Kyosho 1/18 Dealer M3

After seeing a post about the dealer M3 scale model several weeks ago, I've been dying to get my hands on one. I found an exact replica of my car on eBay. It arrived today after being shipped from Taiwan just 3 days ago! Excellent quality and attention to detail--Here are some pics:

Set up a pic of it outside on some dirt with some cool back drop and I bet it would look real. Do they have e90's in other colors?

I paid $400 for mine. I'm ok with it since they are rare finds for sure.

Mini-champs has very good models, costly but looks 100% as far as details.

Very nice find! Congrats! They are hard to find nowadays. I have one as well and keep it on display inside the home. I wax it every now and then, too. I have a dealer e46 CSL version, too. I need to get another plastic display box from TAP Plastics for it.

Question: Is there any way to find ZCP wheels for it?? I think I saw a car for sale with custom wheels but it was way expensive.

Good to know about the tap plastics display case. I was just going to display it on my bookshelf. Btw you know how many models were produced?

I thought the rims were zcp but come to think of it the model came about before BMW offered the zcp package. If you find out how and where to change the rims Let me know!
