There's also a red Brera in West Didsbury. So that's three of us in M20.
My commiserations to him. Poor soul is addicted and doomed

I pass his house on a weekly basis, between Sept and March. Occasionally the rest of the year. I'm pretty sure there is a red 156 GTA on there. And a second Barchetta just down the street!

There could well be those cars you mention - there's just too many to take in!
The Streetview image has a few different ones as well https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.78...7i13312!8i6656
If you pan the image round you'll see a red 916 Spider in the road opposite which is also theirs. This is then replaced by a red 156 Sportwagon in an updated image when you 'move' down that road.
Curious to know who they are. I'm certain they're not Alfa/Italian car specialist dealers - one way or another I'd have found out by now if they were having driven nothing but Alfas for the last 15 years.

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.

Haven't seen another Brera in ages and today they all appear. Red Brera in Morrison's car park Maidstone. Another red Brera in the petrol station opposite Morrison's car park along with a red spider.

I've spotted several 159s in the last couple of weeks around the SW London area and Richmond Park, including at least 3 in the company carpark at 'the big bad pay-TV company' in West London...

I could be one of those, it seems to me my 2nd home at the moment !! Mine's got the factory bodykit on it and its black, so easy to spot. Usually parked outside Athena court !!

Just seen/heard my 1st 4C in Stockholm, sounded great ..

Black Breda on the A33 yesterday morning heading Reading. If you're on here I was the mini driver trying to catch your eye (not some mad man staring at your car!!)

Then a red brera on the A34 near Oxford

to you both

159 Ti 1.9 JTDM

Whilst on my journey travelling to Italy from South Wales, seen a nice silver 166 on gb plates north of France on the a5/a6 at about 8 am.
Then to top it off, arrived in Turin yesterday evening to be greeted by a black giulia quadrofoglie. I am in love!

I'll have to come and have a look around Athena Court in that case. We have a 4C in the carpark at Sky...

Three breras today. Is there a collective name??

Last one I saw was at the petrol station in Bromyard. I did wave as you were looking at my giulietta as I drove by.

Hiya if you are here!

An unusual metallic brown/grey?? '06 159 Sportwagon, Blackpool Road, Preston, yesterday lunchtime.
Sounds a horrible colour but actually looked rather elegant.
Not sure if I've ever seen another one quite like it.
