Lightbulb I just got Stung!

Hi all the BHPians.
Here is my first post, thread and intro on Team-Bhp!

Got to know about this great site about a year ago when I attended a Team-Bhp meet @ Trivandrum. Got to meet some good crazy BHPians. I was always mad with anything automotive and I have a very crazy cousin who eats and drinks cars. He is a member here and is known as SpeedZak. He took me to the meet and my first stint with Team-Bhp had begun then.

Myself, I was bought up at Dubai till the beginning of this year when I was admitted to a college for my higher studies in Medicines. yes, I am trying to become a Doctor and I hope I attain success in this venture.

I had a lot of good life with some nice vehicles. In Dubai, I owned a Nissan sunny myself. My dad used to own a Skyline, Subaru Impreza, Range rover and a Land Cruiser. He sold these one by one as and when we grew up and were no more kids. How bad I miss my childhood days! Now he owns a Porsche Cayenne S and yes, I do get to drive it under his strict supervision. My brother owns Nissan Patrol V6 and he has added lots of ICE and bling bling to it. My GrandPa owns an S class (Last generation) and we have bought a new S class which is yet to arrive in our garage. All the cars are parked in one compound and it is a definite feast for any car fanatics' eye to just walk in to my house. Our other rides are a Honda Odyssey, Toyota corolla, Toyota Previa and Yamaha 350CC Desert Buggie!

In India, we just took delivery of a Montero. Our other vehicles are Toyota Innova, Qualis, Zen, 800, Sumo, Armada, Standard 2000 with an Isuzu 3L diesel engine and an Ambassador.

I've never spent more than a few days continuously in India and this is the first time I've been here for so long. Thank god! Team-Bhp has given me some good company and some good friends. This is a very great place to be. And sometimes I don't miss the automotive madness I had in my past life at Dubai.

A very big thank you to all Bhpians for keeping such a good community alive and especially to all the moderators for maintaining the quality of this great place.

I am still a learner in the world of automobiles. I hope to know many things from this site and soon, will be buying something good for myself here. My eyes are spinning around the Swift. But where is the 1.6 sport??

That's all for now folks. Hope you all liked my Introduction post.

Is that the Banshee ATV? Its engine is based on that of an old bike, which is still worshipped here in India.

I dont think its coming atleast for a year... They may even scrap the idea. But the 1.6 would be one mean power to weight machine

I would suggest picking up a used baleno which is also a suzuki 1.6

Baleno Baleno Baleno Baleno !!!
