Thumbs Up Spotted in East Anglia..

Hello Everyone,

Just like the Gtv section of 'Spotted' I think we should start a thread on 'Spotted' for East Anglia. We drive cars of any model in the Alfa Romeo range that look very pleasing to the eye and very pleasing to drive and personally think its a rewarding experience that only the Italians know to design and offer the driver with a 'proper' experience and as Jeremy Clarkson says 'You havent driven a car unless you have owned an Alfa Romeo'. I kinda agree with him.

It would be really nice to see and wave to other drivers of the same marque who probably belong to the forum and club.

So here goes...

Drive it like you stole it...

I regularly wave to up to 5-6 different people on the A140 between Ipswich & Eye in the mornings. I've made contact with several on here since. But there are 2 that I haven't, a Lady in light greenish/silver 159 SW who always waves, and a man always with passnegers in an identical 159, used to drive a silver 156, always waves too.

Yep - dropped mine off on Monday.

Good news - it passed it's MOT the Friday before.

Bad news - I knew the head gasket had failed before the MOT. I took a deep breath - hell I know everything else is ok - so even at 157k miles I am paying for the repair - should be back with me Monday 5th.

I saw the repaired head on the bench on Thursday (Mario and Paul send them to engineers in Clacton) - and it looked like a work of art - happy to have it on a coffee table - shiny, shiny and, more importantly welded around ports and skimmed.

Call me daft but I am also replacing the water pump, cambelt and variator (due anyway), gearbox oil (never looked at in 13 years), thermostat (failed - open 2 years ago) engine oil and filter. Oh and the starter motor was not always engaging - so that is being serviced as well. Gulp. Some would say I am mad to pay so much but - hey I know that this repair is heart rather than head but - hell I love this car and I trust Avanti - so no problem.

What was yours in for Wibble?

No rest for the wicked, picked up my best friend in Bury St Edmunds. She was impressed by the Gtv and loved the tan leather interior and I met my little sister for lunch and she showed me around Essex University as she is in her first year studying law, needed support from her bigger brother
