G29 Spotted

Post by Obs-Com » Sat Jun 20, 2020 4:50 pm

I don’t recall seeing a previous “spotted” thread for the G29? Apologies if this is covered elsewhere but I saw one on the road today and as I’ve not seen one for ages, thought it was worth a mention. The G29 is a rare breed!

Mediterranean Blue travelling out of Wigan this afternoon. Not sure what model but think the dark blue is available on the Sport models? Looked very nice coming towards me and I did give a small wave. If it’s someone on here :thumbsup:

About time we had a 'spotted' thread, it's been mooted before but nothing happened.

Strange thing is that I saw a G29 (apart from mine) today on the A6 just travelling just south of Loughbrough. San Francisco red.

That makes it about 4 that I have seen on the road since they were launched last year.

A lot of people don't know what they are missing.

I saw a first edition a couple of days ago near me in Hanham, Bristol. Was going to wave but didn’t in the end.

Not sure there will be many posts on here as they seem to be very rare but will be good to note any other forum members.
The only other one I’ve seen around is a 69 plate Misano blue 30i. It seems to visit a house about five mins from mine and is often parked on the main road or in a side street. Two wheels were curbed, the second time I saw it.

Other than that, I haven’t seen any others at all.

When you saw it was a blonde woman driving it?

I’m quite close to you and saw my first Misano blue one last week!

I’ve never seen it being driven. It comes and goes and can then be parked up for days on end. I haven’t seen it for over a month now.
Whereabouts are you Sladestar100?

Black G29 (not sure what model) let me out of petrol station today in Bolton. Gave them a wave. Stayed behind me for a bit and occupants seemed to be pointing and talking about my car? Black Z looked very nice in my mirrors! :thumbsup:

I have only seen one about a month ago in Bromley on the road. Was a black M Sport 3.0. They do seem to be rare, i wonder how many have been sold in the UK, as lots for sale on Autotrader with the majority being brand new/pre reg/ or cars with less than 1,500 miles on them.
All the Best

A 19 plate 30i in San Francisco red at Homebase this morning. I met the owner, who was very friendly.
Completely forgot to mention the forum :headbang: to see if he was a member or knew about it.

It certainly took me by surprise. Drove in minding my own business and there it was. Couldn’t believe there was another one, let alone a red one.

The guy walked over and the first thing he said was ‘well you’ve ruined this for me now. I thought i had the only red one around here’. :D

A lovely looking white 30i passed me yesterday south bound towards Wetherby on the A1 at about 17:15, the first and only one in a 300 mile journey!
