Click the link above to see all the photos I took from the show.

The highlight of that event for me was when I got to sit inside of a BMW M5. It'* a beautiful, absolutely perfect car.

i have to agree wih the bmw m5 they were awsome. for some reason only gm ford and bmw are the only cars i can stand to drive. mostly because i personally must like how the car feels and mostly how much visablity(sp) the car has and mostl car only have lwhat looks like a foot of view between the dash and roof. ill admit that i fell for bmw at that auto show i sat and ever car i could and bmw just felt the best and they had the one thing that shocked me and it was that i was in line to sit in a 3 series and their was this dad and his son and his son was screaming and yelling and people were loud and i got in the car closed the door and it went quiet . i open the door it was loud again and closed it again in disbleve(sp) and right their i fell for bmw. im sorry guys i love my bonneville but that was was to me perfect on the outside and inside BUT i havent drove one and that well be the what makes be decide bmw for not. but i do know that i wont be able ot afford one till so im old so i got awhile.

My family is hardcore GM all the way, more specifically, Pontiac. But when they saw the M5, they were seriously impressed with it, as was I. It'* truly an engineering marvel.

Want the ultimate visibility? Drive any Honda.

Good pictures. Did you see that Ford Shelby?

The lady presenting it said that it only wants 108 octane rating.

???

I saw it, but I didn't read about it. I was just staring in awe.

Oh, it seems like when you saw it the car wasn't being presented. When I went there there was a large crowd of people sorrounding the car. The lady that was presenting the Shelby was joking around with the guy presenting the Mustang.

I remember there was an elderly couple in front of me. The presenter said to them on the microphone : "If you step on the gas in this car, it will blow both of your hats off".

And the two old people staring at her
ha ha very funny.

I believe it. 600 horses of Detroit muscle under that hood would blow away most cars.
