    acknowledging other astra drivers

    I was wondering what others opinions were on acknowledging another astra/coupe/gsi etc drivers when you see them on the road. Does anyone else wave or flash?
    i always think its the right thing to do, but am never really sure whether to do it or not!

    I remember one time I noticed a green Astra parked on the side of the road and as I got closer it had the same bodykit as me and the guy was sat inside so as I got passed I flashed my hazards and he flashed me back, was quite cool considering I didn't know him.

    But, I don't think it's a good idea to flash every Astra you see people might think you're crazy.

    I do it on the bike but not other Astras.... they'd probs get the wrong end of the stick and think Im pickin a fight or maybe something else

    Saying that Ive done it a few times but thats only cos we were admiring each others motors.

    **ok they must have had bad eyesight b4 u say it **

    I know 2CV drivers do it, and Mini drivers do it....and Beetle drivers do it, but if I was going to flash every astra I saw I'd probably have gone through more bulbs than Charlie Dimmock by now.

    Thumbs down from me on this one I'm afraid.
