toxic, were you at a "italian" car show the other week at a big country house ?

My boss was there in a Fiat 124 spider and he was showing me some photo's and I saw a certain Brilliant Blue 156 GTA, had to be you ??

159 SW Ti 2.4

Red Brera between Chorleywood and the Chalfonts on Saturday. Pretty sure I saw a wave and responded at the last minute.

I was in a black 159 sw.

Brera 2.2 SV JTS

White and Blue Spider(s) in Harpenden over the past few days. I'm still a Newbie in my Red Brera - so apologies if you're on here and I didn't acknowledge!

I would have said that would have been me until today when I saw another white spider heading to St Albans this evening. What colour were the seats? Will keep a look out for you.

Haven't seen a blue one in Harpenden though.

Saw a 4C at the Sun in Lemsford. Can you include that in this thread? Oh, already did that

It'll be a limited edition from 2008.
2008 Alfa Romeo Spider Limited Edition | car review @ Top Speed
Came in white, black and red. All had the 19'' 10 spoke alloys.
Unless someone's swapped the wheels on a standard model.

Silver Spider going in the opposite direction to my white one, this afternoon, Garstang Road, Fulwood.
With the reflection on your windscreen I couldn't see if you waved.
Not that I did - I'm way too cool for that.

Bang tidy 159 sportwagen on A30 in the Blackdown Hills heading towards Exeter. Spotted just before I drove into an almighty thunderstorm. 9 to 12 inches of water on the A37 near Shepton Mallet, thunder directly overhead and hail bouncing off the bonnet like ping pong balls! Madness!

Silver 159 on the old A30 just before the Exeter airport. We noticed each other at the same time as we flashed simultaniously.

Black 61 plate Sportwagon with silver rails yesterday, passed me on the way into Weston Super Mare, waved but no idea if it was acknowledged as the fronts seemed tinted too?

Thumbs ups exchanged between myself (white 61-plate 159 Sportwagon) and a Silver spider between Bakewell and Chesterfield yesterday, and a wave with a black Brera in Stapleford, Nottingham on Friday.

That's two in two days, must be someone on here?

Rare colour, and not my cup of tea, but at least it's different and beats grey of course.
The Spider was actually available in gold metallic as well, but I've never seen one.

The last time I saw a gold car was on The Professionals!

That description reminds me of my old Jag - I went with 'champagne metallic' but it was always 'beige' as far as friends were concerned.
And the logbook said 'brown'.

My Spider and Brera brochures have it as '588 Metallic Gold', that's if we're talking about the same colour. I don't have anything on the 159, there might well be a bronze metallic as well.
Probably too retro for such great modern looking cars, hence few takers.

Spotted, this evening. 18:40. Driving through Little Milton Oxfordshire, a red 159 Saloon, heading in the direction of the M40. I was in the Orange Jeep (courtesy vehicle) heading the other way, so didn't flash or wave.

Facelift 147 (champagne metallic?) coming through Ince Woods nr. Formby Friday afternoon. Waves exchanged with my 159!

Also waved a white 159 ti earlier in the week in torrential rain on the Formby bypass.
