Default Hello

Folks:

I am Kimi (nicked after my pseudo-name when I was dressed as a girl during ragging at my Engg College, and that's stuck since).

I love driving and 'cleaning my car' - though not sure I like owning cars - can't believe they are so pricey.

I landed on this forum while researching for a premium car I wanted to buy - the rest is history...I spend bulk of my time on this site; took help from androdev and lamborghini.

I finally booked a Octavia Combi yesterday - wanted Silver desperately to avoid being in Rudra's "God only help category" of colors but ended up with Flamingo Red.

I am an entrepreneur - with fingers in multiple businesses and pretty old for this community! I live in Bangalore and love this city - would like to know though how my exhorbitant road tax is spent!

I currently have a M800 ('97 model) and Santro Automatic and I love them!

Look forward to sharing my car experiences with the forum

Cheers,
Kimi

Welcome, diffsoft. I'm sure you will enjoy your stay here.

Why do you say "pretty old for this community" ? If you havent already, you will soon see that the "old" TBHP-ians are amongst our best.

Have fun.

Welcome Kimi,

Condor is right, there is nothing like being old for anything in life.

You are only as young/old as you feel, pls feel young & be young.

A definite advantage for the TBHP is your experiences & advise that comes from that experience.

cheers

Welcome to the forum Kimi! That was a nice intro!

And interesting choice of car too! What's your reason for picking the Combi? Family or maybe a Pet?

No pets but family iraghava - but i went through a excruciating decision making process before deciding to settle on the Combi. We had also been liking the concept of a station wagon and had considered Baleno Altura a while ago till we learnt they discontinued.

Combi is certainly not cheap by any standards, but I loved the Skoda drive and did not mind a lower resale value (rather do not intend to sell it!).
