Team-BHP meet on a working day! In the middle of the city! Somehow I had a doubt that "popat hone wala hain".

Thank you guys for turning up and saving from the "popat" moment!

Had a nice time meeting all the gurus of BHP. Special thanks to SDP for organizing and the sub-organizers. Engrohit for the treat. And the sponsor (unknown) of the vada pav and chai.

The drive on the Eastern Freeway was great as well! Will upload some pics on the Mumbai Traffic thread later.

It was a Wonderful evening, and must say SDP your Duma was awesomely maintained from Inside too.

Bad that I had to leave early and missed chai and Vada pav, but nevertheless it was fun time.

Looking forward to more such meets every fortnight. Way to go people...

Hello,

SDP has clicked couple of photographs and these will be posted here probably on Monday.

Hello All,

Today's was definitely successful. Thank you all for coming. Frankly speaking we never expected more than 5 / 6 people to come on working day. But it was great to see people driving from Town and Mulund for the meet.

Thank you once again and hope to meet again next fortnight.

Hi
Noted that you attended the meet.Good of you to do that.
I too have attended only one meet which was at Delhi Darbar(between ghodbunder and Dahisar check posts).
The great thing of the meet is that you dont feel out of place and a couple of hours flee by.
Regards

Hi faustus77

Yes, I'm glad I did. And I might be there for a few more. Also got a chance to try the Eastern Freeway today in the bargain. There's my post on that:

Time did fly by and I did leave quite a bit later than I was expecting to.

Felt great meeting all of you guys. Having been a Mumbai bhpian for 2 years and having been to only one mumbai meet, it was great. It so happened that the turnout was unexpectedly good.
Thanks to SDP, Jignesh et al for organizing it.

Seems there was a decent turnout. Hope you guys had a great time.

SDP, what a brilliant Idea.

I guess, the poll can be closed for now and re-opened for the next meet.

The meet was a load of fun and it was really good to de-stress on a friday eve talking cars. I hope turnouts at future meets is also as good. Lets keep the momentum going.

@engrohit - Are we planning to raid the new Haagen-Dazs store in the next meet?

Pics and a quick report:

esma1981 was the first to reach Powai. He called up engrohit who was in touch with me and Jignesh.

The meeting time was not best for good snaps. So please excuse.

First set of cars at the meeting place. esma1981's Polo GTI, EagleEye's Laura, my XUV and Jignesh's WagonR
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-01-dsc_0505.jpg

Although the meeting was at 7pm, we are there at 6:30pm. engrohit offers Nature Valleys. We munch on them while we wait, call others and ogle at cars passing by. A Hayabusa and a Evoque provide for good eye-candy.

A vTec joins in. That's Desmosedici walking towards us.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-02-dsc_0507.jpg

A few calls and slowly the group starts to build up.

Karan's 747 lands, flanked by Adishenoy's Estilo and Superbee's FFE Swift.

Beaming faces.

We spot a famous BHPian's white XUV parked. If this gentleman would have decided to join the meet, he would have to just come out of his home, walk 25-30 steps to reach the meeting place! Unfortunately he is out of country.
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-07-dsc_0517.jpg

Adi does call him and we have a brief chat. So in a way, raj_5004 did join the meet virtually!

We make calls and realize that there are a few people who won't be able to make it. ghodlur. latentpotential. metalbuff. gaddiwale?

We move to the chai-tapari and someone suggests going to the K3 instead.

K3 provides food and the much needed light for snaps.

A group photo.
From L to R: EageEye, AdiShenoy, Bertie_Woosert, Jignesh, Superbee, VVB8530, powertrain, karan561, engrohit, esma1981, gomzi.

With flash.

Overall didn'ty realize how 2 hours flew by. Fantastic meet!

Hello SDP & EagleEye,

Thank you for capturing the pictures & equally great individual close up pictures.

The meet was indeed good & 2 hours literally flew away. Hope to see equally large number of people turning up every fortnight.

SDP, can you please send me high resolution images of above pictures via email?

Thanks,

Forgot to thank engrohit for guiding me to the venue. SDP and Jignesh for the 'mini-lifts' during the 'mini-meet'. Both cars nicely maintained. Good photography done by SDP and EagleEye.

Just a correction. I own a Polo GT and not a GTI(I wish)
