My two cents ~
Once planned and finalized in your WA group, do post the meet details on this thread with some amount of lead time so that folks who might want to join do not miss out.

Yes! Definitely some time in advance would be helping in having a better plan and strength to make the trip joyful.

Thanks a lot sir. I was actually searching for the person who moved my post to the apt location.

1-Jul - Hyd T'Bhp Meet

This meet has a twist. We were discussing about hard-wiring couple of dashcams in the group. Finally we zeroed down on my Polo. And decided to drive 90+ kms away from the city's hustle bustle to do the DIY. Why? Because we are T-Bhpians .

Here's a brief itinerary of the DIY Meet :

Where : Food Pyramid, Jadcherla
When : 1st July, Sunday.
Meeting point and time of meeting : RGIA ORR Point @ 6:30 AM IST.

Agenda : Breakfast, followed by DIY, followed by lunch and dinner (if needed )


Confirmed entries :

1) a4anurag
2) Varun_HexaGuy
3) ngauravmalhotra
4) manas_270
5) shifu

Tentative :

1) coolmind


Please keep your confirmations pouring in. This is going to be a unique meet!

Hey Avi,

Since time was a constraint for some in the group, the meet location has been changed from Food Pyramid to a Restaurant that is 15-20 minutes away from Ramoji Film City.

The Last Sunday Breakfast cum DIY meet was a success. A lot of BHPians confirmed their presence a day before the meet.

Where : Organic Aaharam Restaurant, near Ramoji Film City.
When : 1st July 2018, Sunday Morning.
What was the meet about? : A typical Sunday Morning Breakfast meet with an intention of attempting a couple of DIYs with an experienced person on it. The DIYs were to hardwire a dashcam (on Shubham's Polo) and to replace the Central AC vents on Abhinav's Bimmer.

Members Appeared :
  • ngauravmalhotra a.k.a Gaurav - VW Polo GT TSI
  • shifu a.k.a Shubham +1 (his dad) - VW Polo (The car which was meant to be operated).
  • manas_270 a.k.a Giri +1 (Shotgun) - Fiat Punto 90hp
  • a4anurag a.k.a Anurag +1 (Shotgun) - Hyundai Creta
  • highwayhooper a.k.a Dinesh - Hyundai Xcent
  • sandx a.k.a Chandan - Maruti Alto
  • abhiram0712 a.k.a Abhinav - BMW F10 525d (The car of the day!)
  • jetti a.k.a Sai Kiran (shotgun to Giri) - Fiat Punto 90hp
  • Varun_HexaGuy a.k.a Varun (yours truly; shotgun to Anurag) - Hyundai Creta

What was the exact plan? : A day prior to the meet, it was decided that the gang from Secunderabad (me, Dinesh and Anurag) would meet the guys coming from the other part of the city (the rest of the gang) near Ramoji Film City. So, it was decided that both the guys would start at 6:30 sharp from both of their meeting points. As we guys (me and Anurag esp.) didn't want to arrive late and as a result we started a bit too early. Anurag was near my place at 5:45 post which we proceeded towards the meet point from where Dinesh would join us. Dinesh, too, had arrived on time. After we met, we realised that we were running well ahead of time. We had a brief chat for 15-odd minutes post which we got on a move. We were cruising at an average speed of 90-100 kmph on the ORR. We reached the meeting point where the rest of the folks would join us on the said time. Waited for 10-odd minutes post which we got to know that guys started a bit late than the decided time (We hyderabadi's follow HST!). After a bit of waiting Abhinav with his Bimmer pulled over to the point where we had stopped. After waiting for another 10-more minutes, the rest of the team appeared. All of us exchanged pleasantries post which I hopped into the passenger seat of the Bimmer (advantages of not owning any car!). We all were driving in a convoy with one ahead of the other. The Bimmer was probably at the last of the convoy for most of the time. After driving for 18-odd kilometres from the meeting point, we arrived at the restaurant and everyone were hungry. Without a further ado, parked as many cars as possible under the shade (finding a covered parking on a sunday morning is a task here!) and we had sumptuous breakfast and everyone had a sip of tea post which all the men got into work.

We soon got to work. Anurag had removed the cover over the fuse box to access the fuse slots to check for an empty fuse slot which could power the dashcam. Soon, we found the required slot for the job and started the job. There were a couple of hurdles en-route as the Driver-Side A-Pillar trim wouldn't open despite using the right trim opener. Even if it did, we couldn't open the whole trim and worked with the trim half open. Next up was the grounding point and finding one in the polo was a task in itself. Gaurav and I were searching on various forums on the same and Gaurav found a point to ground the cable. Post which all of the stuff was done right and the end result was as expected.

On the other hand, Abhinav was sort of working alone on his Bimmer for most of the time and we people would join him occasionally. Even this DIY went as expected. He removed the trim with the help of a trim opener and removed the old AC Vent by unscrewing the AC Vent with the trim and he fixed the new part to it and fit the trim back in place. Enough of talking here are some pics which we all have managed to capture :

The centre of attraction. It managed to grab a lot of eyes while she was parked. More so, when Abhiram himself was working on the car.
