Giving other 8L S3 drivers a friendly wave?

MrTackalakalaka Jul 2, 2012

  1. I used to own a VW Transporter T4 and would always get a wave from other people driving them. Started doing it myself

    Now i find myself doing it in my S3 to other 8L S3 drivers but no bugger ever seems to wave back. Does anyone else give fellow S3 drivers a wave? or am i just gay? haha

    Depending on how you look when you wave it could be considered gay ha ha

    Alfa Romeo owners do this a lot, mainly the older rarer Alfas though.

    I've told this one a few times,I got a job in Banbury and the first week on the way to work I passed an S3 and waved as I hardly see any.
    For the next three months I waved every morning to a bloke I've never met :)
    I saw an 8L S3 the other day and waved at the driver who beeped and waved.

    the only type of communication ive had with another audi is when i slightly cut a woman up to race a porsche, she then calmly pulled by my side and gave me the little finger gesture as though i was making up for something!! I wish i would of followed her and slapped her across the face with it a few times, she was pretty fit too!

    I've mainly drove vw beetles(old shape) before my s3, everyone flashes and waves in a bug, also we would pullover and offer assistance to a broken down bug as they are easy to fix, Audi drivers don't seem as friendly though, I've flashed at a couple of s3's but just got a glare back

    It's only gay when you wave and get nothing back, and you feel a bit stupid afterwoods! lol :bye:

    I've had a flash of the headlights and thumbs up from drivers in different brand cars after we've had a quick play, that called mutual respect irrespective of who had the quicker car. I find mk2 golfs get the flashy headlights or wave at each other treatment. S3's not so much, but then I hardly use mine.

    Yeah I got a wave from a Noggy RS4 the other day - I can't say I've ever been waved at before but it felt rude not to wave back so I did (along with a "nod") - haha!

    The occasional thumbs up to a nice looking car of the VAG community but generally nothing back.

    Last summer with a Noggy Blue RS4....Was driving back from Hastings along the coast road and saw one with silver mirrors in my rear view mirror- he over took several cars to sit behind me....he was almost pushing me along at one point I swear! So I 'let' him pass and we went for a 'gentle' cuise back- was very courteous as well as even when he did get well in front he would slow back down so I could catch up and not let any other cars filter between ....gave waves and flahses as we parted after a good 30 miles of fun :) Down here it's always the unwritten rules that you give a wave after you have had a blast with someone....had one from a biker last night after we had a little play

    Right, my mission this week is to wave at, flash or do the Churchill nod to any other Audi on the road, lets see who's the kindest car owners, lets make this a science lesson :).... All in agreement say "aye"

    I think in the VAG scene you get some youngsters with the first DUB for some reason they give you evils as if they are the only ones allowed to drive em.

    You get others who just start at your car knowing its modified but wont nod, smile,wave or anything

    I do get a flash or wave after i've had a little play with someone. I left this other mk5 gti recently and he flashed me afterwards

    I usualy find the older guys more friendly. There is one guy I pass most mornings who has a slammed passat with tints hids etc, I think his car is from poland as he is LHD. I usually get a wave from him when we pass each other.

    I used to get loads of waves/flashes on the MG ZR scene, but it would appear that most Audi drivers are tw*ts and don't like to wave. Only 2 other S3 8L owners in my local area and I know one of them already.

    I do get a lot of people from various brands looking at my car for a good few seconds whilst in traffic or passing though....always nice knowing your car is admired.

    I dont know about you guys but I do feel other Audi drivers of all models do tend to be more courteous on the road with me- such as giving way and moving over to let you pass on motorways etc.

    I expect it's since Jeremy clarkson has branded all Audi drivers as tw@s and the general public believe anything that dinosaur says. We Audi drivers now have to stick together whether it be an A1 or a V10 R8. I cant actually recall a moment where i have got road rage from another four ringed driver.....

    I always let on to fellow S3 drivers, don't always get a response lol but from experience I found the ones with a more OE look always give the nod back. Once let on to another black S3 coming out of KFC (gave him the wiggley wave and everything) nothing!! just an eyeball!!

    Then realised I was driving the skoda :crying:

    i have waved at other 8L S3 in the past and most just look at me as if i am nuts so since then have decided to stop as it was getting embarrassing. There are a few S3`s locally i have seen but never seen them on here so guess they just have a car and dont wanna join or know about the money pit club that is ASN.

    Gonna have to get me an ASN sticker at some point and get it in the car as that way perhaps i can wave at fellow ASN`rs instead and not feellike billy no mates.

    I used to get this and do this myself all the time in the Cossie:p. Anyone with a "Fast Ford" would always wave or flash the headlights. Then again everyone would stare at it! :thumbsup:
