What looked like a metallic yellow Spider heading east on the A55 in North Wales near the Flint turn off at about 6:30pm today. I was heading west in my Vela blue Gtv waving like an idiot.

You think Gtv's/Spiders are rare in England, try rural North Wales....

I've just had a couple of days away in Wells, Somerset. Monday lunchtime, a black 916 Spider, saw a flash of your lights as you turned left at he traffic lights but too late to react. I may have also seen the same Spider (Y reg?) on Sunday afternoon just outside Wells, roof down, enjoying the glorious sunshine. Shame about the rain on Monday.

Monday lunchtime, a silver Spider (W reg) turning into Bath General Hospital. I was a few cars behind so no chance of a wave

Followed a burgandy 3l V6 (Reg: LI3 GTV) along the Hagley Road into Birmingham this morning. I got all excited and pulled alongside for a wave but the driver was away with the fairies (or still in shock after a bus got extremely close!)

Red Spider, Eastbound on M4 somewhere between the Severn and Chippenham, around 9-ish. I was heading West so I probably wasn't spotted in return!

Sad to say I saw a silver spider in the layby on the A322 (i think) between Bracknell and Bagshot. I hope it wasn't there for any costly/breakdown reason, but the hazards were on. Anyone on here?

Dark blue or black GTV with a spoiler southbound on the A1 between Newark and Long Bennington - no wave, but I was northbound at the time!

Another Black Spider (TS) on the A14 today! Personal plate starting J1... Somewhere near St Ives.

I only ever see them on the bike but still gave on the way past

Got a wave from a green GTV at the Magic Roundabout in Hemel yesterday - I didn't spot you, but my son in the passenger seat was more aware than me!

Nothing

Always see a cup parked in flats down by the beach boulevard in Aberdeen. Happened to be in those flats the other day, so had a good look at it. I want it.

Vela - yep, the Welsh roads were a heck of an improvement over the crap we have to drive on in Beds & Herts!

Shame I was doing it in the g/f's Fiesta rather than my Spider tho - there were 3 of us including my son.

Saw a zoe yellow spider turning south onto the A5 from Caddington about 1.15 today. Got a headlight flash and a thumbs up for my wave - at last, a response!

Anyone on here?
