I have a suggestion

As Doblo drivers we're few and far between - although working as I do around Heathrow I probably see my fair sharel - so let's be friendly.

If you see another Doblo, wave to the driver - I don't care if it's a van or "the one with windows" like mine, we all suffer the same affliction.

Hey you never know, someday someone might wave back.

If ever I see a dead Doblo by the side of the road - I'll stop and help.

Re: I have a suggestion

I won't be doing much waving then, I've driven from Manchester to London on more than one occasion & not seen a Doblo or even a new Panda, these Panda's are more rare than the ones in China.

We have been waved at by other Doblo drivers ever since we bought it!

I'm going to start waving to fellow Doblo drivers from now on.

Re: I have a suggestion

I have been from Manchester to Leeds this afternoon & only saw one Doblo & one Panda, which is now going to start two new threads.

Re: I have a suggestion

I suspect that popularity may depend on dealer locations. Around here (NE London/Essex) there are loads, particularly as they are popular for taxi firms, and also for diabled transport.

Re: I have a suggestion

You get a sort of knowing look from fellow combi owners here on tyneside, where as the trade users give you a sort of curious look , "they bought one as car? "

We had a good experience on holiday in France summer 05! A duck egg blue jtd over took us doing well over 80mph and they tooted and waved! and gave a lovely smile.

Re: I have a suggestion

Well - I have a fellow Doblo van driver down the same road.
His is the SLX model (I think thats right!)

I am waiting for them to mate one night to make a runabout for the other half !
