i went to the auto show last night VIP night and i was not impressed or wowed at all, with the exception to my favourite booth BMW. they have on display the M3's Coupe and Saloon, very sexy cars, i specially like the saloon it gets the same front end as the Coupe. the X6 was also their, it looked pretty nice. they also have the 1 series in 135i, cab and 128. the 135 looks better in person then pictures... i really like the 135 and M3 displayed in White. I've noticed for a lot of manufacturers in NA the white is the colour of choice for lunch vehicles, glad the silver era is gone.

there is a terrible green looking Viper at the show, i don't know what they were thinking, there is also the ZR1 featured, cool looking corvette.

the other cars i liked are the Lancer evo and the STi , prefer the STi over lancer cause of the flared fenders. also Audi had some nice cars on display which i got a chance to sit in such as R8, V8 version @ $176000, i was looking for the Diesel and the RS4 and at A5/S5.

other then that nothing to spectacular, they didn't even have the Porsche GT3 or GT2 on display, when asked they told its all sold out.

The Viper is being sacked at the end of the year, that ugly green one was probably a limited edition final run.

R8, V8 version @ $176000, ARE YOU SERIOUS? 176.000 for a freaking R8? i thought it was lower 100s! Thats waaaaay too much for underpowered car like that, that is my opinion tho.

i know i thought they go for 120000 but that's ridiculous, its not even the V12 version or Diesel, they probably be over 200G's

Was the R8 stickered at 176K MSRP or was that their "asking price" for that specific unit? I know Pfaff had one for sale a short while ago at 169K, I figured that was marked up.

LOL! You spot those even in our shithole called Brampton. If they're totting around out here, then I'm sure the GTA has loads :P

The R8 there was listed @ 150k MSRP me thinks....I was there yesterday. But that may be the base price...

BTW, sat in the white 135i, I love it!!!!

benz test drive course.

They bring you near ontario place and they made a track there (full of snow)

basically you can test how their (DSC) works on the snow.

Pretty fun out there you can test drive as many as you want.

There are like 7 cars to test drive. (3 kinds B, C class, smart)

230 RWD
230 + 4matic
B class + 4 matic (not sure)
Smart (I didn't know smart is a RWD car)

I was there today, loved the R8 *love*

I was disappointed with the 1-series though, didn't quite look as good as in the pictures and the back seat is was too small for adults. The interior hasn't been improved over the e46, the 3 is the better bet for a bit more $ IMO

what!?
the 128i's blue was gorgeous.
the 135i's red interior ... i was about to make it white!
loved everything about it. looks much better in person.

but being a fan of the bim bims i'd have to say the BEST automobile there was the RS4. *mw*

Ugh, red interior is so tacky! It looked like something out of the 80's

The RS4 was sweet, I also liked the Lotus Elise but how the fck do you get in those things?

Mazda Furai was the best designed car there for me, out of all the concepts this car struck me as being the most original and it just looks bad ass.

Went there on friday night, was very empty with hardly any people there...

R8, I managed to fit in it, comfortably (about an additonal 1" of headroom). To be honest, I was not very impressed with the interior. Everything felt cheap, not what I would expect from a $150+ car.

Toyota FJ, probably my next DD. Loved that car, very roomy, comfortable, good visibility and nice all around, practical vehicle

Subaru STI WRX. All around i was actually quite impressed with the car, good ergonomics and pleanty of headroom (over 2 inches). Keep in mind I'm 6'7 so finding cars I can fit into is very rare.

Mitsu Evo. I felt more comfortable in the Subaru, even though the Evo is supposed to be the better of the 2 cars, I was not able to sit as comfortably as in the WRX.

Not impressed with the Benz's at all (except the McLaren)

Loved the new M3 coupe, very comfortable, lots of room, overall I was very impressed with the quality of the BMWs, compared to the other makes. The doors felt extremely solid, interior is starting to be really nice, you just have a very nice complete package with the Beemers.
