Attractive young lady tailed me in an identical version of my black ti but a spider.....looked uber cool on the twisties between Ilkley and Blubberhouses.

Handled better than my ti as couldn't shake her off on the corners.

Misano blue Brera heading north on the A6 at Fulwood 12.50pm today.
You turned right into Greystock or Yewlands Avenue.
I was about 4 cars behind so you probably didn't notice me.
That blue looked stunning, gleaming in the sunshine, possibly just polished.

If it was polished then it obviously wasn't mine

Silver Brera heading down the runway at wings and wheels!
Chatted to them 'briefly' on the stand, miserable gits

159 SW Ti 2.4

Silver 159 sw on Tolpits lane heading towards Watford. Caught a glimpse of a wave and waved back.

I was in the black 159 sw heading the other way. I'd just left Chris at Proalfa having picked her up from a service!

Flashed a chap on the A33 half way between Reading and Basingstoke, and got a proper arm-out-the-window wave.

...ah good, and that answers the question of why I didn't say flashed a chap in a red 159 wagon - because I forgot to check your rear in my mirror!

Also got half a wave out to a black GT about 10 cars behind you goram.

If you see a white Giulietta in the same neck of the woods on the A33 give it a wave it'll probably be me as I'm often on there. I live near Sherfield.

I'll keep an eye out for you guys.

Wilco! We should all form an A33 convoy


Was that Relentless in his silver 159 under the bridge between Basingstoke and Oakley again tonight?

Just spotted an oriental lady driving a silver 159 (almost identical to mine) on the A34 near Milton, exchanged a wave!

I'm over that way fairly regularly, will keep an eye out. Don't seem to get to Bicester as much as I used to though, even though it's just 1 junction up the M40 from, me.

Yet another black 159, this time with black alloys, heading towards Grimsargh on Haighton Green Lane, this afternoon.
Was out on my mountain bike so no acknowledging.

Just a few mins ago, say, around 1:15pm......beautiful shiny, really shiny black 159SW (not sure if it was a Ti) YB plate, 08? in Stadhampton Oxon. Heading into the village. Gave you a massive wave but feel you were probably concentrating on the upcoming junction with the B480 to reply.

It would be bad for my bank balance if I was passing the crazy bear farm shop as often as you, I think. Are you coming to the Oxon meet tomorrow night?
