2009 Geneva Motor Show

Hey people,

I'm looking at going to Geneva for the Car show, probably on a week day.

Any one else going? The website offers some details and it seems that it's gonna be a great one!

http://www.salon-auto.ch/en/

I suppose there'll be lots of 'Green' cars but some big V8's or V12's as well.

Would anyone have any advice as to whether week days will be the same as the weekend or will the weekend of the 14th & 15th be a better time with more unveilings? When would be the best day to go?

cheers & ciao

Usually it is pretty crowded all the way through and w/ends are a real nightmare but you'll survive ...

The new models are unveiled on press and investor days, you don't really think they save the exclusivity for the hoi polloi do you...

Avoid weekends at all costs.

Your local "friendly" car/bike dealership. - That's where I've got my free entrance tickets in the past.

Hello Pinocchio.
Are you ready to put your money where your mouth is and bet some money on that?

Considering that unless you're Salon management there's no way of knowing exactly which stands present this year and which ones are closed, pretty much yes.

Lambo, Ferrari, Maserati, Bentley... what's not to know. Again, are you taking back what you said or are you ready to put some money forward?

How about we bet a self-ban for a month?

Let me see your money, bucko. I have a list of all the closed stands on my desk, and for the moment you're missing quite a few.
