Looking forward...

Hello October

Hello October! January! March!*

The Best CAR Blog Ever completed 4 awesome years in October 2016. And I have to admit, it has been a wonderful journey so far for me. I have even ventured successfully on to writing more about other topics than Cars – something that I had not thought of doing before. Here’s my other blog if you’re curious.

A lot happened in 2016

At the starting of that year I made promises I couldn’t fulfill and failed at – writing more often,  posting more often on my social channels, Auto Expo 2016 coverage, etc. The only reason for this is my old way of managing my time.

I’ve definitely written thousands of to-do lists on several pages/notes and tried out tens of different apps! But none of them have led me to deliver what I wanted to. Most of my time went in managing my studies, college project and then my startup related work.

Now everything has ended – and new things have begun. I completed my studies in June 2016 & then went on to do an internship for two months with a startup. Then I got a full-time job as a Front End Developer at the same place for multiple good reasons. The biggest being the awesome people I had to work with.

I also bought a monkey bike (Honda Navi) in June and started a group of Honda Navi Owners from Mumbai to go on rides with them! 😁 Fun facts aside I’ve also been gaining some extra weight that I shouldn’t.

A lot has happened in 2017

I attended the Autocar Performance Show 2017 in January; I also covered the launch and experience events for the Tata Hexa – on Instagram** at least. I couldn’t get time to write about them. They are in my drafts. I’ll get them out of the drafts just like this post* soon!

There was also a Volkswagen GTI Experience event that I went to and I also attended the Vintage Car Fiesta 2017 organized by the Vintage & Classic Cars Club of India.

Welcome to March everyone!

Two months of 2017 already flew away, 10 more to go! I hope to make the most of them! I read an article that said

“Scheduling is more effective than just making a to-do list”

It might be the way to go with my blogs and all other activities. Less Talking More Doing!!

* Yeah this post was lying around as a draft since October 2016! I tried to finish it and publish it in January also. But it’s finally here!
** Are you following me on Instagram? If not, then please do! I am quite active there. @thebestcarblogever !!

Volkswagen GTI (2017) Experience in Mumbai

Volkswagen GTI 2017 Experience in Mumbai

GTI – Grand Turismo Injection – it is an identity. An identity for Wolfsburg born motoring legend. The Volkswagen GTI stands for a sporting character, a powerful engine and maximum performance. Every car-maker has a performance wing, and this is Volkwagen’s performance baby finally making it to India. The Volkwagen GTI is here for the enthusiasts. It looks like another hatchback to those who are unaware of how GTI bagde changes the numbers for this particular car. This two-door ‘Creature of the Night’ GTI comes with a 1.8L TSI, 4-cylinder in-line engine, 1798cc of displacement generating 192PS of power and 250Nm of torque!

Check out the video below for a look at the interior of this crazy hot hatch!

 

Please like the video, leave your comments and do subscribe. This can help me know that I should make more videos related to cars! (Maybe motovlogging/ autovlogging in the future!) Irrespective of that, there is another video due – it covers the Volkswagen GTI doing some things you could only imagine! This is what is was meant to do – what else would you do with a hatch that can go 233kmph!! 😛 😀 Hahahaha! Check out more details about the Volkswagen GTI here: http://www.volkswagen.co.in/en/models/volkswagen-gti/gallery.html

A big thanks to Shaman Group – Volkswagen Downtown Mumbai for organizing this amazing track & my brother Nirav M Minawaala (Automotive Lifestyles) for the invite and company at this thrilling afternoon!!
