A New Toy

A new toy, literally! I think I should call it Mini-Me. My wife thinks I'm a dork but its nearly an exact match! Look at the wheels!

The roof is fully operable and retracts just like the real thing (under hand power tho). Doors and hood open, steering wheel works.

Cripes I thought you guys knew about this, I've had mine since Christmas (sorry no religion) '07 in the 'car" room. I guess I should have posted. My wife got it for me, mine came w/ a Brabus 6.1S tuner kit like Dan has on his real car that I've not installed yet.. From the same manufacturer "Auto Pro Shop". Pics to follow later.

tricky - where did you get yours? My car is also black and would prefer the black over the blue I find online regularly.

I only have the '85 Fiero GT, never found a 1:18 of the fastback Fiero GT from 86-88.

I have my X1/9, a Porsche Carrera GT that scares the **** out of people because it looks like normal 1:18 scale car but is actually remote control. I make it zoom across the library book shelf and startle them.

However, I have two SLK's. One is red with top up, Maitso, red seats, and color is acurate. 5 spoke SLK280 rims and 4-cylinder engine. I just got the Welly SLK350, that is in the red of my Fiero, no my SLK, more details but 3rd brake like is popping out a bit and dumb person put silver lock dot on passengerside under door handle because they could not find it on that side. Go figure. It's top is down in the trunk, and it has a black interior. It has the 5 spokes from the C class.

See the Welly here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190253629212&ssPageNam e=ADME:X:AAQ:US:1123

Please, can I get a damn SLK model with the 10 spoke wheels?

I want a red one with the top that goes up and down, and does not have the AMG kit or 5 spoke wheels. It that too much to ask? Maybe even the rear spoiler?

What gets me too is they both have airscarf, nav, etc., but dial climate control. Most who get airscarf and nav get the digital climate controls.

Now I have to find my chineese rip off remote controlled car in mars red. Lost the charger. It is imilar to these, but different symbol on the front, and it has 10 spoke rims, not these 5 spokes. GASP! It is wickedly fast tho, my granddaugter already broke the tail pipe off of it.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Mercedes-SLK-300...3A1%7C294%3A50

Mine has lights on rims too, but they don't flash they turn on when car is in motion.

This one the top goes up and down too:

That looks like the closest to a silver version, but I can't find any pictures on the web to tell whether it looks decent.

This page has silver, blue, and black models for SLK, SLK55, SLK350:
