Andy and the guys at XS World have been rocking the European events calendar for over a decade now. Working with some of the best venues on the continent, they always lay on a great show, ranging from smaller meets and coffee nights to headlines such as this one - XS CarNight Italy.

This is the first time the team has laid on a big show outside of their home base of Austria, venturing across the border to Italy, presumably to avoid the Police harassment that seemed to plague modified cars owners in Worthersee last year. But of course, officially we're reading between the lines there, all we've got to say about that is that when we found out this event was being held at the Messe Bozen in South Tyrol, Italy, we knew we'd be making the trip with a full complement of our top Detailing Products. 

As it turns out though, the journey was pretty easy, not to mention fun. XS CarNight Italy was actually the main event in a group of meets and shows over a few days in their South Tyrol Tour. It was also the last stop on our own mini Spring tour of Europe.

You see, as we'd already attended XS Car Night Classic the day before and Tuning World Bodensee In Germany just a day or two before that) we were already, relatively speaking, in the vicinity. Far from loading up at the Detailing Academy as usual, we'd already done all that stuff, so it was more a case of having a little fun on the mountain roads and motorways on our way from the Classic show venue in Franzenfeste, to the mighty Messe Bozen. And, lets face it, any opportunity to get the cars out for a long blast is more than welcome with us.

So, not only was XS CarNight Italy pretty epic in itself (and we'll get to that in a bit) but so was the journey to the venue. Suffice to say that, among others, our Pandem Yaris GR and bagged VW Transporter got a good thrashing along the way. Naturally with a little stop off to detail away the evidence of the tarmac terrorism.

The set up at any show is always a big deal, especially at a premier event like this one that's more than a few miles away from our home base… and even our European Distribution Centre at the Nürburgring. But fear not, it's amazing just how much you can fit in a long wheelbase VW Transporter and a huge support van - suffice to say we made sure we had plenty of top detailing products to go around.

As an extra special public preview, we also included a few of our new products before they were officially on sale, including our Car Care Worldwide Hoodie, Oversized Signature Hoodie and a selection of V3 Race Tags. Of course, being such a special part of our mini Euro tour of Germany and Italy, we also had an exclusive, special edition Air Freshener and Tee on sale, which we're only available for the stops on the tour. Future collectors' items we have no doubt!

Once our full indoor pop-up store was set up and ready to go, we followed the traditional AF showtime routine of perfecting our project cars on display, and opening up nice and early so other display car owners can get their essentials to finish off their cars before the doors open to the public. Don't worry, it's all part of the service.

It almost goes without saying that XS CarNight is all about the mental cars. Here you'll find some of the highest quality builds not just in Europe but anywhere in the world. Put simply you won't see another event quite like theirs anywhere else on the planet. In fact, with so many on display here in Italy, not to mention all the other stuff going on, it'd be impossible to show them all - it's the kind of deal where you just have to be there.

That said, here's a couple of extra special galleries of our favourite pics from our evening with the guys from XS, have a swipe through and you'll see exactly why we loved it so much…

With XS CarNight Italy all done and dusted, and a few jars raised to attending a full trio of events in Europe in under a week, just a quick overnight stop off and we were soon ploughing through the 16-odd hour drive home. Thanks to everyone who came by the stand, and it goes without saying that we'll definitely be seeing see you at the next one.
