Lucky you Neil!

I have been keeping an eye out for more 1M VO models, but they are all sold out. Sometimes you see one on ebay.de or .com but they always fetch three to four times the original price of 59 euros!

just dropped by a dealership and saw some models of the new m5 and wanted the 1M model ... coincidently this thread is back.

Parts department ran a nationwide search and found nothing.

The 1:43 scale model that BMW dealers sold was only available in VO and it was limited to only 2,000 models(produced). They sold for 59 euros from BMW. I have seen used ones from 60 to 200 euros for sale on ebay or other model shops in Germany. No 1:18 scale models were made of the 1M.

You can find these 1M models from time to time on ebay.de Just do a search for: "1er M Coupe".

6,331 / 3 = 2,110. So, based on that 'guesstimate' quasi the same goes for the 1:1 VO model.

In August 2011 Brian Watts (Head of Marketing & Sales for BMW M worldwide) confirmed the following in an interview with BimmerFile:
"We kept the colors pretty much limited. We did, you know, black, white and Valencia Orange. And pretty much that's how they've sold: a third, a third, a third."

Quote: 08:19-08:28 of the interview

One just sold on ebay.de for EUR 104,87 and had 15 Gebote or bidders..

http://www.ebay.de/itm/BMW-1-43-1er-...item19d645d895

Not a bad profit for what cost the original buyer probably 59 euros..

If it was not an online sale, one might have tried this technique in an attempt to lower the price:
