Thanks Amit. Hardly visit this thread nowadays, cus most of the spottings go un-acknowledged.

Did you flash? I was busy on a call (with hands free! Lest, I get flamed for this ), hence probably didnt recognize the car behind me.

Yes, that junction has become a pain. Ironically, when the traffic lights are off, the traffic is much better!

Sorry for going slightly O.T in this thread, but I have a question for IronH4wk. How do you manage to spot atleast 1 stickered car every day?! And that too some very good quality snaps (no blurring, no panning) What are the tools of trade, let me know!

I tried everything, mobile, compact point & shoot, superzoom, DSLR; but everytime, I take out the instrument, the car has already gone

Now coming back to the topic, spotted a maroon Linea in Good Luck chowk, opposite Popular book house. It had a 'got Bhp?' sticker. Who is this?

a good friend and a fellow BHPian once told me that if you're good at something, never do it for free

BUT, if you've the time and the energy to search for it, i had posted a crash course in spotting couple of hundred pages back, which might be helpful.

EDIT: oh what the heck - its on page 619; post 9285

EDIT2: i use a Canon 400D with a 55-250mm IS. with a DSLR, the trick is to not to get trigger happy; wait for the right moment and then click.

I think he has employed some guys who go around town and click snaps of cars posting the stickers. Otherwise how is it possible for a single person to have so many sightings.

His handle should read "IronH4wk - Distinguished Spotter"

Not an issue mate. I did flash twice. Acnowledgement for spottings is needed from people we don't know. We bump into each other in every second BHP Meet in Pune.

So is this the elusive HP72 5050? I have seen it at least half-a-dozen times in Indirapuram including this very evening.

Hey IS
Good to see an acknowledgement after almost a year!
I was driving past Chinchwad, rushing for a meeting.
Trailed you from Mumbai by-pass till Aditya Birla Hospital.
See you around..

p.s. - I stay in Kothrud.

Well, If the car owner is reading this post, I was following you on a biscut coloured RE 500 with 'Enduro Himalaya' stickers all around. I overtook u at the Ulsoor roundturner
Today I spotted the same car again, and I overtook him just before Lingrajpuram flyover

Looks like you are a regular on the particular route. But I am unsure whether to wave out to you since you may not be a BHPian considering that you have not acknowledged the previous spotting till now.
I spot this Punto almost once a week. We are always on the same route but in opposite directions.

Today I was waiting at a turn when you approached me. We even had eye contact but I dint want to stop you there in the midst of a turn & create a jam.

Buddy, if you are reading this, I was in a white Punto with black roof & alloys with LTD sticker on rear bumper @ lake homes.
