Default Sweet Taste Of Success

Hello BHPians,

Its great to be in finally. Was trying to get through the membership process since one year, applied for atleast 4 to 5 times but couldn't get through.
Then changed my job and didn't apply till this new year.However, the love for cars within me urged me again and applied again,to my surprise got an approval mail yesterday and was on the cloud nine.Gave my roomies a party for this success.

Currently I am driving Grande Punto 90hp - tuscan wine which i bought in Jan last year and have done 18k KMS.On its first birthday, gifted my car few gifts first being a Race Dynamic DieselTronic Chip - now it just leaps forward and its like a storm and second being 3D Kagu Mats . Have started to draft my long term ownership about the italian beauty, will open the thread soon.

If i have to summarise my ownership of GP90 in one word then it will be "TOP CLASS".

Here are few pics :-)

Welcome aboard, Scofield (Prison Break? )!

Your Punto looks great; can't wait for the ownership thread! Will be interesting to hear more about a Punto 90 with a tuning box!

Cheers!

The roof is covered with a matte finish vinyl sticker, the feel is similar to the company fitted vinyls we get on the pillars but just the shade is different. Wanted to tame the shine of the car so opted the matte finish.

TBHPians - *spam-bot alert*

A few pointers to others who don't know Maulik
  • He is known to attend more TBHP meets than most of the regulars.
  • He is also known to initiate a large number of informal chai-tapri meets at the throw of a hat!
  • He is known to ratto-fy the current threads and know in&out what each member was arguing about in any on-going discussion!
@Maulik, if that was the case before you became a member, god save us Puneri junta, now your membership is approved.

Welcome aboard!


P.s. That's the first time I have seen your car with the roof matt! Looks good!
P.s.s. Scofield???

So, the oldest "Yet to be BHPian" of the Pune gang has finally come aboard!
Welcome Maulik.

As Ninja has already mentioned, this guy knows the forum in and out. Not even we members would know, as much, as this guy knows (on the happenings on the forum)!

Ninja, other Puneri junta is a tad bit lucky! God save us.... this guy works with us .

Maulik is probably more familiar to some of us than a lot of so-called "members"!

But persistence pays, man! I'm glad you kept trying and great to have you here.

heman- not only did you spot Mr GJPunto himself (hey that would have made a nice handle! Who on earth is Scofield? ), but a couple of us actually confirmed it on that same thread!

Gosh- the next Pune tapri meet is going to be fun!

Maulik Bhai,

Welcome to the Forum!
All them ideas that you've been discussing - now here's your chance mate


Like I said, now you have a "handle" you can show off at the Pune meets



edit: seen your car in the flesh and its an absolute beauty. Next time we meet, gotta TD the RD chip.

welcome aboard buddy, we have a lot of things in common -

1) We both have punto 90 HPs.
2) Both our cars have black vinyl on roof.
3) We both purchased our cars in Jan '11.
