In case you find only stickered cars opposite hiranandani school and no bhpians around, chances are that everyone has moved to K3. So request you to reach there in case you reach late.

Hoping to see some photos from the last meet. We had I guess a turnout of almost 20 bhpians.

Thanks for putting up the pics SDP. I blame my lazy @$$ for the delay on my end!

I'm using the same metaphor coupled with Mumbai's bumper-kissing traffic as my excuse for reaching late that day. The Shenoy bros. were kind enough to wait for me and pick me up. Even Adi seconded that almost every route in every part of Mumbai was choc-a-bloc with heavy traffic hence I asked them to proceed without me.

This Friday's meet broke the last one's record with about 20 TBHPians showing up from about every part of Mumbai (ask me lol). However, a lot of members just dropped in briefly to say hello. I met most of 'em but might've missed a couple.

Discussions about Varun's marriage were in full swing that day!

Don't know what Raj is trying to convey; must be a carb!

Each one's expression here can be used for a meme.

Here it is as you requested Swapnil ;]

Doesn't this remind you of a similar incident involving a Range Rover being attacked?

Nice Snaps SDP and Hrishi. A good repository of memories forever. I was really happy to come for the meet that day as i always tend to miss it due to office.

Thomas Edison would've felt pretty bummed that day since his invention was replaced with more modern and efficient means of lighting. HIDs, projectors, LEDs......it was like a car lighting fest. Or actually, a competition!



Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-14.jpg
Rajneesh's City with a cool HID and projectors setup. Coupled with LEDs.


Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-15.jpg
Oh yes, another Sparkling Brown City. A particular owner was very happy!


Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn3302.jpg

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-23.jpg
The LEDs act as auxiliary lights when the HIDs are switched to hi-beam. Pretty novel for a aftermarket plug n play mod.


Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-26.jpg
Not to be left out, Varun had his long-time plans of installing these realized finally.


Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-25.jpg
Initially, I was left wondering about the provision for turn indicators.


Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-24.jpg
Woah....Cool.


Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-30.jpg



While most of the gang dispersed and a few others proceeded for dinner, Swapnil ushered me into Varun's car; he had his City parked somewhere else and wanted me to accompany him to get it. I wondered why......




Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-29.jpg
Holy moly. Him tooo???


Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-31.jpg
Care to spot the difference between Swapnil's and Varun's setups?


Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-27.jpg
Twin devils. One ain't exactly black though


Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-28.jpg
Swapnil virtually took the entire day off work to supervise the installation.


After a few tweaks here and there, we finally set off with Swapnil proudly flashing his high-beam at every opportunity he got. Since it was getting late, I couldn't stay back with the rest of the guys for dinner. Swapszone kindly dropped me till Borivali (I loved your bare-to-the-bones Maharashtrian attitude when that i10 made us wait at teh signal!).

It was somewhat of a rushed meet this time but I enjoyed it. I just wished a few others (arunshek, nishantbhatia, carzone, engrohit, minimalist, jignesh, powertrain, nishantdlv, SuperBee) were present too.

Thanks Hrishi! I have actually started looking forward to your pics and report. Also admire your enthu to brave the traffic and the bone-rattling ride in a ST to come to Powai to meet us.

Edit: Go easy with the smileys. Somebody would eventually count.

Excellent Pics Sanjay and Hrishi .

Hrishi you are also creating quite a reputation for yourself in the group for the funny captions that you provide.

Our Mini meets (so to speak) are already turning out to be misnomers with turnouts as big as 20 people and a decent group proceeding for Dinner after the meet. Let's keep up the momentum.

Hey, it's BEST or NMMT. But yeah, sometimes its ST too. Hats off to them though for providing unparalleled transport to almost every known corner of the universe!

And I did limit my post to two smileys but the other two were just text gestures. It got parsed into smileys lol.

I just hope I haven't gone OTT on the captions/comments and thus offended anyone.

With the growing participation at every meet, I'm quite sure that we'll have to rename the thread title soon!
