Smile Hi All...

Hi All,
I am Prashanth. I am from Bangalore. I am one of those "IT folks" you keep talking about.
I have been visiting Team-BHP for the past year or so.. I always used to lurk here. What I liked about Team-BHP was the staggering amount of information and people willing to help on this forum.
I have always been fascinated by cars and have recently bought my first car, a Ford Figo.
Well, thats all I can think of at the moment.
Happy motoring and many happy miles to you all.

What a coincidence! I am new here too. I have been following T-BHP for a year too. I have recently bought a Ford Figo too!

I posted the review for the same on http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...go-petrol.html (Booked Toyota Etios Petrol, ended up buying Ford Figo Petrol)

Hope you also write a review of your Figo and that too better than my review

I have been reading your thread, you have written very well, your review is very detailed.
I will write a review, perhaps this weekend or so.

Greetings and welcome to TeamBHP.

I'm Nitin from Hyderabad and am one of those out-of-work IT folk that you rarely hear about. What kind of development do you do? One thing is certain - a couple of months on this forum and your office IT folk will be calling you one of the "Automotive folk"

There's a lot of modding in the Bangalore automotive scene so you can learn about it here and catch up on the TeamBHP meetups in Bangalore too.

Hope to see more of you on the forum.

Joker, Devilcry,
Greetings and welcome to T-BHP from another newbie.
I don't own a Ford Figo, but I used to own Figo's illustrious father - the Ford Fusion+, and absolutely loved it. Hope the Figo turns out to be equally enjoyable for you guys.

I'm trying to get to 100 posts so I can tell folks I'm a regular at TeamBHP but the counter is 'stuck' at 95. I believe the posts are only counted if they are in the main automotive forums and not in shifting gears, introduction etc. which are mostly non-automotive areas.

Thanks mayankk.. Yeah, figo brothers. Nowadays, I see a lot of Figo's on the roads. It may result in a "Figo Family"!!

Thanks mr.sinha..
I loved the Fusion too.. A big "hatchback", with lots of space and a huge ground clearance. .

i don't know how posts are counted. My number says '3' but I have definitely done more than 10 posts by now (new ones and replies). Maybe the Moderator who will be moderating this post before publishing it can clarify. Thanks.

Welcome aboard the_joker, Devilscry! After the sign-up, my productivity at work place has gone down for sure! Going by the way, not sure when team-bhp site would be added to Block list.

Btw, this is the first thread I'm posting in this section welcoming newbie(s).

mr.sinha, I have read your intro post. very nice. Rated 5*. You have two cute kids out there!

About the post count, as mentioned by nitin, I think our post count increases only when we post in any of the main forums. The corresponding link is here.
Team-BHP - Team-BHP FAQ: Troubleshooting

I believe rather than the quantity, the quality of the posts count.

Quote:
Why is my post count number not increasing?
It may take the system upto an hour to update your post count or membership level. Also note that posts in some of the forums do not add up to the post count. The excluded forum sections are:

1. Introduce Yourself.

2. Shifting Gears.

3. Collection of the best threads.

Your published posts under this section or under "Shifting gears" section are not counted. Only the posts under main automotive sections are counted. A significant number of your posts were in your fabulous introductory thread, hence the disconnect in numbers.

Thank you BabySchumi.
Oh, btw, did you mean my 2 kids standing by the Ford Fusion, or you meant my other 2 cuties: the BMW and the Kawasaki?
