1. Medavakkam
2. Couple of years. It is improving for sure.
3. I feel better to be in the outskirts, mainly the roads are wide enough. We dont miss city much 'cos velachery and OMR is closeby and most of the requirements are covered there.

Enquiries on Insurance claims for flooded vehicles were not attended properly and am scared of asking them to coninue with the engine opening process. Please PM me.Mine is a SWIFT LDI

Wow, nice to see an exclusive Tambaram community in TBHP

As for my SWIFT, I've managed to move it from Vishnu cars to MSM last Sunday. Vishnu cars doesn't have a tie up with leading insurance providers and hence to do any claim based repairs one has to cough up money up front and then get it reimbursed. Further, being a new set up they dont have a competent set of folks to handle major works like an engine overhaul.

Adjacent to Lakshmi theater in Chromepet there is another MASS by name VBK motors who've been around for sometime. Probably one can try doing the routine check up or the Free/ or Paid services there. Nothing can come close to the MSM quality I presume

Yes, we can in JAN, if that is the case. Can we have a quick meet this weekend? Who ever is available (even if it 50% attendance, still good)

What is your opinion?

@ Vishnu: On 9th Dec, just when the rains were coming to a close, I took the subway as was my custom. I should admit that I had used my Swift in the 2008 floods at Tnagar to ferry my inlaws out of the Income Tax quarters with water flowing over the bonnet for a kilometer and half and more than a 100 times in this subway too. I always boasted about this engine's capacity to wade through hip-high floods. The other day, there was a school van ahead of me and the water level was tyre high. I followed the van and no sooner than it cleared the waters there was a wave of water rushing down from the curvy subway back on to the bonnet. This surge of water killed the engine and water started seeping in destroying the speakers on all four doors and luckily I could save my guitar and laptop before the water level rose. The car was already in the middle of the subway where the water level was rising due to springs from the wall and then the water pump in the subway was not working too.

The previous night a Scorpio was caught there too, but then the water levels were too high in the night when it was still pouring, the onlookers commented

The estimation comes close to a lakh and the insurance cover comes to 70k.The music system, seat covers etc would add up to another few grands I guess

My bad! Blame our good-for-nothing drainage systems (as if there is one in place )
Hope she will be ok once the damage is done to your pocket!

I have lived close to 25 years in and around Tambaram. Currently i stay near perungalathur. Give me five crores (yeah five crores would do)to make me move out this area. I am too soaked in tambaram that i cant stand the city. I am always fine to drive 20kms to watch a movie or shop. I can stay at my inlaws during weekends when wife wants city. My cricket friends have stayed in the same place for the last fifteen years and i live farther away from the highway or station that its such a peaceful place. And my home is next to a park, coudnt ask more for open space.

@JEHU.
i never take that subway for that reason. I hate taking my car into any water body let alone that dreadful subway. Worst case if i want to get into east tambaram i happily take the T-Sant fly over and drive down.

MSM rocks. Stick to a mechanic and demand for the same everytime you leave the car. Thats what i have been doing for the last 4-5 service. I service every 5k(my Swift).

Few old memories include the numerous days in the railway ground, numerous days in the ever so famous "hotel rajagopal" a bengali "Sundal shop", the juice shop opposite MCC and what not....hail Tambaram

Hi All, one thread lead to the other and finally this. Great to see a community in and around Tambaram area.

I live in Purushotham Nagar, Chromepet and have been since 1997. yeah, initially had to go through lots of struggle with MIT flyover construction etc., now enjoyong the fruits. This side of Chromepet, is reasonably good with pretty OK roads and all convenience nearby.

Now, if you see, all the essentials have reached chromepet area starting from good restaurants, hospitals, auto showrooms and this area is developing as well quite fast. I am happy about this place and it is great to know that there are several members living around this area.

I drive a Ford Fiesta Moondust silver colour with Team-BHP stickets on the rear bumper. So, if somebody spot me, just try and wave and we could chat for a while. It will be great to meet you all guys.

Swami
