Default New englandahs: do you courtesy wave?

Is there a lot of Impreza courtesy waves happenin' in NE? I recently moved to PA from warwick, RI and I cant get any response. I'd at least like to know that when I travel back home that NE will welcome me or at least acknowledge the impreza state of mind!!

I usually only wave to wrx's and sti's that look any bit modified. There is just too many subarus out here to wave to all of 'em.

I used to wave at all subaru's, but most of the time i get the "WTH, who are you look".

Now days, I wave to those who wave at me.

We need a NESIC sticker to stick under the drivers side mirror. Same location on each car.

Easy to "SPOT AND SHOCK!"

I always wave (no sticker) unless the guy is driving like a tool, or gives me an arrogant-ass look. that's rare, though.

blaise... just watch out for cross-posting the same topics (This is also in General). They don't like that on this board.

That said.. the shocker works and is the NESIC wave.

If I see a modded subaru (be it of any model), I usually wave. However, most times I'll wait to make eye contact with the driver before waving...I don't want to look like an absolute loon after all.

I did the shocker once, and got a look back. Sad, iwas hoping for a or a ...

bwahaha, fun with emoticons.

I wave, rarely do I get waved back. There are just so many subaru's that not all of them are going to be nesicers.

one time i was driving straight through a t-intersection and a wrx driving up on the other road beeped at me, my immediate reaction was that i was about to get t-boned and my stomach twisted, i was so pissed and relieved when i realized what was happening. they didn't get a wave or shocker that day, i was too busy checking my boxers.

I wave frequently, but wait for the other driver to see me. Also, if they are obviously modded, I will wave right away.
