Seems like BMWs outnumber Hondas here. Everywhere you look, there's another. About a month ago I was driving through the Presidio (just outside Pacific Heights) and rolled up to a 4 way stop simultaneously with 3 other BMWs, all less than a year or 2 old. Flashing lights in that situation, also the universal sign for 'I see you, go ahead and do whatever it is you were going to,' would have been quite a setback for the insurance industry!

: Hi all, I've had my 323 E46 for about three weeks and find myself flashing my highbeams to oncoming 3 series bimmers (including E30s and E36s), but not many at all return the greeting. I'm originally from Europe, where drivers of common driving machines (BMW,Porsche,Alfa Romeo,etc.) signal each other as a greeting jesture, sort of acknowledging another fellow enthusiast. However, in the US this does not appear to be common-practice. I have a total passion and enthusiasm for BMW's performance, doesn't everyone else?

: Does anyone else here flash their lights at oncoming Bimmers?

: Please share your thoughts.
: Thanks,
: -Chuck
