NCR Spotting. Spotted a white scorpio (UP16 **6228 ) on DND an hour back with a live to drive sticker on the rear windshield towards Delhi. Flashed but no response. I was in my ritz with a live to drive sticker too on the rear bumper. I hope it was a member.

Yet to be spotted with my ride, wish i had been in bangalore(Ironh4wk sir would spot me ). Spotted a white swift ldi with "IDS" heading towards valasaravakkam through the link road from ramapuram to mega mart in alwarthirunagar, number was stickered in a fancy manner. That said, i have spotted quite a number of tbhp fake stickers too.

You got me! I didn't spot you though, maybe I was caught up in trying to avoid the 2 wheelers squeezing into the gaps.

You're right. This was not my usual daily commute. I was heading towards NICE road and out of the city, since we had some team outing yesterday at Golden Palms resort, Tumkur road.

Maybe a feel-good factor. May be he wants to be a part of our team but does not know how to join .

It may help boost their self esteem\confidence while riding\driving.

Hordes of other reasons too.

It is something similar to people who sport Ferrari stickers on their ride\drive.

I came to know that sticker shops charges hefty rates for copying tbhp stickers. Another and the most important point is that now people have got the false impression that cars bearing tbhp stickers are meant to drive rashly. No, it's not just a matter of thought. Many young freaks who don't know to drive responsibly, often paste those fakes and god knows what all they do on the roads. Now as the site's reputation is on the line, I think tbhp should stop making stickers available for non members and necessary action should be taken against those copy cats. Adding to the note, I often see the above figo driven rashly all across chirayinkeezhu and attingal with 'I follow TeamBhp.com' on the rear.
Maybe the Figo guy wants to be a part of team bhp. But if he wanted, he could have purchased the set from our forum.

I feel:

1. we should stop selling them to non members and at the same time get 'team bhp' registered as a trade mark.

OR

2. Have a sticker set exclusively for members, sort of like "MEMBER - TEAM BHP" .

Imitation is the best form of flattery.

You did justice to your pseudo-name there. Sure you got hawk-eyes mate. Keep spotting

This is another hall of fame addition. There was one more taken maybe a year ago by H4wk. He had taken a pic of LTD or 'got bhp?' on a car parked facing the other way on the opposite side of the road, that too an inverted image shot through the ORVM . H4wk might know which one that is.

I have never been able to spot or capture a stickered car on the opposite side ever, in spite of being on the right most lane through most of my office commute journey. How H4wk does all this, and manages to take a snap so quickly is baffling! Heights of mirror-observation skills

I agree with you KarthikK. I spot at least 2-3 cars with TBHP stickers on the road every day. Given the heavy traffic on ORR concentration on driving must be of utmost importance. Everytime I spot a car with TBHP sticker all i can do is feel happy about the spotting. Unless I am in a traffic signal its very tough to click photos on the go.

How H4wk does this is a mystery? Does he have any special set up or camera to click such nice spottings?

Spotted this Red Estilo with a LCLC sticker while we were headed back to Palakkad from Thrissur on the Alathur route on 2nd June, i.e. last Sunday.

Friend clicked the snap and I was on my Swift Dzire (had the URL stickers on the number plates and LTD sticker on the left of the rear bumper), overtook the car after a while and waved my hand. Did not notice any response.

Jaipur live fake spotting

VW polo Rj14 cn 8803 with live to drive on yellow background exiting from crystal palm mall, without team bhp written!

100% sure he wouldn't post spotting my car!

Spotted a silver Alto K10 yesterday around 8.10 pm on Mount Poonamallee Road, near DLF U-turn. Had all the Team-BHP stickers on the boot/rear windshield.

BHP'ian?

I spotted you again today, same BTM road while you were waiting for traffic to clear. I was a few feet away, on the other side of the median, moving though.
