    I've read various comments in this forum about extending the courtesy of a wave if you see another Tesla owner on the road. Many have stated its happening less and less.

    I am glad to say that while driving home last night from downtown Orlando on I-4, a Blue (stunning) Model S caught up to me in the next lane and the woman driving it waved with a big smile and of course I returned the courtesy. I had a good day at work and it ended up with a great drive home and a wave. It kept me smiling all the way home. If you see a white Model S on I-4, don't forget to wave because I certainly will.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    Hi Gary,

    I always wave.

    If you're up close and personal the Tesla Nod works too.



    Keep waving and nodding! :wink:

    I had a Roadster driver wave at me today when I was in my Roadster on CA 280 at my exit, Bunker Hill Drive. Rare for two Roadsters to cross paths even in the SF Bay Area!

    Sigh. Living so far north, it's dark here by 5pm at this time of year, such that while I am more frequently seeing Teslas when driving home from work, it's usually so dark I can't see the other person inside the Tesla anyway. Had one pass me on the freeway today, going just a couple of MPH faster than I was so he slowly crept by in the adjacent lane. I looked over and waved, but he had his eyes fixed on the road and never saw me. Probably safer that way I suppose.

    Hi Glen,

    Some Teslas flash their lights as an acknowledgement.

    Here in Florida most of us add tinting to our windows. I deliberately ordered a high performance, but a light tint so people can see me and so I can wave to fellow Teslas. After all this is my 15 minutes of fame and I don't want anyone to miss it. :redface:

    At my daughter's school here in South FL...so many parents have Tesla's...sadly, I don't think I'm going to get too much love.

    I'm in Daytona Beach, so there are fewer Teslas. I hope to have one of the first Model X in the neighborhood.
