Pick your Parisian Poison: What were your Favorite Concept and Production Debuts at this year's Paris Show?

With the 2010 Paris Motor Show officially finished from the car fan's perspective, it's time to see what debuts people thought were the real winners and losers. From VW's less-than-lackluster Passat to the revelation of the entire new Lotus lineup, there were some very conversation-inspiring appearances this year.

Many manufacturers showed they could compete in Paris with attractive concepts, while others, who pride themselves on style, brought a dollop of bland with beige peppered on top. Segments were re-entered, recreated, and started, all in Paris.

So, car people, the question to ponder is this: what was your favorite concept and what was your favorite production car? Feel free to express which ones you were disappointed in, too.
