Plz asvise!!!
Guys..... These were limited production, only made in one color (VO) and fairly hard to find. Read the thread!! All your questions and more have been answered a bunch of times.

you MAY be able to luck out and find one at a toy show or something in Germany (heck Messed came across a few ) but odds are against you

I just called my dealer to buy the very last 1:43 VO 1M scalemodel they have in their showroom displays. They had 3 or 4 of them the last year.

€ 61,- incl vat.

A pity it wasn't available in AW

Going to collect it tomorrow.

Cheers
Robin

Noop. The 1M models were sold thru the German dealers too. BMW made(or rather has the Chinese model maker make) 1K 1M models. And then I think it was Scott26 who said they made a 2nd batch.

When I was at Leipzig Werk with Papethova - they only had 200 models for sale - at discount prices bmw employees. At least that is what the guy at plant told me.

They are VERY hard to find. I have asked my German dealer a few times to try and reorder more 1M models. Always the same... no more are made.

Even when I heard that BMW was making a 1:43 scale model it was in April I think... I told me dealer to order one for me... the model did not arrive until June! Normally parts come the next day.

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.

Dack, we were in Leipzig on the 19th of September and they had some (about a dozen) left on the side... the 200 you saw must have been when you went in early September (I think the 6th). I was at the Welt around the 8th-9th and all the 1M models there were sold out at that point

See, if you had bought a VO car you could use your car touch up paint.
