Eight Things to Expect in MIAS 2012

Taken from Google

As MIAS is just around the corner, what do we need to expect next? I just got it here so please do read and enjoy. Let me know your experience ayt? ^_^

1. Car launches
Like in the world's biggest car shows, major car manufacturers choose the MIAS as the launch pad for their new vehicles. Just to name a few cars that are expected to be launched on the show's opening day are the all-new Ford Ranger pickup truck and the 2.0-liter 4x2 variant of the Explorer sport-utility vehicle, the Hyundai Veloster compact hatchback and Eon city car, the all-new Subaru Impreza-based XV crossover, the Chrysler 300C luxury sedan with the eight-speed slushbox, the Mini Cooper Roadster and Coupe, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe, the Foton Thunder pickup truck and the Chana King Long van. You can also just ogle at the cars on display as BMW will showcase its lineup of M high-performance models led by the all-new M5.

2. Affordable financing deals from BPI Family Auto Loans
Thanks to the success of last year's show, BPI Family Auto Loans is again officially presenting MIAS. Known for its Auto Madness campaigns, special financial packages await car buyers with the bank's various financing schemes.

3. The Petron-MIAS Custom Classic Car Competition
Petron, one of the biggest oil firms in the Philippines, is the main presenter of the Petron-MIAS Custom Classic Car Competition (MCCC). Some 100 custom, vintage and classic cars will compete for top honors like the highly-coveted Petron-MCCC Best of Show award.

4. Racing-oriented displays and activities
Since the theme of MIAS 2012 is Life in the Fast Lane, it's only appropriate that the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP)--the country's oldest automotive association that is affiliated with the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile--will honor the country's top drivers in its 17th annual Motorsport Awards. Actor and former race car driver Jomari Yllana will also launch his Yllana Racing Team at the show with his highly-customized Hyundai Genesis drift race car. Tuason Racing School, meanwhile, will conduct seminars on racing techniques and road safety.

5. A display led by the Philippines' top aftermarket tuners and shops

Motul, through its local distributor AutoPlus, will showcase what it calls as "the Philippines' fastest: a highly-customized Ford GT supercar and a Nissan GTR, as both cars broke the 200mph (over 322kph) barrier at a recent speed festival event. Mercedes-Benz luxury tuner brand Carlsson, through Wheel Gallery, will also showcase two highly-customized Mercedes-Benzes, complete with engine modifications and bodyworks.

6. Crazy car stunts by Russ Swift
Before there was Ken Block, there was Russ Swift and he's be back for the sixth straight year to regale his audience with stunts that require the keenest of skills and utmost precision. Not bad, really, for a senior citizen who can probably outdrive us any day of the week.

7. Aftermarket parts and accessories
MIAS isn't just about new cars and car shows. Shops that sell aftermarket parts and accessories will also be around. So if you're looking for a set of alloy wheels or car tint for your car, or even just a t-shirt to go with the stickers you bought, you'll find it here.

8. Kid-friendly activities
Just because there are loads of cars and a bevy of beautiful babes at the show, it doesn't mean MIAS 2012 isn't kid-friendly. If you'll be bringing your children along while you're shopping for a new car, drop them off at the Red Rock Travel booth for a free face-painting session. There's also a Formula 1 library where they can read about their favorite drivers or circuits. Is your little one creative? Let him or her join the on-the-spot drawing contest of his or her favorite F1 scene for a chance to win a prize.
Again, let me know how it goes. ^_^
