I'm going to give waving a try again - it's certainly dropped off recently. It's up to us enthusiasts to try to keep the wave alive!

Flashing

The only Mini I have flashed at was the only other red countryman I have seen in my first month of ownership,good to get a wave back.
Also get a lot of waves when driving my Subaru STI.

Nope. It's no good... waving is dead in the UK (well in Shropshire anyway).

Get a few waves or at least cheeky grins from other MINI drivers in Moscow , still a rare-ish car here I suppose, but if not rare certainly more unique.

Lol! The roads here are like something out of need for speed, no lane discipline, no signalling, bumper to bumper high octane thrill ride (when not in endless traffic jams). Really fun driving here but I miss cornering!

Normally it's just before they remove one of your digits...or kill you.

United-States Wave to Mini Drivers

I agree. I live in Florida and the majority of Mini drivers are older (like me, 60+) and I guess they can't see to wave. The younger ones are too busy, which is just being young. I drive a Jeep Wrangler and 90% of other Jeep Wrangler drivers will wave. Makes you feel like you are in a "private Jeep world"!
