Default Team-BHP is powerful

Hi Guys,

Maruti was publishing ads in Times of india [bangalore edition] even till 2 weeks back posting 94 bhp for a baleno even though about 6 months back with euro-III the power came down to 91 bhp.

In one of the threads on this forum http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ference-3.html (Baleno power difference), this unethical practice was bought to light and people started to discuss, with 2-3 days of this discussion guess what, maruti didn't quote 94 bhp for baleno, not even 91 bhp, they simply stopped mentioning the power of baleno ..... he he.

3 Cheers to Team-BHP, its indeed becoming the watchdog of the indian automobile industry.

I am sure there will be many more copy cats of this site

12-May-2006 ad 94 bhp ad: http://epaper.timesofindia.com/Defau...eSize=3&Page=5

17-May-2006 ad after the issue was discussed on Team-BHP see the new ad !! the power of baleno is not mentioned at all.

Erm in, in between pattingourselves and watching peoples dogs,
we should not forget that we hang here to have fun and gab about cars and discuss them to death.

The moment you start getting delusions of being all powerful ,m is whe you kinda start falling

As GTO once said (indirectly) the auto co's os look here and see the serious discussions and reviews, and make note.
But lets not get carried away by how smart we are

True. To quote from the number "War Paint" (from the album "Presto" by Rush):

All puffed up with vanity
We see what we want to see
To the beautiful (/ powerful) and the wise
The mirror always lies

Note: beautiful and powerful are used in different stanzas with the rest of the words remaining the same.

Those in power dont talk about it. Those that are unsure of their power are the ones that do the bragging.

Hey, Well it seems that the Fiat India dudes don't seem to be logging onto the site or else I'm sure they would have improved their after sales image ... Maybe one of us should guide them to the forum ..

Cheers

Team bhp is growing with the exposure increasing and more active members from all parts of country ,the automakers are definitely watching team bhp as source of feedback without real time interaction with the customers and potential customers,they also get the idea what people are looking into cars these and how they can make a fan following for their products and a lot of endless things,i feel its really very helpful for them.for team bhpians its an advantage because we are heard like never before and we can tell manufacturers what we feel like and they dont have to rely on autojournalists as they dont represent much people.

team bhp has a class of its own and here are true stories of people who have experienced their cars and have written down abt it here.

there are people here who know what they are talking and not just bragging.

there are people who have worked to make this forum fool proof an that is enough for outsiders to read what is written about and revise themselves.

atleast they have changed their stand and if team bhp has been instumental in bringing abt this change, hats off to it.

teambhp is and will remain one of the best forums, no matter what and there is nothing wrong in being proud abt it.
