haha, maybe Porsche figured out a way to make lightbulbs and the housing as thin as paper, and attached to the front bumpers :giggle

Just joking. It's seriously disappointing to me too, so no Le Mans GT3R racer for me...

I most certainly do not think you were lying about the price . Why would you ?

I think there could be the possibility that your source was incorrect , as the prices I mentioned in my post are from very cheap online Ebay vendors . I just find it hard to accept that it will come in at $14 or so under the Ebay selling price , even more so as AUTOart quote $85 for the car .

I hope Im wrong , as $55 would mean the following GT3R`s would also be at that price , which would be great news for everyone . I guess time will tell :cheers

I totally agree with you Luciano . The decals are a big let down from a company such as AUTOart .
I dont think it would have been too difficult for them to produce a new front bumper with the correct fittings , but they obviously took the cheap way out and put a decal kit (tampo`s most probably )on their standard GT3 R.

I would imagine the detail to be the same as on the undecorated GT3R

on the subject of GT3R's, I found that the steering on my Gt3R is kinda wacko. The steering wheel doesn't seem to turn much to the left, even when the tires are fully turned to the left... :confused

Please take a bunch of pics when it arrives, Sir Gary!!! I demand it! :giggle

Decals??? :cry :cry :cry :cry :cry

Why AUTOart, Why?

I just hope that's not the case for the upcoming Racer's Group and Alex Job racing GT3Rs; a.k.a. my 2 holy grails for this year! :scared

Do you really want this one, though? I think I'll wait a lil longer to see any improvements on the more historically succesful Racer's Group and Alex Job Racing race cars. Are you getting them?

Gian, I would only go for it because it's from Le Mans. If not for that, I wouldn't be after it. At least not with that ridiculous decal up front.

I hear ya. Did you know that AUTOart will be releasin the LM-GT winning White Lightning Racing Porsche in the 'near' future? Looks like I'll be getting 3 racing Porkers after all. :giggle

And yes, the decals used as fog lights are hideous. :scared

Maybe (we can always hope) the y do what they did with the GT3-R: first release a hurried and "kind of deffective" version and afterwards do it right? That decal really got to me, so I will wait a bit on this.
