Very sad news. Haven't personally met him, but have interacted with him through team-bhp. RIP Santosh.

Oh what sad news. What a loss, especially to those here who knew him personally. To me, he was simply one of the big names of Team-BHP. I have learnt more about him from reading this thread. Deep condolences to you guys who have lost a personal friend.

Just Can NOT believe this. Had met Santhosh during one meet we had near Coimbatore. Not so soon, friend - but you are :(

He had strong views on things, but these were informed views. His posts were some of those that I read regularly. He never hesitated to give it as good as he got it. He was a DBHP-ian for sometime, and then his involvement reduced.

Was really sad to hear about this yesterday. He was the first gang of D-BHPians and I looked up to his posts back then when I was not a moderator.

You could make out he was passionate and a true enthusiasts from his posts and his garage especially in Dubai.

He took a hiatus but came back. His posts were very few but I always used to look out for them cause his views were mostly different and very firm. Never afraid to against the tide.

RIP Steeroid. It is a huge loss to the automotive community as he was well know outside of Team-BHP in automotive circles.

May his soul rest in peace!

Steeroid was indeed a true petrol head with a great zeal for automobiles.

The forum would surely miss him.

This news today and just a few days ago, he was asking me if i would sell him my Hexa since i was venting on the rumour of Hexa discontinuation.
Never got to meet him in person but looked forward to his posts and PoVs.

May you find peace in the golden fields of Elysium my friend; may the family find strength and peace in their hearts.
