aight, the show was awesome. And seen in good company made it even better! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Photos will be up soon. My highlights of the day, though, would have to be the HSV Astra concept, the Mitsubushi 380, Holden efiyi thingie, aston martins and maybach excelero.<p>The big let downs of the day wer that Rolls royce and Porsche weren'tpresent, arguing it was too expensive! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/laugh2.gif" BORDER="0"> ROFL from rolls and porsche.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/laugh2.gif" BORDER="0"><p>The offroad track wasn't very amazing but I rde the new jeep gc the disco 3 and the RRS.

Here are a few guys, enjoy! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I have more pics, but I'm too tired. Full size, unwatermarked pics available <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> Just giving our fellow member, Revilo's site a hand.<p><B>Holden Efiyi Concept:</B><p><I>Overall, a major attraction. The interiour was incredibly stylish, and the exteriour was equally stunning. THe windowline was interesting and very attractive, but perhaps they went a little too far with retro-styling. However, It drew a crowd, and as a concept, it was simply amazing.</I><p><IMG SRC="http://img448.imageshack.us/img448/4352/holdenefiyiconceptinteriour7lf.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img423.imageshack.us/img423/2662/holdenefiyiconceptrear5qe.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Holden S3X:</B><p><I>Nice looking concept, if a little boring. If they want to combat the Territory with this, they have to get the size right. It is too small. However it is in general, stylish and blends nicely with the whole Holden line.</I><p><IMG SRC="http://img422.imageshack.us/img422/1955/holdens3x1ur.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) Astra:</B><p><I>Impressive car, Nice styling, very sportish, sleek and stylish. A Nice additiion to HSV if they decide to sell it.</I><p><IMG SRC="http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/8697/hsvastra6gz.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Lexus Concept:</B><p><I>Another boring LF-A/B/C or whatever it is. Good quality built though.</I><p><IMG SRC="http://img427.imageshack.us/img427/4372/lexusconcept5bs.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Maybach Excelero</B><p><I>It's worth every cent of the 8 million dollars it costs.</I><p><IMG SRC="http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/2618/maybachexcelero3bz.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img372.imageshack.us/img372/555/maybachexcelerorear5iv.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Mitsubishi 380:</B><p><I>Very nice car; Stylish, incredibly comfortable and quality built. Good materials even on base spec. Its a car that has nothing wrong and many things incredibly right. Good Luck with the mouth to mouth respiration to survive Mitsubishi. It looks like you have the formula right.</I><p><IMG SRC="http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/5471/mitsubishi3801ot.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Nissan Concept Car:</B><p><I>Beautiful concept. Agressive looks, yet stylish and clean cut lines. They should make the Tiida look like that.</I><p><IMG SRC="http://img436.imageshack.us/img436/3308/nissanconceptcar2oe.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Toyota Mobility:</B><p><I>Funny little thing. Wouldn't mind one if it were cheap enough. But I guess it wont happen.</I><p><IMG SRC="http://img438.imageshack.us/img438/5517/toyotamobility5fi.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Toyota MTRC Concept:</B><p><I>Just love the looks. Welcome to the future! But nothing really sensational.</I><p><IMG SRC="http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/369/toyotamtrcconcept4ux.jpg" BORDER="0">

What about MPH05? the cars there were great! Lambo Gallardo spyder, Zonda, ford Gt, Weissman, C70, new XK! It was excellent, but i set the alarm off in a 360 Spyder!
