7 159's

Went to the NEC yesterday and walked past 5 159's in the car parks. (And before anyone asks if they were all together....) They were scattered around in various car parks around the NEC so couldnt have been in a group.
Then on the way home seen another 2!
To some of you this may be normal depending if you have a local(ish) dealer. But as i live in South Wales (NO dealer ) ive only ever seen 2 since they came out .

Re: 7 159's

There's as many 159s as 156s autotrader.

Not sure if that's a good or bad sign

<edit>ooops, scrub that... I had a &#163;5,000 filter on it...there's 3 times as many 156s as 159s!</edit>

Re: 7 159's

Must've been your lucky day cul, I still hardly see any on my fairly extensive travels. There was mine, another 159 and a Brera on the same floor of a small multi-story at Leeds station the other week, the nearest I've seen to a gathering of new Alfas.

Though I seem to be on a run of seeing a lot of GTs lately

Re: 7 159's

i saw a 159 travelling south on the A19, the driver defo wasnt an enthusiast, and i think i scared him by following for a while then waving frantically.

thats the only 159 i've seen so far (except for at dealerships)

This begs the question what were you doing wandering around the car parks at the NEC? On the rob?

They are much rarer, although I have seen a couple.
