Default Greetings from Costa Rica!

Hello fellow Team BHPers. Let me introduce myself. I am from Costa Rica, and I discovered Team BHP while doing research for our new hatch purchase on this side of the world. Our choice was a blue Maruti Swift so that is the main reason I got here.

I am 42 years old, married with one 10 year old son. I am an industrial engineer and work in San Jose, our capital city.

I love cars and I love photography, although I consider myself an amateur.

To be accepted in Team BHP has been an honor and I hope to contribute as much as I can.

In the meantime I invite you to check out my first thread, the review of our new Torque Blue Maruti Swift which we named Blue Garuti !

Welcome to the forum, GarotoCR. Your swift AT thread is really well compiled and I loved the pictures, especially the ones of the car glistening in the rain.

One quick question - why the name Blue Garuti?

Welcome to the forums and thank you for sharing an informative thread so soon! The Swift is a consistent strong seller here and it's great to learn more about the car in other markets. The variant, feature and engine options at your disposal are quite enviable.

In Costa Rica they pronounce "M" as "G".

Blue Garuti => Blue Maruti !
(Just kidding)

Quoting from the ownership review

"We call my son Garoto (child in Portuguese) as an affectionate nickname. He is 10 years old and insisted on the color of the car to be blue so we named the car in his honor Blue + Garoto + Maruti = Blue Garuti. Her license plate will be GRT-XXX as a result! "

CR is Christiano Ronaldo?
