Scale cars, where to buy ?

I want to buy 1:18 scale car, White color

EBay shows this dealer scale car, but in Taiwan and too expensive:

Who knows a good website to buy scale cars in USA ?

I got the one from Welt. It is OK for the price. Used the 10 Euros credit.

I got my 1:18 white one from the dealer years ago. Then waited a few years and finally picked up the full size white one in Germany last year.

Your local dealership should be able to order stuff for you.

Really depends on the level of detail you want. Traditionally, Kyosho and AUTOArt models have an extremely high level of detail and fidelity to the real thing. The $26-$50 ones are ok, but little things like the trunk not opening may or may not bother you.

The dealer edition has been sold out for a while now. Anything you buy now will be pre-owned.

I have a 1:18 Scale Auto Art E46 M3 (Carbon Blk/ Cinnamon).

Auto Art really is top of the game for model cars

Kind of disappointing no one made a 1:18 Scale E90 M3.

BMW Fairfax, call the parts counter. Ask them if they have any left "in the box right on front of the register on the parts counter". They had about ten left last time.

I agree they are nice models. Problem is finding one that I wanted--e92 m3 in alpine white. Didnt see any on the auto art site.
