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

Was tailgated for a few miles by red Ti saloon this morning. So commuters on the M54 between Telford & Wolverhampton were treated to two shiney Alfa 159s flying up the outside lane (1 black & 1 red) with the drivers grinning like kids!

A couple of spots on way home from the Second City today,

First was a red Spider on the slip road of the A34 Oxford ring road....

...and the second a black 159 in Reading on the Caversham Road IDR,

no response from either, and the 147 was in convoy.

Funny you mentioned about a black 159 in Reading. I pasted and wave to one 3 days ago on Oxford Road as I was heading towards the town centre but no response.

Brera 2.2 JTS

Gorgeous light blue (I don't know the name of the colour ) brera on the M60 Portwood Roundabout (by the big Tesco) and then again on the island at Junction 1! I was in front by a couple of cars so I couldn't acknowledge you

159, Brera & 946 spotted Thread

Red Ti sw heading north on the m40 at around 55mph at about 5.30, maybe as they had their other half with them?


Any spelling/ grammatical errors are purely there to annoy!

No, not me this time.

I generally pass through that way when heading north from Reading or vice versa... not that regularly

I'll be keeping an eye out for both of you... Recently purchased a Brera, I'm just down the road towards Wallingford. Not many of the Alfa drivers I've seen so far are that friendly!!

There's a lovely red 159 TI SW that lives in a local village, not sure if the owner is on here though.

Brera 2.2 JTS SV

Mersey Tunnel

I was sitting in a very long queue and spotted a black Brera to my right (07 plate I think) with an expensive dent in the near side. I was slightly ahead and I don't think he saw me. This is the first Brera I have seen since I have owned mine - Wallasey exit of the Kingsway Tunnel

Its broadly on the way from Wallingford to Henley (although not directly). Feel a little bad calling out the name in case the owner doesn't want that publicised!!

Flashed by a red 159 on the A4074 from Reading to Oxford today, about 9am. Looked lovely with the sunshine reflecting off the paint work!

Saw a very nice Blue Brera in Lanchester last weekend with a lovely Brera related number plate - looked really well looked after.

Also saw a very nice Stromboli Grey 159 ti nr Stanley on Tuesday.

Then a black Brera outside Kingston Park last night, and another on the A1 near the metro centre half an hour later. It was like a festival of Breras! No waves or flashes returned that I could tell

Waved a black 159 on the A33 yesterday evening

There was one day last week when for some reason there were loads of Alfas on my daily commute. Waved at all - but got no response from anyone

Just after the Wellington roundabout, heading towards Basingstoke. I was in the white ti.


Overtook a silver 159 wagon TAXI on the A303 this morning. I like his style!

Black Brera heading towards Morrisons from A33 in the football traffic this afternoon in Reading, I was driving the white 147. The new left slip meant he was past me and gone...
