Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Last night on the M4 between J14 and J13 Eastbound, around 5:15, I was overtaken by a red GTV - almost identical to mine. Might have had a rear cup spoiler on it. I couldnt catch up cos I was conserving petrol at the time. Sure you've passed me on the M4 before (on the way to work) and flashed your indicators.

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Very smart Blue Phase 3 Gtv parked in Cley High Street (North Norfolk) over last weekend.
I think its the only P3 I have actually ever seen close up.
Anyone on here? If so, hope you had a nice weekend!

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Hya mate.... that road you mentioned... is it the road after Holyport on the A330 signposted Bracknell/Jealotts Hill? ( think it's "hill"? ).
You know, i drove all the way to Ascot on Friday and back again on Monday and didn't see ONE SINGLE ALFA ROMEO!.... shocking really!... i was a bit ropey at the weekend, went to the Belvedere pub ..you know it?...always a GTV in the car park ( mine! ).

Lol - nope, it was heading north away from LB, and it definitely wasn't Ned.

In any case, Ned drives a Nissan truck to work ... had the joy (!) of driving that myslef for a day when he ran out of courtesy cars!

Re: Spotted a GTV/Spider? who was it?

Saw literally dozens of them over the last 24 hours.

Highlights:

Yellow spider on M25 going clockwise around 3pm.
Proteo Red GTV on M2 on Friday around 5pm near Bluewater, I was in my new Burgundy Fiat Coupe 20V Turbo, so drove alongside you for a little while.

So many others about it's not worth mentioning!

Common as muck these days

Ian.

Last Sat 23rd about 2pm just outside Perth on the A9 heading south - silver GTV.

Then loads in Leighton Buzzard this weekend ... a smashing green Spider in Morrison's car park last night, a blue one heading north on Heath Road this morning, and a red one just south of the town centre just before midday.

Also an older green spider along the Tilehurst Road around the same sort of time (with a tasty lass driving too ).

Im in a black 54 plate with an aero pack spoiler and alfaholics sports exhaust.....

Finally got my spider!!

Hey guys, gone and got one! 2L ts lusso spider, pearlescent blue, blue leather interior, 53k, just under 5 grand! well chuffed! got her last thursday and drove her down to devon yesterday - passed a silver spider with the roof up at thruxton, took the a303 to give her a good run and didn't get the wave!

Unfortunately someone has already decided to key her and has done a good job. luckily i have an idea who did it. Still, jealousy is a bitter pill to swallow i suppose!! great day for some lid down driving yest and im gald i've joined the club!
