I think i heard about Team BHP in 2008 while I was browsing for random car reviews. I distinctly remember i was searching for 'Baleno vs City' reviews. I wanted to see which car packs more punch and which would be better to drive and that sort of things. So i simply enetered Baleno vs City in the Google search bar and came across a thread in which one of the members wanetd to make a choice between the two cars. So i started browsing that site and found it really informative as all the write ups were pertaining to the Indian car scene (i am not much into imports!). At first i joined the site and forgot all about it. Only recently i started playing an active role and i was extremely happy when i progressed for a Newbie to a BHPian! I love this site!

Back in 2007 i was out for a drive in my 800 on a sunday afternoon.There was a traffic jam and i was next to a esteem with a loud exhaust.The sound of the car was amazing and i started to wish & desire that my car sounded like that too.So i started hunting for the term "sports exhaust" on the web and thats when i came across team-bhp.Read all about performance exhaust from Automech and viper ,settled for a Automech all thanks to a team-bhp

Few months back I saw a BMW Z3 on a trip to Mumbai so after reaching back home, I just googled to check out some pics of the same and therefore bounced on TBHP. Needless to say, ever since I've been hooked to TBHP. I'm really proud to be a member here.

At least you can get away with browsing during work

As for me, I heard about T-Bhp when I was reading reviews of the then newly launched Grand Vitara. Came across Samurai's thread and I joined the group.

Happend to find it through search engines, while searching for info on cars. I tried for information on new car launches and their reviews and google popped up T-BHP once, again for another car and again T-BHP and again and again. then i added T-BHP to my fav list. Then started my journey of regular visit to this site and eventually got addicted. This has become a routine in life that i log into T-BHP site every day and look in for more information and more and more and i am always satisfied witht eh results. Thanks to T-BHP.

Default Google is top recommender

I was googling about some reviews of Hatchs from brands other than MS, for first hand information from people owning them.(being remote place, I dont have even sight of many other cars !)
But, I would like to add,
almost 90% of time, if you enter proper keywords in google (about car/some tech in car ) you get tbhp in top 3 results..
Try it!

Care.

Ace.

I was looking at some reviews of newly launched cars, specifically Civic back in 2007 and came to know about T-BHP through Google. I remained a guest visitor to the website until last year and finally decided to join the largest car community in India in August 2009.

Voted for 'thru search engines'.

When I decided to go in for a new sedan replacement for my Maruti Suzuki Versa, I came across WWW.TEAM-BHP.COM by googling for reviews for sedans. I was amazed at the unlimited ocean of knowledge that was inviting me to take a plunge! Then, as they say, the rest is history: I applied for my membership and it was accepted within a week or so. After extensive research on various threads of Team BHP and after going through a lot of reviews of various brands/models/versions, here I am, a proud and satisfied owner of Fiat Linea 1.4 FIRE, 5500 km+ old. Thanks a lot to Team BHP for that.

I curse myself for not having found this site earlier - would have made selling my old Zen so much easier. Found it on google while looking for reviews/comments on DDiS v/s QJD and wow - this is a treasure-trove of information.

Great job guys - particularly the hard part - keeping it still useful after many years. So easy to lose interest in this day/age. Thanks.
