Default Finally! Destination Team-BHP

Hello everyone!,

Its always a great experience with team-BHP. I've been a passive user (browser) of the forum for the past 5 years and have learn't a lot from the senior BHP-ians. Just reading through threads have guided me on my ICE upgrades and various other performance upgrades. I just thought it was time to share my experiences and stories.

To start off with, I'm 25 years old and had a brief 3 year stint with Amazon.com in their catalog division. I've just managed to untangle myself from the corporate shackles 6 months back and take a long break. Since then, have been traveling, reading and hitting the gym every single day.

These are the cars I've had the chance to drive (Haven't bought my own yet! :P)

Hyundai Accent GLS 1.6 (Sold)
Maruti Suzuki Swift 1.3 Diesel 2010 (Present) - My prized possession!!!
Volkswagen Vento 1.6 Diesel 2012 (Present)
Ford Figo Diesel 2011 (Present)
Hyundai i10 2014 (Present)

Working in the corporate sector for 3 years, never got the time to look after these beauties. Now, I have all the time in the world and looking forward to tuning them up a notch with the advice of Senior BHP-ians!

Looking forward to learning a lot!

How cool! How did you manage this? Do you intend to get back to the corporate world, or start your own company? The last time I had no schedule was probably back in college . Now, I can tell you what I'm going to be doing on Friday at 3 pm (I'm serious).

Nooooooooooo... Never GTO! Not back to the corporate world! I know this might sound weird, but my life has taken a complete 180degree. I am preparing for my Central Govt. exams. More interested to work with the govt. Don't spend too much of your time in the corporate line buddy. At the end, it really isn't worth the hype (at least from my personal experiences).

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Well... nothing big dude! As I was telling GTO, it just wasn't really worth burning yourself out and sacrificing most of your time in the office. So just decided that this where I get off. These past few months have been great. Getting a lot of time to catch up with my interests, especially CARs!!!
