Yet another black 159, yawn, near Sainsbury's and PNE footy stadium, lunchtime today.
Said I wouldn't report on 159s anymore because they're that common, but sadly not seen any Spiders or Breras for some time.

I've only been spotted once, a few weeks ago, and I've been on this site for years.
I'm self employed and travel round Lancashire regularly!

I received a flash and a wave from a red 159 on the Dorchester bypass yesterday. It is funny how a little acknowledgement puts a smile on your face!

I flash and wave all over Dorset (especially around Dorch) and get nothing back..... they can't fail to spot a Blue Spider with the top down can they?

They're just jealous Steve because you drive a better looking Alfa than them

Don't listen to Lussoman , before you know it you are out looking for V6 spiders to put on the drive as they are more exclusive than your current G!!

That doesn't make sense, he doesn't have a G, only a Spider

You're right about V6 Spiders though - very rare.
Alfa 4 ever has the best one, the rarest of the lot

Sorry lussoman you were telling me to get one on the G forum I should get a spider instead of another G! Looks like I'm going to keep the G and get a V6 spider for weekends and sunny days.

Ah, yes, I remember, apologies, it does make sense now!!

Nothing wrong with a G Sportiva, I quite like the look and a great spec.
Talk of Multiair problems put me off them, though I guess it's no worse than the cam chain thing with petrol Spiders.
I think I've read too much on the Alfa Forum...

I've been toying with selling my Spider LE if I can ever get my head around throwing more money at getting the roof fixed.

My G is fine. It's the 140 JTDM and is great. But fancy something with no roof and a bit more oomph for sunny days. Also seen a Z4 but not talking about that on here. I'll get black listed!!!

Got to admit reading forums makes you paranoid about every squeak and rattle you here and that every car has a problem!

Would that include on the road into Weymouth, passing through Osmington, today? There can't be too many around in the same colour as yours, let lone in Dorset.

If it was you, I was the white 159 SW going the other way, nearly missed you on that bend. :-)
