Spotted a grey 159 in Hertford yesterday, complete with body kit and spoiler. Definitely something you don't see very often .

Always cruising through Hertford, Ware, Stansted Abbots and Bishop Stortford atm soon to be modified with painted calipers and drums, new badges, bumper lip, tinted rear windows and bisconte decals.

We use Intertek at work, for UL/CSA certification of some of our products.

Spotted a Maroon 159 SW with horseshoes and cream interior in Hertford parked near a pub, I think the number plate was ZXS, but only a street away I saw parked a 145 and 147. Then on the mainroad opposite Wickes there was a lovely Red Guiliette with horseshoes and red calipers

Silver Brera again at my local gym at PNE football stadium.
The car had just arrived so had a good natter with the owner.
It's a 2006 2.2 and he's had it 3 years, never needed a penny spending on it apart from routine servicing, and it's now done 78k.
He was oblivious to the possible timing chain and gearbox issues - this site has a lot to answer for!

Really nice looking car, they look so much better in the metal than in photos.
If they had more up to date engines I'd have one. The 1.75 is only marginally better on consumption and performance and still has the crap gearbox so doesn't appeal.

Past: GTV T.Spark Lusso (owned 8 years) Present: 948 Spider LE (bought Nov. '10) Future: 8C (in my dreams )
Previously (selective): Porsche 944 Turbo; Porsche 944S; Jaguar XJ6; Audi Coupe; Mark 2 Golf GTI.
