Default Desperate help needed

Hey Bhpians ,

My name is Ryan Lobo , i am currently doing an MBA in marketing - very intrested in joining the auto sector ,have been a member for almost 2 years now , I visit the site very often to get more and more educated, these amazing machines you all drive


Own an esteem(silver) 2000 model VXI stock.personal car(after a lot of convincing) and a black karizma 2003.Have had a few accidents on bike and in car , turtled the car once in 2005 on the day of my exam , bad experience, the cars perfect after it was repaired 80k damage "thank you dad", barely done 25,000 till now.not one scatch on the car , paint still looks new.and its fast the engine hasn't been opened up yet . but once i am done wit this course.. i have to get someting done wit the car. For me pick up excites me more than top end.thats about me .( wish i could make it more intersting )



I am desperate for information , I am currently doing a project on the Swift dezire,i have to carry out a research on the car, the only way i can do is by speaking with people who own the car , or have booked or cancelled bookings.and i have to speak to people most important weather on phone or person, i am ready to travel anytime any place to speak to people.



My target is 100 people for mumbai as communicated to me by seniors.Up till now i have manged 22cars/people in 7 days , it was real difficult, i had to follow swift dzire owners on bike in heavy rains in order to stop them to have a few words with them, "at this one point i followed a guy from bandra to andheri (fame). and finally i got caught by cops" . for the past week i have just been following dezire's around mumbai in the rain , i am going crazy , i can spot one from a km now.i wait on carter's for atleast 3 hours daily to spot a dzire but have just got 5 cars from there




Members from Mumbai please please help me with somedetails as this is the last option left for me , even dealers wont help , even agents in the RTO will not give information even after i offered to pay them



Bhpian's i need your help desperately i will be very very grateful, "my career depends on this ".thank you ,cheers!! contact me on ryanlobo1@gmail.com /ryan_wheelz@rediffmail.com ph-9970291725

Hi Ryan,

Walk around some big car parks/shopping mals etc during weekend and spot the owners and the car. But dont land up looking like a car thief or something Unique challenging assignment you have taken up, enjoy your stay and welcome.

cheers,
Jaggu

Well Ryan guess can get help from this thread.This is basically maintained by people who have booked/canceled the dzire only that all may not be from Mumbai.
