Hi fellow BHPians,

Hope your doing good. I would like to bring to your attention the rush that the Team-BHP stickers give.

I live in Bangalore, next to MS Ramiah hospital and drive an Innova and a Corolla. Traffic has been increasing in this part of the city and its a bit disappointing to see young college student driving fast around with the T-BHP"Live to drive stickers". I had a close call with a Hyundai Santro(maroon color) who overtook at high speed and broke my Right Hand side rear view mirror. Although I couldn't note down his number plate I could see the T-BHP sticker adorned in the front.

Members of this website have always preached and practiced safe driving within city limits (only gunning it in the Highway or in a track). I request the young students who drive with T-BHP stickers to practice safe driving and not create a stench while having adorned the T-BHP badge.

Practice safe driving, stick to the speed limits its a lot cooler to remain calm and drive properly rather than gunning it down till the next signal. The city roads are not a race track its our means of getting to places.

Btw 430 to 5 is one bad time to cross that signal. Why don't you take the Cunningham road? Its a bit relaxed then. That day's jam was horrible. But i had to take that route as I'd work in Malleshwaram.

Regards.
Yes, have not put any stickers on the Esteem yet as I would most likely be selling it and pick up a Scorpio. Ordering a set of the stickers today and the Scorpio will definitely have them.. Thanks for the offer on the Stickers.

Hello,

I spotted a Karnataka (KA) registered Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Vdi inside SEEPZ, Mumbai.

You were leaving from SEEPZ Gate no. 1 today at 6:45 pm I was just behind you & flashed my lights many times but you probably did not noticed.

Thanks,

Noida spotting.
I was driving back from office and reached the sector 57-56 traffic signal going towards sector 12-22.As I was slowing down saw a black scorpio parked diagonally to the left with a LTD. It brightened the otherwise dull drive to home. I overtook him and slowed down and gave him way and even gave a thumbs up....but alas like all of my NCR spottings till date...no acknowledgement....he zoomed paased me as if I was racing him, and it is a semi-crowded road..so I gave up. All I was expecting was an acknowledgement buddy, if you are reading this I hope you realize this when you spot a fellow bhpian.

Tried taking a photo but the quality was bad so not uploading it

Got BHP? might appear provocative to a few but it's more to do with the lack mannerisms with them than stickers on your car. It's better to ignore such morons as you never know which one is carrying a local made katta/gun. I have experienced some people (inspired by F&F series) that would start revving while looking at you at signals and there would be others that would pass you and then slow down. I always choose to ignore them as they aren't worthy of racing Crusoe.
You telling me brother the fact that I have a Northern Motorsport and Himalayan motorsport sticker makes it all the worse. Thank God I don't have a GBHP

I know the owner by face, as I used to go to the same gym as him.I think he is a member because i have seen him in a black 4wd Scorpio with tbhp stickers and northern Motorsport decals. He lives In the same building complex where I live in another tower. Will definitely ask him his handle next time I see him.

Couple of spottings this evening

A silver swift HR 26 AN 33something, with the ids sticker on the rear right lower corner parked in dlf garden estate. Have seen a black fortuner with ltd stickers on the front left fender parked at garden estate on previous occasions.

Spotted a white ford figo diesel with ltd on the rear glass at about 11pm today heading towards Delhi on the mg road. Number was DL 8C xx 7284.

Now, i have stopped waving at the people who have T-BHP stickers on their cars. Its mainly because of two reason:

> I don't want to look weird by waving at random people
> My Fiancee is anyways pissed with T-BHP because i devote more time in reading the threads than talking to her over the phone. And, When i wave at people and they don't respond to me, Only i know how much fun she makes of me.

So guys, if you spot a Blue chevy beat with LTD on rear glass, please take initiative and wave at me

I know exactly what you mean. If someone has Tbhp stickers he would in all probably notice your stickers when you pass him. A number of times I have purposely overtaken a tbhp stickered car to show off my sticker. But, most Delhi people don't acknowledge spottings neither here on this thread nor even in person for that matter. and mind you, there are a lot of cars with tbhp stickers out there. I realised this week. Been spotting 1-2 cars almost everyday.
Instead of getting another drivers attention nowadays, I just pull out my phone camera or memorise the registration number and post it here. My friends usually get really amused when I pull out my phone to click a picture. They usually ask, do you know him? Then, why are you taking a picture of his car.

Ps- going to keep my eyes peeled for your blue beat from now on!! Look out for a black santro xing with the ltd on the hatch. Would be only to happy to wave and take initiative.

Hey, your office might be near to mine. I work in Sector 62 (Stellar IT Park). Let me know if you pass from there or nearby, it will be good to meet a fellow BHPian.

I was on my usual weekend morning drive today, this time on Mysore road. Past Kengeri and before Bidadi, a spotting, although I can't help thinking it was a non-member trying to showoff when he saw the stickers on my Jet.

Vehicle : white i20 CRDi
Registration number : don't remember
Sticker(s) : LTD on the rear hatch door (almost at the centre of the boot door)
Place : just past wonderla, Mysore road SH17, heading towards Bidadi
Time : 6.45am, today
Additional info : lack of lane discipline, abrupt lane switches; also you had come with a friend in a white M800, equally bad driving

I don't expect any acknowledgement for this, would be really surprised to receive one. Please drive safe, if you are a member and reading this. And please don't become a racerboy when you see team-BHP stickers on other cars. We are not a street racing or drag-racing community.
