Not much of anything new was at the BMW display except for this M6. Dinan had a modified M3 on display. Well, it's back to my office tonight.

The poor photo quality is because these were taken with my Treo 650.

The orange turn signals really really screw up the look of this car for me, it's a crying shame. I'll take a rain check for the E92 M3 afterall.

On topic: I'm waiting til next week, during the week so that I won't have to fight the crowds and all that hoop lah, everyone is at work and school then, more space and room for me.

The last auto show I was at in San Diego (1-2 years ago) was actually very nice.

Vehicles at this LA show that stuck out in mind were the Lexus LF-A Concept car with rear facing radiator and silly looking fans that cool them, the Mitsubishi Eclipse concept car, the new Escalade and Chevy SUVs with newly redesigned interiors/dash boards, the Mercedes CLS which practically decapitated me as I tried to get into the rear seats, an Audi SUV (Touareg size), the Chrysler Firepower and some of Honda's vehicles. I was actually quite impressed with the Hondas (S2000, Element, Civic Si) --lots of gadgets, but handy.

How was the M6? All the M6's I've seen testing have all been Euro spec.

Well, I visited four separate halls, sat or crawled into practically everything I could, dropped my cell phone, which someone was nice enough to turn in so I could recover it, talked to sales reps, had lunch, etc. all in the span of about 3 hours. Wish I had more time to take photographs, but had to get ready for work tonight.
