Default Hello World

First of all thanks to the moderators and admin for granting me membership. I have been an avid follower of Team-BHP for a while now.

I am an entrepreneur living in Pune. Was in the States for about 10 years before moving here in 2004. I am not much of a technical person, but have done a whole bunch of road trips in the US and in India. I have a blog that i keep adding stuff to. Driving is a passion and I have owned the following cars till date:

1. Toyota Corolla H-3 [2004] still have it done 145000 KMS and it still drives like a charm.
2. Toyota Innova Petrol [2006] sold in a year as it was not being used at all.
3. Wagon-R AXI [2006] Had it till last year had to give it away. It was a beautiful car.
4. Mitsubishi Outlander 2011. Love this car. Bought it after reading reviews on this website. Guzzles gas... but thats the price u pay.
5. Just ordered a Volkswagen Polo GT TSI, once again after reading reviews and posting on this site for help. Yes I did receive help from someone, even though I do not remember the name anymore as I did it via Facebook. Thanks a million for the help.

Waiting to get my hands on the GT TSI.

In my travels.. I have had a chance to drive a few beauties and some beasts.

here's a list:

1. Hummer H1-Alpha.
2. Range Rover Sport
3. Range Rover Discovery
4. Infiniti QX80.
5. Infiniti Q60.
6. Corvette Stingray.
7. Volvo XC -90. [recently]

To name a few. I will not be able to give out any technical specs on these cars. But each one of them is worth driving. Will start posting pictures of all these once I see how this post goes.

thanks a million.

Welcome to Team BHP iyerlax. Ugh! Didn't get that handle correctly. What does it mean?

Nice choice of cars you owned there. Please start an ownership thread for your Outlander.

His name is Laxman Iyer so the handle name is the reverse 'Iyer' + 'Lax' = Iyerlax!

That line pretty much applies to me, except the city. Were you part of R2Iclub by any chance?

How did you get to drive a H1?

How did I miss that? I was so much worried about the handle that I failed to see his name.

Apologies Samurai, what would the R2I Club mean? I am assuming u r saying Return to India. Correct me.

Drove an H1 in the states.

Yes, Return To India. It is a very old forum (support group), originally started by Sify, then continued by members (like RRK) when Sify dumped it.

I was active in it between 2002-2007.

You can point to your external blog once in your intro. But if you are starting a new thread, we expect the content to be on TBHP rather than an external site.
