Thanks for reminding. Was looking forward to this one but had lost from calendar. Hope it really turns out to be a great show unlike the disappointments in earlier ones (not this one last year).

Remember visiting the place last time. Too many Cars and quite a hefty charge for entrance, but the experience was not that good at all.

will visit again to see if there`s improvement if at all this year !

Have been visiting this show for many years now, its got more & more disappointing over the years! If i recollect last years standout cars were the SLS & LP 560-4.
Hope to see Audi & Porsche at the show also and more supercar participation in the Supercar Gallery. Hope they improve the lighting also!

I guess there will also be Times Mumbai Motor show happening sometime later this year.

Yep, that Gurkha seems like it means business. What is that tent like structure on the top and the ladder at the back? Wonder what they are using it for.

OT: Force + Gurkha + OM611 + 4WD + Creature Comforts (AC/PS/Decent Seats & Interiors) = About to launch since 2007

Well, that depends. Yes, last year's APS was absolutely useless. But, I feel that this year's was a little better. if you have a couple hours to spare, its worth a visit definitely.
But again, don't expect too much.

Well I am planning to go tomorrow with a couple of my friends and I would be grateful if you can share information regarding these points:
1. What is the entry fee(s) or is it free? (cause I am going for the first time)

2. Your experience over there (Suzuki Autocross as well as the Exhibition) over a scale of 5.

But can you guide me how to reach the venue (MMRDA grounds) from Bandra station?

Would be grateful if you can shed some information on this. Thanks.

To answer your queries,

1. The entry fee is Rs. 100 for visitors.

2. Suzuki Autocross- 0.5/5
Exhibition- 3/5

3. From bandra station, you can take a cab or a rikshaw. Its around 15 minutes from the station as per my knowledge and once you reach Bandra Kurla Complex, there are several signs on the road which will guide you to the APS. Just ask the driver to take you to MMRDA grounds in Bandra Kurla Complex.


Hope this helps.
