My wife got a mini (BMW version !) shortly after they were launched a few years back and new owners were encouraged to flash or wave an acknowledgment to fellow mini owners.

I have had my XF for 2 months now and havent actually seen or passed another while out driving but if I do should I flash them? Or are we above that sort of thing in this forum ??

I always acknowledge fellow XF owners with a friendly wave but, i'm sorry to say, the majority pretend they haven't even seen me. They are a miserable bunch, the ones that i've encountered! Sorry!

My wife has a MINI Cabriolet and we bump into some of the most cheerful, happy and friendly fellow MINI drivers that you could imagine. It's such a contrast to some XF drivers. Still, i'll keep acknowledging them and hope I bump into some friendly ones.

Since March I think that about three XF drivers have acknowledged my wave, most others have appeared to be oblivious to my presence. :(

I'm up for it - I've not even seen my own XF yet! Being an ex scooby owner, it was common practice to flash fellow scoobies.

The first one !!!

After almost three months of waving to and flashing fellow XF owners, somebody actually overcame their inhibitions at the weekend and waved back.

Now at least I know there is someone else in my neck of the woods who is pleased to acknowledge a fellow XF'er :)

Do you know that he does come from your neck of the woods? It might be that he has just decided to tour the country looking for a sociable XFerr. Certainly, in the 9 months I have been in my XF I can only think of three drivers that acknowledged me. One, as it happens, was in Burford High Street, so there may be two or three XFrr's in Oxfordshire. :)

Hi
May have been me, I was in Oxford over the week end, did indeed wave at a XF. My wife think's I'm mad, and I got very excited as the driver waved back. Cant remember the colour, but mine is Frost Blue.
