After spending over two weeks reading nearly each and every thread in here, thought I'd introduce myself.
But first, would like to Congratulate Team Bhp on the wonderful site. The hard work really shows in the quality maintained on this forum compared to even some of the best car forums even in US / Europe.
I am 29, happily married to an avid car lover. I am working as a Recruitment Consultant.
My love for cars started with my Dad's 1983 230E and a Hillman (Both Sold), and still remember the rides in the Merc even though I was only five years old then.
Have avidly followed Car tech around the world and have a huge collection of Old Road & Track, Car & Driver, Car UK magazines along with dozens of individual marque Books. Started off with collecting 1:18 Bburago car models, stopped when I got my first car, but still have nearly 40 immaculatly maintained models most still packaged in their original boxes.
While I learnt driving on a Fiat, my first car was a 1996 Opel Astra (therefore the title) bought in 2000 ran it to the ground and sold it in 2006, also owned a Tata Indica (Only car I ever bought brand new) one of the first batch, got rid of it within a year also had an Esteem for a few years.
Currently own two Opel Astra's, one OHC 1.5, one OHC 1.5 AT and one Honda Accord VI generation 2.4 Vti-L AT.
Would love to own a Merc, but given GTO's experiences doesn't look soon on the horizon.
Personally, prefer to drive a set of fast twisy bends, exploring the limits of the car and tyres, rather than a purestraight Expressway and therefore the Germans have always ruled my heart although hate the reliability, thats what we have the Hondas for, bullet proof dependabilty.
Well thats about it, keep up the great job, just love keep coming back to Team BHP!

For a moment there, I thought fellow moderator TSK1979 is posting his intro all again! You better watch out for those mod requests coming your way. Welcome to our community!
We'd appreciate your taking a quick pitstop by our board rules section. See you over on some interesting discussions.
