You're right of course but I'll continue to 'out' the miserable gits in the hope that they are on here and realise what a tool they are

SV JTS 24V V6 Q4

Went to Morrisons in Chadderton Oldham a couple of days ago, when i came out some dude was walking around my car then stopped looking at the front end. Turns out it was just a man admiring the Brera & he thought it was a really nice colour in Blue. He also said he saw a red one also parked their last week.
I saw that one today with TBi black alloys parked in Morrisons in a couldn't care less parking bay ( not somewhere i would park. I worrie about parking dings ) And a black Spider with a manky hood & a smashed in passenger door, also parked without regaurds for it's own safty. That was Cheetham hill retail Park. ( The Fort i think it's called ). Probably a couple of misery guts not on here anyway.

Id never seen the appeal of your blue Brera, but I'd never seen one in the flesh until yesterday. One was following me near Duxford and I couldn't stop looking at the damn thing in my rear view mirror, absolutely stunning and not at all lairy like I used to think. There's something really special about Breras in real life, photos rarely do it justice.
Good choice on the blue!

Good choice on the blue!
If you detail them well enough when cleaning they're as good as 8C red with the sun on them. They have a two tone colour blue, sometimes even a bit of green jumps out in the flake. The bloke even said when you think of Alfa Romeo you just normally see red ones, but that colour on that car really looks the part. I'm getting comments quite a lot lately. Some bloke in Stockport was all over it in a petrol station. He ask is it a 3ltr V6? I told him it's got a 3.2 V6. He said you got to get an Alfa with a V6. It needs to go the way it looks. I agreed with a smile

159 SW Ti 2.4

Spotted two today:

1 burgundy Lusso (I think) lowered with gunmetal finish cloverleaf alloys at the Tesco's roundabout in Andover. Didn't wave but we we clearly eyballing each other as he watched me go around the roundabout!

1 silver Ti Saloon, going the other way as I was sat in traffic outside of Reading around 5pm. Again, we were both rubbernecking each other!

Anyone that's on here?

Spotted navy blue Brera in Tesco's car park Burseldon. Parked my white Giulietta in neighbouring bay. Also thought I saw a few Breras in Bitterne pub thornhill park road.

In the half light this evening (sixish and drizzle) I was flashed by (I think) a red 159 SW on the Tilehurst Road, Reading when I was turning into Cranberry Road. I apologise for the lack of acknowledgement, but I was mid maneuver!
In the same vein, I failed to acknowledge a black 159 also on the way home tonight and I realise why we don't get flashes and waves...
... I was too busy admiring the car!

I never get spotted. I think the is a shortage of Alfa owners in the
Hastings/East Sussex area! On the plus side, i have only seen one other
159 around hear so maybe i am a trend setter!!!

Hi,

I've spotted a few different Alfas around Littleborough/Rochdale and surrounding areas. I do wave or give the thumps up but I just seem to get blanked. However driving past Hollingworth Lake last night I saw an Alfa in fact my mind eyes was elsewhere and if it was not for my partner saying look an Alfa the guy is gesturing at you I would not have been able to acknowledge him. Not that she cares she just thinks its funny that we do that.

Don't think the owner of the Misano Blue Brera is on here that i seen on Droylsden Rd today, but it was nice to see a mirror image of my own car coming toward me. I don't normally flash other cars unless i'm thanking them or letting one go, couldn't see the face of the driver with the rain today just made out the hand wave. And yesterday a silver 159 about 12:40 ready to hit the M60, but still on Broadway
