When Pap and I were at Leipzig that was in Sept(I think>?) that was the last time I saw the models sold at any BMW place. Not even at the Welt did they sell them! Most of the models were sold to bmw insiders and thru their (German)dealer network.
Sometimes I see them on ebay.de for ridiculous prices.
They actually did sell them at the Welt shop. I bought 2 of the 6 they had in stock in August 2011. I posted on this site while I was at the welt asking if anyone wanted one, but didn't get a response back until I had left the welt, and then got several requests. I forgot to take into account the time change.
I now wish I would have bought all 6 at the time.
