Hi Nice People,

I am Rahul from pune.
I have registered on this board about a few eons back...but did not visit often
after that.

Pardon my bad netiquettes for not introducing myself when i Registered.
I am a regular on RDDREAMS and in some serious love with bikes .

I was working as Test Engineer with DaimlerChrysler India Pvt Ltd for a year and thats when i started appreciating Cars as objects of desire.

I currently drive a 2003 Indica V2 diesel (Boring) and occasionally my Dad's Optra.

Will be more regular after this

Hello Rash,

Goodness you took a long while. Good to have you here. You sound like a person that can contribute greatly to this forum.

Tell us about the year you were a test engineer for Daimler India. I am sure many would like to hear more about it.

Welcome to team-BHP!!
