Scale model e46 convertible '04+
 
I'm having trouble finding a die cast scale model of my car, in any scale. I've looked at dealers, vendors at auto shows, websites... I can't find a convertible (or coupe) model that has the new facelifted front end. Has anybody seen one? I hope someone comes out with one before the e90 eclipses everything.

I've run into this exact problem (I like to get models of all my vehicals) - well not exact - I'm looking for a 330 sedan - thats all - nothing fancy....I think there are 325s/328s around (though not easy to find). BMW dealers actually have a booklet with a pretty extensive list. But haven't really seen anything (there or elsewhere) with e46 330....argh

My experience as well. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't find any facelifted E46 models. Even the first-gen are becoming harder to find - if I were you I'd rush to get a 328 model while you still can.

I think the dealer can order those in 1/43 and maybe even 1/87.

I found an '01 M3 vert in 1:18 scale. It's a high quality replica. It's blue with gray interior and the interior dash trim is off color, but otherwise it's a damn nice looking replica even if it is an '01.

I'll post a link to the site once I get home this evening and can look it up.

Edit: They have numerous other e46 replicas and may very well have a post facelift model. There are more there than I have ever seen anywhere else.

Unfortunately the facelift model is not available.

AFAIK, there have never been facelift scale models at all.

You are correct. They have an '03 M3 at this site, but those aren't facelifted. It's still a good site and they have rellay nicely detailed models.

Yes, I got the '01 M3 vert from them, which is the closest thing I have been able to find to my car. It's blue, but that's okay. It was shipped the day after I ordered it.

I'm currently exchanging emails with the following 2 dealers about expanding my collection of current and past model diecast BMWs. They may be able to help:

Michael Lenhardt, www.minibimmers.com
Michael J. Izor, www.babybimmers.com

You can get their email addresses off their websites. I'm wary about posting them here due to spam email harvesters.

As previously mentioned, I don't recall ever seeing a post face-lift coupe or convertible.

i give up finding. There is just no facelifted model available out there.

Instead, I got a Lambo Gallarado, an Enzo, a Z3 and a 911GT2. :)
