In January, I bought my wife a 1:1 B9 A4. I wanted a 1/18 version and saw the usual few long wheelbase ones from China on eBay, but not in the same color. I came across livemodelcar.com and saw that they had a Police version too. I like collecting Police cars from around the world, so I ordered it. 3 months later (today) it finally arrived! I am very impressed with the packaging and the model itself. The shipping box had reinforced corners, bubble padding inside, the model box wrapped in bubble wrap, the car wrapped down to the base of the clam shell and further wrapped to protect it from the styrofoam.

What struck me right away were the shut lines of the openings. Well done. The engine and interior detail are very impressive. For the same price as a premium resin model, I am very happy with this purchase. I just wish it did not take so long to arrive!

Bonus: They included free custom license plates. So I have the NY state plates and number from our real car :)

It's pretty cool. I looked on ebay last night after i read this thread but couldn't find one. I saw you said you got it from Live Car Model.com How where they to deal with ?

F**k you Photobucket.

Only the regular sedans are on eBay. The police car is still available on their website. I had no problems, but shipping from China took 3 months. I also ordered it on March 17th, so I am sure the global pandemic might have played a role in the long delivery. The price for the model of $99.95 plus $17.99 for international shipping was very fair imho.
