That normally saves lots of time unless there is a jam at the Arekere Temple junction. I think you can regularly take that route.

Seems like everyone knows all these inner roads.

Coming back to this thread :
Spotted/rather followed a Wagon R (beige) with a LTD sticker yesterday at 6.25PM from Lake road (BTM Layout) to Arekere. Tried overtaking many times, but in vain coz of heavy traffic(and added mine is a BIG MAN SX4).

Man! Most of the sightings in Bangalore are from south. That's where the techie population is highest, eh? I am still waiting for my car to be spotted and right now it is somewhere in Nandini Layout (I think it is in North Bangalore, I am not so sure :-D ).

That'd be me my mate. I would've quoted the temp number but honestly even I don't remember it

I wonder why you couldn't make out if it was a Vdi or Ldi! If it was only the rear you looked at I got it de-badged

Its and Ldi though, would get the door handles and ORVMs painted tomorrow so then onwards I don't think anybody can actually make out if its an Ldi or Vdi, at least from outside, because rest of the things (wheel caps, fog lamps etc.) are already done.

First one *might* be swale84 - link to previous spotting w/ pic

OHC sounds like KSM-VTEC to me! Though i wouldn't call his car light blue...

Well, tried everything Amitoj said but all in vein :-(, flashed lights, wave hand, roll down the window while overtaking and then overtook to show my sticker. But nadaa, no reaction. Spotted a Silver Safari (KA05MC ****) around 10PM today with LTD and another TBHP sticker on the spare wheel cover and two more stickers on the top of rear windshield. I was following you after Onmobile and then overtook near Adarsh Rythm. I proceeded towards L&T south city and you took left turn towards Bannerghatta road, Arekere gate.

I was a young teen in a White Government Indigo.
I put down my window and tried waving at you, but then realized you probably wouldn't understand (there's no TBHP sticker on my Indigo).
Who are you mate?

Yup, the OHC is definately KSM-VTEC & mostly the Ikon is correct as well
Excellent memory Rehaan

P.S - Your right about the light blue part, but i still dont know what to call that hue of blue.

Default Spotted at Ambala

I spotted your Gypsy (reg. no. 5440) yesterday (18th June) at 1737 hrs at Punjab Haryana border while coming to Delhi. I paid toll at Shambhu Border and started towards Ghagghar river bridge at a normal speed .

I think you came from Banur side all of a sudden and overtook me from left without any indication, squeezing me on the extreme right of the road. Neither I was driving bad nor I did any type of misbehave on the road. May be you were coming after a long drive.

I was not having Team BHP sticker on my car so didn't say "Hi" to you. You seem to be a senior BHPian. Please help me identify yourself.

Cheers!

If I am right, it is A-jay's Gypsy.
