Default DNA News Article on Indian Car Forums (including Team-BHP)

Source & Full DNA Article

Quote:
In 2004, on Valentine's Day, Team-BHP went live, becoming the first independent forum on the Indian car scene.
Quote:
"After all, who knows a particular car better? Someone who has owned that model for five years, or a so-called expert who spends merely five hours in it?" says Rush Parekh
Quote:
"Enthusiasts typically enjoy more as they not only consume the forums but contribute as well." explains Banwari Lal Sharma, AVP of marketing, Car Wale.

I agree with the comment by the nay-sayer in the article that in the end it is the buyer's choice that counts, but he forgot that forums such as this play a crucial role in narrowing down the possible options to a handful from which the buyer finally makes a choice.

Neat. Did they print exactly what you said in the interview? Sometimes, these reporters put words in interviewee's mouth!

Great going for TBHP for being recognized by the media.

GTO aka Rush - By any chance did you mention the strenght of the forum members too. Would be nice to know if BHP is the leader in that segment too.

A couple of colleagues in the office too are now hooked to BHP and confirmed that TBHP forum made a great difference during the process of car selection and buying.

Another feather in the cap for TBHP. Great going. I wish DNA had used "TBHP" in the headline of that article.

One more achievement in the journey towards being the most expanding automobile forum. T-BHP is soaring higher and higher day by day. Proud to be a member of the country's largest automobile community.

A big clap to the moderators for maintaining the quality of the forum even after so many years. Whereas other forums and review sites have only degraded over the years, team bhp continues to reach new heights. TBHP deserves to be the number 1 forum truly redlining the Indian Automotive Scene. I Just wish in a few years tbhp becomes the go to guide for every Indian with access to internet. 3 cheers for TBHP!!!

Feels so good to be part of this blessed community.

It's been an absolutely delightful experience to be able to watch the consistent and unswerving commitment to quality by the mods over the years that I've been associated with team-bhp!

One word, mods... Dedication! And everything else follows... it's no surprise at all that people sit up and take notice of this place.

The best part for TBHP is that one need not be registered member to browse content. Hence actual users are more than registered users.

Way to go Team-bhp! Its always great to hear something nice about things you love!

A big round of applause for all the mighty mods out there for making sure that the threads / topics / discussions are worth reading! Not to mention all those members who contributed to enhance the content available on the forums. If you are looking out for anything related to automobiles, I can confidently say that not a single minute you spend on the forum would be a waste.

If your near and dear ones, this is indeed the absolute resource you should suggest!

The best part - it's not just information about new vehicles or concept vehicles. On this forum, one can get to know about classics, popular vehicles of yesteryears, learnings, tweaking, undocumented features and so much more - all from owner's perpective.

How many media programs have such a breadth of focus? Way to go - TBHP!

Always felt proud being a part of this esteemed community. This event reinforces the same.
As stated by many it serves the public and it is no small task in maintaining the quality of the forum. This could happen only with dedication and commitment shown by the moderators. Maintaining consistent quality over the years sets this forum apart from other automotive forums.

Cheers!
