Smile Paris Motor Show Visit

Arrived at the motor show late on Saturday evening, unfortunately got only the last two hours to run around. So i was on a mission to choose my priorities due to the time constraint, my obvious choice- The Germans

I'll let the pictures do the talking, sorry for some of the bad quality, i was in a great rush to capture and see as much as i could.

Wow! Good work choosing the best ones to drool over

Is that the Fabia 1.9? Did you manage to see the Laura vRS ?

Nope did not see the Laura vRS, was trying not to spend too much time at the Skoda stall, there were better cars to drool over.

The new Laura looks horrible from the front, the headlights are way too gawdy. Was mighty impressed with the Superb and Tiguan.
Although the Tiguan is a small SUV, probably around the size of the CRV or Captiva, its faaaaaar more comfy than any SUV we have on sale here. The reason being the high seats, which provide excellent under-thigh support.

The new 7 series is a stunner, especially from the rear. Although the interiors don't seem as luxurious as the S, maybe because they had the short wheel base version on display.

Do post a pic of the Laura if you have one.

The Estoqure looks lovely with the Reventon like tail lights

But did ayone actually like the design of the new E class ( i think Sahil's got a pic of a 2 door estate(?))? i personally think it looks too concept-ish

Wait, is that a preview of a possible Lambo super-salon?! Looks brutish, like a junior batmobile!
