I see many Team-BHP stickered cars on the road and I always either wave / look or flash my hazard lights.

But alas, no one responds back

Once near the Koti Lingeshwara Temple, while driving I saw a car with the Team-BHP sticker parked on the side. I thought they might be in some trouble - so parked my car, got down and went to that car and inquired if they needed any help. I pointed to the sticker - but they had no clue about what I was talking....

I totally understand Tempelhof. Hate it when this happens. So embarrassing. Ill think twice before approaching any random car with a team-bhp sticker.

Spotted 3 stickered cars during my 15th Aug drive from Mumbai to Goa (via Belgaum -> Chorla ghat).

1. White swift Mumbai registered on NH4 somewhere after Satara. Flashed my lights and overtook the car. He flashed his lights, so I guess he did see the stickers on my car. Then the swift got stuck in traffic while I moved on. Clicked couple of photos, but lost them somehow.

2. Red Swift after Belgaum. Flashed my lights, but I doubt he saw me. Seemed lost at one turn (I guess towards Pirangwadi) where we took the right road. I stopped later at a peaceful stretch when the red swift zoomed past us.

4. Not really a sticker spotting, but an amazing experience.
We had stopped just before Belgaum exit and were enjoying the scenery. After 4-5 minutes, a black XUV crossed us and then stopped some 50-60 meters ahead of us. A tall guy came out and walked all the way back to us. I was wondering if I cut him off or something, earlier. The guy came over and asked me "Are you Sanjay?". When I answered yes, he mentioned that he reads my blogs on team-bhp. He recognized my car and stopped to say hello.
He introduced himself as Rakesh and told us that he is from Bangalore. He was returning after doing Ganapatipule and Mahabaleshwar. I told him that I am headed for Goa and he surprised me by saying that he knew that! He does follow my XUV updates. He owns a black W6. I asked him if he is a member and he said that he gave up after a couple of tries.

(While I was amused and humbled, my wife was mighty impressed. )

We took lunch-place recommendation from him and he gladly obliged.
Here's a pic of Rakesh, his family and their black XUV500 W6.

Spotted a black Getz with "I Drive Safe" sticker parked in front of the Cuppa café at the Kalyan Nagar / Outer Ring road crossing. This was around 9 pm today (20 Aug) evening. Was it IronH4wk?

Unfortunately, no. Hawkmobile does not sport a IDS.

When starting for office, saw a taxi with LTD in our apartment complex which came for a pickup. From the font and color, it seems the sticker is fake:

Team-BHP Stickers are here! Post sightings & pics of them on your car-20130821_092857.jpg

And just before reaching office saw this Linea (with a Superman logo) on ORR signal, which has a "team-bhp" (just the lettering) cut out from a sticker (probably LTD?) and pasted in odd place. Unless you look sharply, it is very easy to miss:

True, seems to be fake! based on my below observation.

Letter O in LIVE TO ends near letter V of DRIVE where as in original sticker letter O of LIVE TO ends just where letter V starts in DRIVE

If my intuition serves me right, were you with your family(wife and a kid)? If so, then i believe we did interact!
Got it, yes there was white Fiesta parked and you are correct, I am with my wife and son, are you also on a road trip (TN car in KL territory?) am in kochi today on wards to Munnar tomorrow

OT - Hi Kousik, Is that Purva Fountain Square? If yes, I have seen couple of Team-BHP stickered cars in the parking lot.

Yeah - good observation. Well there are sure a handful of them. A month ago I gave away my spare stickers to a few residents which should increase the count a few more. But last time we tried a mini-meet, there wasn't much response.

Sorry for being (if you want to continue the discussion let's switch to PM).
