Hello fellow ActiveE driver (Electronaut in BMW Parlance)

It’s always a thrill spotting another ActiveE on the road…

After dropping off the better half at her office, I was heading to Glendale, and lo and behold another ActiveE in front of me at Venice and National waiting for the light to change.

I got their attention and did a friendly wave…Not quite the recommended one on the BMW forums – How to greet fellow ActiveE Electronauts… proposed, South Park Style

Needless to say, our small community of BMW drivers are not quite the A**H#&$ BMW drivers that are out there.

They rode with me on the 10 Freeway toward downtown until they exited somewhere before the 10-110 interchange…  It was nice riding with you SM License Frame AE driver and passenger!
