I got this car because I still haven't been able to find the ACTION 1:18 version of this car. I first saw it in Domin8's photos over a year ago. The livery (for me) is to die for. So as a "temporary fix", I bought a Minichamps 1:43. For the money, it's not a bad model but I'm not so crazy about the quality of the wheels. Specifically, the spokes aren't as smooth and crisp as I would expect them to be. In contrast, Minichamps's 1:43 McLaren F1 GTR "Yellow Corn" spokes are made much better.

(It looks like I better re-adhere the decal on the underside of the rear wing back on :giggle )

I got mine for $15. Not a bad price for a car that's not so easy to find. Other Opel DTM livery seem to be a tad more expensive. They don't pop up on eBay all that frequently either. :cry
