I went yestarday. it was a lot of fun, always is. I snapped bunch of pics of the sx4 rally car. very cool car as well as the concept X downstairs in the mitsu booth. that was pretty sick too. too bad we didnt get the evo X at that show to see the closer version to what we will be getting. the concept X was pretty cool though. My advice, steer clear of the nissan 350Z...i wanted to have a seat in one just to see what it was like inside, i got near teh car and it took me like 10 mins to fight my way out of the crowed without even sitting in the damn thing, and that was on a thursday afternoon! lol. have fun though pat.

i think also worth a mention is jeeps valiant effort to bring back the oh so hideous camanche. It wasnt pretty, but it is basically the essence of the old truck brought to this day and age. I got to sit in a bunch of the audis...and i have to say, i really like the a3, but the s6 or whatever, the yellow one...the seats were way too hard...but not enough bolstering to make a seat that hard justified...also, im a traditional guy, i like three pedals and 5 (or 6) gears in my right hand...dont care for the paddle shift that all the cars are going too. its sort of disapointing that we are getting so lazy and unskilled we expect our cars to work our clutch for us. I know that VWs have the excuse that there are two clutches, so that pretty much has to be computer controlled...but not too many other cars have that excuse. Did anyone else go to the show, or was it just pat and i?

Those come on the Fit Sport if you get it with an auto. A normal 5-speed with a clutch is still available.
