this is NOT a BMW...



I happen to have the EXACT miniature that BMW raced 1994 JTCC in Japan. It's an E36 318is driven by Soper.



I can understand the same sponsor but what about the checker flag design?:confused:

Interesting:confused:

I would have thought the checker design would have been copywrited since the colors are for BMW's //M division.

That's just wrong. I hate to sound like *some* people, but this is just another case of people with other makes wishing they had a BMW.

If it's the same sponsor and those stripes are a part of that sponsor's design, why not ?

Vince, do you know other BMWs with the same stripes but different sponsor ?

Well, then the question is whether those stripes are copyrighted by BMW or not.

Good point...AFAIK, no other touring race cars have used those checkered design and in the SAME colour. I got a feeling that the sponsor might be recycling some old design onto the IS200.

If not, I really don't know what's the intention....:rolleyes:

However, I do know that those stripes are on the ETK, can't remember the PN though.

EDIT : PN is 51 14 80 14 542 front / 51 14 80 14 543 rear
