Me and Rob went to the motor show today, I have been to everyone more or less since I was a kid (only live 10 mins form NEC) and this was the worst on yet
Very expensive £8.50 to park £16.00 to get in!! I managed to get in for fiver though @ Robs facre though!!!
We managed to sit in all the cars we both would like as a next car other than the TVR's. These are our thoughts:
Golf mk5: Very dissapointed indeed, I personally love the exterior but the interior was awfull and cheap, to the point of I prefer our mk4 Golf.
Astra mk5: Got to say although I am biased I guess I loved it. Very soild, much more so than the mk4 (which is still good) but right up there with VW and audi IMHO. I thought the astra although not light years ahead of the mk4 was a great evolution and I am really looking forward to the 3 door VXR now!
New Tigra: Stunning from the outside and a bit special....got in and my words were "just a corsa" now I know its a corsa with a different shell, BUT I think vx have missed a trick with this car, needs to be a lot more special inside, even if it is just a makeover on the corsa dash.
Honda S2000: This car me and Rob have both liked for ages.....both of us felt like giants it though Nice interior as well. It was just to cramped and the seats just didnt go back far enough.
Crossfire: Rob was a big lover of this car untill today...me a hater I knew what it would be like, and it was! American company tries euorpean..and lands on its arse! Very tacky interior, very cheap and certainly not worth the money!
Nissan 350Z: Awsome car but again interior was a little bit of a let down, very badly designed. Seemed to me it was designed as a drivers car but then they realised it had no gadgets or storage so they wacked it were it fell. Shame really.
VW Tourag: Cool car! Loved it, it also has the most complex cupholder in the world, still every gadget had a purpose and was solid. Liked that a lot.
Honda NSX Type R: Now we are talking!! Both of us fit in it well, loads of leg room, very driver focused and gerally very nice....**drooool**
Skoda Fabia VRS: Just for oss really, it was built better than the golf
Loads of others as well, but they were the main ones. We looked around the show in 3 hours, no trade stands really so genrally a bit crap, at least it only cost me £5
