There is a LS Ferrari 288 GTO on Ebay in my preferred color and base (Rosso Corsa with red base).  Neverminding the fact that Looksmart seems to have an indiscriminate number of different "limited editions" (this is listed as 1 of 149), I haven't found another seller yet with the same combination.  The only problem is the front headlights are misaligned.  The model is still factory sealed, and the seller nevertheless gave good photos in the packaging, and when asked confirmed that the lights were slightly off.

This small issue aside, it looks like a nice model that I would like to have, but this would still drive me crazy.  Does anyone have one and know whether the lights can be easily realigned?

I think so, most resin models are quite crudely put together.

A bit hard to tell from that pic, but looks like a thin blade + glue will fix that easily. (Dont hold me to that)

Sharp exacto blade, some tamiya liquid cement and tamiya tape to hold in place and you'll be good to go. But yes, that would bother me as well.
