Greeting Other Mercedes drivers on the road

someone mentioned in another post about the brotherhood of Mercedes Drivers ( like the Harley folks) ..well, i always greet another Mercedes Diver the way i was tought by my Dad....
(copied message from another post)

Let you all in on the GERMAN way of greeting one another in a Mercedes ( and yes, they ALL call them That, not MERC or BENZ, just to clear that up). how do i know you say?..Dad drove a Mercedes all his life..worked in Sindelfingen, so have i.. OK..enough said. there is two ways to greet .. close friend = Light horn ( same as trying to move a slow ass driver out of the passing lane on interstate) other Mercedes drivers you meet on the road?. you extend your LEFT index finger on the 12 o'clock position on the steeringwheel .. like a " hi, ah, i see you"..not the middle finger, the INDEX..on the left hand!....there ..one free lesson of the secret code of ..oh hell ..secret is out now..LOL..you all have fun driving your great cars....Tommy...

In my home town of 140.000 every MB owners greet each other by raising their hands hello. I even get some other W202 coming by my office for some tech questions and showing me their cars. Or sometimes i meet new owners at the MB dealer/garage.

Not many other MB owners around here, so we won't get to use that "secret" very often. But we do greet fellow motorcycle riders/owners.

Good to know! Haven't had a "secret code" for many many years...

Don't believe everything you think
