Spot on Sir.

I buy my cars used. So I am not really into keeping them looking shiny. On any given day, my cars have the scars to show for their well lived life. But mechanicals?! Those are an entirely different conversation. I will take on any shiny car and beat them with regards the quality of the mechanicals in my car. My mechanic always says that the sounds that I complain about are those that 90% of people donít even hear. Those sounds are apparently in a frequency that does not fall into the hearing range of most drivers.

Cheers

Very well said @vsathyap!!
The same is true for many of us, I am sure!
One more habit/point that I would like to add is "Going for a long drive more often without much push"!

What a thread!! I'm still smiling. While I have been a (sort of) freak for quite a while now, after joining TBHP it has just gone straight north:-)... I'm now more particular about the products I use - whether tyres or shampoos, and the list goes on & on...

Get more respect now from people around - the membership elevated me in their eyes automatically! I would be lying if I say that I haven't boasted at times about it or felt a bit of pride & ego. But who cares.

On another note, during the strict lockdown period, when most other cars in the complex were lying around with sheets of dust on them, mine did attract a lot of eyeballs (some jealous ones included) when I used to intentionally drive around inside the complex in the garb of keeping the battery working fine... would be lying again if I say I didn't have a smirk on my face at times

Bingo, very similar here - just that in my case the courier guy had left by then
And TBHP stickers are the first time any of my cars have ever had a sticker - and now I have 3 of them! A couple of my other enthusiast friends (and fellow BHPians) have been quick to notice:-)

All this is good... having a sense of pride with the stickers in the car..
But, why do we have such a small list of TBHP Merchandise? Why is this limited to only stickers, keychains, t-shirt and hoodies??

Why don't we have other items, like, Coffee Mugs that fits into cup-holders, USB Chargers, floor mats etc etc..

There could be tons of things that we all would love to get with T-BHP logo in it.
Yes, that has to be of good (or superior) quality, durable etc. - which we all understand.

Please give it a serious thought.. I strongly feel, T-BHP as a brand is strong enough to bring about a change in the mindshare of driving-friendly mass!!

Sorry for being late since I was busy with professional life.
The name is "Wash & Wander". They operate in Powai/Chandivali and Worli area. I could not find any website. You can contact at washnwander@gmail.com or at 7304258978.
P.S. I am not related to them. I just use their service.
