Haha the fish was there!

You say the lights on the Fiat were too big for the actual car. What about that 907 :shock:

Jag DB9 is also cool. Ferrari FXX is fuckin craZy :bangin: :thumbsup:

No mercs :(
 
Uh... why dont you put this onto the ther Auto Salon thread you told me to make? http://forum.finalgear.com/viewtopic.php?t=9509

Still, I'm pissed I missed the Toyota F1, and the Renault Cup... I have to go on Friday again and get my friend to get me a pass onto the Ferrari and Maserati stands to get even btter photos! :lol:
 
^caus i didn't see it :|

and there were mercs, but it was so crowed it was impossible to make any pics. and there wasn't much to seen anyways

I sat in the Mercs, actually all of them that were open... Do you want pics of the Mercs? I can post if you want...
DAMN RIGHT I DO :D
 
the merc S class had better seats then the BMW 7 ;)

But I liked the Z4 really very much. I had one of the best driving positions of all those roadsters

By the way, did any of you look closely at those formula 1 cars? I had the idea those weren't the real cars? It looked more like the carbon fiber parts where carbon fiber stickers on metal parts, or am I completely wrong?
 
I'm very sure the McLaren MP4-20 was empty inside. All the exterior parts were there and the carbon bits but I took a look at the bottom of the car and the undertray isn't what it should be. The antennas for the wireless transmissions are also all there and the steering wheel and the chair for Mr Montoya's BIG BUTT but I'm guessing the steering wheel is also fake and there isn't any electronics inside.

I did get cut by the stupid rear diffuser of the MP4-20 though... The carbon fibre was tough and sharp!! That's why I still like my Ferraris hehehehe :lol:

didn't go sit in it :(

but i was highly surprised by the mx-5. you sat down and just wanted to throw the rear end out. the 350z was ok, but i was highly dissapointed with the rx8. i just wanted to get out, wasn't any racing feel at all. rear seat were comfy though
 
once is enough, don't feel like paying 12? again for things i've already seen (and we spent more than 6 hours there, i don't think there are many things i haven't seen)
