F30 1:18 model review

Just got this off ebay, cost 87 shipped.

Appears to be a BSM 335 Sportline with beige or everest gray interior, black highlight bar, brushed alum trim.
Some details:
- PDC, but no parking cameras
- Wipers a little high
- automatic transmission
- doors and hood open, trunk does not
- grey seats have red "stitching"
- quality good

I've been tossing around buying this. Thanks for doing a review. Would seem silly to non car people but helpful to me. Would you recommend buying it?

Yes, Autoart. I am organizing the collection in the basement as we speak. Final count of Autoarts in the box is 144 lol.

There are still about 10-15 of them you can snag for under $30, but older models. Great way to get into the hobby.

The company UT pre-dates Autoart, but it's the same company. UT did a lot of early BMW's, I have lots of Z3 cars and E36 M3's.

I also like Hotwheels Elite, they can be snagged for $45 on Amazon and are 90% Ferrari.

Ertl Authentics/Precision 100 are very nice and detailed and feature American cars. Same for Highway 61. I have snagged quite a few for under $30.

Kyosho is a great brand for japanese sports cars, plenty of BMW's too.
