Default Hello Team-BHP

Hi All,

I go by the handle dupe, which has no relation to me, just a user handle I like. I'm from Kerala currently in Australia. Business Analyst by profession working for an Oil Company. I left Kerala for higher studies in early 2000's, since then been in Australia. I do visit quite frequently, one can never ignore where you came from.

Growing up I had the privilege to be around some big machines thanks to Family Business .Being a member of a large family I been blessed with chances to be around a different Makes of cars and Two Wheelers ( Legendary RX100 & KB125 being the pick ).

My First car in Australia was a Mitsubishi and then was upgraded to a Holden Commodore. Currently Driving A Toyota Kluger, also weighing up my options for a Nissan Patrol.

I have been a visitor since 2011 and tried to register couple of times this year. Thanks to Moderators for Letting me in this time. Looking forward to the time here.

Have a good Day
Dupe

Welcome dupe! Unique choice of handle , but as long as you aren't duped, I guess it's okay.

Now we're talking!

Guess there was a serious shakeup in the Australian market recently, with relaxed import duties. How's that affecting the local scene? I read about manufacturers shutting down local ops.

Great to have you with us.

No kids as of yet prepared in advance hehe.

Trying to be a family man and leave the wild younger days behind, commodore is one hell of a car, but once it cross that 180-200k mark all the bushes and lot of under body parts needs changing. Labour is very expensive here costs more than parts to change it. Do it yourself means more time , which due to job commitments was very hard.

Its very easy to import from Japan. Market is flooded with imported Japanese cars - Patrols and Land Cruisers are well in demand especially for outback driving. No other brands lasts or I should say is reliable, its harsh and rugged.

Patrol's new model is a disappointment from my point of view, was thinking of buying a late 200 model. Toyota, Ford, Holden all of them have shut their plants now its all straight from the boats.

Hi dupe, welcome to Team-BHP.

Interesting to see you are in Brisbane, which is where i am located too. In fact, we do have a few TBHPians around here, and have staggered meets at times. Most recent one from this weekend is mentioned here :

While we're here, just a quick glance through the posting guidelines would help you get started with Quoting posts correctly, etc. Link : Guidelines

Looking forward to seeing you around, and possibly at one of the meets.
