Spotted two today in the space of 1/2 an hour!

A graphite D3 saloon heading through Aberdeen (another new owner up here!).

Had to pop into B&Q at lunchtime and parked next to an old friend. Not sure what he's done with his wheels though... :?

At my driving club at Castle Combe today, the guy turned up in his B8 again. Unfortunately, we were busy most of the day and didn't get a chance to speak to him, and even more unfortunately I didn't get a chance to drive it. Next time 'eh!

Also, on the way back, heading West on the M4, I believe I spotted a B3 Touring, steel grey and on foreign plates.

Wednesday evening this week - popped into Sandbach services to get something to eat, as I was pulling in I thought thats a nice looking new shape 5 as I got closer low and behold a b5 - first one I've seen in the flesh, looked black with a light/ivory interior - also had the stripe kit fitted.

Spotted twice today - very dark blue B3S convertible, once at 8am on the Salt Box Road, Guildford and once at 6:20pm in Burpham, Guildford. Looked very nice with the top down. Reg was FN03 B**.

Also, to my horror, spotted a Vectra with fake Alpina wheels, nooooo!

That might have been me!

Was it between the A6 and the turning back to Loughborough near Stanford Hall?

Yep I believe it was... you were in a line of about 3 cars so I didn;t get the reg plate... but I was heading towards the West Leake turn to take the back route into Kegworth
