Black 159 following my black 159 on A1055 Meridian Way yesterday. Must have been quite a sight for the oncoming traffic. Lost you at a set of lights unfortunately.

Saw an identical red 159ti 57 plate on Saturday afternoon, don't see many around here ... followed on the M25 from J3 down to the A21 Sevenoaks - sorry i couldn't keep up, had the little one in the back so had to try and keep things sensible

I think its annoying that Mitos and Guilettas are being bought by non enthusiasts, simply because they don't understand the Alfa wave. I'm happy to say I have a 50% wave acknowledgment ratio currently with 159s, one was from behind so maybe did not notice the flash, but all mitos and guilettas have failed to register.

I feel your pain.

Anyone one here live in the Bucks area? I want someone to wave at! I spent 6 months looking for the ideal 159 then moved Amersham last year and found that the place used to have a dealership. So the place is flooded with Mitos and Giuliettas....

And of course, nobody waves/flashes. They probably think I'm a nutter by now.

Ah well...

You'll struggle to get a wave from a Spider - we're far too cool for that sort of thing
However, a flash of the lights has been known

Au contraire, at the lights near Wilton last Sunday morning, my flash of the lights was acknowledged with a friendly wave from the grey Spider's passenger.

Flash from a black 159 on the A303 today. Cheered me up as I fought through the pain in the arse bank holiday traffic.

Spotted this in my local paper:
Mixed views on plans for supermarket - Lancashire Evening Post
The picture was much bigger in the paper version.
The person who produced it must've been an Alfa fan, putting a red Brera in pole position .

Hi. I'm in little Chalfont and run a red 1750 Ti SW. What colour is yours? There's a couple of SW Tis in the area. A silver 3.2 Q4, Spiders, Breras it's all in the South Bucks area!

Black Ti SW 2.4 with a personal plate starting S8. Without roof bars. I've seen a red Ti SW a few times in Amersham recently (with roof bars and tan interior) circa 11 plate. Is that yours?

Saw a red spider pulling off the A34 near Oxford this morning.
Then a blue brera on the m62 heading West from Saddleworth.
A few 159's too as I travelled the highways today. A pleasant alfa spotting day :-)

I don't know what it is with this road, but last week I saw a Brera+ black 159 + myself also in a black 159 all drive past each other within a few minutes (a406 lights part)
what's the chance of that

Yes I have a 61 plate with tan interior and up in Amersham quite a lot. Have also seen a white 12 plate Ti SW with black rails in old Amersham. There are two red S Breras near me in Chorleywood and a chap that lives next the the Audi garage with a blue one.

Cheers!
