Edition38 is the go-to weekender for anyone interested in Volkswagens (and all other VAG cars of course). Although the majority of show-goers tend to look forward to the camping and nightlife shenanigans, E38’s Show & Shine brings some of the highest quality cars from all over the UK and Europe (in fact, the Euro turnout seems to grow significantly year on year). Every time I drive into Overstone Park, I’m greeted to that distinctly chilled, summertime vibe which I’ve come to love… 2017’s event was no different. Albeit noticeably quieter than previous years, the showground was still full of some incredible metal which kept me occupied all day. With a live-stage providing music and inviting owners and their cars up to talk about their builds, there’s plenty going on in the background whilst you’re left to check out the cars in the sun. Check out my roundup below…

This year’s giveaway car!

 

If you’re into Volkswagens, then Edition38 still remains a must. As usual, this year’s event showed us an incredible mixture from the VAG back catalog with cars to cater for all modifying tastes… Whether you like squeeky-clean, or rat-look, or anything in between, E38 has it all, along with the camping, nightlife (dance tent), food & drink stalls, and heaps of traders. And guess what, they even raffle off a modified car each year! Still not been? Well, what have you been waiting for? Get it in your calendar for next year.
