Smile Hello beautiful people...

Roaming around here for some time. I am amateurish as far as cars are concerned, but have learnt a lot here - Thank you all Team-BHPians.

My experience with cars:
During my college days, one fine morning I suddenly decide I need to learn car driving and I go join a driving school. I wanted M800, but the guy there tells me "If you learn on ambassador, you can drive any car in this world!" and I say okay. The timing was 5:30 - 7 in the morning. First 2-3 days went very well and my trainer tells me that I am the best student he had ever seen. On third day itself, I could drive on highways with changing gears, applying clutch, brake everything. From 4th day the trainer was sleeping next to me, and I was enjoying every bit of driving without his intervention.

On 6th day, as usual he was sleeping and I was driving at a new location. There was a dead-end with a right turn. Just when I was about to turn, suddenly I see a guy on a scooter infront, and out of confusion, turn the car left too much and see one electric pole right infront - BANG - I hit the pole and before my trainer knows what happened, I disappear from the scene !!! and that was the last day of my driving school.

Then after college, I get so busy with my job and my life, I had no time to think about cars.

Now, I am self-employed. I do online trading at stock markets and have a beautiful wife. She works at IBM and life is cool. Again, one fine morning I suddenly decide we need to learn car driving and we both go join a driving school. But this time, we finsh this without any incident. This time it is Santro and M800 and both of us got the driving licence.

It is almost 3 months, and we just can't decide which car to buy. We are running behind a used Alto to a brand new Swift ZXI and every thing in between !

BTW bombat in "Kannada" means superb.

Bombatt Sir---- Bombatt agidhe introduction saar..
Hope you'll enjoy your stay here.
Looking at your choice for buying a car,
I would suggest you to go in for a new Swift ZXi.
Remember Alto has got a very good resale value in Bangalore

Hello Bombatt knowing iRaghava - Skoda Bombatt is the name of either a car, a tyre an adult movie. I am inclined to believe it is the first.
Welcome to the forum - your style of narration is very easy and your humour is matter of fact and very mild. I enjoyed reading it very much.

I hope you make lots of friends - & don't forget to read all the rules

Skoda Bombatt aka Skoda Superb is a car sold in India! And it didn't do very well hence, my comment on the same!

Hi Bombat, welcome aboard, get addicted, see how your budget overshoots to the sky (ICE/buying car), make lots of great gurus of audio here as friends, and pls pls make a count of the usage of ALT+TAB in day (switching between online stock and TBHP).. and ya refresh button too.. These r some good things to happen in future for you, coz it happens to me daily .

Cheers.
