GTV 2.0 TS

2 blue GTVs spotted in and around West Dulwich/ West Norwood on Saturday.
Both waved back. Cheers! My first 2 wavers since buying the car in December.

I saw a very well cared for '02 plate red Spider on the A444 Nuneaton, turned off towards Bedworth. Typical, I was in my Vectra not the GTV.

A silver Spider in Goring last last, most enthusiastic wave I've had, with the passenger madly waving both arms in the air. Afraid I couldn't respond quite so enthusiastically as I was in a GTV with the windows closed and the air con on and would have ended up punching the roof and losing control! Love the way most owners tend to acknowledge each other in these cars. Hardly ever happens in the 159 sadly

Nope but I have enjoyed the past three or four that I have been on and am really looking forward to tomorrow as well. I have just given Blue Thunder a wash and an aquawax

R reg red spider parked up outside Russo's tyres in Woodston about 10 minutes ago. I did a drive-by but no-one acknowledged me. Think this is the one I've been seeing around the 'boro recently.

I saw a red spider on the southbound carriageway of the A23 this morning, I think it would have just passed Warninglid (I love that name).

that would've been myself waving like an idiot, and Julliett driving

I have a bad habit of waving like a loon at other 916s

Working at Gatwick as I have since March, I get to see on a very regular basis, a very tidy looking yellow 2.0 Spider (**** HET) parked (always near the road) in one of the Perimeter Car Parks. This pretty little car warms my heart several times a day as I go back and forth.
I was very pleased the other day to notice another Spider (silver this time) parked the other side of the airport near the Cargo area.
I love knowing there are at least three GTV/Spiders in such close proximity so often

This morning I saw a Red Gtv, with the registration H 13 GTV, on the southbound A23. It was approaching the first main roundabout as you come in to Brighton.

I had my window open, so I stuck a hand out and waved
