Hello Aquiles, thanks for your accurate reply and the link to Herpa's page. But they say that the item is no longer available and that I should check wih their agents or their retailers...It's true Herpa is an excellent brand, I have a Golf II made by Herpa, I had bought it when I had the real one. But still I prefer if I could find a bigger scale. Do you have any other address? Thanks again

Hello Daniel, thanks for your reply, I am familiar with the Maisto brand but did not find my car in their collection. Do you mean that Harrod's will make the car that I want on request? If yes, how much does it cost?

no, they wont make it for you, but they could ask maisto to order it in, if they have run out or dont stock them. i bought my audi r8 from harrods, they ddnt stock them so i askd if they get one on request and they did. it will obvs cost a bt extra for tht or buy it online from maisto themselves. what car are u looking to buy and do u care if i comes ready made. i hav a few contacts with companys from my orders i could ask

In fact I just want a decent replica and I don't have a problem if it is ready made or If I have to assemble it myself. I don't even mind if it's made in acrylic but I prefer metal. I even tried at the BMW shop in Brussels but they were out of stock and they didn't even give me hope for resupply

I received a reply from Aquiles Pietri where he says: "I like the Herpa brand. http://www.herpa.de/collect/(S(4hdwug45hf1eeszsi1zehout))/detail.aspx?ProductID=021920&lang=en-GB&express=1&thumb=1" But I checked Herpa, it's a scale of 1/87 and my car is out of stock too.....

all i can say is tht i can hav a look for u and see wht i can find

Gosh, sorry about that. If you want to stay with the Herpa brand then I'd recommend looking through Ebay for your item. It may take some time but I think you'll be successful finding the exact model you're looking for. Here's a sample posting: http://cgi.ebay.com/Herpa-HO-Scale-22-BMW-Cars-Good-to-Excellent-Condition_W0QQitemZ270266136493QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item270266136493&_trkparms=72%3A552%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14
