Re: 2006 Melbourne Motor Show Feb 9-19
Sorry to say this Jalal, but the motor show really wasn't as good as everyone expected it to be this year.
Apart from a couple of concepts, there really weren't many new and interesting things compared to last year.
Although i am a nissan fan, i have to admit that i really wasn't that excited about the nissan stand this year. It had the same annoying salesman on speaker touting the Z roadsters retracting roof, they've renamed the Pulsar, Tiida (pronouced teedar, as corrected by the salesman). Apart from this, and the Nismo 350Z concept, and the new X-Trail ST-S which the salesman didn't even know about, there wasn't that much else there. I didn't even know about the new Navara until i saw link above. Which i saw today. I went to the show last thursday/saturday
There was an interesting looking Dodge Calibre. And the Territory seemed to have been revised somewhat.
I was really impressed with Alfa Romeo. The 159 looked very nice and the Brera which will be a new model is one of the better new cars i've seen in a long time (apart from the x-trail that is)
I've put alot of pictures on my MSN Spaces page. You're all more than welcome to see them at
(Sorry, no X-Trail pictures there )
