The pic of him clicking your ride is a classic. You are raising the standards on this thread!

But again, baffles me how you guys manage to click while driving. Am a bit nervous about doing that.

Mother of God !!! You seem to have shot an entire video. Well, you definitely drew the first blood right from the Madiwala junction.
On a diff note, that ride didn't have a BHP badging.

The last click with Vikram's Mondeo in the ORVM, looks naaaice.

Well I have a WP8 phone and it's really easy to take photographs on it. It has a dedicated hardware camera button. Even when the phone is off/standby mode, all you have to do to take a photo is to press and hold the camera button, the phone wakes up directly to the camera and takes a photograph of where ever you are pointing the camera.

And hats off to the H4WK, today I saw his photography skills in action. he uses a DSLR and just at the right moment he takes the photo in less than a second.

I have to agree and I have to concede that he noticed me long before I noticed him.

i think he was trying to not get spotted, but now that he has, me thinks a big LTD on the bumper is due!

To be honest it is long overdue. My car needs a lot of TLC in the looks department. Just haven't been able to get anything done due to work load at office. Once the complete repaint is done, she will surely have some stickers around. I have had the TBHP stickers ever since they first came out.

Please lend me your ears.

What has happened with me on a number of occasions is that when ever i spot a car with a team-bhp sticker's, i honk/flash from behind but as the car in front of me cannot make out who i am, as there are no stickers on the front side of my car, he usually speeds of or avoids my intentional honking/flashing. To be honest I might have also done the same to another member..

Hence can we have a standard honking/flashing procedure so that the person in front can fathom that the guy behind might be a bhpian. Something like maybe 3 flashes and then a honk or what ever suits everyone best. And maybe a PM can be sent out to all the members of the new standard so that they follow the same as well as pay attention to the same .

After all its great to meet a fellow bhpian on the road.

So Who was the person in a silver Octavia with TBHP stickers that waved/gestured at me on NH 24 near Pilakhua last evening? I was in the blue Elantra with GBHP and LTD stickers.

Ride: Silver Contessa with sparkling nice wheels
Place: Jayanagar 4th Block
When: Today 31st Jan at 9am
Sticker: GBHP sticker just behind the rear right door side.
Reg: KA 01 N XXXX (forgot the number)

Who are you mate? This looked really nice and had an uncanny resemblance of the GT mustang!

All I saw was a LTD on the LHS on the rear bumper. No idea if it had the other stickers, since I was searching for a parking slot.

Spotted just now black endevour with LTD on the right top corner of the rear door. I just caught a glimpse of you turning left into the petrol pump just after the Noida RTO.

On a funny note, if I try to do that in Bangalore, my or the other BHPian's honks will get drowned out amongst the 20 other impatient honks of adjacent indicabs, sumos and tempo travellers .

thanks mate! what i do and how i pull it off comes with years of practice - driving + photography. folks out there who think this is easy - trust me, it ain't. so don't try this on public roads if you're not good at it (ok to try it at home)

This car hadnt acknowledged my earlier spotting even when I flashed, thumbs up etc at the cmh road 100ft road signal.

So probably not a bhpian.
