Spotted a Forester today at Worli. Driven by an elderly gentleman. He didnt seem to notice my sticker, but I noticed his. There were lots of stickers (other than TBHP too), and the number was 7164 if I am not wrong.

Spotted this TN-09-AV-XXXX Green Bolero in Chennai GST Road near Perungalathur at around 8 PM.

Could not signal as the traffic was high. Who is this ?

Good, disciplined driving pal

Yesterday looked like a spotting monday:

1. Red Ritz numbered 4231, with LTD sticker on the hatch door around 5:30pm. Hope you stopped a while at BTM 28th main seeing the sticker, I was busy on a call. I finally made up to you near reliance mart, bannerghatta road, and followed you till meenakshi temple. Nice driving mate!

2. Blue punto numbered 6432, with Got BHP? sticker around 5:30pm, spotted at 28th main, being followed till reliance mart, where you took the left. No offence, but you looked to be driving in a hurry.

3. Sedan, non-private vehicle numbered 1413, with LTD sticker on left hand side of the rear bumber, at yeshwantpur railway station around 8:15pm.

After a dry run of alomost 2 months (and that too driving in Bangalore traffic every day during peak hours) I finally had 4 spottings over the last few days...

1. Maroon Zen KA 03 MB 3xx spotted on ORR on Friday morning with Love Cars Live Cars sticker

2. White Fusion KA 04 ME 4xxx with LTD stickers that I have been spotting every day at (wonder of wonders) aour office parking!

3. Swift LDi KA 03 MJ 5xxx with LTD and I Drive Safe stickers at Marathahalli junction at 10ish yesterday morning. I was right behind you at the signal and gave 3 long flashes - wonder if you noticed, but kudos mate - you were driving safe.

4. Silver Santro AP 09 xxxx at around 6:15 on Old Airport Road - not a very relaxed drive though.

Looks like I spotted the same Swift yesterday morning at Marathahalli.

Also, the Silver Santro in my earlier post had a different looking T-BHP sticker than the ones we get in the package, with the text "Redlining the Indian Automotive Scene" printed below www.team-bhp.com - much like the tacho sticker, only without the tacho. Probably this design is from an earlier lot?

I saw a Padmini black yellow taxi with a "I Drive Safe" sticker on the boot on the Western Express Highway near Andheri but was driving so could not manage a pic.

You can buy them stickers off any sticker shop now!
I have seen several sticker shops showing off team-bhp stickers as a part of their design.
I wouldn't be surprised if we saw autos with team-bhp stickers

Should not that be DTL (Drive to Live)?

Sorry if I am going off topic.

But sad part is 90% of our spottings get no reply from the owners.

One serious qtn: Have anyone spotted LTD sticker on an auto? I think I spotted one near Vidhan soudha signal couple of weeks back. Before I could confirm he went zig-zag and disappeared. But after seeing the post above about sticker availability in local store, I suspect it could be the same. But in Bangalore?, I still have my doubts.

@rishie - I agree, for auto/bus/taxi drivers we may have to release a new sticker DTL (Drive To Live) instead of Live to Drive.
