Not everyone gets the wave thing....trust me. I've had people go out of their way though to let me know they've seen me. IE. flashing their high beams, beeping their horn at me, or waving at me. I saw a out of state STI on the highway the other night and got in front of him after he flashed his lights at me. We had a mini STI convoy driving legally and respectfully down the highway. Probably made people look at us and do a

Yes, I've noticed that too. The waving is really reducing in recent years. WRX drivers ignore me. I actually get more love from EVO drivers now...

I have noticed that I actually get more waves from the 08 guys now. Seems like I get ignored or snubbed by the other guys.

I wave most of the time. The newer (2008-2009) versions i have a harder time for some reason though. I get a wave back most of the time.

I think you should always wave at other wrx's!!Also I hate it when some young punk who just got his wrx gets beside you and revs his engine trying to race you.We both have the similar cars,and know what they are capable of thats why it's more mature to wave out of respect of someone who loves the same car as you.If you want to race another wrx go to the track otherwise be respectfull.
