I need opinions please regarding the Kyosho Individual dealer edition. I recently contacted a local BMW dealer and they have some instock. The asking price for it is $125CAD+tax ($145 w/tax) and this release is limited 1500 worldwide. Is it worth the asking price? :confused :feedback

Here's a pic from an Ebayer.


:cheers

Hello M3

I don't think this model has anymore detail than the standard non limited ed M3 cabrios. You are simply paying a premium for exclusivity.

If my memory serves correct KKwhung (Kelvin) and dragon_fly (Tim) both have one.

:cheers

As far as I remember, the KY 3er cab came with amber blinkers instead of this dealer's version's white blinkers and the rims are also different. The rest of the model I believe is identical. Model is a limtied edition of 1500 pcs.

If you are just looking for a 3er cab, you might as well get the standard version, which is still readily available.

If you are looking for a more unique color for the model, then I would go for this one.

For your reference, I paid about 72 euro shipped to Toronto for mine.

Also, the model pictured is a std 3er Cab, not an M3...

Thanks Kelvin for the brief insight regarding this matter. I am looking for something different, a different flaired 3series. I don't know if this price is reasonable this time around. I assume that you got yours when it was first introduced to the market, that explains the lower price tag. I'm 75% sure that I want it, but I'm still in between about the pricing.

Actually TJ, if you contact Mikel (owner of MR) off eBay, he can sell the model to you without the VAT (that's 16% off), it will be slightly cheaper, but he charges either a 5% Paypal fee or a 3% credit card fee.

Thank Kelvin. I have emailed Mikel and he wants 37Euro for the shipping plus 5% for Paypal. It comes out the same price as the dealer ones that I had inquired. It roughly comes to $140CAD, then there's that chance that the customs might charge me for the package.

Thank you Kelvin and Dragon_fly for the excellent pics! :cheers I am picking up the model this Friday afternoon along with the replacement M5. I can't wait and I found more pics from the net that sold me to it. :giggle

Gary, the wheels on this is actually the optional M-package rims. That explains why it looks so much like the one used on the M3.

I got the Individual today from the dealer. I am very satisfied with the model. Thanks again for all the help. Along with the Individual, I got the replacement M5. Finally, an M5 without any quality issues. I will have some pics up for all of you to enjoy, but it might take a while. :giggle

:cheers
