I thought you had the E class in saloon and not in estate.

Won BMW 7 series (E65) pre facelift kyosho on ebay in excellent condition with box for half the price the car is worth.
I have the Saloon in the Current Spec and the Station wagon in silver like yours. Kyosho. Was my first Kyosho too. Also, there was a SL-Black in slver, buy got the White as the SL63 was white. I like MAtching cars.

@Cyrus43:Congratulations on the new rides!That Aston One77 is stunning.I have a Mercedes Benz SL65 AMG Black by Minichamps in grey.Bought it from Gift Centre on a trip to Mumbai last month.Are all three of your latest aquisitions by Mondo?On a different note,isn't the MPH Show the one that featured TopGear Live?Dude,I'm jealous.

@Anyone Who's Been To Automania:The website mentions they have the Bentley Mulsanne and the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG in stock.Can someone who's visited the store confirm?Also,since you've checked out the store already while I don't get to go there until next month...dude,I'm jealous.

No. they are different. Mondo makes better cars, but the Quality feels Flimsy. They look really really good in the showcase though. And thats the end of it. On the other hand, Moromax makes some great cars and has good quality too. I guess Sheer Build Quality wise, probably they are all the same, with maisto being slightly heavier, but Mondo looking slightly better in some cases. However, the Mondo M3 is better than the Motormax.

What i mean to say is that some of mondo and motormax models are same, example cayenne turbo, m3, slk amg, tt and others. Check some of their models.
Maybe they are manufactured by same company.

Yeah I have, but they arent the same. for example, the Mondo has an openable boot on the M3 and the motormax doesnt. Also, the motormax uses a Different system of fastening their wheels as compared to mondo.

Thanks for the info about mondo and motormax, both m3 look similar.
Anyways your SL black looks nice in white, in earlier photos it didn't look that great maybe cause of flash.
Where did u pickup the gto from, ebay?

@Cyrus: The 288 GTO is one model where I feel the Hot Wheels is way better than the Bburago. I have a Hot Wheels in my collection. Nice pictures though.

Isn't this the one model where the scale thing goes slightly haywire? If I remember correctly, its a 1:16, not a 1:18.

Or is it?
