Default hello auto gods

hi everyone, this is bhp1 reporting.
im on + side of 30.
a doctor by profession.
have great deal of interest in cars & adventure.
i heard about team bhp from friends & on the net, have been visiting the site for quite some time as a guest & now, finally have joined it.
my previously owned cars: very old: dodge, plymoth.
relatively old: amby, fiat, m800 1st. in city, straight from japan.
not so old:m800van, m800car, contessa, m1000, esteem, astra, cielo, gypsy,
now in possession: m800-95, cielo-98, ikon-2001, corolla-04, innova- 06.
future interests: diesel or alt. fuel or hybrid.

as a member of team-bhp, i shall try to put in whatever knowledge ive gained so far. ive been an auto enthusiast for time immemorial, have driven a lot of cars apart from owning some contemporary ones. ive also been reading a lot about cars in magazines & web.
hope that i can be of some help somewhere!

thanks,
yes, im finding the place addictive just after joining.
i keep my cars under rotation every 1-2yrs, they are generally in good condition , so i dont lose a great deal on them & am able to taste new offerings in the market.
but, now for some time ive been contemplating to buy a new car, none has really excited me. the market has not moved at a fast enough pace & you get almost similar products. im looking for something with latest cutting edge techonology.

Welcome Bhp! Pretty appropriate nick you have chosen there. I see you buy a new car every 3 years. Whats cooking for Y2009?

Please do take a quick detour to the board rules section to understand our forum policies.

bhp1, Welcome aboard. As you expressed interest in Alternate fuels and Hybrids, you should check out Tesla Motors. An awesome car, but unfortunately will be years before we get anything like that in India.

thanks gto , yes my nick name is inspired by your forums. interesting!
well i had been buying every 1-2 yrs, but now ive slowed down a bit as im not finding interesting examples.
09 seems far, there are green plans for 08. & yes sir ive already accustomed myself with the forum rules & regulations, it was perhaps the first thing i did.

Im posting a big thank you post in intro. thread, please excuse me for this, I found this to be an appropriate place.

I would like to thank the ADMIN. , various MODERATORS, & my dear Members for helping me graduate from a newbie to a BHPian.

The journey so far has been fantastic, I am amazed at the quality & content of the forum & wish to add my bit to it.
Initially heavy moderation does tend to bug a little & one often thinks , is there some level of paranoia in the forum, but then soon I realizes that every thing is for betterment of the forum.

So, again I thank all from the bottom of my heart & expect the same or more level of motivation & encouragement from the forum in the future also. So that I am able to devote my best to the forum.
