Default A warm hello to everyone

Hello BHPians.

My name is Manju and I am a newbie on the forum. It is a delight to be on Team BHP. While i really appreciate the diversity that Team BHP forum embodies, I would like to thank Team BHP for allowing me the company of this new fraternity.
I pursue Indian classical dance out of passion, love to travel, to explore new cultures and ways about people. But for my bread and butter, I teach Chinese at Jawaharlal Nehru University and the challenges are ever-growing
I shall soon be going to take the delivery of my new car Ford EcoSport Titanium (O) and thereby will continue to seek your reviews/suggestions/observations. Thank you all.

Welcome to the family Manju and a hearty congratulations on the ecosport. I myself am looking forward to my Polo GT by the end of this month.

May i know the pro's on how you selected the ecosport over the others in the category. If you can be specific, it would help.

Cheers.

Thank you everyone for the welcome.
@CalypsoGT: Well, that is precisely where I started: Polo GT TDI, and later test drove others like Renault Duster, Mahindra XUV, Bolero ZLX, Scorpio (Automatic) Mahindra Thar and Ford Ecosport.
This was when I had fixed my mind for a mini pickup but eventually just went for EcoSport for it’s a SUV, has extensive safety features, has a certain road presence and just fits right into my budget. I had been driving a hatchback for more than 6 years and I really wanted a change.
The grille upfront looked aggressive to me at first, which i now think is kind of futuristic. Beside this, Polo GT didn't give me a kick, even when i shifted Automatic to Manual. I felt that car had a bit of body roll. Maybe i had decided in my mind already that it’s a no for a hatchback. Apart from finances and large boot space for my dog, it's the overall ride and handling of the car that got me to say yes.

When is your eco sport arriving? my day for delivery is tomorrow. I was hoping to get it today but due to the RTO being closed continuous two days in Karnataka, i have to wait one more day.

Its very hard to control my urges.

BTW i love the fact that you took into consideration your Dog as well when you were selecting your vehicle. I am a Dog lover myself. Missing my 2 babies back at home.

Hey,

That is so nice, you must be very excited.

My EcoSport is very much here, i was away from Delhi for a few days, took off right after taking its delivery. I will get it registered tomorrow or day after, its been on temporary registration. I will surely upload pictures of my car soon (with my dog in it).
Well, you have a great ride with Polo GT and enjoy the beauty. Is it red ?
