wave

  1. First alfa wave

    Introduce Yourself
    On my first day of owning an Alfa! This is hard to get used to coming from a fairly faceless kia cee'd SW! The car is a white Giulia Veloce and I got the wave whilst driving back through Chesterfield (Derbys, UK) on the way back from the dealer. I did, of course, wave back.
  2. Say Hello, Wave Goodbye.

    General Alfa Discussion
    After an almost faultless 5½ years with my beloved 159 SW 1.9 Jtdm Lusso, yesterday saw me, sadly, selling what has so far been the best car I've ever owned. It was beautiful, practical, relatively fuel efficient and never once broke down on me (I think it's cost me less than a grand in repairs...
  3. The Alfa wave !!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    We were out in our new to me Alfa GT on Sunday and we were waved at by a fellow Alfa driver....being new to the Alfa Romeo world is this common practice and is there some kind of special wave or etiquette.? It was a surprise to us but also made us both smile.. We feel like we are part of an...
  4. To wave or not to wave?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Being the Alfa lover that I am, when I saw the silver 916 Spider coming the other way I thought it'd be rude not to give him a casual wave as a sign of brotherhood.......................... alas it was a one way gesture that left me trying to make out to my better half that I was sweeping away a...

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, I'm Paul, big time petrol head (prefer diesel actually) I own a Land Rover Discovery II that I love to bits and recently rescued a beautiful 159 saloon that was going to get sold as parts. It wasn't being cared for and I like a challenge so going to going to put some tlc in and bring...
  7. A cheery wave and a sudden loss of coolant....

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello to the white spider on the A46 near Warwick on Saturday around 7pm. I'm sorry you had to use your wipers after I'd passed you with a wave. It was the contents of my cooling system! A break in a connector between plastic and rubber pipes led to a four hour wait for recovery. Not quite the...

  10. When the Alfa Wave goes horribly, horribly wrong.....

    General Alfa Discussion
    A confession: Sadly my (gorgeous) Spider is not practical enough to be my family car. And so I have another non-Alfa boring saloon. I'm sure I'm not alone. Trouble is, I get so used to the Alfa Wave in the Spider that I sometimes wave at other Alfas - but from the non-Alfa. Imagine the scene...
  11. long wave radio reception?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi - this may have been asked before, but can't spot it........tried to on ICE section of Forum, but no responses yet. Giulietta 2013 Lusso - standard-fit radio/CD player. Is it possible to get Long Wave reception (for the Test Matches)? Doesn't seem possible as far as I can see. On my previous...

  13. Wave if you are in Kent

    General Alfa Discussion
    If you are an Alfa owner in Kent, or just passing through, wave!!! I have a red Sportiva Nav Giulietta!
  14. Do you wave?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    When I first got my spider around 18 months ago, every alfa 159, brera, spider I went past we shared a brief wave. However the number of alfa 159, brera and spider I'm seeing is increasing but no one waves back. Makes me feel rather unloved. Is the alfa wave dead? Do you wave at other alfa's?
  15. A nod and a wave!

    General Alfa Discussion
    I am new to the Alfa experience (having loved Alfas since my brother had an Alfa Sud ti when I was a kid) I have now owned my metallic red Mito 2010 model Veloce multi air for a couple of weeks. I have seen a few Alfa Romeos now that I own one and what I was wondering, have any of you noticed a...
  16. What's your Alfa Wave?

    General Alfa Discussion
    I was wondering if there's a specific form to an Alfa Wave like an RAF salute or is it just a subtle 2 fingers lifted off the steering wheel like a measurement of whisky? :lol:

    These wheels are growing on me, anyone put these on a pre 2005 156 sw - any pics? ...not sure though, is there just something too chavy about them? :rolleyes: 17" OZ Wave - Matt Black Diamond Cut - Wheel & Tyre Package - larkspeed.com Also considering Team Dynamics pro race 1.2's, and 17"...
  19. First Alfa Wave, Wardley Industrial Estate, Manchester

    General Alfa Discussion
    Driving back from work earlier this evening and spotted a nice GT coming the opposite direction. I waved, he waved. First time anyone's waved back so I am a happy chappy. Hello to you if you are on this site
  20. Who did I see today?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello All Not sure whether to post here or on the Yorkshire forum. Today I pulled up to the cross road traffic lights at Bailiff Bridge near Brighouse and pulling up opposite me was another GTV in the same colour as me (silver). I think I may have embarrassed the poor chap driving the other car...
