Awesome meet as usual! Special thanks to throttleking and Ashish Pallod, who year after year have taken up the mantle of organising the Mumbai-Pune Mega Meets and being the most gracious hosts!

It was great to meet so many of old friends and making new ones!

agnagpur, yogesh nagpal, coriollis, MonaroCV-8, Noopster, GTO, 1Self, honeybee & wife, Iqbal Veerji & Son, and a few others whose handles I can't remember at present, It was wonderful meeting you all.

F1fan, parimal_g, anilisanil, great meeting you guys again! F1fan, hope the damage to car is not much! parimal_g, make a quick decision on the car. anilisanil, sorry couldn't chat much, will catch up with you soon!

MX6 was wonderful meeting you after a long time and an absolute delight interacting with your little one!

WomanonWheels great seeing you again, and this time with the added bonus of meeting adorable Ethan!

Kalti.com gang Guys great seeing you again. Dan, KSM-Vtec, anku, Yogen, Chetan, Monty, Doctorque, lets keep the daily meets going guys!

HVK Sir & Gostelji, it was an honour to be in your company!

Good that all the members of the IPHE Mumbai chapter were present, barring no_enthu_da!

All in all a fantastic meet, great people, lovely cars, superb food, great ambience!

It was a memorable megameet, as always. Kudos to throttleking and Ashish Pallod for organising and being the life of the party (not necessarily in that order!)

Met some old faces and a lot of new ones. Made an entrance quite late since a lot of us were working on Saturday. Most of the Mumbai gang and a lot of the Punekars were ready to leave when we arrived. Still managed to meet a few of them, which was great.

womanonwheels- nice meeting up. Ethan is adorable.
akshay1234- Having read all your ownership threads avidly, was nice to finally meet up.
BolBolero- looking different with the haircut!
HVK- introduced wow to me and then ran away making explosive noises ( ). Caught up later- nice to meet you finally!
F1fan, Yogesh Nagpal, Danlalan (+9!), Doctorque, MX6, honeybee, coriollis-
nice to make your acquaintance and put faces/voices to the names!
I spotted Iqbal Veerji at a table when we entered (recognised from pics of another meet) but you must have left shortly after. Sorry to have missed you, next time then!
Usual Pune gang members who ecaped early- anilisanil, Scofield etc. NOT DONE! We need to have another meet now

Looks like another hit mega meet! I was feeling a bit low at missing out on this one due to some personal priorities, but the pictures brought back memories of last years mega meet. I hope the rest of the attendees have more pics and anecdotes to share with us absentees.

+1 on organising efforts AP bhau & TK v. anna

Great guys, Great Food, Awesome cars with an Awesome soundtrack, Awesome weather, loved every moment of it. Thank You Ashish and TK for organising it. Short account of the day from my eyes -

Left from Powai at 3, hoping to catch Bhpians at the EEH-JVLR signal. Reached at 3:20 and waited for half and hour, hoping to sync up with some Bhpians but no avail. Well, Panvel MCD it is then. Set a lesiurley pace and reched there at around 4:45. Interestingly, there was a Golden Micra parked there with the LTD, which didn't come for the meet.

Anyways, a short while lated Shome arrived in his Swift, and while we were comparing the New and Old Swift's, powertrain arrived in his Etios. Then the talk turned to the pains of maintaining Black cars in the monsoons when we saw a Red Cedia turn up. There are some cars that shout Bhpian just by looking at them and sure enough, mandheers, Iqbal Sir and his son turned up. Shortly, f1fan and parimal_g arrived in their Dzire.

Waited for a while to check who was coming, short jaunt down the E-Way, got separated after the toll, rejoined in Lonavala, reached Sunny's in a bit. More bhpians started turning up and the talk turned to street experiences, encounters with cops, an interesting Tata truck doing some deliveries when a beemer turned up, stopped, took a pic of the stickered cars and then parked itself. It was nice to meet Mr. Bhpian himself, GTO, and listen to him talking about the cars. If possible, can you please upload that picture of the cars you took?

Saw some old faces and a lot of new faces. Handles I remember are Shome, powertrain, Iqbal Sir, mandheers, f1fan, parimal_g, Yogesh Nagpal, Coriolis, siddheshbb, F150, throttleking, Aniket Tiwari, Shekhar, thumpingheart...apologies for missing out anyone, I do have a pretty bad memory.

Drive back was made eventful by the rain gods finally opening up and how! Still had old wipers so had to really slow down, and reached back to powai only after 12.

Great Meet, was really nice to see all you guys, looking forward to the next one now!

Edit - Saw two stickered cars who didn't make it to the meet, one Golden Micra at Panvel McD, left before 5, and a red Figo on the Eway, driven by someone who was in a hurry. Any idea about who these guys were?

Sir ji, this meet was first one in which we were not able to sit talk with each other for long time as we used to do earlier.I am sure this is due to night outing we had, everyone of us were in a hurry to head back home due to present latest,weired laws of that cop telling every mumbaikar must go to sleep at 10.30 pm. Sir ji, we reached home at 1.00am. I had taken ride with MANDHEERS ,It was nice to meet him for the first time ,and I was taking lift in his car along with my son and he agreed w/o any hesitation,thats all because we are Team Bhpians.
Sir ji,now it is your turn to make another meet as soon possible happen .Ican give you some idea for the place. Why not go for BTC at vashi.Lunch will be best as we had enjoyed months back.........

Looks like a missed a big one this time... I can see all of you had an awesome time together & the Cedia vs Sonata battle was epic. Having my own growls & roars at home from my 15 day old baby girl could not leave her behind for the meet. Will make sure she is with me for the next one in 6 months. Cheers guys...

Thanks TK and AP for organizing such a lovely meet. AP dear, I should have spent some more time chatting with you. Honored to be taken care of by HVK-sir and Bolero-sir. Then there were so many faces seen in previous meets and my good wishes to all of them. Also met up with new faces, especially the bravehearts of IPHE.

Lemme post just one worthy pic I got on behalf of BolBolero-sir and HVK-sir Name:  MegaMeet1.jpg
