The Alto pictured is DL registered and is mine while the Baleno is of a friend and is KA registered. I have spotted a AP registered Pearl Silver Baleno and Red Civic often on campus usually parked in the recreation centre.[/quote]

Does the AP registered baleno have black momo wheels?? If yes, it must be Appu_Reddevil's. Not sure of the Red Civic though.

Yes the Baleno does have Black wheels with silver lining. I dont know the make, also has a good sound system I think.

One more unhappy experience with a black KL reg santro today at 5 pm outside LEELA Palace Bangalore.
i was coming out of Leela slowly with the right indicator on so that i could get into the extreme right hand lane and thereby take the U turn outside Manipal Hosp to head back to Koramangala area.
A black santro behind me honking quite heavily despite my indicator being on. then he overtakes me from the right which technically is correct, but certainly ill mannered, especially when my indicator is on. Most upsettingly, almost immediately after overtaking me he cuts to the left side in a slimy squeezy manner, just ahead of me to avoid the U Turn lane in which I am, by now and barge into the lane which takes traffic straight past Manipal hospital.
Whoever you are, my dear fellow, there is absolutely nothing to be gained by such foolhardy, squeezy sort of maneuvering and indeed, if my Scorpio had by some mischance banged into you from behind when you cut left so suddenly, you would have almost certainly have suffered some solid damage, not me!
The great irritant in this case was the bright yellow Live to Drive sticker pasted prominently on the rear left bumper of this Santro. Given the way he was driving I wouldnt bet too much on his living to drive peacefully for too long into the future - god forbid of course that anything bad happens to him though.
Hope he lives and learns from this!
Frankly it would be nice if all of us on this forum practised a bit of road manners and decent driving for a change.
I have half a mind to remove the TBHP sticker from my vehicle because I feel let down by the driving habits of some of our members and I do not want to be counted amongst that minority, even by extension and surmise!

Today's sightings,

I was driving carefully through Persistence lane karve nagar Pune in peak hour traffic, instantly one shine brown FIAT punto overtook me and with big smile face, without delay my brain replied Team BHP.

After that we had small 5 minutes meet in between honking cars and shouting autos, introduced each other first by handle and then by name. When I started driving again, my wife shouted on me "what is this?" I said with big smile "This is Team BHP dear".

He is Moulik (if I remember your name right) and his FIAT Punto. I fotgot your handle mate.

yet another instance of rogue behavior by people sporting TBHP stickers. don't know how many more are need for folks to realize having these stickers available to the general public isn't in the best interests of this community.

OT: I completely agree with you ironH4wk. Eventhough I am not a great spotter, I did find many a times, rash driving by people bearing T-bhp stickers. I also still dont understand why we need 13 stickers? Most of them will end up with friends, friend's friend and some rash drivers. Definitely not good for this community.

Spotted MX6 with his Maroon Ikon sporting a Drive Safe Team-bhp sticker in ghatkopar. Exchanged a thumbs up and asked each other our team-bhp handles.

Immaculate condition your car is in bro.

I have given up. More than 90% of the sightings posted here never get acknowledged. None of them are members and they way these people drive their cars, thinking he or she is Alonso driving for an F1 race.

None of my sightings are ever acknowledged I think I will spot taking pictures like an idiot every time I see a car with team-bhp stickers.

What we need is a 1-2 stickers exclusive to members only. This is the only sure way of knowing if the car belongs to a bhpian or not.

Absolutely!!
I regularly see this black Baleno in and around HSR layout with the LCLC sticker on the rear bumper, driven very very rashly. The other day the way he cut me off, the Bolero just missed his rear by inches. Couple of times, I have seen him ripping through the 17th and the 22nd cross roads, least bothered about pedestrians and other road users. Those junctions on both the roads are the most accident prone ones in the locality.

My wifey spotted a Grey Innova (KA registration ) with LTD sticker on the rear side above the Innova logo parked on Shastri Nagar 1st Main Road.

Who are you BHPian?
