to see at 9.30am and was on Eastway.
After donkey's years being on this site I've finally been spotted!
What colour's your Brera Petera? Will look out for you - there's not many around the Preston area.

Brera 2.2

Driving on the m4 today, an exact mirror image of my car pulls up alongside, we turn to look at each other, then he speeds off down the motorway.

Same colour, same reg year (56).
Couldn't believe it

White late-registration Spider seen on Trowell Road heading away from Nottingham - yesterday? No, perhaps the day before. Hood up.

Don't think he saw me as I was going the other way, hidden behind a van waiting to turn right and I only clocked him as he came out of the blind spot.

Pulled onto the M3 south of Winchester this morning in the 159, and there was a red Brera in front, with a black SW a little further ahead.
1,2,3. Nice. No spider though. Ah well...

No, there wouldn't be. They're very exclusive you know...

Monte Carlo Blue, non standard alloys.

There is also a Misano Blue Brera at Preston Arena most Wednesdays early evening. I parked next to him (or her?) the other week, it had gone when I returned.

Definitely never seen your Monte Carlo Blue Brera, I'd remember it as it's my favourite - nearly bought a Spider in that colour.
Unfortunately it wasn't offered on the LE, and the extra trinkets won the day.

White Spider, roof down spotted on Grape Lane in Croston on Saturday afternoon then a Red 159 and then a Black 159 on Southport Road Ulnes Walton a bit later on ... Oh and there's a Red 159 parked on a drive near the Blue Elephant Indian restaurant near there, which reminds me there's also a Red 159 on a drive in Mawdesley too, passed it on the bike on Saturday. I thought me moving to the sticks would mean seeing less alfa's ... evidently not

Another white Spider, not me this time.
159s are very common around these parts - I've more or less stopped posting about them now. Just the more exclusive Alfas from now on!

Yep ... Spider's and Brera's from now on for me too ... It was a middle aged blonde lady driving the spider (tan interior) so yes, I guess that wasn't you

That fits the description of the only other white one I've seen - but she lives in Blackpool.
Could now be 3 in Lancs!

2.4 Lusso 159

Red brera chased me out of Banbury this morning from the M40 roundabout up the dual carriageway towards Middleton Cheney. It was fun what engines in it? Kept up with my black remapped 2.4!

159 & 156 S/W

White Ti 61 plate this morning 8.30 M56 jcn 21a.

I was in the silver 159 behind you for a mile or so - flashed no response back.

I moved inside and alongside - gave you a look and a thumb - nothing.

You moved in behind me and I put my hazards on - again nothing.

You pulled off onto the M62 slip road - good, you miserable git, I didn't want to be best mates or anything, an acknowledgement would have been nice though!

Nothing.

From my experiences of driving around Ormskirk, she was probably trying to figure out which lane she should be in
