Just back from Basingstoke this afternoon.

Was passed by a lovely Red Covertible with Black Stripes. The person driving it gave the most enthusiastic wave I ever seen - surprised they stayed on the road.

Due to the weather we both had our roof up :(, but it's meant to be lovely tomorrow :)

Probably just excited to have seen another convertible on the road. I don't have mine yet, but I haven't seen any cabrios on the road.

I've only seen one on the roads so far - a BRG/G Cooper S with the roof up. Quite surprising, as it was a beautiful morning here in Virginia Beach.

Can't wait to get mine.....

I certainly wave and flash like never before... but those with hard topped MINI's seem a little less enthusiastic to wave back now... :(

Its probably just the uniqueness. Back when there were only a handful of MINIs on the road, everyone waved, because they all understood the point. To have a convertible now, you ordered months ago, were on a waiting list for months before, so you really wanted the car. You have that connection now.

Unfortunately, they'll probably stop waving so fanatically once there's more on the road, but enjoy it while it lasts.

I think they do.

I was in mine on the M6 going to Cumbria and this yellow and black MCC drove down the side of me and start beeping his horn and waving... :D

If you think convertible owners are obsessive ( which we are ) you should see 2 LY minis pass each other, I'm suprised we stay on the road there is so much arm waving going on:biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Oh the joys of being unique:cool: :cool:

mini owners here in Los Angeles dont wave at all :( I could count on one hand the number of waves i've had returned and i've all but never had anyone wave at me first (though I probably never let anyone get the chance to wave first :))

I agree about the lack of waving but I am going to start waving more often and see what the response is like :D

I am a big waver! If the top is down, its both arms out the top....steering is assigned to my right knee and my left knee operates the headlight flasher!

:biggrin:

No offence but in my experience Nottingham drivers are so ignorant. So you might aswell start:)

Not sure about that but I know there are loads of them. I have only just moved back down here this week and sadly without the MINI which is still in Leeds - no one seems to wave up there either :rolleyes:
We'll have to educate them :D
