It has been almost one month on the forum, and I thought of writing an introduction to let everyone know more about me. So, let's talk about ice_wise
, introduction is to tell everyone about yourself right? ice_wise :
At the first glance, the username suggests that this guy is an ICE (for the newbies : ICE = In Car Entertainment and NOT the frozen state of water) enthusiast and is a wise person! Well, the first part is true but the second part of my wisdom isn't totally correct. I know everything about something and then I don't know anything about something!
I was fiddling for a good username in my mind when all of a sudden, I think of this word ("WISE") which goes really well with my area of interest ("ICE"). I had been browsing TAI
since quite some time and on 5 Nov, took the plunge to be a part with many thoughts in my mind : Will I be able to concentrate on my syllabus anymore? Will I be able to spend time out of TAI
after becoming a member? Will I be of any help or treated as 'just another member'? I had given my semester exams at that time and had lots of time to spare, and after using most of the spare time, still I had some to spare and ended up spending time on TAI
to fuel my automotive passion. All other thoughts took a backseat and I registered for this community with great enthusiasm.
Exactly 396 posts (1 award
) and 29 days later, I am here to share my thoughts about TAI
. A nirvana for all automotive enthusiasts, be it from the travel, ICE, technical or modification section. I interacted with many awesome people (TSIVipul, Akash1886, Sarath01, Ameyam, LAOW, bhvm, Saroya, manish12345 and a lot more!) on the forum who accepted me with lot of respect and support. TAI
, as a forum, is very helpful for newbie buyers as well as experts from the automotive background. It provides lots of information on each and every happening in the Automotive Scene. You search for a topic and TAI
will already have a related thread with loads of information. Kudos to the core team for creating such a great community for the enthusiasts. One does not realise when he/she (do we have "shes" also?) has become an addict. I browse through the forums almost every couple of hours now and this has become a cause of concern for worried family members! Even when some suspecting friend goes through my browsing history, all he/she can find is loads of TAI
I am basically from Meerut and moved to Gurgaon this year, to stay with my elder brother while completing my undergraduate studies as Delhi NCR region offered better career opportunities. I am a big fan of all things ICE. I had a lot of interest in music (not singing but in equipments) and this passion grew day by day. Started by helping friends with basic queries on ICE and have gained respectable knowledge as of now (still to explore the Active setup territory but progress in ON). I also became famous in my college for these ICE experiments! If some TAIger is from SCMS, ask about "Lakshit BBA Wale's Car"
and someone from 2nd year will definitely direct you towards my Swift. I got this used car deliberately as I knew that I would tear this up for ICE and a new car didn't make much sense (warranty this, warranty that, grr..). I have a soft corner for stray animals since my childhood days and always have been involved in one way or the other to protect (or at least, not disturb) these innocent animals. I have taken part and active stand in these issues and remember beating up a school bus driver once when he killed a small puppy because of his senseless driving.
About my cars, I started driving when I was 15 or so, but those drives were nothing but parking and errands (accompanied with elders) around town. I started driving officially since Aug this year when I got my own car. We have owned a Maruti 800, Alto and WagonR in the past and have a Dzire VDi, Swift Vxi and Etios GD currently. We also had an Eterno and a Pulsar but sold them off when my brother moved to Noida for his studies (and then to Gurgaon). We are planning for another car now, and being a Maruti fan, I am doing all possible efforts from my side to bring the Baleno in the garage. This time I am confident that I will not make any wrong choice (not that I have made any) as TAI
members are with me throughout this purchase.
Would love to hear about what you guys think about me and looking forward to share and gain knowledge with every passing day! And I hope this was an enjoyable read.
