How much is the entry fee this year ? Won't be the same minus the JBL shows & stalls.

There's 75% of the fun gone.

Cheers

In hindsight, I will call it the Skoda stall the "lemonade stall"

being very honest it was disappointing. it keeps getting smaller and smaller. there was no jbl stall which meant no fun. overall much worse than i expected. of course if its your first time youll love it. i recommend you go and have a look but if anyone is hoping to spend more than an hour there, its not possible.

there was the laura vrs on display in lhd. it had the 2.0tfsi engine with a claimed 0-100 of 7.3 seconds.

Just returned from Mumbais very own Auto expo ( or showroom I should say 11). You could see the exit gate a stone throws way from the entry gate, so as soon as i entered, i thought 80Rs down the drain DIkra!. Sorry bhpians i was not carrying a camera since my friend and I went there unplanned, but I am sure many bhpians would be posting pics.

The first beauty to catch my eye was the Chevy Cruze in the gorgeous red colour. then there were the mercs we see on the road everyday. i proceeded and tok a feel of the Fiat 500 and man she looked hot!. Nicely tucked away was the gorgeous Lamborghini on display. Got a chance to hear the lambo's grunt for a short while. The JCB diesel looked quite nice and its really loooo oooo oong.

Then there were the new Landcruiser, Fortuner & Camry on the toyota stall and the land rover and Jaguar on one stall. I was really impressed by the Interiors of the Land Rover. "Plush and Classy" thats how I would sum it up. Even the Landcruisers interiors looked plain jane when compared to the Land Rover. the Apollo stall was buzzing with activity, though i liked the alloy designs much more than the tyres tread designs. Forgot to mentioned the scorpio and badly done up xylo.

On the outside there was the Mahindra great escape where the 4x4 scorpio just failed time and again to climb the steep incline.

Overall had a good time, though it could have been much better.

Some shows take a couple of days to get into gear. I'm hoping for much better on Sunday.
