Finally on Team-BHP
Finally been approved by Team BHP is a feeling unprecedented in one's life. It's probably similar to passing the CA exam. People who got through are as clueless about how they got through as the ones who couldn't. After being rejected thrice, finally being approved and being with like minded car lovers is a great feeling. So thank you to the upper echelons and won't let you down knowingly!
I am based in Delhi and Gurgaon running between the twin cities daily. Have been a car, quizzing, food, travel and movie lover for ages. Cars have been a childhood passion and still get emotional about the fact that I lost my 600 matchbox car collection of every car of the 70s onwards models. For the real world, I learnt my driving on a Padmini, moved to the Gypsy & diesel Ambassador both at the same time. There was a M800 also somewhere in between but the memories are still about the Gypsy and the road trips on it. Sat on the spare wheel to see my first tiger in the wild. At the turn of the millennium it was the Zen which everyone just loved in the family.
With the pay checks swelling i bought my first real car, the Santro Xing in 2003. Had to sell it in 2012 to buy the Brio base version. Couldn't look at my Santro when it was taken away, couldn't face my Basanti (her name) as she didn't believe that I could let go her. She had the tantrums and would lose steam when my wife drove her but never any issues for me. Then came a second hand Honda Civic, first gen 2006 model. Very reliable but by then I had grown up fast, wanted bells and whistles while she could only offer a great mind blowing engine mated to an awesome suspension. Nothing else much. Last year, Off she went and then after lot of trials, road tests, acre of web page crawling including this site, last six months, I have been the proud owner of an Arctic Blue Mahindra XuV 500. Done 13k kms so can do an extensive first hand long term review of the beauty beast.
For all who had the patience to read, hope you didn't find your five minutes wasted. Cheers....
