Default I wake up to drive !!

Hi Everyone,

After having been a static user of Team-BHP for over 8 Months now, I have finally got enlisted and been accepted as a member of this Autobaan - and am really excited !

Have been an enthusiastic "Rider" for over 15 years now, my road-mates have been Hero-Honda -> Yamaha RX135 -> Tata Indica DLS -> Nissan Maxima V6 -> Verna CRDi ..

The fact that for most of my professional life in Bangalore, I have woken up looking forward to a 1 hour drive to work, must explain my thread-title. And contrary to most other drivers who complain of the traffic, I thoroughly enjoy my time alone with my M&M (Machine & Music) !

I was first drawn to Team-bhp when I was looking out to buy a new car last year and the extensive feedback on this site gave me a good indicator of what to base my judgement on. I ended up picking up the Verna Diesel and ever since, the traffic has been more visible in my rear-view mirror than across my windshield

The best car I have driven is the Nissan Maxima v6 (Stick Shift) I owned while in the US. I will drive a Ferarri sooner than later.

I look forward to active participation on this forum.

Cheers,
Rapture

Hi Rapture

Its nice to have you finally posting on Team BHP. Stick shift cars in the US are rare so youre lucky to have owned one. Do post a review of your Verna in our reviews section and take some time to go through the Rules of the forum.

Welcome to Team BHP

Hi Rapture,
Welcome to Team BHP, we are the best community in the automotive world - period!
I can understand how you feel - even though I have been driving for a really long time, everytime i get behind the wheel of my Civic and am able to rev it - its NIRVANA!
Cheers.

Nice transition. Have you sold all of your previous rides or still have them with you?
