Mein Auto: 2012 335i - Mineral White
Wanted: Miniature F30 Model

Hi Fellow F30 lovers.

Well my F30 335i starts production next Monday and in one of many sleepless nights waiting for the magical day to arrive when I can drive it home from the dealership, I got to thinking about how nice it would be to have a miniature version sittong on my desk so when Im not actually driving it, I can be thinking about driving it.

I took a look at www.bmw-shop.com and there didnt seem to be an F30 available yet. Just wanted to know if anyone knows:

a: Where you can get one, if anywhere makes tehm yet
b: Typically how long after the release of a new model to the miniatures get released.

Cheers!

There are a couple available on Ebay. Looks like dealerships were each given a few.

Thanks - Yeah I found one on ebay that was a dealer issue one - comes with "BMW 3 Series" and a logo on the base...

I did find the same model available on a website in Europe - only available in white...

The boot and hood open, has a sunroof and black interior. mounted on a stand.

Is this the 1:18, 1:43 or 1:87 version you are looking for?

Size and detail.

1:43 has no opening parts and is a bit bigger than a Matchbox Car.

1:18 will have all opening parts and is about 9"-10" long.

The F30 is not made by Kyosho, it's made by Paragon. Kyosho is higher quality and makes a lot of other dealer models though.
