Post Its happening, I am in Team-BHP

I am Gokul Ragupathy of Coimbatore native, currently working in Bangalore. I have been browsing this forum for the past 6 months and after unsuccessful 4 attempts I am here now a member of Team-BHP, though I lost my favourite handle (GokulR) in one of the attempts.

I am feeling great to be the part of the great Indian community. My hearty congratulations to Team-BHP for maintaining such a great site and with a team size of such a huge numbers. It’s quite good to see such a car forum in India as well. There are lot of auto enthusiasts here from whom I need to learn lot of things. I was amazed to see the vast knowledge of all you Team-BHPians. I saw a thread "What I got for being a Team-BHPian". While reading this I felt being a part of Team-BHP is more than just discussions.

Now, people around me stop at me for any suggestions on Cars, ICE, finance, RTO, etc though I am not too technical

After going through various forums, I have finalised my first car to be – Punto Active petrol (awaiting delivery). And now going through ICE section for audio and finalised the ICE also – Pio 4190, JBL 265C Comp, JBL 396 Rear (got it from AutoShop).

Thanks for the mods for approving me

Congratulations on your new Punto! It's a great car to drive and arguably one of the best looking ones in India as well! If you have the money, do slap on some tasty white powder coated 17" O.Z. Superturinos on them or even a set of polished, off-set 17" O.Z. Superleggera IIIs would look real nifty!

Welcome to the family. Have a pleasant stay and drive safe!

Hi Mech,

Welcome to forum, a newbie myself. Congrats on the car, what color have you opted for ? Saw a cute red one with alloys and low pro tires in the city recently. Have fun and drive safe.
