Two Yellow spiders approaching each other at least 140MPH

I was going south, the other was going north, both in the outside lane

The train :(

Oh dear, I saw a silver spider on an R plate being towed by an AA along the A27 towards Shoreham/Worthing on Saturday afternoon. Anyone on here?

Last Friday afternoon ( 4th March ) on the A10 heading south adjacent to Cheshunt. Reg V6* GTV, Proteo Red.

EDIT : Correction, the one on the A10 was Proteo Red.

Haven't seen any for weeks and then 2 in the space of a minute when I was heading from Reading towards Sindlesham about 545 this evening

Met both of them on blind corners so didn't get a chance to wave - a red gtv and a silver spider, anyone here?

You`d think she could afford to get all the car park dings taken out!

ETA and get the brake lights sorted

Also that seems to be the real plate, wonder if anyone recognises it?

Might have been me in the red GTV.
I was going to/from Asda in Lower Earley at around that time.
If I had seen you, I would have waved.

Probably was then - I was using a bit of artistic license - the red one I saw shooting straight across the roundabout as I was coming from showcase, maybe 3 cars back - no reason why you would have seen me. I go that way regularly, so will keep an eye out

The silver one however... well... you know how just how blind the corners are by the pub...

Yesterday as I popped into Boongate Sainsburys I spied a red GTV with cloverleaf on the drivers side wing in the (I think) Perkins works carpark and this afternoon, about 1.35 a green GTV on the A1260 (Nene Parkway) going towards the A47, I just caught you and did a quick wave, headed in the opposite direction

A red Y reg twinnie in Barry, followed it over the rail bridge and it turned off into Morrisons, if it was you both your brake lights are out but the one in the rear screen is working
