    Lightbulb The Jimny Wave

    Just a note to all the new shape Jimny owners. There's an unwritten rule that you have to wave/greet/thumbs up/acknowledge another Jimny/SJ. We've been doing it for years, now that you've finally joined our club we kindly ask that you reciprocate the gesture. Be lekker.

    GV's sometimes return the wave, and the box shape Vitara's of yester year usually also do. Tannie's never do, but the Oom always does. (he bought the car for himself anyway, whether he says it's is wife's car or not.)

    New jimny drivers look at you funny when you wave at them.. Here and there some get it.
    I have had Landrover owners wave at me.. Dunno if they where just happy cause there is something else on the road they can also overtake with a very long down hill with wind at their backs...

    Haha Sounds like my dad. He has the new Jimny and is a Landy man so he spends a lot of time waving.

    Also noticed a lot of the new gen don't wave, I guess some of us take more out of owning a vehicle than others.

    My girlfriend was driving the SX4, and got a funny look when she waved at a Jimny, it took her a little while to figure out why.
