OK, (and please see if this is true), but the next time you see a Bini the following is likely to be correct:

the driver will be a woman
she will have coloured hair, mostly bleached blonde
probably have her shades on or perched on top of her head
won't flash you back (or acknowledge you) if you flash her

... look out .. it's all true!

I'd say I'd agree with the majority of that. You do get the very odd one that will flash, these are normally old classic Mini drivers who know the score about acknowledging fellow owners.

did anybody see the BINI driver point at us this morning?!? 'oh look dear its a Mini oh and another' x13!! lol

Most people ignore me when I flash my lights, mainly because they're too dim for people to notice lol

I've got nothing against Binis and when they first came out I flashed them for a couple of months but very very few acknowledged me so I gave up. Might start doing it again though, dunno.

By the way, I believe the club membership records reflect Craig's observation of 99.9% (allowing for 0.1% error).

Sarah wants to change her BMW 318 next year and quite likes the idea of a Bini. She'd love a cabriolet but I don't think we'll be able to afford one of those. As long as it's a Cooper Sport...

Now, lets see... Sarah driving a Bini...

the driver will be a woman
she will have coloured hair, mostly bleached blonde
probably have her shades on or perched on top of her head
won't flash you back (or acknowledge you) if you flash her

Woman - check!
Blonde - check! (although natural blonde, no colouring!)
Sunglasses on top of head - probably - check!
Flashing - we do plenty of that Wink

When out patrolling in the ISU van I flash classic minis when possible but they never flash me back. Why's that? Do these owners think i'm a Bini?

If the driver is male;

Its his wife's car,
He bought it for his daughter
He'll be late middle aged
He's thinking about reliving his youth.
He won't flash.
