Maybe itís just me but I found the show to be kinda lame, Iíve been going to it for 10+ years and there seem to be less and less stuff every year, there wasnít anything there that I was wowíd by

You gotta go to the first look for Charity. If you are someone who is really into the show and actually looks at the upcoming tech and wants to see potential car purchases, that is the only way to do it

I wish more events did this. Open a day early, charge an exorbitant admission so I don’t have to be around ignorant people and their kids. #alloftheprivilege

This!

I've gone to the first look event the last 3 or 4 years in a row. It's well worth it. Complimentary food and drinks, very small crowd, almost every car is unlocked, and they raffle off two cars.

I took my girlfriend with me on Friday and she enjoyed it. She's in the market for a new car and had a chance to sit in all of the vehicles she's interested in. We both had a good time. She's not really a fan of doing car stuff with me, but that's one event I can get her to go to. Plus it's close enough to Valentine's day, that I'm off the hook for doing anything expensive or extravagant for V-day haha.

The show sucks when the site isnt in it. If I go this year, its only go objectify all the women in yoga pants.

You could just go to Target for that. It's a lot less frustrating lol.

Thatís another thing I was disappointed by this year, the Fiat girls are always looking hot in nice dresses but this year they were wearing fancy pants booo

Overall the eye candy was lacking too

Ive wanted to go, but I hate crowds. I used to take days off work to go during the week, but just no interest.

I loved how Kia tried to do what Jeep does with a huge ramp to show off capability. Kia had a ramp that literally a Corvette could make it over. Wish I took a pic!

I would guess mid to upper 40s. Plus probably a markup.

Went yesterday with free tickets. Overcrowded, hot, nothing of worth seeing (though I did like the slight facelift to the Golf R). Definitely a TON of ass tho, christ.

The show is much more exciting when youre part of it rather than just visiting. I doubt I'll go again in the future unless there is a car I HAVE to see.
