Yeah I'll agree with the previous thoughts. Was easily pointing out stone chips and swirls on many of the cars.

My first time at Waxstock, and despite my first thoughts walking into the arena being 'is this it?' I was surprised at how much was in the show, and such a variety of cars.

Took loads of pictures so I'll whack them up when I get home, but I'll happily go again

My first time. I absolutely loved it and just about managed to stay on budget (no thanks to the odk boys). I'm going to start saving for next year. I do have to agree the parking wasn't great but please don't move, its on my doorstep.

Surely there should have some watching the show cars I would be ****ed off if that had happened to my car

I'm still fuming about it now and until they do this I'm afraid I won't be attending even if my car is not in it

I also noticed a few people touching cars for some bizarre reason and as you say not really being bothered what they did with there bags full of gear as they marched past people's cars !

Yes I'm sure it will put a lot of people off , people with no respect and don't care about the time and effort getting the cars to great standard for the show

Was my first time there, definitely too busy! i felt it had a much larger open space in the middle which could have been better used and around the sides it was too tight, it had massively died down around 2:30 though so I was able to go around again and try and talk to some of the people at the stands... also agree with the above comments the cars should have been roped off, but as gas head said, a bigger venue would be ideal as you'd need space to rope cars off.

I want to know why there were swirls on show cars? I guess a lot of weekend warriors attend these without the right equipment/ knowledge thinking they have clean cars. Big difference between clean and damn near perfect. I see it a lot on car club meets and rallies. Always get the old guy with an immaculate car in perfect condition, except the swirls...

Totally agree with bigger venue. I think it needs to be split into different areas of detailing so for example you could have a wax section, polishing section etc with more demonstrations, not just a heavy gtech presence, more companies etc. As if I'm being honest you can get around everything in less than an hour without looking at the show cars....

I had to park in the retail section, it said upto 5 hours unless and event was on so im guessing that was just the major events.

I was just going to go in the arrive and shine but said there was no space, i walk in and the quite a few spaces which was a shame.

It was alot busier than before, i think next time i'll just go later and risk some products going out of stock.

I've been to eveyone but this one was a little crowded.
