Well, we did have a nice meet.

4 of us turned up : Amalji, Rajoy123, Naveen Raju and myself.

When I turned up, Amalji was fiddling around with his phablet( The Note, lol) and we started chatting.
When I found out that he owns an Etios, immediately the topic shifted to the Etios's interior quality, its linear turbo surge, and he explained to me how to properly shift to keep the engine in the powerband. (Thanks for that mate!)

Then Rajoy came in his spanking new i20, ICE pounding away (Man, I couldn't believe it was stock!! )

Then the topic shifted to the sunfilm ban, and we were all cursing the lack of privacy and increased heat levels in the cars.. ( or atleast I was, those two buggers have still got their films on!! GRRRRR...)

And lastly, Naveen came up in his swifty(needs no intro, that car is famous here in TBHP, lol)

Well, everyone was trying to console me, as my ride had gotten a rather large scratch and a dent as a gift from a 'petti' auto.

Thanks a lot guys for the stickers and Amalji for the phone holder.

God, TBHP sure introduced me to awesome friends!! I love you guys!!

There was a 'Indus Motors Customer Meet" event going on at the restaurant's hall, and we got to see the newly launched Dzire Tour up close.

I spoke to an Indus Motors sales staff who came for the event and he confirmed that Maruti will sell the Dzire Tour to private customers also.

I only clicked a few pics, I apologize for the poor quality, they were clicked in my mobile cam:

Thanks for the intro Vineeth. It was great meeting you guys especially Rajoy and Amal. Had lot of topics to talk, infact we even missed our cup of tea and stood the entire time (Guess we didnt notice that).

Anyways, good place to start with. Ample space and good ambiance expect for that "customer meet" and the poor soul who was singing.

We still have our drive destination missing which I think we can get it fixed in no time.
Nice meeting you guys!

Dear Mods, I know this is OT, but the incident happened on the day of the meet and so I thought I should post it here. Move/delete if inappropriate.

Well guys, the car is back from the MASS. They fixed her up pretty nicely, but I'm still mad at them for getting rid of my sticker!!

BEFORE:

You should've definitely given them a piece of your mind. They do definitely deserve a BLAST for this.

@speed_demon: Dont worry, i ll give u the stickers, and the repair work seems to be good. Check for color inconsistency in the newly painted area!

@all: please prepare the venue list for the monsoon drive.

Rajoybhai, the work done is good. Paintjob seems to be ok.

Well guys, for the monsoon drive, we have to start giving suggestions to location route, date, everything.

Firstly, is August 15th ok for everyone?

Then some venue suggestions:

Arthunkkal Beach is mine.

Well guys, do give your inputs, august is just around the corner..
