Thanks. The 1:18 205 I got from France, but I am sure its available elsewhere, paid quite a bit then, one of my favorite cars so had to get it (in the 1st pic you will see a 1:24 205, by BBurago, got it some 15 years back, one of my first 'non playing' models') . The 206 is from London. Both Solido.

Corolla from Mumbai, Focus WRC - Ebay.

Went to Shopper's Stop yesterday in Bangalore. Saw an M5 1:18 scale from Maisto. Cost : 1275/- (apprx)

Those intersted can have a look. Two colours i saw were silver and maroon.

Cyrus, the Silvia looks great. Go with it.
Benbsb, I happened to check out the M5 yesterday again and compared to the Norev Audi A6 and the Kyosho Mercedes Benz E class, the BMW is out of scale. More like 1:19 than 1:18. The paint on the silver one is horrible...terribly horrible. The headlights are all wrong and the grills are really wonky.
