Before i start Dieselman and Robert Saunders i mean headlights not public exposure....:D


I was driving to the Gym today and for some reason i thought about when i owned a Mk1 Golf Cabriolet how when ever i saw one or another VW we would flash our headlights in aknowledgment.

This got me thinking does anyone do this with other Mercedes...... well i am going to start....... so i want to see all ye Merc drivers flashing
 
Don't start flashing your horn, otherwise you really will get into trouble, maybe not with the Police...
 
When I had my CRX , CRX's used to flash each other ... :cool:
 
Dont VW drivers have some kind of hand signal (wait for the jokes)
 
riders of large bikes (no joke intended but there are many,) raise a hand from to say hi to other large bikers, they seem to get upset when pizza guys on Honda Cubs do the same, I believe bus drivers do a similar thing when they see their mates too
 
Bus drivers round here tend to stop in the middle of the road as they are passing each other and have a chat .... :crazy:

Gonna wear my horn out if they don't stop soon ;)
 
When I had my Mk2 Golf had few waves/flashes from drivers by. Feel part of the Dub Club. Lol.

Also joined a Z3 forum, who a few members have said they will keep an eye out so perhaps a similar thing there too?
 
My dad has a motorhome; fellow owner/drivers often give some form of hand gesture to each other, I have noticed

Yep, they do that here in Buxton too!! :mad: :mad:


As for the flashing...I think a dignified wave may be more apt for MB ownwers.;) Though you'd look a bit of a dipstick until it caught on.:D

I think not. Our local Russian mafiosi might get the wrong idea.

So shall we start a new trend, flashing or hand singal:bannana: :bannana:
 
I think you need a specialist/uncommon vehicle to warrant flashing at passing like vehicles, or you could be flashing a hell of a lot!
 
Hand signals I feel - MG owners do it (although less so to MG metros and the like). A simple wave by uncurling of the right hand form the steering wheel became instinctive when I had the MGB - I now find my fingers twiching when another 202 Sport is heading towards me.
 
I've been known on occasion to lift my hand in acknowledgment to passing Corrados....... from the Merc:crazy: :eek: :) . For some reason they've never noticed:D. Got out of the habit now.

Lol, I do feel a bit envious of other Merc drivers now I'm in a BMW, and of other VW drivers without my Golf anymore, feel "out of the club.":(
