MX6 Spotting - Part Deux

Spotted a nice 'P' reg black MX6 yesterday and today on the Bournemouth Spur Road (Wessex Way).

Yesterday he and I drove for some distance side-by-side in the horrendous traffic jam. All the way with me trying to attract his attention to the MX6.com sticker in my window and he studiously avoiding having to acknowledge that there was another MX6 beside him. Ah well...

Today I caught sight of him in the left-hand lane as I drove past at about 100. According to Carl, who was a way behind me in his Punto, the 6 pulled out to come after me but then changed his mind.

Wasnt me Ken, but a guy i sometimes work with has a real nice Black 6, he lives in Soton but i know he has been working at Bmouth Hospital a lot this year, if it had really nice rims and blacked out glass its a good chance it was him.

Is the guy in Charminster with MAZ on the plate frequent these boards? see him a lot, and I think I may have passed MOP in Winton a week or so ago as the silver 6 i saw seemed to match the description.

havent bumped into anyonr else tho.

Not him then, this one had standard 16" rims and no tint on the glass.

Not heard of him yet on here.
If the silver 6 was Mop, he doesn't have a front badge...

I was thinking of doing the list but Im going to give in, theres so many bloody 6s round here ive lost count of the sightings. I see at least 4-5 a week now. Red, Blue, white, silver and another black, all around Bournemouth, yes another red one today.

I need to get a life, and keep my eyes on the road.

Ok i give in, red one ( standard) broken down on the dorset way on sunday, one lady driver, due to jam i couldnt pull over to help. also red one at shell garage in dorchester same evening. Two in tandem in Bmouth on Saturday, one Maroon colour following a Black near Bmouth Uni. Whats going on??????????? Thats 3 of us in 20 feet of road by chance. Black one in charminster mid week, with all no aknowledgement from anyone, I assume you guys say hello. Red one, very modified in Bmouth centre parked behind elements two weeks ago, very modified with pipe, rims and this had the engine spec on the front wings. They are following me..im paranoid!!!!!!

There're a lot of us round this way Marty - must be something to do with all the old farts living round Canford Cliffs way buying them all from new and later selling them on.

Trouble is, you'll be hard pushed to get any acknowledgement out of anyone who doesn't know about the forum. Everyone else reckons car drivers who flash other 'same make' cars are just sad. Miserable gits...

Marty you must be the only person to say you have seen a white 6 on the actual road and not in a garage for repairs and shabby looking
Also seems more people are spotting white 6s now and theres me thinking i was special with a rare car

Spotted a burgundy 6 in Ikea carpark near Bradford....

parked up quick and grabbed a flyer... ran across the carpark and just caught him near the exit.. He seemed interested so we may see him on here soon.

saw a 'm' reg 6, silver in colour, but looked a darker silver than say mops?

we were parallell in a traffic jam on the m25, before the potters bar sliproad, i wound the window down and tooted and waved, the guy just kept on looking ahead.

ah well, he did have a bobble hat on, so perhaps that explains it(grin).

I have spoken on the phone to the guy I saw in the Ikea carpark, and he is joining shortly, so lets give a warm welcome to Andrew from Leeds on his arrival..
