Default 7 is the number & it's a delightful Thursday

Hello to all the members here.

I am Apoorva Bhandari, from bangalore & finally a member of TBHP.
I chanced upon this site while searching for Xbox 360 (Imagine that). That was in 2009, later i kept on coming to know more about new cars. TBHP helped me while i was searching for reviews of Vento that was going to replace our aging Santro Xing. A good buy i would say with some troubles with A.S.S.

I have been stalking this site for ages searching for cars, Vento service woes and lots of review reading for friends.(They ask my advice for their buy and i read TBHP and get back to them ). After years of being a silent lover, i decided to finally propose aka register. But TBHP like the proud beauty (No Offence, just an expression) she kept on rejecting me on & on. I knew that i will have to keep trying and finally today when i woke up, the first thing i saw was the approval email. My first thought was "Am I Dreaming". I recheck and knew that i wasn't dreaming and finally it has accepted my proposal.

I am very happy to be a part of this community and would love to learn a lot for experience of the seniors and fellow members.

PS: The thread title is no spam. This was my 7th attempt for registeration & the delightful thursday is what this day has become. After so many attempts i realised that members approval happen on thursday and hence it always use to be dreadful thursday. Not Today!!

I never knew approvals are given on Thursdays. That's quite some sentiment for this rather "mechanical" forum. I cleared the "exam" in my second attempt and now, it seems I fared pretty well, considering your six attempts. :P

I differ on the mechanical part, I am sure members are not here just because of mechanics. They share the passion of cars and hence will be bit sentimental.

And on the topic of attempts, I would say I was wooing a lady and like any other guy who is in for long commitment, they tend to falter in the initial steps and I am in the same league.

Yeah! I accept. That's precisely why mechanical had two quotes around it.

That's a very interesting way of looking at it!

Glad to see that you are finally united with your love (and the 80,000+ other men that share her).

Hope you have a great time on the forums.

Cheers,
R

This morning, I was composing a note on my mobile to welcome you. But suddenly all the typed message was gone when I got a call.

Nevertheless, Hearty welcome to TBhp, appu.bhandari and wish you have a great time here and hope to see your activity with your reviews and comments on the forums.

All the best, appu.bhandari.

Thanks Wildy, i was impatiently waiting for getting approved only. I would love to share my Purchase & Usage Experience of my new Activa I (Dealer told me that i was among the first few in bangalore to have it ).

I am not sure whether i could post a review while i am still a newbie. Can any experience member help me on that?

Thanks Again

Yes, of course you can!

Do keep these points in mind

Also, start crafting your review in the Assembly Line (The "Assembly Line" Forum section)
