Usually just tip a nod of the head providing they are looking too :-) - so fairly subtle and fits with the British understatement way of doing things over here.

No I don't.

If I did, I'd probably be greeting 1 in 20 road users... the K seems to be everywhere at present, since one of the local dealers began offering ridiculously competitive PCH and PCP deals and one of the hire car companies at Belfast City Airport took an extraordinary amount of Ks into its local hire fleet.

When I picked mine up I hadn't seen many K shapes around.... now there bloody everywhere.

Old Volvo's yes when aim in mine. But Astra owners no

A lot of rental companies and fleet management companies bought them. You'll find that if you're greeting them in the UK, you'll be greeting pissed off business people who had their lovely 5 Series swapped out for an Astra.
