Amazing weather for driving. Reached Thane McD. Waiting for drive to lick in once everyone joins. Btw, I am in Amaze Silver 3329. Available on 9619939969 if there is a whatsapp group. :-)

The following timeline is to be followed:

1) Borivali team departs BEFORE 6:00 a.m.

2) Mulund team departs BEFORE 6:10 a.m.

3) Everyone leaves from Thane McD at 6:30 a.m. SHARP.




All this is being done in order to avoid the morning truck traffic. Those who are late, can catch up on the way. We shall not wait for late-comers. We stop for breakfast at Kalyan. So in case someone is running very late, they can catch us up at Kalyan. Please be in touch with Swapnil. His mobile no. is +91 9820107016



Here are the maps once again for everyone's reference.

Borivali meeting point.

Attachment 1266672



Mulund meeting point.

Attachment 1266673



Thane meeting point.

Attachment 1266674





A few more pointers:

1) Please carry enough water and snacks with you.

2) Do carry umbrellas/raincoats.

3) Please check your cars properly before the drive. Especially tyre pressure and windscreen washer fluid level.

4) Please carry enough cash with you.

5) The lunch at Sushant Resort which is a bit ahead from Malshej would be a buffet. The cost for the same would be Rs. 300 per head. Same cost for Veg and Non-veg.

6) Please drive sanely and follow all traffic rules. Do not forget to carry RC copy, Insurance and PUC certificate and your driving license.

7) Strictly no ALCOHOL.



Here’s the updated list. Will be updating it and will post the final list tonight.

It is raining like typical Bambaiyaa Baarish! I'm sure it must be raining heavily outside Bombay and at Malshej too.

Waiting for the pics guys, hope you'll had a great drive!

Just got back some time back.

Huge meet indeed & the after breakfast part of the drive till Murbad was awesome ! Me & Rohan (530d) got a little carried away and so were a little ahead of the troupe but it was amazing fun while it lasted ! I hear the roads post Murbad are surreal but then going all the way wasnt an option for me so itl just have to wait.

We had to turn back from Murbad and saw many of you on our drive back. While it was fun catching up with the usual faces (vvb, sid , adi, arun , sid , speedy & co) i couldnt meet most of the new ones unfortunately but nothing that a powai meet cant fix so hopefully will see new faces there !

All in all it was great seeing such enthusiasm and a massive turn out. Petrolheads indeed. Last but not the least a to swapnil and the coordinators for organising and volunteering to help out. A brief but fun experience personally ! Until the next drive ...

Oo, you guys turned back quite soon. Even speedy was supposed to return earlier right? Wasn't he driving with you'll?

And it is a tacit thing. When you have 6 cyls under the hood and a superb ribbon of tarmac for them to run on, it is easy to get carried away a 'little'

Yea the 3 of us were supposed to turn back early but the group was so big and dispersed that he got caught behind somewhere and didnt notice us turning around at Murbad. So he turned around after going a lot further.

Speedy and I, we also got a little carried away, the result of which was that we were 23Kms ahead of Murbad, the place from where speedy was suppose to turn back, I did try intimating speedy by giving constant upper-dipper signals but I guess it did not strike him. I guess after a while he must have decided to check with someone on the phone and found out that everyone had already left. So speedy took a u-turn and asked me to go ahead, all alone. I opted to park aside on the road and waiting for others but after a good 20mins wait I took a u-turn came a few kms behind and then I saw the "Gunning VW Group" this is where i joined them, and another session of an excellent drive started.

Guy's this was my first drive with fellow bhpians and the drive was amazing, it was beyond my expectations. I never felt like I was driving solo. The weather was magical, never knew there was someone like this so close to Mumbai.

A big thanks to Swapnil, Aman and everyone else to put in efforts to make this event successful. Looking forward for more amazing drives to come in near future, won't be missing any henceforth.

I was supposed too but since Yash and Myself were the last cars we were having some fun..atleast trying to make the single lane roads exciting. I did not notice the guys at Murbad and we carried on to 30 odd ams from the destination, from where i turned back.

HAHA,yes Yash, but it was fun. I actually thought everyone had gone ahead and was trying to make the most of it..playing catch up.. . I did see you flashing but thought you wanted to pass me, so decided to make you work for it..


I was great meeting everyone and a nice drive, sorry i had to turn back but the next time shall be there till the end. A great effort by our co-ordinators and a superb turn out by our friends. I can't wait for the next drive and hope its some place where the car legs can be properly stretched. Cheers Guys.
