The grey Jimny in the pic is mine. When I came out of the supermarket this afternoon the blue one had appeared next to it. every time I go there I see at least one other Jimny in the car park and have seen as many as four more in addition to mine at one time. On the road leading down to the store - about half a mile walk from the house - there are two houses with Jimnys parked in the driveways.

Whenever I go out in the car I always see other Jimnys. I literally cannot remember a drive out when I didn't see any others. When I lived in Hertfordshire I would go a week or two without seeing a single Jimny.

Haven't seen any Gen 4s yet, but Gen 3s are everywhere I look! Lots of Vitaras too.

And whether the blood be highland, lowland or no,
And whether the skin be black or white as the snow,
Of kith and of kin we are one, be it right, be it wrong,
As long as our hearts beat true to the lilt of a song.

Yes it must be.
Yours looks just like mine, even down to the roof rack, so good job my holidays in the New forest this year. Not that many in Stoke on Trent, now officially seen more Gen4 s :woohoo:

Being rural round here there's huggings of Jimny. At least one gen1 and a gen2 then probably 30 or more gen3 and now a minimum of 5 different gen4 at various times. They are very popular round these parts. Getting thm to wave back at me is surprisingly difficult but I'm working on it.

I only ever saw one in-the-flesh Gen 4 so far and that was at the dealer who told me I'd have an 18 month wait! LOL. I'm happy with my Gen 3 facelift for now.

I see a couple of Gen 2s around here occasionally. One is really f*cked - I'm surprised it's still drivable going by the state of the bodywork. Can't remember last time I saw a Gen 1. Must be years.

The waving thing. There's one guy I see sometimes when I go between St Austell and Mevagissey. He seems to do the acknowledgement thing. Some others respond if I do it first and about half sail past obliviously.

The most enthusiastic response I ever had from another driver was when I had my brand new, black 2001. I was on the way to work one morning when I saw headlights flashing in my RV mirror and heard a horn beeping. The driver of a new, gold-coloured Jimny behind mine was waving frantically. When we got to a bit where two lanes filtered into one, she suddenly overtook me. As she went past with her windows down she just yelled "Jiiimmmnnnyyyy!" and then cut in in front of me. She kept waving until I turned off up a side road. Nutter. :laugh:

Hi Buddhuu, I am in Penzance and having major Jimny issues - is there anyone around here you recommend, a specialist or forum member who I could talk to? Two garages have said there are numerous probs (still investigating fully!) and is unsafe to drive, neither garage wants to touch it! Kate
