I'm with Robert. I lost interest after a steward made me feel like I was a naughty kid out of line when I was simply driving to a stand to receive something I had purchased! Robert had the hazards going and the strobes as the golf was dolled up to be a German police car and we were going at a snail pace so I'm insure what the problem was! After the car was mapped we left as the joy had been taken out of it as we were refused to go back to our stand!

Unless there is something new and exciting I'm out... Would rather put the 500 I would spend on travel, accom and access towards a awesome holiday out of the uk!

My fav part of the shows is the banter you get with the people you travel down with! The show is an added extra

I guess its a show for all cars with GTI on them, so why does it feel as though its a German only car show ?

Good point mate...the French gave Ze-Germans a bloody good run for thier money back in the 80's/90's

The VW scene frankly bores me and also seems very very clique'ee and not very wecoming to outsiders.

Agree fella.... Try owning a Seat and attending VAG shows! People look down at you straight away! Was great in 2010 when IbizaOC won best Club Stand at GTi Inters! Our first show season, and we made a real impression!

However, to have any chance of winning show n shines, most of the time it's a case of who you are, or how much money has been spent on the cars! Edition38 it a cracker for that IMO!

I even walked through the judging tent with a couple of people who entered, and how the judge is shocking TBH! (Don't mark scores etc there and then, they make "notes" and score from memory!!!! So those notes will be more like "Ibiza Mk4, red, slammed, 45 degree camber, bbs rims = WIN lol)

Isn't the name 'Gran Tourer' GT'i come originally from France, not German ?

Any car made as a GT/GTI should be welcomed to a show that shows GTI's imo.

The judging is a bit cr+p tbh, they should be marking the points as the look at them, pity most show and shine dont care if the car has very rare items and originality, it just has to be clean is the vibe i get from most of them.

I'd just like to bring up a few points on the remarks regarding judging.

At GTI, the show n shine classes are self judged by people in the same class as yourself. The Concours (standard) cars are then judged by myself (someone who has been doing this for many years - both judging and being judged). It's a simple system whereby I assume your car is perfect and worth 10/10 - regardless of model - and then deduct points or half points for things I find wrong with them...and they are most definitely scored at the point of judging, not afterwards. Having been judged many times in the past myself I know what annoys any car owner with regards to judging and will treat every car with the same attention as the next one.

So please be assured that any car judged by me is done fairly and very in depth. I don't care who owns the car, what model it is or anything else...it is a case by case judging on the same ******** for all cars. Some comments on here whilst I believe may be directed at other shows, don't make this clear and I just wanted to put the record straight as I take the judging very seriously - if someone takes pride in their car, they deserve that and then some. After all I know how much hard work goes int o making and keeping a car looking good.

Thanks

Ye I wish I thought they was all as fair as that. I enter my polo into a few shows nar but because I've not got a mortgage to pay for my mods I always look out of place even though it looks as good as any other.

But all that behind me I will be entering the show and shine again this year but with Standed as high as they are and not many daily cars enter. I feel I've lost already
