Crazy prices AUTOart models

Post by 635sharknose » Wed May 05, 2021 6:33 pm

Have you guys seen the prices of AUTOart's scale models?
I bought 2 of them 10 years ago, an E28 M5 and a M635CSi, they did cost € 80.00 new.
Prices are now through the roof, see link below, ridiculous :-k

Wow, now that is crazy #-o

I too bought one years ago to match the green shark, albeit a Euro model :-"

Think I paid something like $40 on eBay BIN price [-(

But hey, only $4 extra for a custom plate :roll:

I recently bought an AUTOart E36 M3 that was a dealer's display model. The eBay seller thought the original box was sufficient protection to ship it from Great Britain to Alabama. :evil: It arrived with both mirrors knocked off, the left taillight missing, and the diffuser also missing. I display it so the missing pieces aren't visible, and I reattached the mirrors. It's still a beautiful model. I paid just under......well, I won't say, but it was way under current prices. I think it was worth it, even with the damage.

These models are excellent, nice that the trunk and bonnet can be opened.
But the current prices seem to be a bit to high for me...

Sorry to see that yours damaged! :evil:
