I can't wait to see what you have done. IIRC you haven't modified anything in some time eh.

@manishalive: Its all Miuras. Is the Miura a Bburago? Where did you pick it?
Paid a bomb ya.. got them from Bangkok. In INR, it comes to Rs. 2200/- for the gold and Rs. 2900/- for the black..
But they're worth it !

@siddvi: Tnx for the comments, i was not surprised about so many ppl asking about the tractor. Apparently, my father received it as a gift when he was on a visit. I dont think, this is being sold. you may need to approach someone at mahindras to see if they sell it as a merchandise.

sadly, i couldnt find the make either.

PS: im thinking.. shud i auction the tractor? any takers?

Yeah. that is coz everything I buy is perfect as it is.

Anyways, coming back to the 318i. Its just as I like it now. Euro Street style. Minimalist mods, no over the top Jap body mods here. Even that spoiler I put a few days ago has been removed now. It now sports a set of Black BMW BBS wheels and a Gloss Black bonnet Nothing over the top.

IIRC, long time back Mahindra had put out their purchase requirement for bulk diecast models of tractors in a trade journal. And as usual one of the diecast manufacturers must have received an order to supply these tractor models. Would be good if Mahindra sells it as a merchandise in their showrooms.
We should probably have a auction section as well on TBHP

@manishalive: Thanks for the online links, the Bburago brand Miura looks great.
@Cyrus43: Great set of wheels. Are just the wheels available in stores here or did you salvage it from a different car?

Here's the second, 1:27 Scale - Ford F350 Super Duty
Make - Maisto
