Show Alfa good karma, get good Alfa karma back

Today, I was pootling along, and a 156 coming toward me had to stop behind a parked car to give me the right of way. Given nothing was behind me, his speed, my speed and the proximity of the parked car, it was just easier if I braked a little bit and let the Alfa nip though rather than stop. So I did. Got a flash of the lights and a thank you wave from the 156's driver. Nice

later...

Christmas. Supermarket car park. Finally managed to creep out, take a peek to see if it was clear to drive out, to see a black Brera stop, flash, and let me out. Waved my thank you

Good Alfa karma comes around

A driver is always faithful to a car that's always faithful to its driver.

Sometimes in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.

C'mon, Alfa drivers should always take the higher ground and play nice on the roads. I don't give two beans if any other driver of another brand misbehaves, but I don't like seeing an Alfa driver be anything less than polite, kind, considerate and cooperative to other road users.

Dem da Alfa driver rulz boyz, dem da Alfa driver rulz.

I always let Alfa's out if it's possible, did so with a rather good looking woman the other day and even got a cheeky wink off her

When I'm in my Alfa I'll always let any manufacturer out of a side junction, except BMW. When I'm in my BMW I only let other BMWs out, keeps things interested

I've noticed that since many of the ****s have now migrated to Audi, that the Beemer boys that's left are becoming a bit more courteous..?

I think you might be right there Ralf. I was coming down the M4 Sunday evening I had moved to the middle lane, but wanted to move out to the overtaking lane (joking, just joking) to pass slower vehicles. The traffic was fairly heavy and had to wait for a large gap, I was indicating all the time, dropped a cog and pulled out accelerating hard to join the 65mph flow only to have some T*** (sounds like hat) come right up my arse flashing his lights (p r i c k). After I pulled back in, yep an Audi!

Someone said to me, "so whats so special about an Alfa Romeo then?" I told him, "If you have to ask, you wont understand".

Giulia Super Lusso 2.0MA, wife drives 939 Spider 2.2, plus Abarth 595 and there is a 1972 Spider 2000 S2 in the garage for fun days.

Previously, Brera 2.2 Prodrive - 159 SW 1.9JTDm - 1.6TS 147

Ralf S.
I moved away from buying new Audis once the Q7 arrived!
It had all gone horribly wrong.

Did she look like Gabriella Drake? You might be in.

Scud is right - but politeness is it's own reward too.
