The C124 and 300sl roadster are on their way 🙌

Was the R230 announced before?

Much as our friend was super-annoying with spamming his wishlist into this thread, if even half of his "predictions" became reality it would be trouble for my bank account...🙃

Lack of 190e script on the boot is a bit of a let down, so are the wheels / hub caps.

Hopefully those issues are corrected before release.
If the shape is good, I will get one.
Those others can be sorted before it hits the shops.
And I will get a Cosworth when that arrives....

I think those pictures are from the released final version

I think they have already been released. Megamo.hk's latest newsletter indicates that 3 colours are available, silver, white and black. I am keen to see more variants of the 190E.. hope to see 190E 2.3 in the horizon as the Autoart version is unattainable for me. Perhaps a more "upmarket" features like headlight wipers would be nice touch if they consider as i like that on the Autoart's 190E Senna version :)

If we are unhappy with the style of wheels on the 190E when the model is released, we should contact Norev and tell them.
I moaned to Solido about the 6 bolt front wheels on their otherwise very decent GTV6, since they should be 5 bolt as was fitted to the rears.
After the first two colours were produced, the later grey version had the issue corrected.
It would appear that companies do listen.

Available in green, too. Wheels are a bit unfortunate as is the lack of badging. Door frames look a tad too thick but passable. Still not sure about the wiper and the washer nozzles. You can see a few pics here if it in green. Overall, I like what I see :) 1/18 NOREV BENZ 190E 1984 Diecast Model Car Kids Gifts Black/White/Silver/Green | eBay

the front seat backs seem rather high! Not sure the warning triangle in the boot in properly located. It should be over to the left a bit more, not central.

Looks like the car is manual. I think Norev has made more manual Mercedes than Mercedes!

The height of the front seat’s back rests are laughable!

Agreed.
I have to admit to being more interested in a 2.3 litre Cosworth version.....
Difficult to see an easy solution to the issue.
Perhaps Germans are naturally taller. :>)
