Something I would dearly love. Compared to other automotive stores like CarStudio, Vicky, this is one that we can probably use with a much higher degree of trust.

All the best to Tapish for this venture. May you do very well. And expect a lot of orders from my side.

@ Tapish
All the very best Tapish. This is really a good news which all BHPians can cherish about. it will certainly give us great trust when we are shopping from you.
I would suggest you to have Alloys if possible. I know this is a costly affair but it might help your business gain good popularity. may be selected alloys to start with.

Tapish, all the very best for your new venture.
Just curious to ask, do you provide installation support in Bangalore?

Also, any thoughts on slight discounts for bhpians like in Madhus?

Best of luck Tapish for your venture. I am sure it will succeed with the Indian Car buyer atleast gaining some maturity. And yes what about a fixed discount for bhpians, hehe I know but then we are Indians na?

Made my first purchase (a tow rope) at carkhana on 12th and they've shipped me the product the same day itself and is supposed to reach me today via BlueDart. So far the experience has been good. All the best for this new venture and hoping that you guys will keep on improving the service standards.

Coolclouds: Apoogies, but we do not provide installation support in Bangalore. However, that is definitely on the cards. Maybe by the end of this year

I tried to access the website, but found the response to be very slow. Searching was also slow, made the pages opening so slow that other IE pages opened would also hangup.

I hope you will look into it Tapish, all the best for your venture.

Tapish, I wasn't aware this was your venture. Here is wishing you the best of luck for Carkhana.com mate.

How does it work for folks like us from Mumbai and around?

And hey buddy, nice name btw! Like the play there!

Are the products with official (principal) B&W? If not, they are expensive.

Tapish, forum rules prohibit me sending a PM and hence this msg.
My orders on 24-Jan, appear 'in-processing' for a week now. It would great if you could provide me a possible date of shipment.
