My one big gripe with this show are the traders not displaying prices. Autofinesse has some great looking products but sadly I will never buy any as they don't feel the need to price the products. Most of the traders were much better in this respect than last year but there is still much room from improvement.

I agree with the comments about the Autobrite stand being chaos. It is far too dark/tight for all the customers.....I feel they should be in the middle of the arena.

I think I will give it a miss next year as together with the issues above I couldn't see much difference in the show price and online price. The cost of 2 tickets and fuel makes the show prices irrelevant in most(not all) cases.
Autofinesse was priced up, they had tags on the shelfs.

I didn't see many. A few odd things were priced but most that I saw were not.

Was my first Waxstock for me and my mate, enjoyed the day but I thought I'd put my 2p worth in...

AB Direct stand was probably busy because it was cheap... REALLY CHEAP... maybe if a few other manufacturers rocked up instead of dealers then they may have been just as busy. A reseller/Dealer cant do silly deals on price which is what I expected a bit more of if I'm honest - they had there deals but they didnt blow me or my mate away. When you take in account £12 for ticket then fuel getting there the odd 10/15% saving makes no difference really.

Wished AutoGlanz were there as I used a few of there products lately and wanted to say Hi/Thanks and maybe spend some of my hard earned with them.

Carspunk.... getting approached by there sales chap with the intro line "what you reckon on the name then eh???" then proceeded to tell me and my mate about the name for 5 minutes and how people like watching celebrity juice with dildos on there... absolutely nowt about any of there products or why we should maybe look at there stuff, what stands out in there range... nothing... turned me right off them straight away, the name is a gimmick, nothing more nothing less!

Was cool how parking was subsidized as Ricoh prices looked really expensive!

Some of the cars inside in the show and shine were awful... its a detailing show... some of the cars in the car park looked way better, hell even mine looked a bit better than some inside! I know that sounds *****y but I expected wayyyy more from a detailing show and shine.... side note to this.... so many new cars in the show and shine... surely it cant be that hard to get a brand new/new car looking absolutely spotless? Hell I dunno... Im not going in on anyone just my thoughts!

The lady on the Obsession wax stand was great, me and my mate had a little chat with her and got some small pots, very informative and very polite!

And to finish... i dont think I have heard so much *****yness and unprofessional chat in one place... other companies reporting back to there stand slagging other companies off, it doesnt make you look good it makes you look weak and childish. Let your products and your staff sell itself... dont resort to going in on other companies!

Might sound mege negative but I had a good day and spent to pennies on some goodies and had fun!

Nice catch up meeting the usual suspects and nice meeting a load of new people.

Looking forward to next year.

Was surprised by the top 3 tbh, were some better cars among them imo and some pretty big mistakes on some of the top 3

Oh and who's was the Clio in top 16? Top job from the cheapest car in the room, a credit to the owner
Thanks Kimo that was my clio in the top 16. I was really chuffed to have it in there and I had put so much time and effort into doing so. I thought it stood its own in there in the end haha
