Lol. They are probably preparing the website with the 2 new rounds of preorders. Expect an email tomorrow or the day after where they announce the preorders.

Pre orders are now up. My suspicions were correct, the e39 M5 is listed as Titanium silver, not grey like they stated.

BMW E39 M5, Mk2 VW Golf Rally car, VW Golf G40 ordered. I didn't get any from February. If the White VW Golf R had had the Pretoria wheels on it, I'd have got one. They missed a trick there.

F**k you Photobucket.

Otto should’ve made the 5 door Golf R. I think that’s actually prettier than the 3 door.
Dream car top 5 (in random order):
McLaren F1 - Lamborghini Diablo SE30 - Ferrari F50 - Bugatti EB110 - Ferrari 550 Maranello

I'm considering getting one of the Golf's.
I have sent an e-mail to Otto pointing out your doubts about the markings.
Elsewhere there have been questions about 'budget' resin models.
I noticed a yellow tape on the steering wheel marking the centre point of the steering system.
Something that shows the attention to detail - even if it's not always accurate!   :rolleyes:

I watched the video sent with email: https://www.youtube....h?v=GzwSHpD9zZM

I think I can afford 10 euro more, with a better quality control (even if I had really a few problems, until now), and maybe a little more details!
I mean: other brands cited have so much higher prices now, that there is space for a little increase (keeping prices far from them), if matched with an overall quality improvement (like open grills, my obsession :giggle: ).
Maybe the target could be models looking like the old sealed autoart ones.

Anyway, effort appreciated!

I appreciate him explaining things. It does suck though when they tell you the number available, then say 'oh we sold those, so we're making a couple of thousand extra' that's not right.

I think that sometimes they should put out a model in two or three colours per month, not release a colour, see if it's a success then release another colour sometime down the line. Some makes and cars will always sell out.

F**k you Photobucket.
