Default Newbie from Cochin

Hi,
I am from Cochin - work in the tea industry. Have scanned through the threads and find that I am an oldie (in terms of age).
I love cars - though am not too clued up technically. Currently drive around in a Honda City ZX CVT. Since I don't have a driver, I find the auto transmission an absolute boon. I wonder why the AT option has not become popular - arguments about FE notwithstanding. I used to drive around in a Honda City 1.3 DX earlier and the mileage I get in city conditions is virtually the same for both the cars - 9 kms (with A/C on all the time).
Hope to learn and enjoy myself in this wonderful community.

Welcome

Its not often that we get a newbie from Cochin (unlike Bangalore where its raining newbies every day) so this calls for a drum-roll!

Welcome aboard wilful and govigov! We do have quite a few TBHPians here in Kochi!

It would be nice if you folks could join us when we all meet-up next.

The high-priest of Kochi TBHPians (Zak) has been missing for a while. We should have a meet as soon as he is found

Loooooooooong time no drive :(
