Wave Just got my first Alfa Wave!

Well I've been waving Alfa's all weekend (since I got mine on Friday) but the drivers just look at me like I'm mad! Anyway, I've just dropped my lad off at footie training and I got my first return wave! Silver 159 on Ulleries Road, Solihull; was this you?

Re: Just got my first Alfa Wave!

Good news Chris - that's pretty good going so soon in your ownership! I haven't had a wave in months!

Had the same from a GT Blackline in Worcester one evening last week. He was coming straight towards me so I was pretty obvious, what with the GTA plate and all! Some people just don't get it!

Thumbs Up Re: Just got my first Alfa Wave!

Congratulations! I also own a 159 Sportwagen, as well as a GT Lusso over in Lincolnshire and I have had a couple of waves from the same red Italian registered 159 Sportwagen, as well as the occassional one from UK drivers.

When I had a beetle, many years ago though, we were always at it!

Re: Just got my first Alfa Wave!

Chris
My daily commute takes me through Solihull (Edgbaston to NEC), and I must flash/wave to at least 10 Alfas each way. Only 2 regulars reciprocate (and one of them works at Guests in Knowle).
I'll look out for a silver 159. (The one I tagged this morning was black)

Re: Just got my first Alfa Wave!

I waved at a 155 owner this evening in Bromsgrove , and was surprised not to even get any acknowledgemrnt at all. I would have thought a 155 owner would have done.
so shame on you black 155 owner.

Wasn't me Chris but I'll look out (and Wave!) for ya - I'm not far from Solihull and the Mrs loves Touchwood - there every week.
Did get my first wave in my 159 near the airport from a Black Brera though a few weeks ago!

I still haven't had any more waves. I'll have to keep an eye out for you guys! There really are some miserable sods about, I mean, how can you not be happy driving an Alfa?!

And I used to live round the corner from you! (Well, Carluke, so not quite round the corner, but the same country!)
