Default You can live in a car, but you canít drive a house

Hello everyone,

Would like to start my contribution to this forum by expressing my sincere gratitude to our moderators for opening the doors of T-BHP for me. Thank you all. Feel immensely happy and proud to be member of this family.

I am a 1981 model (33 years of age), working with a bank, based in Bangalore. Apart from my wife and son, my life revolves around one more person Ė my car. Currently, I own and drive a 2009 model Hyundai Accent Executive. I learnt driving on an Ambassador initially and then moved onto Maruti 800. I did find an early answer to the question - How to drive. While I did evolve into a car loving person, its after i came across team-bhp, that I became more expressive on the question Ė Why we drive.

I look forward to an exciting journey of productive discussions and events with this group from whom there are lots for me to absorb and learn; there by enabling myself to add value to our group.

I can now feel the revv! And I love it.

Welcome Accent Martin to Tbhp!

Now I know the reason behind usage of "Accent" in your forum ID, you are a proud owner of the Hyundai Accent. Is it the Executive model or the Viva?

Have a great time here and we all look forward to delightful and intelligent contribution from you from now on.

Do share some pics/ report of your Accent with us soon.

Drive safe and take care.

Akash

Welcome to the forum. One of my former colleagues used to say, "we can have 4 flats in a car, but you can only have one flat in a flat (apartment)".

Welcome aboard Accent_Martin! Nice handle that

I have a soft spot for the Accent which was the first car I bought all by myself. I had a grey GLS that I drove for 7 years. What model is the "Executive"- I forget.

Anyway, time to hunt down a new car, perhaps Do scout our "What Car?" forums if you need to. Looking forward to seeing your threads.

@Accent_Martin,

Welcome aboard sir.

Accent_Martin ala Aston Martin cool one.

And your intro also looks short and crisp. I too own a hyundai Accent which I bought 3rd Hand. Always love it and still maintaining it as it was the first car I bought all on my own.

Executive is just an extension of GLE that went out of production in 2009. Few changes that I believe to have taken place was the marginal increment in bhp by 2 horses. Don't know if that made a difference. Executive got a different shade of grey unlike the midnight grey of GLE. Both had leather wrapped gear knob and steering wheel.

Its as good as saying - 'Same difference!'

Yes Noopster, will be immersed in 'what car' forums for a longer period

Thanks again.
