Default Help!! Any rehabilitation centre in Hyderabad?.

Mods! STOP - before you think I posted this thread in the wrong
section, I just wanted to tell how addicted I am to team-bhp.

Like everyone else in this forum, I am also addicted to cars. Few
months back when I was browsing the web for information on new
cars to be launched, I came across team-bhp. Initially I used to
visit the site once or twice a day and used to spend a few minutes
but now, I fear I am spending most of the day at team-bhp.

While laziness being one of the reasons for not becoming a member
till now, the other reason and the primary one is that you dont
need to become one for getting all the information that you want.
I think it is great decision to allow people to read information
from the forum without actually becoming a member. Just by using
the search option, you can get more information that you had
wanted. Infact I for one just used the search option to get to know
about free-flow exhausts, Air Filters, Performance plugs etc.

After reading a lot from this forum, I have gone for a
Automech freeflow,
Pipercross airfilter,
Ovian leather seats,
Castrol synthetic oil,
NGK Iridium plugs (I know it is not recommended),
JBL 75.4 amp,
JBL GT5-12 sub in a basstube,
JBL GTO 350.1 monoblock amp,
FogLamps,
Changed to Skoda type horns,
Changed to better bulbs,
Michelin XM1+,
League Alloys

I just want to point out that I was able to make a decision
on all the above without having the need to ask even a single
question. It is that much the forum is organized. Great job
to all those people who have made this happen.

If it had not been for this forum, I would have sold my
2005 Getz without even realizing that whatever I want I can
get it done in my current car itself without having the need
for an upgrade. Thanks to team-bhp for rejunivating the love for
my car and making my drives pleasurable.

Sorry for the long post and thank you if you have read it till
now.

Default i beg your pardon

Welcome dr.. I've been trying to read, type, sing, rap.. that username! well if its good for you then so its for us. Get ready for a nick name from your interesting username.
Have a great time on TBHP and blow your life saving on the modifications! jus kiddin.
Enjoy!

PS. forget the rehabilitation, the withdrawal symptoms are a far greater issue that the addiction itself cheers:

I completely agree with eh, well, I don't remember the username. Seriously!

I started my research on buying a used car. When a friend of mine suggested me team-bhp. That's it. Till that day, I checked out lots of used cars and short-listed 3 used Swifts. But after downing a couple of pegs of ambrosia (read the hot threads of team-bhp ), I chucked the idea of an used car!!! And I got my new Swift Vxi (ABS) 2 weeks back. And even got it ICEd from Satya of EVO

I have reached a stage where I sit in my cabin at the workplace, browsing through the threads of team-bhp, reading Auto Magazines on the side, and then discussing cars, stereo etc with my colleagues. My manager has already warned me that I am heading towards a low appraisal rating
And . But then, who cares, Its cars and Team-BHP aftrall!

P.S. - Just curious, how did you choose that username?
Its just Brilliant

Note from the Team-BHP Support Staff : Post Edited. Smilie usage is restricted to two per post on Team-BHP. Please refrain from using excessive smilies.

Welcome to Team BHP! This is just the beginning. Now that you are a member, you will have thousands of new suggestions from other members on how to lose all your money on one small car!

And compliments on your cool handle, drivehappilyeverafter. It is brilliant indeed.

Newcoolgadgets, that was some cool decoding, I hope you are right. If so it sure is brilliant, its just that its a username that not so userfriendly
Just kiddin.

Good way of creating usernames, easy to remember if you know the entire sentence.
I think his logic was to remove "aeoiu" from the sentence, keep the repeating ovels.

BTW I also got to TBHP Searching for reviews of tata safari.

That's a cool username, will have to type it in the whole sentence everytime and then delete the deleted characters!

Welcome and have a good time.

@ Newcoolgadgets - that was as hard as the da-vinci code. wow!

@ johnda - The handle does stand for drivehappilyeverafter. However I thought it would be very easy for you guys to decode it.

@ ksrinu - I did not follow any particular order to remove the alphabets, I just wanted it to be as short as possible and at the same time achieve what I wanted.

Anyways, guys, thanks for the welcome. Catch you all in the other threads. Bye.

Welcome drvhplyevraftr, if you read the board rules SMS type lingo is not allowed here on the forum, but those rules dont apply to the handle I guess!!

But I am really curious about communicating to you in your own style.
