At Mitcar today so a few spots, a good line up of spiders, some nice 159s too!


Any spelling/ grammatical errors are purely there to annoy!

Red Spider on the public car park at Patterdale, The Lakes, this morning.
If you were up on the fells we may have passed you, as today we bagged Helvellyn.

Saw a few 159s on my trip up and back from Cheshire today.

Most memorable was the one towing a caravan north on the M40 this afternoon.

Towing with style!

This afternoon (Tues 6th), at 12:10 pm, a grey Brera with temporary plates, headed Nth bound on the M40 between the High Wycombe J4 and Stokenchurch J5. Pulled up alongside and waved, but no acknowledgement......., can only assume you were delivering the vehicle and not familiar with protocol.

Drove past this blue 159 at a car dealers in Kirkham Alfa Romeo 159 2.2 JTS Lusso Saloon 4dr Petrol Manual (221 g/km, 185 bhp)
Looks nice in blue, and can be bought for loose change, but would take a braver man than me with that mileage...

for that price though, worth a punt for someone I would imagine. If I wasn't so attached to diesels then I'd probably have been tempted if I were looking

Saw a silver 159 on the A4 towards Hammersmith the other day. Had a thumbs up. I flashed my hazards and then there seemed to be a problem with him. If he's here, hope all was ok - you looked like you lost power or something and was going very slowly...

Thank you to the driver of a black 159 SW that let me move in to the middle lane on the m4 this evening to avoid the crash.

Much appreciated

A lovely black 57 plate 159 sw ti q4 on the m56 headed west this morning around 9:30.

I was in a dull merc ml as my alfa is in the garage. I was hustling the Toyota in front of me out of the way so I could get a closer look.

Rare as hen's teeth that q4 is, I'm pretty jealous.

I keep waving at this woman in a Red Mito driving through Croston ... It's quite embarrassing as the Wife actually drives a Red Giulietta and I should really know the difference by now

159 saloon (black), could've been a Ti, parking up at Wheatley high school (Oxon) this evening at 7pm. Was in my wife's '16 Giulietta Sprint speciale, by the time I managed to get out, you'd gone into the school. If you're on here.... Hello.

Misano Blue Brera with 18'' 7-holes, and a 6-pot judging by the sound.
Pulling into the Texaco filling station on Garstang Road, Fulwood this lunch time.
I was on foot so could only gawp.

159 SW Ti 2.4

Got a wave back from a shiny black 159Ti saloon at the Kop Hill Climb at Princes Risborough. I was leaving in a blackish (mud everywhere) 159 Ti sportwagon.

Hello if you're on here!

Drove from Basingstoke to Castle Cary and back today, didn't see one Alfa until I waved at a red spider on the A33 just north of Basingstoke on my way home!

Hello to you sir, if you are here

Spotted a black 159 then a red 159 SW heading south on the A34 near oxford at around 7:30 this morning. I was going north. Didn't get a chance to wave as the traffic was moving for a change!!

Parked next to a red Brera at Warwick Services later. There were 3 white Giuliettas there too (inc mine!)

Just remembered, had a red 159 Ti saloon right behind me, and I mean right behind me, going along the A6 at Fulwood, Preston, Friday lunchtime IIRC.
It turned right onto St. Vincent's Road.
I guess the driver wanted a close-up of what a sexy Alfa looks like
