I just bought a sweet diecast version of my car. Color is not exactly right, looks more like "Magic" Blue than "Caspian" Blue, but it has my wheels and same interior color. $50.00 on ebay, and I am psyched.

Thats cool. My wife got me one of "our" A4. The model was mine, the car was hers.

LOL... my wife got me the silver V60 model 1:43, then painted it with rebel blue from the dealer, leaving the mirrors and trim silver of course. ;)

My S60 model is orange, I have debated painting it Saville Grey, like my old car. My Saab models are all the correct color (black, lol)

Haha, I love it. I picked up a Power Blue with black interior and Bors die cast model to match my V60 I bought last year. I just wish there was a 1/18 scale version to match the 1/18 scale 122S and C70 models on my office desk.

I just bought the V60 Polestar model. It matches my car's color already so I'm happy.

haha... snob! ;)
For a $60k car I'm getting the diecast model. ;) Heh, they should have sent those free to all 15/15.5 owners as a thank you.

And I also bought my STCC and V8 supercar but can't take them on track though. One can wish...

You have the radio controlled version on your gift wish list? ;)
My gift wish list is a 911 GT3 RS or 918 for real tracking fun. Not going to happen unless I win a lottery. ;)

In the mean time I'll enjoy looking at my 1:43 race cars on my work desk. Hah!

A year later...

Haha, I love it. I picked up a Power Blue with black interior and Bors die cast model to match my V60 I bought last year. I just wish there was a 1/18 scale version to match the 1/18 scale 122S and C70 models on my office desk.
Well then, almost a year later (digging this thread up since the search didn't reveal any similar ones, hehe) and I found a 1/18 scale V60 in exactly the color scheme I was looking for. In memoriam of the ol' Power Blue w/ Bors I parted with earlier this month, I bought a 1/18 copy through an eBay vendor in China a week and a half ago. Also picked up a 1/18 of the current generation XC60 in white. Unfortunately black wasn't a color option (only white or java) so it doesn't match my real one.

They arrived today, and being a slow afternoon in the office I took some pics with the iPhone.









I posted more of the XC60 in the XC60 forum here.

Both are of excellent quality and detail inside and out. All 4 doors open, the mirrors fold in, and the back seat even folds down. Great additions to my 1/18 scale collection of cars I have/had in real life. :thumbup:
