Default Hello from Cochin

I've been hanging around and pestering BUSA about his VDI for more than a month now, but hadn't introduced myself because i didnt know how to start a new thread
Just returned to india after 4 years in the UK
I'm going to be shuttling between cochin and coimbatore till I decide where to settle down(I'm a doctor)

had made a brief appearance at the last CBE trackday and loved it. i'm going to be religious with the trackdays from now on.

BTW- my family is beginning to mutter that TBHP is some sort of a cult as i'm always on this forum

Welcome to TBHP

Why is it Swift Diesel and Accent CRDi instead of Swift DDIs

Cochin has an airport parking lot that doubles up as a race/autocross track on occassions. Coimbatore has a track. This should make your decision easier.

Tell me about it. Ultimately they will come around. Like my wife who was passing comments on ergonomics, NVH + plastic quality AND checking out rear seat legroom with the front seats all the way back yesterday. She KO'ed the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.

Yeah, sometimes I think Team-BHP needs a new punch line.

"The Addictive Indian Car Community".

Welcome to Team-BHP. You'll find fellow Kochinites all over BHP. Enjoy your stay and I hope you'll make a lot of friends.

Cheers!

And please go through the rules and announcements sections.

1. Its not my ride. I got a test ride thanks to fellow BHPian California Knight who made sure an SRT8 was available that day.

2. Its a highly overrated powerplant. This was my first SRT experience and I must say the powerplant can easily be mistaken for a diesel from the NVH characteristics. My wife thought it was a diesel.

3. The rest of the car isnt much to talk about. Poor plastics like the Safari, wind squealing/whistling through gaps in the driver's door, etc etc.

4. An AWD and not a 4WD from Jeep.

Huge disappointment, and I love my Chevy V8 more after that test drive.

But we digress - lets get back to welcoming the newcomers.
