Yes, planning to be there tomorrow first half or sunday first half.

Is there any meet planned at the venue?
Been there this morning first thing. As usual, delayed opening, they let in at 11 am.
Time spent inside = 3 minutes, 45 seconds.
Seen new = Nothing.
Except 2010 Outlander, parked so cramped right in the front, every other vehicle is all you see on the road.
One Cadi's Escalade standing outside, totally alienated, out of place.
Me totally dis-illusioned.

My Adivse / Suggestion / warning / whatever you want to call it -
Pogaathey... Pogaathey...Absolute waste of time.

@rajataurus: i went there today morning as well :(

total waste of time. expo had car sales display and they had stalls of haute car zone, garware, garmin, zig wheels, bosch etc. Display of cars made by college students and TSM second car sales display.

Well, i wanted to warn you all not to go but there was a maintenance message at t-bhp and unable to post.

Its a disaster to call it 'auto expo'.

They even had the nerve to park a 88K run battered Palio in the TSM stall.

Unless you are getting chauffeured in a Rolls or so or someone's giving a M3 to drive down, don't even go there! It was a Times of India created drama, not worth it at all!

@Ikoneer

I had been to the AUTO EXPO on Sunday by accident. Wanted to get some seat covers from GP road and was passing by.

Parking space was good but was not managed that well towards the evening.

Utter madness, i had taken my wife along and she wanted some samosa, even that was not good.

Waste of time, waste of time, waste of time

Regards

Kaushik Krishnan
