Default A80 Shooting tips for Auto Show

Hey all, just got my A80 yesterday from B&H (after an arduous decision process). I'm heading over to the Chicago Auto Show tomorrow and plan to take a LOT of pix. I took around 300-400 last year with my film camera. Anyways, does anyone have possible shooting tips for the conditions I'll experience? Unfortunately, I won't have much time to experiment with my new digicam before the show.

My main concern is light reflection of the cars. Is there a filter or something that can help with this? I may be able to run over to Wolf or Ritz camera to pick one up if there is. Thanks.

My tip is try not to use flash. I shot some pics at the Sydney Motor Show last year, and with flash it's way too harsh. Motor shows typically have lots of bright lights shining everywhere - learn to make the best use of it.
