@planet_rocker: What scale are those 1:32 or 1:64?

Here's a 1-18 Scale Lancer Evolution from AutoArt that I am yet to open.

Thanks guys.

@siddvi: Got for USD180 with direct shipping to UAE, I feel that is reasonable, cause the Diecast shop out here is charging between AED700 to AED1500 for FM and DM cars and there isn't much to choose from really.

@pradster: I will try to get some interior pictures but it will be a bit tough... as the window space isn't much to collect any details through for a picture.

@RPMPKDMFF: I totally agree with you. I wish there were more sites catering to India shipping though some of them do, the shipping costs are very expensive. Also can't trust the customs and the postal service here in handling the package safe.

Last year, I made a bulk purchase from AutoArt which cost me a bomb. With my purchase, they did send a free color catalog of their models. The more you see the catalog, the more you are enticed into buying. A good marketing move. Here's a few snaps from the AutoArt catalog.

WOW!! I would love to own that manual. Just so that I could drool over those!! BTW, does anyone want a Toyota Celica from AA?? Its only 2K.

Also, I would like to exchange my Carrera GT for a good Merc/BMW. Anyone in Bombay interested?

Too Bad, If the same had been available about a month back, I could have picked it up on my visit to Bombay that time.

This would be my pick from the lot.

@ Cyrus: I would love to have that as I don't have that model in my collection, but again I don't have a mercedes for exchange.

I envy you Siddvi It is perfect in everyway.

Do you only use the car for street racing or do you take it to the Special Stages? Evo without mud on its body is just another Street Race car

The Count for Veyron is very limited. and LP640 you'll find a lot just browse through the pages. But LP670... Humm i'm not sure is they have a scale model for that yet.

Anyways speaking of Lambo's Check this out guys:
