Default Sawadee Khrap from a BHPian

Hi Guys! This is Archit Kishore and just got accepted here. I am a student right now in Noida and live in Delhi though. Before all this, I have spent my whole life in Bangkok (18 years!). I came to Noida in July 2013.

I used to own a 2006 Honda Civic 2.0E back there but it got sold recently since my parents decided to move here too. It was different from the version of the Civic that came to India since it had the 2.0 liter engine from the CRV plonked in to it. And it came with 16" alloys which never came to India. All I can say is that the car was a hoot to drive and I do sorely miss it.

Here in Delhi, I have got a 2011 Hyundai i10 1.2 kappa Automatic. I do not really like this car as it is kind of small and cramped. The automatic gearbox is pathetically slow and the ride is little hard. But still an okayish car to use for the errands and stuff.

We are planning to buy a bigger car here within 2-3 months more in the likes of the XUV500 or Aria or Safari Storme.

Looking forward to some participation in some discussions here.

Cheers!

Hi there, Welcome aboard.

I have never been to Bangkok, hence your post made me curious, what is the legally permissable age to drive in Bangkok?

Sawadee Khrap to you too (complete with a proper wai) !

Anybody who has cut his teeth in Bangkok traffic will be entirely at home in India ! Looking for a learned treatise on the merits and demerits of Thai and Indian lunatics on the road

Hi Archit, welcome to the forum. The eagerness you had and the excitement in your acceptance could be seen all over facebook!
Good luck for the car bud.
