I've been spotting so many cars with these stickers. Went to escape festival last weekend and I must have spotted atleast 10 cars with team-bhp stickers. Ofcourse my car was sporting a few as well. Great going bhpians.

So Karthik, how was the free mud wash of the Red Rocket, this evening ?

Saw 2 cars in Meenakshi Mall Basement-3 Parking - a black Vento with LTD on the rear bumper, and a blue Swift with 2-3 stickers on the hatch door.

To the Swift guy, I did see you getting out from the car while I was pulling out of the parking slot, but since there was another car waiting for me to move, I chose to keep moving.

Time, around 10:30pm on Friday

I think we need to have a protocol for teambhp members.
I have spotted several cars but have only been acknowledged once or twice. Considering almost all sticker sporting vehicles are driven by folks who aren't members I've stopped waving/signalling, the only exception being the Safari last evening, which didn't acknowledge either.

Its relatively simple. Just a couple of quick short honks along with a couple of flashing and a thumbs up. If a member, then you will be reverted with a couple of tail lamp flashes and a thumbs up through the rear window.

AP11P2439 Black Santro, from after Mettuguda signal till Sangeet signal at 8 pm last night. I over took you just after Rail Niliyam and was right in front of you in Maroon Santro. You couldn't have missed LTD on my car even if you wanted to

What is a tail lamp flash ? I have seen in this thread, many members saying about tail lamp acknowledgement. How does it work ?

When someone flashes for acknowledgement from behind, you give single flash of your hazard lights or something like that

I keep an eye out for your green beat in the same route everyday, not lucky as yet. I do catch KarthikK's Punto often in the BTM area. He travels in the opposite direction so taking a pic or even waving is not feasible.

Correction- this was near brigade metropolis, yeah I did notice a biker gesturing, first tot was to finger back,
only later realised it was Ze Hawk's 2 wheeled avatar and the \m/ protocol.

Yesterday night, white Punto on ORR, #9835, we played cat and mouse till sarjapur junction I suppose.

MUMBAI SPOTTINGS

1. Silver Swift bearing regestration number MH 02 BG xxxx near Marve Signal on S.V. Road, Malad(W).
Had good set of alloys and LTD at the rear right bumper.
Couldn't notice the complete number as it had silver shaded plates and small fonts. I was on the opposite side as well so the distance made it worse.

2. A black Innova bearing registration MH 43 N 8012.
Had the teambhp url sticker on the top of the rear windshield.
I was with you from the Marve signal on the link road till the Charkop from where you turned right.
Did flash more than a couple of times but then let go as I did not have stickers on my car. Came beside you once and we did make eye contact and noticed you were with family hence did not try any tactics. If you remember a Brown WagonR flashing at you, that was me!

Saw on 30th evening (~ 8 PM) a White SX4 with 2 LCLC stickers at the top of the boot & a few more at the bottom, few meters after the adjoining HP Fuel Pump & CNG Station on Mathura Road on opposite side of Mohan Cooperative. The number was DL 3C A_ 3686 (if I can recall correctly).

ooooooo... I see. I thought it was something like Braking frequently to make the brake light go On and Off. In that case the BHPian behind would have banged up my car for an acknowledgement. lol

It's actually not my regular route. I stay in BTM and my route is BTM Lake Road - AXA Signal - Silkboard - ORR via HSR.
On that day I took a left from silkboard, took a U-Turn under the flyover and joined back on ORR. Not a good driving sense, but was just making up some lost time in traffic.
My wish of spotting Karthikk and vice versa is still unfulfilled as somehow our timings don't match, although we cross Silkboard almost at the same time.
