Saw the title and thought it was about some Yatra organized by the AP congress to counter the VW issue....sort of Vishist Vaahan Yatra.

vahan yatra is a total waste of time and energy. all you get to see are totally crap modded cars (never seen worse mods in my life) and the regular showroom cars (maruti,hyundai etc.)!! i think chameleon has he biggest and worst stand every year. they actually think they're cool...i guess they dont know what folks in bangalore think of 'em !! hahaha

they usually have one attraction planned to lure the crowds...last year they had a 7 series BMW i think. i just caught a glimpse of it thru the crowds...it was silver i think. all the stinking sweating janta from munireddypalya, kalasipalyam and shivajinagar will be in vahan yarta for 10 days to kill time rather than go to fun world or russel market. yuk yuk yuk !

well, if the babes are reallly worth the trip, then i could come down there if can make a group with other team-bhpians and go there hahaha!

Is it that bad? i knew it wouldnt be as good as the Auto Expo, but thought would be good in small way.

Also, how is the "Performance Auto Show" that happens in Bombay or somewhere in India.? is that one good?

I was there last year and it was a waste of time primarily because most of manufacturers don't show up unlike auto expo. Its the usual accessory shop folks peddling their wares.

Paying Rs.49 for a (good) cup of coffee is not a good proposition at all.
