Re: no alfa stand at the motor show

Yup I went yesterday. Quite enjoyed it, plenty to look at. The Ford stand was probably the best. I went on the indoor karting though, deffinitely the most fun I've had in ages (whooped everyone else on track, even lapped my mate )!

Re: no alfa stand at the motor show

Audi was there -

Just displayed their new A6.

But the What Car stand had the new Alfa GT so wasn't a completely wasted journey!

Re: no alfa stand at the motor show

Very disappointed that Alfa was not at the show....

Overall, I really enjoyed the show. I thought the Live Action Arena was fun, but the queues for most of the driving experiences were a bit long (what a surprise!).

I did think it was a bit pricey, though. Hopefully, if the format was successful, the price might drop in the next few years.

(Loved the Fiat Trepiuno concept car !!! )

Re: no alfa stand at the motor show

Top Gear said that a stand costs £5million. If so, p'haps that's got something to do with it.

Re: no alfa stand at the motor show

The motor show was good. The mini adventure was quite cool.
I was very disappointed that alfa werent there.

I dont think that the problem is that it costs of £5 mill to put on the show, I think that the biggist problem is the perception by some that if you are outside of London ( or the M25 area) there is no point.

Top Gear are trying to get 100 people that were going to order BMW X5 to buy some this else. They worked out that that would cost BMW £5mill.
