Waiting for a right turn to New BEL road on CV Raman road, i saw a black ??verna?? at 9am turn right from New BEL rd. There was a sticker with some red color inbetween white letters on the rear windscreen bottom. Guess it must have been the team-bhp sticker. How many bhpians use the New BEL road (and at what time)? I stay near RBK.

Very true, They can even let them go for free after a service.

Since the owner of the above mentioned car hasn't responded here goes what transpired on Saturday night on Mysore Road. Was a disgusting experience to say the least.

My bro-in-law and a few friends were home on saturday we decided to drive to Maddur CCD in my scorp and a zen.Just about 75kms from home sweet home , we took off. En-route somewhere after chennapatna I spot this esteem with about 4 tbhp- stickers driving on the left lane.

Car never looked familiar and I decided to drive on. I was doing a good 130+ coz traffic was literally nil. I overtake the esteem and then reach this place where a bridge is under construction and the road merges to a single lane for 2-way traffic.

I slow down, let oncoming traffic pass and chug along. The esteem catches up and over takes me. Now for sure he has noticed the LTD sticker on my scorp' and drives on.
No pleasantries exchanged since the esteem driver never looked interested when I checked from my-side of the Window. Ok continue driving and then here is what happens next.

Am on the right lane now flash my lights to overtake.The esteem driver suddenly decides to swerve right in front of me simply to cut me off. I back off coz I really dunno if these chaps are drunk. Once again he does the same thing of going right and left right in front of me. Ok i have had enough I simply floor it and leave the esteem behind.

Now we are back cruising again and I see the esteem madly flashing the lights in the RVM. Move to the left lane and give him way only to be completely taken by surprise.Though he had the complete right lane at his disposal, over takes so close that he almost side swiped the scorp'.

During this overtaking fiasco the imbeciles in the car(about 3 of them) are howling and hooting at us. Bang came the next question from my better half and friends " Is this what your online forum is all about ? reckless driving and then a disgusting act of hooting at a fellow bhp'ian " .

Well I couldn't say much or even react coz yes thats what we just experienced now with a car full of stickers from team-bhp. I let the whole incident pass and dint want to spoil our drive.

As for the driver of this car ,

1 - Dude imagine if I had cut you off while overtaking what would have happened ? You straight would have gone into the divider.I never did it coz if I did , there wouldn't be a difference between you and me.Sanity prevailed and I decided to let go.

2 - Your traffic manners are truly bad coz you have no regret or concern for fellow drivers on the road.

3 - Just coz your car has a loud exhaust doesn't make you or your car invincible. Surprises are always up in the flash of a second.Listen up pal, I used to drive a 1.6 and then graduated to a SUV. Have had oodles up torque and power at my disposal but never drove like you at any instance.

4 - Last but not the least, was really sad to see your esteem eat dust that was kicked up by the Santro who literally licked you up. Yeah a santro(came out of nowhere) and the esteem did drag for a few kms.

With power comes responsibility,sporting stickers of this forum and stooping to such levels only brings a bad name to this forum and its members. If you aren't a member here please remove those stickers and don't put this place at the risk of getting a bad name.

Food for thought Its easy to run your puny esteem off the road by a 2 tonner. Grow up !!

PS : Folks if any of you chaps know this car kindly ask him to remove those stickers off the car. Simply brings a bad name to this place.

Sad to hear of the unfortunate experience you had rj.

Surprising to see what happened even after the driver noticed the t-bhp stickers. The only thing I can think of is that the car was given to a non-bhp'ian who had no idea of t-bhp.

Thats a real .bad experience rj. Pretty sure the T-Bhp stickers were gifted by a friend or they ordered it from here. Seeing your sticker, they decided to play around like a bunch of silly school kids.

Sad business to hear. Hopeless behaviour and road manners. If the Esteem chap is a member and is man enough, it would be greatly appreciated if he would get on the forum and make a public apology.

And maybe going forward -TBHP should run a Road Manners test quiz as a screening activity which one needs to qualify with a certain number of marks, before admitting new members. And there should be only three attempts permitted for such qualification.

Also - just to give the benefit of doubt, it could be that this car was earlier owned by a member of the Forum and has subsequently been sold to some non-member who is also no respecter of other road users. Just that the car continues to carry the forum stickers.

This raises another thing - when one sells off an used car down the value chain, how many of us actually take the pain to remove any and all stickers from it before selling?

Of course under ideal circumstances one should certainly remove any and all stickers which grant the vehicle access to Office Buildings, Apartment/ Residential Enclaves, Clubs and other such which are specific to the first owner/ member. In the same way, it would be best to remove all TBHP stickers from a car that one is selling off - especially if the buyer is not a fellow member.

Rj, Were you able to catch with the esteem driver and ask him for a reason for his rash driving and wheather he was a member of the forum????

Will the real owner of the esteem please stand up....

I did think about this when I made a few attempts to register here. They should put a good questionnaire and I would have passed with flying colours.

this is not only shocking but also stupid..

Guess all T-Bhpians should be extra careful to whom they give T-Bhp stickers and the Esteem guy really needs to do away with the stickers on his car as he simply does not deserve it.. (looser)

@ rj.. man i am glad you and your frnds/family are safe after that dumb fiasco...

on a personal basis i avoid going to MCCD as that place is swarming with drunk/dope heads who like to showoff and make a fool of themselves..
