I may finally have to include a GT Spirit in 2015 with that 991.

Never lift up anything on a model using the clear parts. Never.

I also think the 991 looks fantastic, and those wheels!! I'm in love!! I'm so glad to see a 991 with those on it.

Just received my first GT Spirt model (997 Speedster) and I'm really impressed with the overall quality of it.  Real bang for the buck.  Since the M4 will be coming out, I wonder if there any plan on making the F80 M3 as well?  I'll take one in Yas Marina Blue with gold brake calipers please?

Just to be clear, it is NOT the M4. It is a 435 with the M Sport package.

They are also going to make the CLAs, but will wait until it is official.

Looking forward to 435i, but still not sure about M3. I already have regular M3 (white and red) and GTS, so another one. . . I don't know. . .

You can never have too many E92 M3 in your collection...

Yes you can. . . I mean, I really don't see a reason why I would put it in my collection except for the part I collect all BMW's. . . Except for license plates and couple of stickers it is the same as all the other M3's. . .
One car that I'd really like to see is white on black E46 with US ZHP package or regular M package. . . That would be something. . .

The CLA's are all over eBay Jon. It's official (just not from GT Spirit) who seem to have gone to sleep as I've not seen them post on here for a while :dunno:

My bad.  Well, I hope there'll be plans to make the M later on.

The CLA 45 AMG and A 45 AMG are out. They are not available through the GT Spirit site. Both are white with black and/or trim. And they have those horrid solid black windows. They are also damn expensive. Limited to 1000 pieces.

I thought they were doing 1000 pieces of these.  Is it only 100 of each?

Indeed! :yahoo: It would the the cherry on top of the cake if GT Spirit decides to make the G63 6x6 as well.

yuk, the stripes and wings make it look so tacky, if it were just the basic road car without the add ons i'd have to have one.

I know what you mean. I've got 3 E92 M3s - Safety Car, Convertible and the GTS. I'll have to think about it. There are a few carbon bits on this Spengler model and the front spoiler is slightly different. Is that enough to justify another M3...not sure!

I don't think I'll bother with the 435i. It's nice, but I only collect Ms or race cars (or classics).

The stripes and red highlights look great to me, it would look much more plain without them imo :)

I don't think it looks bad, it's just whether it's different enough to justify purchasing (if that makes sense). If I absolutely LOVED it, I'd buy it regardless. At the moment, I'm much more interested by Otto's Alpina models! :twocents:

Same with the white/stripe 1M. I already have the Valencia Orange, and didn't feel the white model was worth the ££ to buy as well.

The White 911 Speedster is out, it comes with a lid too - LE of 250, it's not cheap though.

The Blue one is available with a lid too, although why you'd spent another £100 on it is beyond me!!
