Default Hello All, Introducing myself!

Hi All,
I am Murali. I have been lurking in these forums for ages, but never really got to write something as i thought i didnt have any value to offer. But decided to make a start.
When i passed out of college in 1997, i had offers from IT as well as an Auto major. I chose the Auto major and was in Tata motors for two and half years (it was telco then). I worked on the indica line and on a new model prototype truck at that time (40 ton, 210hp) and then contributed to building a spv plant (excavators, construction vehicles)
Life took me back to IT, which is where i am now.
I had a company provided sumo at that time and did a lot of miles. MY first car was a preowned Honda Accord in the US (standard desi identity).
back in India i bought a M-800 as i thought i lost all my indian survival driving skills.
When i grew a little bit more confident, i got the Vista, which i kept for an year and did 15000 km.
Now, i have booked the etios and am still undecided. I might go for the Manza. I am not too particular about the toyota badge, but stupidly, i always wanted to own a car with alloys which is why i chose the etios in my bracket.
But still unsure if my money is safer on a manza (toyta delivery times!!. I cant wait another 4 months for a car)

welcome on teambhp Murali.

i would vote for Manza because of your past experience with tata's.

you can always buy alloys of your choice for it.

BTW get familiar with tbhp rules here.
