Kyosho 1/18 Scale E92 Re-released?

Well, my wife surprised me this past Valentine's Day with a Kyosho 1/18th scale model of my car, a silverstone E92 witht he 18" wheels, carbon fiber roof, Tech package, etc. The only thing different is the aluminum trim inside instead of my carbon leather. I've had Kyosho models in the past, but I never get over the level of detail these things have. Even the NAV screen is like the real deal.

I know it's been hard to get ahold of one of these models for a long time, in any color, so the fact that she managed to snag up this Silverstone model, which has been out of production for over a year, leads me to believe they finally re-released them

Congrats! Lovely present from the wife. I have an alpine white one I snagged a year and a half ago that matches my car! I love the 1/18 scale die-cast models (Autoart models are my favorite so far and my Hotwheels elite F430 Scuderia has lots of detail as well).

I noticed they had released a bunch of new models too, but it looks like the details and colors aren't the exact factory specs as the dealer versions? For instance, I notice there is a metallic white color available in the new models, but not the BMW alpine white.

I have been looking for the e92 silverstone for the last 3 months. I found gray with tech and black trim but not the silverstone. Silverstone was only available on e93. Can you please tell where she found it, (if online, link would be great or a product ID number)?
Thanks

Yes, that's where she bought it:
http://burlingtonreplicas.com/kyosho.html

More specifically (my car):
http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/yhst-1351833..._2089_70054907

Sorry, I'm not going to take pictures when they're available online. The model pictured is what I received. It's extrememly nice. Now I need to buy a display case to keep the dust out

Here are the dealer edition part numbers:


80430422601 BMW M3 COUPE (E92) :Alpine White
80430422602 BMW M3 COUPE (E92) :Interlagos Blue
80430422603 BMW M3 COUPE (E92) :Melbourne Red

Kyosho just released the E92 M3 hobby version in pearl white and silver. Same model as DE but without the Euro plates or the carbon leather. They should be available to order from your local dealer but the Alpine White is getting harder to find.

Fantastic model!

The dealer editions have European license plates and carbon leather. They also come in a BMW marked box. They are limited to around 5,000 pieces.
