It's screwed to the base.

I think the front screw may be a bit tighter then the rear.

Its got good detail though.. I kinda lean more twoards resin casts because they have finer sharper detail than diecast.. But still haven't found one for the E39 sedan I really like for their price.. The Otto Mobile M5 is great looking.. Poor choice of exterior color but good detail.. I've only ever seen it in some weird powder blue lol.

Also your background is throwing off my eyes. Is that black or Oxford green? I wanna paint my 528i oxford green.
