M25 southbound, just now - followed a dark blue / black (not sure as it was dark) 3.0 V6 - registration X30 GTV. Overtook you in our silver twinny and waved on the way past! :-)

916 GTV 3.0 V6

Saw two GTVs, from a distance, in London this weekend. Vela/lightning blue one near Borough High Street around 11.30am Saturday, and a red one heading east on The Highway today about half two. That's two more than I've seen in the last fortnight!

Hi, I was in Silver Spider by Ditchling Road lights. I didn't mean to ignore you but was on phone (handsfree of course) to my son as late in picking him up. You are my normal spot travelling north up A23 though. I live in Patcham where there are 3 silver Spiders within a 3/4mile of each other so quite common sight. Mine is N1 9LFA reg.

  3. Got into Brighton and a silver spider pulled alongside me at the A23 / Ditchling crossroads (Reg No. K * LFA?) - I hooted but he didn't see me / ignored me.

Just from another post that you were also on your way to Falmer as I was. Where do you sit?

Yay! A spot comes off!
And Yay, a fellow Seagull I sit in the north stand, close to the (collossal) west stand, whereabouts do you sit?

And if all the above wasn't good enough, I had a spot of two further Gtvs (silver of course) this evening at about half six:
  1. While I was economising on fuel and brain power on the southbound A23, a TS on an 03 plate came alongside me and gave me a big grin and a , so I followed him to the other side of the Ladies Mile pub.
  2. Because of my stalking diversion, I went down Surrenden Road, where I spotted a fella in his V6, just outside the Park view pub, so I slowed down and gave him a and got one in return. There quite regularly I think, anyone on here?

I think the 03 spot you had was one I've seen recently with red interior in and around A23/27

Ive not had a season ticket for 3 years and have really missed watching the Seaguls so wanted to sit in the East Stand to get full atmosphere of the West and North Stand. I must say I wasn't disappointed.

That blue Spider may be the one I pass on the A435 near Studley - he heads north to Birmingham, I head south to Arrow

This week on the M27 Westbound:

A Sarsassi green (I think) GTV that done Hedge End to Eastleigh (Airport), kindly flashed me out into the outside lane but then dropped back into the traffic...

Silver Spider as I joined at Fareham last night, obviously not in a hurry as they went to the inside lane once past a lorry...can't remember the last time I used that lane for more than 25 metres
