For anyone planning to go. $6 for weekday, $8 for weekend. That's half-price, but don't worry, you'll still get gouged on food and parking. smile

Good job dparm! Nice way to get some exercise since you probably have to walk 5 blocks from a moderately priced parking lot/garage. But those pretty models make it all worthwhile. approved

The new M4 is sweet. The new 2-series is also pretty neat...







Oh yeah, and so is the RC-F as well as the Toyota FT-1...

The RC F is secksy. I'm anxious to see it in the flesh, and to drive one. I hope they put some soul into it, as the IS F felt a bit too sterile for me. I'd consider it as my next car in a few years; the new M3/M4 isn't really doing it for me with the twin-turbo I-6.

The last time I went to the auto show in Chicago, I was directed to park inside of a gigantic old warehouse.

I had my doubts if my car would still be there at the end of the day... or if the doors to the warehouse would be closed and locked, and everyone would be gone.

LOL really? Why didn't you just park at the huge garage attached to McCormick Place?

I don't think they had the huge garage back then... This was likely at least 20 years ago.

Well, parking at McCormick Place is a lot more civil these days. Also a lot more expensive. smile

Take the train, OK I don't know if the train runs there in Chicago, but it drops you off right at the Philly Auto Show. Going there in February with my brother and nephew. Lunch will be chicken pot pie at the Reading Terminal Market, served by some Amish folks, mmmm good eating. It should be an excellent day. grin
