Default Good afternoon Team-BHP

Hello to all members,

To resonate every new members emotion - Thank you for approving my application to be a part of this unique community of Automotive enthusiasts.

I am Ameet Gokhale a 39 years old newbie on Team BHP (It is a rare honor to call one self a newbie at 39 so thank you). I grew up abroad and moved back to India in 2003. I am an entrepreneur and an avid follower of the forum. I live by a statement my 6th Form Head of Year had said to us on day 1 of school - Drive is the one thing you control! I have applied this not only on my professional and personal life but it also fueled my passion for all things with a motor.

I would like to thank Sawnand Inamdar and Subodh Kulkarni for introducing me to Team-BHP.

My current garage houses: A Chevrolet Cruze LTZ (Black Mumba as christened by Subodh) and a Maruti Ritz VDI
Past: BMW 735i, Mazda 626 GLXi, Ford Galaxy 1.9 TD, Ford Sierra Sapphire

The 2 cars that I would love to own are: Jaguar XJ-S and a 1956 Morgan Roadster.

Welcome aboard Ameet!

Can we expect Ownership Reviews from you on the Black Mumba and the Ritz Diesel?

Thanks,

Thank you for welcoming me Coolman. I will certainly scribe my experiences with these 2 vastly different rides. I hope I have something different to write than the vast number of pre-existing posts.
The one thing that I can mention right away is the fact that the Cruze after completing 10,000 kms has started giving me much better fuel efficiency (gone from 12 pre the small landmark to the current 14.5).

Finally! I get to see you here online as well now!
And yes, the pleasure was all mine. The amount of times Subodh and I have literally bored you with car talk, getting you converted into a hardcore autoholic was only a matter of time .

All the best with the journey here, and hope to meet you as a "BHPian" soon .

Oh yeah, like others have mentioned, I would love to read about the Bimmer and the Mazda too.

Welcome Ameet to Team-BHP. Glad to have another Punekar on board. Have seen the pics of your Cruze on Swanand's Goa travelogue.

@00nuts001- Support team reviews and publishes newbie posts with an average turnaround of a day or so. Request your patience!
