If you're interested in a 1:18 model of the M5 then read on...
After hours of fruitless scowering on the net for the ever-elusive 1:18 M5, I decided to email a company that Adam
had mentioned in a previous thread (www.everfel.com
) to see if they could possibly produce a model of the M5...
Here's both my email and the response:

So, it looks as if they would be willing to produce the model if enough people were interested... I don't know, however what sort of price such a model would cost (I couldn't see any indication of pricing on their current models from the website?)
So if I could see a show of hands for those of you that would be interested in purchasing a 1:18 M5 (and what sort of price you would be expecting to pay) - then I will get back to Evelyne with the numbers and see if I can get a quotation...
