Hi All,

Actually I dont own a beetle :-( . But yeah a fan of the car *ever since I watched the "Herbie" series of movies *:-) .
It is also great that the VW has allowed the legend to live on and they still keep rolling out the Beetles . *I *think the new Beetle looks even better !

Hi beetle. How long do we need to wait?
where are you from? What are you driving? I suggest you take GTO's question properly.
He's the ADMINISTRATOR.... So...
Welcome anyway. Join the crazy lot.

Hi people ,

Well ... I just got *busy reading all the other threads and I forgot to look what's cooking on my own thread , he *he :-)

I live in Chennai *and am a software engineer by profession. I drive an Alto Vx . This car is 3 years old and my first !
I find it to be a great city car and it also handles the occasional long drive very well . *

I have actually learnt driving on my dad's 1980 Premier padmini *nearly 10 years back and I believe somehow it taught me the basics well ! * My Dad *has already upgraded to an Esteem which I drive *whenever i am in Hyderabad( my hometown).
