Asking because I stay in Wanowrie, can catch up sometime!
My office is located at Sacred World.
Sure! That would be nice. How do we get in touch? I am new to these forums and am not sure how to go about that.

What you can do is:

A] Exchange e-mail id's through the forum, and over e-mail, exchange your cell numbers.

B] From your current 8 posts- go beyond 25- quickly. And thus, the PM (Private Messaging) facility will be enabled. And then- Chat away privately- with any member you want!

BTW- How useless- in your opinion is Oxford Nissan?

I am not really comfortable having any kind of contact info out on the internet. As it is I am super fedup of telemarketing/email spam.

Heh! I would rather prefer quality than quantity.

From my experience, I wouldn't call them useless. I would just say they do not realize the customer is not an idiot. Trying to tell the customer, it will take 3 weeks for deliver, after he asks, while he is taking out the cheque book for the booking payment, is not good business practice. If you do it, the customer goes to the other dealer.

You know what- Sometimes one has to make do. Type out your posts- quickly.

Neways- Oxford Nissan felt like a real crappy place. I went in Pandit FIAT- Everything excellent! The A/C was set at a tad low temp though- Gave me a headache.

At Volvo (Planet Exclusive)- and Ford (again- Planet)- Both at MCCIA Chambers- at first attempt- No one attended. The salesman dealing with the EcoSport- and of course, the Fiesta felt crass, rude-and uninformed.

At Volvo- I got a distinct impression that FIAT's dealership experience was better. Neways, the guy attending was a good fella- I came in wanting an S60. And here- He was trying to sell a used, 32k run 2009 XC90- at a lovely price!

Nissan was utter crud. I don't know why- but I found FIAT's marketing, and all other factors to be excellent!

Pardon for going- off topic.

Mangalore Spotting,
When: 09-02-2015, Monday around 11.00 am.
Where: Balmatta Road.
I was behind you in my White Swift.

PS: Also spotted a swift with LTD sticker, but I normally don't post or try for an acknowledgement this particular sticker spotting because it is the most popular among Non-BHPians. I only report if I find another sticker with LTD sticker.

Well i have a little issue that i face with fellow members that i bump into on the roads. Like there was this blue maruti 800 loaded with team-bhp stickers on palm beach road. I was on the bike, showed him a thumbs up while at the signal and the person looks at me like what you want to say. I figured he might be thinking i was showing a thumbs up to the lady sitting besides him. so i indicated towards the sticker on his windscreen. No response of any acknowledgement still.

Worli sea face a scorpio with team-bhp sticker on the rear, i am in my fiat, give a thumbs up. cold no response..Gives a look like what the hell are u doing kinds.

So is there some way one can signal a team-bhpian on the road, without being shown attitude and not understanding why someone is showing one a thumbs up sign. Thank you guys.

Silver Swift with a LTD sticker on the right corner of the rear bumber spotted often around Balmatta and Falnir? #514? That would be me.

Black baleno with a GOT BHP sticker on the rear bumper would be me as well.

Nope James, not your ride I guess. Because it was a white Swift I spotted, and by the way it was driven - rashly and arrogantly, I doubt it was a BHPian.

And as alston mentioned if it is the 514 silver swift which was / is owned by Sudhirban, I would have immediately recognized as I have spotted it multiple times before at Pandeshwar. Now I spot a white XUV 500 with LTD sticker on the rear right in that place. Maybe Sudhirban has upgraded.

Thanks alston. I didn't try to get an acknowledgement because I was behind him and since my ride doesn't sport stickers on the front, it would have difficult for him to guess what I was trying to do.

Alston, Sudhir has graciously lent me his swift. Ive had it since a year as my dad is ill and isnt able to get into the baleno. I didnt want to part with the baleno and buy a higher car.

Mahesh, a white XUV with GOT BHP (not LTD) sticker is Sudhirs ride since almost a year. The #514 swift still belongs to him. It sports Deep Dish mags now!

Met Rama and his grey Wagon R yesterday at Sec 18 market Noida. The guy was very passionate about TBHP. He shared with me a few long distance drives that he undertook under the guidance of HVK sir. He told me that he used to drive a little rash sometimes, but since he pasted the stickers on his car, he has become more concerned about the way he drives cause he feels he represents the community. He was also wearing the TBHP hoodie. The point that I am making here is that he is not on TBHP. He said that he tried registering twice but his request was turned down both times. IMHO people like him should be a part of the community. Can there be a system where a tbhpian can recommend like minded people? Just a suggestion. Hope this is not off topic.

I was thinking the same ! I could see his pic on his profile and I believe I saw him in Aao-Khao but since I wasn't sure, I couldn't say 'hi' .
I'd not make that mistake again !

Thanks for the proxy-acknowledgement !
