Default New feather in cap - "a TBHPian"

Hello friends,

I want to buy a new car and started searching on net for reviews and I landed on Team-BHP ("The Treasure of Information"). For past 9 to 10 Months, I had been a silent reader of various threads on Team-BHP. The research and reviews of various fellow bhpians gave me new perspective in car buying. Before going to particular car's dealership, most of the information about the car, used to be with me. This helped me to judge car's suitability w.r.t. the requirements. Finally I booked car on 3rd June 2011 and urge to share my experience cropped up. So I applied for membership and today it got through. I would like to thank Administrators for giving me this opportunity.

About Me:

I am born, brought up in Kolhapur (Maharashtra) and at present I live with my family there itself. It is located on NH4 (Pune-Banglore) about 250 KM from Pune. Kolhapur (also known as "Dakshin Kashi") is a place of religious importance due to famous "Mahalaxmi Mandir".

I am a post graduate from I. I. T. Madras and after doing job for few years, about 12 years ago, started a Software Development Firm. We develop custom made software for Banking, Manufacturing and Courier Management sector.

This is brief introduction of me. Soon, I will post about my research, buying process and experience I had with various dealership. After delivery I will post detailed review of the car.

So long till then, take care and happy revving.

Welcome Whitelion to T-BHP Family. Good to see BHPian from a relatively new location - Kolhapur. I mean new on the forum.

Would the mystery about which car you finally booked be revealed in a separate thread?

Now any of you folks on the Hyd-Goa or Pune-Goa trips, if you get stuck in Kolhapur, you know whom to call and where to land up!

See you around.

Its misconception that Kolhapur has "Thasaka". Normal food here is not that hot, its hotels in other location serve very hot food under the name "Kolhapuri".
As far as people are concerned we are Polite, Soft Spoken and Very Very amicable when we are dealt with same qualities. Any deviation from this from other side turns us exactly opposite. Please visit here and enjoy our hospitality.
Its standing invitation to all.

Yes it seems that I am only one from Kolhapur, though Kolhapur RTO stands in first 10 as far as No of vehicles registered is concerned. I would like to make people around me aware of T-BHP and have few more members here too.

Oh, sure. drop in any time and we will celebrate.
"Kolhapuri" non-veg food is very famous.

To all, who have shown eagerness in knowing which car I booked, Its Ford Figo TDCI ZXI, white. Detailed booking and initial Test Drive report after I complete the required quota for Posting Thread and Delivery of Figo.

CaptainSlow called his figo "Black Donkey", When I test drove Figo I felt that "Donkey" Analogy does not suit figo at all. but "Lion" analogy suits Figo better. it has got grace, weight and power of lion and it roars too. It does not bray like a donkey. Its is not as swift like "Cheetah" but moves enough fast and has Royal looks. So I have decided to name my Figo as "White Lion" and hence my Nick.

Anytime sir ! Just that whenever I read travelogues, folks were always found wanting in order to cross Kolhapur on to the Konkan side.

Hence the comment !
