Great meet today, indeed was a pleasure to meet all the BHPians. Also good to have met with all the mods (GTO, Rehaan, moralfibre, noopster & Akshay1234) who were extremely friendly & great fun to be with.

Haven't clicked much pics but sharing the few which i did;

Lovely pics!! Thanks Karan561 for sharing 'em. Seeing you all certainly has brought a smile on my face , but looks it didn't rain, can spot your shadows, still with so many BHPians driven gathered, the meet looks a grand success! Keep revvin'!

Well as it's proven once again that the meteoroLOGICAL department has no LOGIC whatsoever. A dry day indeed for us all and our cars, not a single drop, wanted to see my car all dirty when I got back but the guy who washes it will be happy!
Nice meeting everyone, it was something different from the usual schedule and whole lot of fun, along with all the drool worthy rides that you guys got along with you. Will try not to take wrong exists next time around and stay with the pack. Looking forward to more such meets and being a part of them too. Adios, hope everyone got home safe!

What a lovely turnout for a meet that was so casually planned!

About 30-odd attendees, most from Mumbai though a few from Pune made our presence felt

Sunny da dhaba remains a favourite venue for mega meets, the food was nice as always- thanks Rehaan for managing the ordering and collections

There were a lot of people to meet in the 2 hours or so I was there, so apologies to those I couldn't engage with. Was nice catching up with The Saint and his 1.8L TSI + DSG modded Polo with the original GTI rims! Had a nice long chat with Ace77 and sat in his 3GT as well. Also my first experience riding in a 1.6 S-Cross (moralfibre's).

We should do this more often!

The rains kept away, sadly, but we had a nice cloudburst in Pune after I picked up my car from moralfibre's after dropping turboholic off. Would have been awesome if it were a true monsoon meet.

Was a terrific Sunday guys! Great meet, fun people, nice drive and delicious food...was really nice to meet up with everyone . Best part is, toward the end, most people were like "when's the next one?".

Drove home, chilled for a bit and watched the Canadian Grand Prix. A perfect day in a petrol-head's diary.

Missed meeting up and feeling so damn disappointed. Thanks to a deep gash on my foot which happened on Saturday. Was off my feet (well kinda literally) entire day Sunday because of the injury and the TT shot taken on Sat which was hurting my arm as well. Hope to make it next time.

Glad to see the pics. Hope to see many more including the F-Pace

Superb meet and Excellent pics, thanks Karan561, SMJet and Johannskaria for the wonderful pics.
I was very late - but better late than never - and it just couldn't get any better than this. Tried to catch up with as many as possible.

Icing on the cake - GTO doing the honors of Stickering my Aria...thanks a lot man !
Johannskaria, excellent shot

Hardly any traffic on the way back, reached home in 30mins

Lets plan the next one, I just wish we get a place where we can all line up our rides and take a pic - maybe on a bridge or riverside - El classico!

Cheers All!

Was awesome meeting everyone!

We reached 25 minutes early and there was already a collection of cars!

Checking out Tanveer_2558's 530d:

Rumour has it that another manufacturer strategically planted this Spark at our meeting spot to make GM look bad

The lineup continued to grow:

As did the group of BHPians:

And we're off. As you can see, the Abarth turnout was substantial:

Yes, It was wonderful meeting all of you for the first time, and checking out the wide range of cars. I really enjoyed myself. Had to keep my mouth tightly shut to stop myself drooling all over GTO's BMW while taking a long peek inside!!!
Loved the Polos GT and Abarth Puntos.

Late last night, it got me thinking. When will we get a Vento S or a Rapid S, with big VG Turbo, discs on the rear wheels, and bigger discs on the front wheel? , better wheel/tyre combo, suspension (independent rear multilink ????) , sports exhaust?
Can this be done for 5-7lakhs ?
There are people who need the boot space and do not /cannot go for pricer cars like the Beemers.
These people will line up to buy such a car, and I will be at the head of the queue!
