Default Introduce yourself

Hi All Team BHP'ians,

At last, i managed to become one. I was denied the membership twice, and the third attempt proved lucky for me. I had to read all the questions seriously and deliberately before posting an answer. Reminds me of my first board exam!

Well, i am Capitalson to you. A car lover. My 1st car was 2001 Ford iKON 1.8D. 2nd car is a ( i still have that) 2004 Ford Flair 1.3, 3rd one was a 2007 Nissan "Altima", 4th was a 2006 Mitsubishi "Eclipse" & 5th was a 2008 Ford "Fusion". The 3rd, 4th & 5th cars were bought when i was in Sunnyvale, USA.

Now planning to buy a i10 1.2 "Sportz" AT for my wife, but i seriously doubt that she would drive the car considering Delhi traffic conditions!

Well, i am proud to be a Team BHPian. Will post regularly with all my on-road-experiences.

Welcome aboard Capitlson-BHP is a place where all vehicle and road lovers should be. Delhi traffic???? the less said the better-but honestly speaking tell me a town or City where the traffic and road manners does not drive you up the gum tree?? I hear alot about Chandigarh-not been there since 1985??

Hi Colonel, thanks for welcoming me. Your statement is absolutely true about our traffic conditions all over. But hones our observation skills and the ability to quickly react! I too have not been to Chandigarh since 1981 when my dad was posted there (He was a captain in Indian Army).

Anyways, i would rate the driving style in Delhi as more aggressive than that of Bangalore's. It's maddening in Bangalore but definitely not aggressive. Anyways, i have a question. We have planned to go to Manali from Delhi on 6th of April and to be back by 11th. Can i drive the 3 days new i10 AT to Manali and back? Your views will be greatly appreciated.
