Default Thanks T-BHP, latest fan from Nashik (the Wine Capital of India)

It may seem ironical to many of you that I'm writing my Introduction section after joining T-BHP for more than a year now, but its just that I'm now totally ADDICTED to it & so decided to be an active member here.

This is Siddharth Somani, 25, Nashik (M.S.) Mechanical Engg by education & Software Engg by Profession ( I hate this transition the most ), currently in Pune.

First of all, thanks to all T-BHPians who helped me justify my first aquisition - Swift VXi, as the amount of USEFUL information available on the Forums made my decision pretty simple. ( the available info can also confuse you at times)

My only passion includes TDing the newly introduced cars & eventually own each of those.

A special mention of my best friend, Pritesh - coz of whom I need not own each new car, as he owns most of those right from an M800 to a C-220.( a vehicle from each segment - from Hatchback -> Sedan -> MUV -> SUV -> Luxury )
So the normal weekend routine is to take out the available vehicle & go for a spin around the country-sides of Nashik.

I'm sure to have fun time forever on T-BHP & I really hope all T-BHPians would also like to have me here...

Thumbs up welcome

Hello!
Welcome to Team-BHP.

Does Nashik still have any nice country-side roads?
I'd spent a lot of school-era vactions in Nashik, and in those days it really was a pleasure to drive (rather be driven around), not only on the highways, but also in the city itself.

Last time I visited a few years ago, though, it had developed beyond recognition.

Please take some time out to go through the Announcements section and familiarise yourself with the posting rules.

Enjoy!

Welcome aboard Siddhu. My family visits Deolali pretty often, I agree with you on the beautiful countryside in that region. It's got awesome offroad territory too!! The line of car showrooms (next to the Taj) is a good hangout when there's nothing better to do .

Do stop by the board rules section to fully acquaint yourself with our posting policies.

Hi aah78,
I agree that Nashik has evolved a lot & its clearly following the foot-steps of Pune ( in terms of traffic chaos ), but yes, there are still pretty nice patches around. e.g. the hilly area behind famous "Sula Vineyard" on Gangapur Road, road leading to Trimbakeshawar & behind the Anjaneri village, then many-a-scenic spots on-the-way to Igatpuri on Mumbai-Agra Highway.

Regards,
siddhu_engg24

Hi kkr2k2,
That's because I can't explain the various tastes in Wines & the beautiful locations of Sula Vineyard in words, you need to come down to Nashik for self-experience

GTO et al, thanks a lot for a welcome...
GTO,
Yes, you are rite about the showrooms in that region. Its actually a general routine for me when I give my Swift to Automotive Mfgs. MASS for service.

But now the Sales guys in those showrooms know me personally & can't trouble them ONLY for the TDing
