Saw a black TS parked on Fields Rd (Newport) this morning on the way to work. I wasn't in mine though!! By the time I noticed I'd missed the plate...

A very nice looking Y reg black Phase 2 V6 parked up at Tesco's in Sandy. I didnt spot it until I 'd parked and got out of my silver P3 JTS otherwise I 'd have parked alongside.

There was a smart looking silver phase 2 spider fuelling at Marksbury garage near Bath in the Friday morning rush hour. A rare sighting for me; first time I've seen another in the flesh since I picked my own up three weeks ago.

Having just turned off the M1 at J14 today on my way to Milton Keynes at about 15:00, I looked in the mirror to see a silver GTV a little way behind. I flashed my tail lights and as we went alongside we exchanged nods. Lost touch when I turned towards Costco.

See a Nuvola Blue v6 parked in car park of Malt Shovel pub, Drighlington, West Yorks regularly. Same colour as mine, there seem to be at least 3 in Leeds area. Anyone here?

Grey GTV V6 with Teledials in the Barr Tech garage in Cambridge.
I assume it's a customers car rather than one they're selling as I think I've seen it there before.

On the way back from putting a deposit on a 3.0 V6 Spider in Zoe yellow, what should pass going the other way - a Zoe yellow spider! Didn't see whether it was a TS or a V6, but odds on that it was a TS. That was around j15 on the M6 heading north.
Then tonight, the only other 916 I have seen for months was a TS Spider in - yep - Zoe Yellow.
Considering there are only supposed to be 10 or 11 V6s and 150 TS what are the chances!
Is there a list anywhere of all the Zoe's?

2002 3.0 24v Spider in Zoe yellow.

Previously
916 Spider TS in Verde Acido
145 QV Cloverleaf in Red 130
Alfasud 1.2ti in orange

http://www.zoespider.co.uk
A website where I am trying to trace and show all the Zoe Spiders!

Is it this one parked next to mine (the one you are buying)? If so, it's a good'un. Well cared for by a mate of mine a couple of years back who also has a GTV.

And my first ever post! I was coming back from Stoke to Kettering in company Passat. The GTV won't be out until April and dry(ish) weather. A friend also in Kettering has quads. Are they MIJ or more exotic?
