I took these pics a while ago in the annual (and only) motor show that we get here... This year was the best in the past 4 or 5 I attended, and I had a camera with me, thought I'd share the pics, what do you think of them? They're all completely untouched/unedited.

BMW-Williams F-1 Car:

But this exhaust pipe is far too big for my taste

Glad you enjoyed them, yeah got higher res. of those pics that are 1600x1200 currently, used a Canon G5 to shoot those, the batch in the last section were taken with a crappy 3MP Kodak so u'll notice the colors are not as good as the first ones and I don't have them in higher res. :)

Me? well as a car to have, I loved the elise, it was my first time to get in a car like that and I was simply stunned.... I love its efficiency and handling (know those from reviews), it looks really really awesome in the flesh, and I tried the gear changes with the car standing still, nothing like I've ever driven they had amazingly precise short throws and u'd hear a click when the gear is engaged, it just blew me away.....
Can't imagine how it'd be driving one.

The carrera 4s cabriolet was also wonderful, but I'd prefer a turbo probably

But as a sight The F1 car was the most stunning, also was my first time to see an F1 car in the flesh.

ya I know, I love the sl in the flesh and thought I'd take a lot more pics of it, but somehow I couldn't take many good shots, perhaps because it was very crowded and not a lot of space around to maneouver for a good pic
Here are a couple more that I didn't think were good enough, but I'll let u be the judge of that :)

I wish they offered that SL350 here. That is one of the major problems with north american "image is everything" market, so the germans keep their cars high up and don't offer the smaller engines.

they even have mercedes S280's in malaysia and E200's... lol

BTW... I don't think the Subaru impreza is the 1.6N/A one... unless they changed the bodykit because only Turbo impreza's have the scoop :wink:
