I have a Black Phase 2 Twinny by the way, be sure to give the wave if you see me!!!
I'll deffo watch out for you

Without sounding too silly what colour is proteo red? is it the bright red or dark metallic red like mine?

Cool

You know what maybe I'm getting confused, it doesn't take much! I think that any red that's not bright red is Proteo! I believe it is the dark red, I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong!

Spider 2.0JTS

Alfa Spotting in Radlett & Borehamwood

2 GTVs and 1 spider in 10 mins of driving. Is this a record!? Silver GTV on Theobald st, parked up just coming into Borehamwood. Then R reg silver spider, looking like it needed a bit of TLC in the shopping centre. Finally coming back through Radlett blue GTV 3.2 JTS looking lovely. I was the silver P3 spider flashing from behind!

Saw the green spider again this morning, just before the roundabout at Broadbridge Heath but after the Tesco roundabout. I flashed and got a wave back

Welcome to the chosen few! Actually I used to see loads around Newcastle a few years ago but much fewer sightings recently. Check out the North East forum.

Hey everyone, spoted a very tidy Zoe yellow GTV spider on the Chase Meadow estate in Warwick this morning. Are you on here? I waved from my Rosso red 156 but not sure if you saw me

v6 GTV 1999

Seems to be a silver spider working in the same business park as me at Hook, Hampshire - having a GTV v6 I can't afford the subisdiation of the Petroleum industry for travelling to work so was on foot

Ok an update of alfa spots from my travels last week :-

A Dark blue V6 on princess street in edinburgh last wednesday around 1500 i think

funnily enough there are loads of 164's, 155's, 145's etc in Lithuania and i only saw 1 GTV, going past Hotel Panorma on Saturday morning.

loads in london but the only one i can really remember was a 52 plate cup parked just up from westminster abbey yesterday.

It'll happen! No one ever spots me. I was spotted when I had my Rosso V6. But alas haven't been spotted yet in the TS. I could leave mine on the main rd near my place and wait for GTV Wen to spot it. Is that cheating?!
