Default Finally, I'm in Team-BHP and posting as a member

It was a great surprise to see my gmail showing a Team-BHP mail last week Friday morning. I did face a membership rejection in my last attempt and after reading several intro posts, their patient wait for 7 years to make it into team-bhp left me thinking to foresee another rejection. But not this time, I was jumping with joy and dancing seeing the mail from team-bhp membership as approved. I was proudly displaying my "Approved" membership mail to my office colleagues who are avid car enthusiasts. It is like a feeling of getting into IIT or can we say MIT?


My name is Vikram Venkatesh, a software consultant in Bangalore. I was fascinated with cars as 3 year old with any toy purchased for me has to be a car.

I still possess a collection of Hot Wheel type cars from 1983 which is even now treasured by my parents (63 cars to be precise).
Had my first real experience of driving a vehicle at age of 6, where I managed to move a stationary vehicle (our old amby). Though, I don't recall any of it, but it would have been a harrowing one for my family.

My 16 years driving can be summarized as below:

1. Learnt Driving on a Premier Padmini 1986 and used it for a good 6 years.
2. Toyota Corolla 1999
3. Toyota Crown 1998 - Automatic
4. Toyota Vios 2006
5. Hyundai Santro eRLX 2006 (My Dad uses it)
6. Maruti Wagon R 2008 (SOLD)

Courtesy Karnataka for its weird tax rules on outstation vehicles, I finally had to surrender my Maruti Wagon R to avoid an RTO catch for paying up taxes and am left without a car for the last 4 months.

Have been using Team BHP forum for a good 2 years to read reviews and ownership experiences and has really helped in finalizing my next purchase, it's a Honda Jazz - Sunset Orange with Magnum Honda Bangalore and now am waiting for the last 4 months to get a delivery for the same.

Thank you Team BHP for approving my membership. Looking forward to do my best in contributing to this forum and learn from experts.

Welcome aboard Vikram . Do run through the rules before posting (if not already done).

I have a small collection of miniatures too. I was really fond of collecting these models and playing with them as a kid. It's been years since I've had a look at that cupboard of mine. Will probably re-look at these in a few days, just to get nostalgic.

Congrats on your new Jazz. When is the delivery expected? Do start an ownership review after enjoying her for a couple of thousand kilometers. Strangely, I haven't seen too many new Jazz-es on the roads nor did I see too many ownership reports here on Team-BHP.

Thanks S2. Yes, delivery date got pushed to another month (Nov) likely, he will confirm it in a day or two.

Yes, there are not much Jazzers atleast in and around my area. By getting mine, it might interest others. Let's see.
