The train :(

Overtook a dark blue Gtv registration starting with DA05 at the top of Handcross Hill on the A23 last night (he had very bright foglights) and eventually we had an exchange of appreciative grins just past the firestation at Preston circus.

Result re the successful spot.

Sorry to hear about the ticket though, London is a nightmare for parking.

Another from me.

Last night near McDonalds in Greenhithe, Kent about 9.30pm. Didn't see the car, so don't know if it was a GTV or Spider, but couldn't mistake the lights behind me. I flashed my hazards as you turned off to the McD's...

Silver GTV (p2 twinny, I think) outside Moorfields Eye hospital at 9:30 this morning. I was on foot so didn't wave.

Red GTV heading south on A41 near Stanmore this morning about 8.35. I was on roundabout heading other way, no opportunity to flash etc.

The Silver Spider 3.0 is parked outside Essex Lodge, Colney Hatch Lane N10 again. Not sure if it "lives" there or just visits from time to time.

Occurs to me that if one were "doing a Tiger" it wouldn't be a wise plan to use your 916 as you might be outed on this forum

If the dark grey car you saw on the A14 was a Spider and depending on when you saw it, it could have been me. What were you in?

My yellow spider -in the queue going onto the A14 at Madingley end -the usual 4pm crush! If it was you you were going straight on I think the A428 towards Bedford Unless you snook in the queue further up
