Maroon GTV approaching Battle around 2-ish
Maroon Spider tore past me on the M27 Westbound near Southampton around 6-ish

Didn't see any flashes or waves so will have to assume they were 'unknowns'...

Dark blue GTV on Whetstone High Road, North London going south-east this morning about 8.20. I was about 6 cars back in a queue trying to turn right onto the High Road so flashing wasn't appropriate!

Spotted a silver 3.0 V6 in the Forest of Dean between Lydney and Parkend last Friday on a private plate and shifting, quickly caught it up in the GTA though, probably not had its diff changed to a Q2 - that really helps keeping the spped in the bends.

This evening about 6.30, a black ??Spider?? turning into A41 Edgeware Way east of Edgewarebury, from ??Kenilworth Road??? Only got a glimpse as I was doing about 60 and the Alfa was coming in from a side road and it was starting to get a bit dark. Not seen a black one before. Really only saw the nose so it might have been a GTV. I've been seeing loads of Alfas recently but not 916s.

just checked and numerically the chances are that it was a non-Lusso 96-98 2.0 TS. If anything else a very rare sighting.

Tonight, about 7pm Alexandra Park Road just before junction with Colney Hatch Road, Muswell Hill, London N10 (yards from where I live) a silver spider just like mine (as far as I could tell in the gloom). Waved, no response. Too late to flash. Anyone here?
