I've see soooo many BMWs in the last couple days, about half of which have had people under the age of 30 in, but regardless I've given a nod or a wave with the hand at the top of the steering wheel, but no response back! WTF!?! Where did it go? It seems like it was just there last week! Any one else running in to this?

Yes, most people who drive BMW cars are pricks, they drive them for status and not for driving.

I could have easily spent the money on an e46 coupe and been happy, but i wanted an e36 coupe so i could make it the perfect driver's car.

I like to think that most on this forum shares my opinion, and if i ever see any of ya, I will certainly give you "the go ahead" :wink

yeah fo sho, I get some bimmer love around my town, but most bimmers are for status, and even the 40+ year old males going through their midlife crisis's still granny their car around on the cell phone with the shades on and golf clubs in the back, and dont give a shit about what they drive..they just see me and go "sucks for him..he doesnt have a 120k 760Li."

I gave an e46 M3 the double highbeam flash and a wave. Stupid bastard just stared at me. Gave some newer 5 series the flash and wave, another funny look. My town is stupid.

i get a nice wave every once in awhile.... i followed this E46 M3 once, and he pulled over to the side of the road and asked if we were stalking him, i just said no and i like your car.

My mom has a '02 Jetta, and every other VW owner waves at you and says hi. i like that, to bad alot more assholes drive BMWs

Whenever im driving around town, and i come in contact with another bimmer, we always wave and tip our hats to eachother. However, sometimes you see some really old fuckers (like 60-70) and they dont acknowledge, let alone wave at anyone.

However some old dude in a Z3 waved at me, which i gladly returned.
