Default Hello Everyone

Hi my fellow Auto Enthusiasts,

I would like to thank the founding members for starting this community which I am very happy to be part of now.

The knowledge encapsulated in the 1000s of Gigabytes of data which forms this group is priceless and it just makes becoming a member even over precious.

I’m a Computer Hardware Engineer. I would be celebrating my 3rd wedding anniversary in Dec and my sons 1st birthday in Nov.

Bangalore is the place I lay my hat and call home. It has been home for the past 9 years prior to that I was in a place called Bahrain where I was born and brought up.

I accidently found this site while googling for something or the other.
It was Dippy’s “The Scale Model Thread” which got me hooked and I started reading each post and now over 300 pages later I can add my small collection to that thread.

Apart from fast cars and bikes, my interest are video games (yes even at this age) and photography.

As for my rides over the years,
Back in College it was my dad’s 84’ Toyota Corona.
Once I came to India my first and only car has been a 2001 Indica Lei (1.4L, 75bhp).
I am planning to pick up a Ford Fiesta 1.6Zxi in the coming month or so

I would like say thanks to the all members who have posted their experiences here which has helped me select this vehicle.

This will be my first post and will continue to contribute to this forum in the best ways possible.

Thanks
Rajesh

Easy there tiger!

Though this reminded me of some stats i read of facebook's photo storage, check it out :

160 terabytes of photo storage used with an extra 60 terabytes available

60+ million photos added each week which take up 5 terabytes of disk space

3+ billion photo images served to users every day

100,000+ images served per second during our peak traffic windows

I see you are a PS2 owner -- GT4 fan?

Same here.
The ride comfort (esp at the back) is really nice....though it took me a long time to get used to how narrow the car is inside, as well as the slightly off driving ergonomics.

Welcome to TBHP.

Ford seems to be doing lot of sales these days thanks to VFM petrol editions. Would suggest the 1.6 S if you love revving
