    When a friend of mine first got his MGF, other drivers of MGFs always seemed to wave and flash (steady!) at each other like you said "PeterS3" in appreciation!

    Do S3 or S/RS drivers do that?

    P.S. I pick my car up tomorrow - so I need to know cos I'm driving from AmD (Oxfordshire) back home in sunny Aberdeen and I'm more than likely to see some S/RS Audis on the roads!

    I've seen 2 others S3's give a little nod, but there is also someone near to where I live who seems oblivious to anything like that!!

    I think that as these cars are rare enough to warrant a nod, wave or (ahem!)flash!!

    I always do anyway!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    I get some people who smile (and occasionally wave) and then other people who just have no idea. I think it's Sod's Law or something that the closer to your house that they live, the more oblivious they are /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif There's another S3 *just* around the corner from our house, and they never wave or anything. Tsk!

    QuickS3 lives almost opposite me, so always get a wave/nod/flash... Both members of the S3 club!!

    Seems to vary a bit for others round here though!!??

    Every single S3 owner who's seen me, gives me a flash ooer.
    Which is pretty amazing, esp in London, when people usually dont give a damn (look at TT owners... so many about, who cares).

    That's because they're amazed that 2 MGF's could possibly be reliable enough to both be on the road (as opposed to at the side of the road) at the same time! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif
