Default Payne arrives!

Hi folks,

Its been a while coming but here I am on Team-BHP finally. Cars or rather automobiles happen to be one of my biggest hobbies in life and driving is something that I've always been fond of but never really got a chance to do for the past 4-5 years.

Me: I am D.Payne or D.Raw El Payne or the_royal_pain or simply Payne on most forums. Regulars on other "techie" forums would know me - greenhorn, and Chaos to name a few. I am: a tech enthusiast by interest - computers, mobiles, cars, bikes, anything with electronics in it; an engineer turned manager by education (typical BE/MBA); a marketing guy by profession (in design!) and a designer/photographer by hobby.

Coordinates: Pune right now. Hyderabad most of my life. A lot of parts around India at sometime or the other thanks to my job.

I drive: A beat up old Indica V2 2001 DLS. Still running and well too, all at 60k+ kms! The only things that irritate me are the excessive noise, the ability to transform into a bullock cart once the a/c's turned on, the plasticky plasticky interiors....oh wait, there are a LOT of things that irritate me. :P

I hope to drive: Some damn good car in the near future. Pre-owned or new. Big buying decision coming up.

I am most likely to post: A lot of posts in the photography threads, answer a lot of non-auto queries (cameras/mobiles etc) and some auto queries as well and put in funny comments once in a while.

That's it for now.

Cheers!
Payne

PS: My flickrstream and my Deviantart page. Check em out when u can.

Thanks Abhinav (SC), bottle, Nikhil, Greenie (u again!), nisarg, Rehaan and theMAG (mods!)!

Still settling in here, so much activity and so many threads full of the most interesting stuff. Whoa!

Sledge huh? Octavia rings a bell, but a Innova too? Was there an iKon at any point in time?
