I have team bhp stickers and would love to wave out to a fellow bhpian.(have done quite a few times )

But if someone is honking ,flashing lights on and on to get my attention that would kinda annoy me.

I am sure few/many of us even share rides with our wife/parents ,they dont know the person honking/flashing lights behind them is a t-bhpian

Hope you get the drift Happy Spotting !

p.s:- Thats not me in the lancer

Looks like no one was able to spot my car in the last 8k kms cross country

But I happen to spot a sticker on this Swift 25th Aug @ 8:25am between Thane and Valsad.

Dear Mate, it happens, Team Bhp is a craze among the motorists and easiest way to connect to it is to buy stickers set. More so, when we give signals on sighting a member bhpian/guest bhpian their way of acknowleding may differ. But on the whole, it all shows the popularity of this forum. Cheers to that. By the way which tbhp sticker it has?

thanks

Spotted a DL 8C registered white Honda City with LTD sticker in the campus of GGS Indraprastha University, Delhi.

Any takers?

Not really? I honked for maybe half a second and flash beams for equally short time. Nothing more nothing less.

I do not think that would count as annoying on a single lane, nowhere to go .

How about we mutually decide upon a standard code of acknowledgment whenever we spot a bhpian on road?
Cuz the honking, flashing and/or waving may not be interpreted by everyone owing to the fact that Rajesh pointed out.

What I feel is when we follow another BHPian with a sticker on his car, we try to tell the BHPian moving next to us that hey me too is a member of Team-BHP and to express this feeling we try to get the attention by honking or flashing lights but I think (personal opinion) it adds a little confusion. It is really hard to understand that the car behind is looking for side or for what signals are given.

In most of the cases, till we move ahead of the car next to us the driver of car is completely unaware about the sticker on our car. I myself have experienced this.

There are solutions for this like kdp95 suggested to have a common protocol or Mods can come up with new sticker (like bright Yellow LTD one, may be 2"X2" or which looks good) which can be pasted on the front wind screen (preferably from inside) or we can put any of the existing sticker but what attention yellow will get I think other stickers will miss. It can be of similar size to the sticker which we usually put on our cars for our society/parking entry.

As this sticker can be seen in rear view mirror so the possibility of get acknowledgement from BHPian ahead will increase.

Good Evening mate, the standard acknowledgment signal for tbhp sightings has been discussed earlier too at length, but no viable solution reached as yet. May be something would work out in future till then keep it to flashing and waves.

thanks

So your ride has got a twin.
when was it if you remember? I have never seen this in Mira Road.

Also, was anyone with a Brown Manza with MH02 CN registration visiting Akurli Industrial estate today morning? A LCLC sticker on the rear windsheild at around 10AM to noon.

Hi mate, good evening, i second your idea with a slight addition, sticker size perfect, color coding perfect, placement great but to further have an authentication why not include the member's tbhp forum handle on it? I think it will be a good idea though slightly time consuming but a meeting among the moderators can be done from every state and these specific sticker can be obtained from the respective moderators. I too hope to hear more potent views/ideas on it.

thanks

I see the ideas expressed above but I'm questioning the viability. We have a set of stickers being delivered, if you include a new sticker for members to recognize each other, these might be used by non-members too since stickers are on sale for everyone.

Secondly, I have noticed one BHPian who has made a custom sticker of his handle and has put it on his car. We have so many members and I don't think it's easy to make custom stickers for even a 1000 folks forget the 2 other zeros you may want to add on it.

I for once don't bother about lights or honks. 95% of the time the car behind is flashing lights for the heck of it even in bumper to bumper traffic, you give way to acknowledge and they speed ahead. Turns out to be a non-member. Has happened too often.

Lots of cars in Delhi-NCR with stickers. I only bother with those I've seen in meets or those taking out their phones to click pictures. The rest I don't bother with. Lots of times my wave has gone ignored and I feel silly by the end of it.

My suggestion like a member has done previously get your custom made sticker with your handle and stick it where it's visible. I personally won't do it cause I get spotted maybe once every 2-3 months.
