Need a bigger venue?

Just got back, parking first directed to shopping centre next door, didn't fancy that went round again got into venue the next time.

Thinking ricoh has reached it limits for sell out events.

on another note, shame not to see glare products there this year.

Just got back myself. Another good year, but my word it was busy.

Having to queue just to get near the Autobrite stand for example. Definitely felt like the best-attended Waxstock to date. Wasn't as easy to move around with all extra people, so didn't manage to say hello to everyone I was planning to catch up with.

Picked up a few bits, will post pics later.

Yes the M2 looked awesome, it was my first time and it was busy, I must say though I was surprised to see that almost all of the "show" cars around the arena were quite swirled and scratched, being a weekend warrior I thought my own efforts would look poor compared to everything I saw there but I was surprised

Have to agree with you regarding the show cars. I was expecting my car to look terrible in comparison!

Attended myself went for a hour - really not happy due to seeing people with bags and even a bloke with a open jacket with a zip scrapping down SBs M2 - I did pulled him up for it!

I was thinking about when I get my RS to do the top 16 but after seeing some inconsiderate a holes I won't unless they use ropes around the car

I thought it was well spaced at one end but really cramped at the other

The queue for the autobrite stand was crazy I went back twice as I wanted a brush set but gave up in the end and bought some from sam's detailing

Some of the car's on show were far from show ready imho but us all being in the detailing scene are going to expect somewhat perfection to me some of the show n shine car's were better.Don't get me wrong there were some cracking metal on display the rx7 near the fusso stand was exceptional and you could see the paint was near flawless.

All in all another great show with some great car's on display and trader's offering great deal's and new product's but think it's time to kick it up a notch
