Hello to the Car loving junta....

For a long time I've been thinking of joining this forum, but then somehow or the other couldn't manage to do so. Introducing myself, I am an automobile designer, specifically in the Body in White area. I practically live and breathe automobiles.

I own a 1.2 i10 Magna, absolutely love it. My favorite cars would be the M3 Coupe, GT2 and any Lamborghini. Personally i feel Fabia or the Accord is a good car to have in India. Although I really like the Contessa, the stately charm and the pseudo Muscle car aura of it.

I prefer carving corners rather than Mud plugging. I am a responsible driver.

I like photography, espcially potraits and wildlife. My gadgets for this is a somewhat old Canon 400D and a cheal tripod.

I like Formula one, belive Schumacher is the best thing of my era. Support Kimi over Alonso, Lewis or whoever.

Somewhat sedate follower of WRC and Moto GP

Absolutely love Football and Tennis.
I'm good in playing Counter Strike too.

Hate pettiness and Impracticality.

I like music as well, Pink Floyd and Metallica would be my joint favourites.
Also love travelling. I love good food and beer in a major manner and also regard movies as a better form of entertainment than watching TV.

That's it, I guess, you people won't be needing the other facts. In short I'm eagerly looking forward to quench my thirst in automobile knowledge and also to fuel other's with whatever limited knowledge i have.
Good to be in board.

Happy posting!! And have a nice day.

Hey Valkyrie

Thats a nice intro there. Great to have an auto designer on board. The i10 Kappa is a very practical city runabout. Schumacher is a favourite of alot of BHPians, me included.

Do showoff your photography skills on the forums. We have dedicated threads for those. Take a look at the rules before proceeding further.

Welcome to Team BHP.

So i have to ask -- then why on earth is your ID Valkyrie ??

Theres no mention of 2-wheelers in your entire post, except a sedate interest in motoGP.

Welcome aboard!
Do tell us more about what you do as an automobile designer.

Also, check out this thread : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...-customer.html (New Car development : An insider perspective - From drawing board to customer)

Valkyrie as if not the bike, but the mythical warriors from after life

My job is simple.... To build a sheet metal body of a vehicle by taking a styling surface as reference.... Also other groups come to play here..like Vehicle Integration, CAE, Suspension, Steering and all.... Its a nice job, I like it...

Join the club, I've had similar bike questions about my id, although it is based on Japanese warrior clan, they don't notice the warrior in my avatar.

Well, in support to Rehaan, Valkyries were ALWAYS female, and you don't sound like one (Sorrier if you are)
Welcome aboard
