First of four to update this thread with.....the HotWheels Elite Aston Martin DB10 from the James Bond film Spectre.

It's a nice enough model but half the quality of a GT Spirit for double the money!

That is indeed nice but the price had me thinking too. I'll wait for the 1:43.

Next up is the heavyweight (literally) GT Spirit Bentley Bentayga. Not a car I'm a great fan of, but rather like the model.

Not a fan of the 1:1 either BUT have to admit this 1:18 looks pretty good considering.

Thanks Alastair.....it's a great model, and less than half the price of the Kyosho and Dealer Editions.

Shape of the 4-series looks great... excellent model too. As for the colour, hmm. At least it will be easy to find in a crowded car park. :lol:

The Dimma pug is a stunner , the DB10 from Spectre is gorgeous and Ive always liked the Bentayga .

BMW`s leave me cold , but the colour on the M4 is stunning

Thanks Tom. The model is far better than the poor Paragon Dealer Editions, which also managed to get the colour wrong.

Thanks Gary.....particularly like the Dimma, though wish they had done it in the Miami Blue with a cream interior.

Bentley is a no from me, it falls in the same camp as the BMW X5 and X6. The M4 looks great, even in that colour. The RS200 is just cool and everyone knows that :lol:
