Smile Hi There ! Joined Today

Came across this forum when I was doing some reading on Tyres. I was impressed by the material availble / referenced on this forum. The posts seemed relevant and made by serious people. I guess my kind of forum.

I work in the IT industry and have moved around the world and have driven in may countries (rental cars !). Personally I have been driving from 1985 and have graduated from a Maruti 800 - Zen - Honda City - Honda Accord to a Mercedes 220 CDI which is my proud possession currently.

Hope to get to know a few other CDI owners !

Welcome to TBHP. I'm sure you'll have a great time here. Our admin also has a 220 CDI. Check out his threads..

By the way, nice name you have for this forum.

Welcome aboard !
I presume your workplace is in/around sector V. There's a bunch of us 'garipagols' here too - who would love to meet you and your C !

There's a Kolkata meet being planned on July 22nd. It would be nice if you could make it.

Guessed it was you sir !
I know of only one person around here who has moved from the 1.5 EXi (red with gold lettering?), to the Black Accord to a Merc in Sector V. And no, I've never worked in your organisation ! Immaculately maintained cars all of them. It's just that I've drooled over each of them over the past decade

Gotta love that 340NM of torque, eh? Glad to meet with another 220 owner and would love to share tips and experiences. You can check my review of the beast here.

Welcome to Team-BHP, Garipagol. See you around the forum. Out of curiosity, what does Garipagol mean? The Calcutta boys seem to be familiar with it.

@ GTO - Garipagol means one who is crazy about cars...

Garipagol = Gari (gaadi) + pagol (pagal). ... so did you get the "bong connection"?

Hi GP
Welcome to the forum. 800 to 220 - quite a climb. Do you have a chauffeur's job available?

Hello Gadipagol, very nice ID you got there! After a bit of head-scratching I did understand & it made me smile!

Have fun!
