Looking forward to your unique helicopter flying experiences.

I was so stubborn about getting a membership that I couldn't stop myself to try after every unsuccessful attempt. I was just guessing what the approving authority would have thought after reading the lines, or was wondering whether the lines that I wrote were being read at all?? A bit of psychology I accept. But nothing big time.

Am I missing a point about flying choppers here?

I definitely look forward for the meet up!! I stay in Srirampura. Let's speak offline (on PMs) and decide the place and time.

The Safari mod thread is coming soon. I have made an outline for the thread and am yet to do the write-up.

Hi,
you should name your profile "Gajini+1" which would be more appropriate. One of my friend is chasing you on number of attempts and i hope he gets through soon.
Off Topic -
Shouldn't we respect the perseverance and grant them membership for those who has given genuine multiple attempts (10 or 15+). My theory is based on "the person is trying to become a member for a reason and he/she believes that this forum is right place for the purpose". Mods....This is my humble opinion. If inappropriate to express here, please remove the post

Guess you are a record of sorts, shows the magnetism of a true auto fan. I can imagine the look on you when you read that membership approved email... dream come true I guess.

Looking forward to your Punto 90’s review. Me on the verge of booking a P90 too, though have booked a Swift ZDI, I am planning to cancel that. Sadly, till date my experience with fiat pre-sales folks is not that great. Anyways my stories apart, WELCOME ABOARD.

Welcome aboard! At 18 attempts - you should start a thread on number of attempts and whether you hold the current title!

Looking forward to your Safari mod details...

Hello everyone,
To tell you all a bit about me, I am Srinivas a Software Programmer by profession and a Research Scholar(Computers and Automobiles) by Passion!! Born and brought up in Mysore, I am in Bengaluru during the week to earn my bread and at Mysore during the weekend to sit peacefully and eat it
I have treaded over most of the paths that come after “ www.team-bhp.com/......” in the past 4-5 years of my free time at office and after 17 futile attempts have been approved a membership of this elite club/forum. I would first like to thank the Mods for waving a green flag this time and at the same time would like to mention that I wouldn’t have given up even if my 18th try would turn unsuccessful. (Now Mods, please don’t revoke my membership just to check my Perseverance )
I used to shuttle between Mysore and Bengaluru with my Swift for the past three years and now that it’s sold, I use the Modified Tata Safari ’99 for the travel. The other car in stable is an Opel Corsa GSI ‘04. The Opel and the Safari are soon going to get a new comrade this Diwali. I have booked a car that I fell in love with, right from when it was launched and the love continues to linger even now. Yes, you have guessed it right!! It is a FIAT GP 1.3 Multijet 90HP in White robes (Bossa Nova White) and is scheduled for delivery on October the 28th. My other interests lie in wildlife, photography and off-roading.
My heart is saying “Write on”, but my mind says “hey!! this is an introduction, so let’s keep it concise and not bore the readers”. Though I know there are innumerous threads on the FIAT GP, I plan to come up with a thread on “Decision making, booking experience, PDI and initial ownership” and a thread on "How the Safari was Modified" soon enough.

Till then,
Cheers and have a happy weekend!!
First of all I would like to congratulate you for your perseverance and then your membership.

18 times!! (OMG! )

That proves you are quite a die-hard automobile enthusiast and were willing to go at any length to be a member of this forum (speaking of which, I myself tried applying for a membership and was lucky on the 5th time and all the time I thought that the Mods were biased. @Mods: Now please don't revoke my membership upon reading this line. )

Also worth congratulating is your writing skills which can be judged from introduction and I hope that your experience about your new purchase (Fiat Punto) will be interesting to read as well.

All the best for both you and your new car and wish you many happy miles ahead!!!

Thanks Sidhu!! I do not call this "one of the best", but would say "BY FAR, THE BEST" forum in our country!!

Getzlover, how I wish I would change my handle to Mohd. Ghazni!! While what you say about perseverance is right, I feel the seriousness about content is a strong foothold due to which Team-BHP stands where it is today!!

When the approval email arrived, I have almost called up 30 people in my phonebook to share my happiness!! I was so excited

You would surely be seeing a Punto thread from my side. Though I do not intend to write a review of the GP 90HP (as every single nut and bolt in the GP have almost been disccused in here!) , I would definitely write about my ownership experience.

Thanks mmxylorider. I intially thought about it. But then, there might surely be atleast a bunch of them who have made more attempts than me!!

The Safari thread will be coming after my GP initial ownership thread!! Hope I am not disappointing anyone?

Thanks Mark 5. There resides quite a die-hard automobile enthusiast inside me but at Team-BHP, there's a whole lot ahead of me and it's a pleasant re-assuring feeling to be a member here!!
There is nothing much in my writing to be lauded. Though I do not carry a big vocab in me, I just ensure that I write correct, grammatically. "KISS-Keep It Simple and Stupid" is my way

Salute you Nomad. 18 attempts!! Vow. Have a great time

I agree with Shubz - discouraging such genuine enthusiasts may affect the quality of our forum
