I was just remembering back when I owned a '94 Wrangler . . I learned quickly that all Wrangler drivers wave to each other, no matter where you go, without fail. Those of you who've ridden in one know what I'm talking about.
Why can't Bimmer drivers develop some sort of camaraderie like that? What would be our sign to each other?

because the attitudes of BMW drivers are different. lol they are either rich and stuck up or dont care about anything. but im sure some would be nice about it. i wave to people around here and they wave back. especially the younger ones...
well said balance, other BMW drivers are rich retards that their husband bought their car for them and they dont even know its a bmw! lol i see one almost everyday, a woman(like 45) driving an e36 m3 convertible with the top down.. GET OUTTA THE CAR!

i hate when people dont respect their bmw's! as most know i work at a country inn, where fine cars such as bmw's arrive. I always try to start convos with the owners on how great they are, and how they really are the ultimate driving machines. 1/4 know what im talking about. i get about 4 bmws showing up a day. as for those other 3/4's....idiots
It depends whose driving the car.. if its a guy and hes not 50+ they ussually will wave, unless they are fags... if its a woman she wont wave... its gotten to the point where when i see an e46 325i i just assume its a 40 year old woman.. fecking auto 325's.
Anything other than a 3 series and i dont even bother.. e39's no way, 7's no way, some e34's, whenever i see an e30 (which is rarely) they ussually will.. Generally e36's around here wont, unless its an M or a modded 6 cylinder. 318 = the teenage club mobile.
All of the VW bug drivers used to wave to each other too.
If you go back to where I was raised in Illinois, all of the old timers still wave when they meet another car. Just a lift your hand up off the wheel thing.
When I am driving the 840, I have people talk to me from the curbs at traffic lights and in parking lots. Cars weave thru traffic to catch up and see what I am driving too.
If I see someone wave I may or may not be able to return the gesture but if you pulled up along side when I have the windows down I would probably participate in a bit of conversation about the car. Old Fartism at its best?or worst?
Now on the other hand when I am driving the Cobra everyone ignores me.
It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others. Mine sometimes feels that way.
