Default Invites available

It will be quite unfortunate if it is a no-show as per Hillram's information (on another thread). They have got the CM to inaugurate the expo, so quite surprised that they are not more organised.

Separately, I have received 5 invites to the Auto ShowSouth - valid for 13, 14, 15 and 16 May between 12 to 8:30pm. I also have an invite to the inaugural ceremony on May 14 at 10:30 pm. Anyone interested, ping me and you can collect them from me at Begumpet.

Cheers,
Spyder

I saw the publicity posters on the divider of the road leading to Hitex today. It seems like it is on.

This site says entry is Rs 50 per person: http://www.fullhyderabad.com/profile...th-2010-review

I was surprised to see an article in TOI today as well. I thought this show was not going to happen. Even in TOI, Toyota Etios is mentioned I would like to take a look at this if time permits over the weekend.

Default Visit to South Auto expo on 15th May 2010

Visited Hitex today. Not much participation unlike last year. But have seen a off-roading track buit and few 4x4 doing those stunts. There is a kart track alos built, in association with JK tyres and few stunt track by Honda & TVS motors. Did not find any much of recently launched luxury cars. Few pics from my side.

Its's a big waste attending the auto show, you'll only find cars which are on the road, except for the etios concept ( both hatch and sedan). I went on the day after media day and trust me, Its the worst auto show I ever attended. The only thing which was good was that ETIOS was launched on that day.

I clicked few pics of ETIOS, and came back home. and yeah, I exchanged the coupon for a cola which hardly had any flavour in it :|

Maruti,Fiat,WV,Audi,BMW,BENZ,Nissan were missing

Hi, Visited Autoshow yesterday. Truly waste of time. I am thinking of giving feedback to CII and SIAM who organised the event. Why should I pay Rs. 99 to see cars that you can always see in any traffic zam of Hyderabad. Only saving grace was Etios concept. Hatchback version is looking really ugly from the backside. Awful design of tail lights. Sedan version looked more like Dzire or Old version of Indigo. Somehow you wouldn't beleive that it is coming from the house of Toyota.

On the other hand for the first time I sat in Skoda Superb rear seat. Felt like sitting in a ultra large sofa made of finest silk cotton. Felt like Wow. Truly worth of more than what it costs. Though I went to the show with my Nikon D50 SLR to shoot pictures, I was totally discouraged and couldn't click even one.

Sorry CII, SIAM. Work more next time.
