Default Hello from a budding enthusiast!

Hello people,

I've been following this forum without registering, for about a year or so. Even after registering a few months ago, I've been a silent member, soaking in all the information more knowledgeable members here impart. An intro is long overdue!

I'm 28, I talk about cars to the extent that it drives my partner crazy. I currently drive a 2001 Maruti 800 Standard. There's a lot I want to do with the car, but so far, plans have remained plans. All I've done so far is give it a decent ICE 2+2 speakers, upsized 145-80/r12 bridgestones, besides treating her well consistently.

I recently got over my habit of trying and correcting bad drivers on the road. I would roll down my window and tell people not to block free left turns, not to cut across lanes, use the indicator, pull over to the left to talk on the phone etc etc. "telling" slowly transformed to "yelling". That's when I realized that there are way too many of 'em and I was just ruining my day.

I'm here to mostly understand my M800, put in more effort in its maintainance and upkeep, and keep an eye on new car launches. And yeah, I want to own a Jeep one day.

Cheers!
Ram

Welcome, Ram.
Why the change of mind after a year.

Nice to know you have gotten over the habit of correcting drivers, a futile exercise.

You are so much better of without one, you will have time for nothing else after that.
Regards,

I'm not bold enough to buy a used jeep. Am hoping for a new launch in the next few years.
