It is a strong community full of very loyal followers. I admire it.

I must say however, not many of us wave. Since having my GTI, I have had one other GTI driver interaction on the road. They were very enthusiastic at that, and were trying to make up for all the tough guy sour faces I see. Honked at me even Thank you black GTI S APR stage II owner, you were very kind. I myself wave at my fellow kamerades, I usually get the dead, motionless hand at the 12 o'clock position in return. Just curious what others felt, do you just wave at GTIs like yours? Or are there other stipulations? Lol. I just don't want to be one of two guys who wave.
"Beetles"

I saw a Beetle driving wildly in traffic during my commute home yesterday.

I somehow approached then passed this Beetle; it was stop-and-go traffic at that point so I glanced at the driver to get a look at the maniac behind the wheel.

To my surprise she was already looking at me and was so excited to see me. It was awkward so I quickly looked away. I felt like an ass and now she probably thinks GTI drivers are snooty

I almost T-boned a red Beetle who had rolled through a stop sign while merging into the road I was on. It was so close that I had to swerve into opposite lane to avoid hitting them. I glanced at the driver and it was a man with a mustache. Now I don't trust any Beetle driver with a mustache.

That said if I saw a VW driver waving at me I'd wave back. That has only happened once though (that I noticed.)

I drive into Road America today and not 5 seconds past the gate a R driver waves to me in my lowly non-tuned 18 GTI SE. Respect.

Received a couple of "V's" or haves from GTI drivers in the past few weeks.
A guy in an R flashed me a "V" just today.
An R.
So no uppity R attitude.

Welp I saw a Beetle inching out into the intersection (red light for his side) today. Looked at the driver and it was a long haired dude with a bushy mustache
