    When i am out in the Triumph and i see another classic car, we tend to acknowledge each other by way of a friendly wave

    In the Z3 I see a lot of Z3's if i see another Z3 i tend to also give a friendly wave but in return i tend to get a look

    as if i have just grew devil horns.:ymdevil:

    I wonder why this is?

    Z4's are the same, waved to loads, an only one has responded in the last 3yrs,
    And a nice lady in france waved and followed usfor a few miles .
    Perhaps there too posh to wave, lol

    You are meeting actual BMW owners rather than zed owners, big difference, especially on the motorway!

    And another thing, why is it when you offer someone a ride in your Z do they say " You're not putting the roof down are you? " It's not just Z's either, I've had this with other cars too. I wonder if sometimes they feel vulnerable sitting there out in the open on full view so to speak.:confused:

    So glad I won't often run into this problem as I've never seen a Z3 around or near here. Saw a couple of Z4 over the years. Last Z3 I saw in person was in British Columbia 3 years ago. At least you know that you're not the problem. They are!! JIM

    We were flashed by a black Z4 when we were on the Rutland run last Sunday, but I sometimes forget which car I'm in, thinking why haven't they waved, when I'm actually in the Merc!!! :confused:
