Default Hello from another car enthusiast!

My love of cars stems from my early childhood, a good part of which was spent holding a light bulb for my dad and lying underneath an 1961 VW Beetle with a mind of its own. I still remember that its brakes never used to work, nor would the side indicators! But my love story with cars grew from then on....
I spent a considerable part of my childhood and growing up years in the UK, although the cars we owned were nothing much to write home about (an orange Mazda 323, a VW Polo and a Honda Accord-all from the early 80's).

Driving is one of my passions and there's nothing more exhilarating than a long drive, on a good road, in a good car. I currently own an Alto LXi, but I have had the engine tuned to make the most out of it (but it still churns out a measly 46bhp!). I always think that a good driver can make more out of a bad car than a bad driver in a good car. My dad's car (which I drive as often as he lets me) is a 1.6 Fiat Sienna 2001 model.
My other huge passion is travelling, which is good because it compliments the above.

I will be honest here & say that my technical knowledge with regards to the inner mechanical workings of a car are very limited. But this I try to compensate with enthusiasm & slightly better knowledge of cars and their handling.

All this would probably sound normal and mundane to all of you here. The reason why all this gets me 'raised eyebrows' can be attributed to my being a female!

I'm delighted to be part of this group of like minded people and !-- D(["mb","\n

Welcome to the forum Scorpiodame (Why this signature, if I may ask?) It seems the forum is attracting quite a few female members now & the numbers are rising everyday!

Good to hear about you love of cars, what tuning have you had done on your Alto?

P.S. Just read your father is also a member here, nice going!!

Hi, Hello and Welcome to Team-BHP. Enjoy your drive through here.

Alto LX stock puts out 47BHP. After the mods, it should've gone up a bit. Are you sure it's 46BHP now??

Splendid attitude, and even better upbringing...what with the beetle around. Why the scorpio in your nick? Is that a favorite?

I bet that didnt occur to 90% of the people here!!

Welcome aboard scorpiodame, and as i mentioned in another lady's intro thread, you should prove yourself at speedrun (there is a womens category and i believe THEY provide the cars!)

Of the two cars that I remember were provided free.....were San Storms and Tata Indica sports.

No wonder the women stay away

Thanks for the welcome! I'm sure I'm going to enjoy being part of this forum!

I'll try & answer all your q's at one shot....

Godfather - Sadly we don't have the beetle anymore! Still miss her!!

Iraghava, GTO, Sreenivass, Rehaan - The Scorpio is for zodiac not the suv. Not that big a fan of the suv!!

I was gearing up to participate in the next Speedrun, until I scroled down & read the bit about the free cars given!! I might as well use my own Alto, in that case!!!

Speedzac - Your right, the Alto is 47 bhp not 46! My mistake!

As for mods, would you all have any to suggest specifically for my Alto, or is that a seperate thread somewhere that I should be looking for??

Well, financially, you won't gain or lose anything except a few litres of petrol. Registration fees etc are applicable in either case. And driving your own car is always best.

Why don't you start your own thread in the Modifications section?
