In response to an earlier post, Minichamps would probably charge $239.99 for the model without the Stig! lol. To think this is licensed, what fool signed off on that one?

I'm sorry to hear that you were so let down by the model. If I were you, I'd put that thing on eBay while they're still fetching good prices. IMO, the price will probably nose dive in a short period of time once people start finding out more about the model.

Minichamps won't last long with the way things are going IMO. The only minichamps I'm after are a few BMW's produced when they still had respectable standards.

Agreed. However, I'm a fan of TG, so I'll probably keep it for now. Who knows, it might get rare in the future...
Also, CK-Modelcars has the non-TG version in stock, listed for 180 Euros  :omg:
I have both their M3(E92) GT2 racers, those are pretty fantastic. Apart from those and some Bentleys, I can't think of any other recent release that was properly good.

I think the CF print would be the main reason why I would buy the PMA over the AUTOart, but like you said, the price/quality ration just isn't worth it. Would get the AUTOart version for sure.
Brian's Recent Haul(s):

1/18 Kyosho Audi R8 GT
1/18 Minichamps Porsche Boxster S
1/18 Kyosho Ferrari 250 GTO

Agreed. It was the CF finish that won me over initially, but now I might have to find ways to get rid of this model to raise funds for the AUTOart version.

I just noticed the direction of the carbon weave on this model is completely wrong. On the real car the carbon weave meet at the center line of the car, however Minichamps just apply the carbon weave across the entire body. I think this is a very significant error by Minichamps and it is shocking to see how they can produce models like this and charge such a high price for them.

Yeah, it's a complete mess... It's sad where Minichamps are going... It may be a bit too far but I'll say it, this model deserves a price tag of a regular HotWheels or something... The CF may be good but it's wrong and apart from the headlights almost everything else screams made on a budget... I usually like "find the differences" games but this is way, way too easy. Here are some great pics of the actual car for anyone who wants to give it a bash: http://www.autoblog....l/#photo-187497

A $240 "pile of crap"?
All I can say is - thank God there are people on here with a lot more money than me that are willing to post photos and be honest about the money they've blown in buying these models!

No more than $100 for a Minichamps model.
There are many R/C cars with much better details.
