Went on Fri... If you like to see cars that you will not be able to buy
unless you win the lotteries several times you will love this show-
Ferraris, Maseratis and Bentley (?!), not to mention all Benz and BMW
But the sight of the cool blue M3 convertible was worth the entry fee
Peugeot had the 206SW on show, as well as 3 307s, 2 206cc , 607 and
406coupe. Also have a WRC 206 there.
The new WRX didn't make it, presumably because Subaru Aus still have
of the goggle-eyed one in stock. All the sales people just hanged around
WRXs on display and looking for suckers...

I went to the Car Show on Monday afternoon too. It was quite
interesting and their seemed to be a lot more cars there than in
previous years. The only idiotic stands where the cars were locked
happened to be Nissan and Toyota. Plenty of more much more expensive
brands had their doors thrown open for all to see and try. At this
point I have to ask what is the point of displaying at a Motor Show
and not letting people have a closer look at the cars?
The highlight for me was the Cooper S, and I was also intrigued by
the Ford Focus ST170 (though the design is a bit lost on me) and the
Daihatsu Copen - which is kind of a smaller version of the Audi TT.
The Peugeot stand wasn't that impressive (they should at least have
had a GTi there!) - though I did note that the 206SW had GTi badges
on the front guards in the standard position.
