Saw a Sargassi(?) green GTV this afternoon between Great Billington & the A505 ( only a few miles from Autolusso ). Waved but no response.

Just thinking, have posted 118 sightings to this thread. OK, some conversations and some were probably the same car, so lets say I've spotted 80. But AFAIK I've never been spotted. I drive about 2 hours a day weekdays in one of the most densely populated areas of the country.

Did you get one of the limited edition Spiders fitted with the Klingon cloaking device? There's a 'how to' guide somewhere to tell you how to disconnect it (removing a fuse somewhere just underneath the photon torpedo tubes I seem to remember).

It sounds like a classic sign of London to me, people don't talk to each other up there, so I reckon they probably aren't friendly enough to wave back either. It's lucky you're not a BMW owner, if they have a forum, they probably have a thread called "I got the middle finger"

Another spot! Red Spider near Lakeside Shopping Centre yesterday afternoon. Flashed, but no acknowledgement.

I think that's rather a generalisation about 10 million different people.

A Vespa!

To be fair, it is generally correct. Greater London is one of the few places where saying 'Good morning' to someone in the street generally gets answered with nothing.

People like to have their own space, their own impenetrable bubble, especially so in London.

Try having a friendly chat on the tube; you'll be ignored like you're a loon.

true about the tube - but then, half the people on the tubes are commuters from places like surrey.
but real London is more a series of villages and as friendly or unfriendly as Guildford or Basingstoke.

Hi mate, I'm in Ingress Park.

Of my 3 Proteo Red sightings, 2 had different plates, so I know there's at least 2 knocking about this way. I didn't catch the plate of the one on Thurs.

I have a Black Phase 2 Twinny by the way, be sure to give the wave if you see me!!!
