(Got the idea from this fantastic intro to the Hino Profia)
Up until now, the closest thing to a decent 1/64 model of the E30 M3 was the Kyosho casting. It is a brilliant casting in isolation, but there is one turn-off. It may have gone unnoticed if it was some other brand, but Kyosho could definitely have done better; they muddled up the front grille and headlamps.

This is where the MiniGT's replica really shines. The much awaited (and delayed) M3 has finally begun flowing into stores, and for the price, it really offers good value.
Those separate lights and grille are perfect, and immediately establish the Mini GT casting as a very potent contender.
Move over to the sides, and there are no major concerns here as well. The wheels have BMW badging, but the positioning has been messed up at places. Regardless, those wheels look pretty decent.
Move over to the rear, and it does not disappoint. The Kyosho has a cleaner casting with a better rear end, but the overall package is not better than the Mini GT.
It is not without faults, however. The casting feels a bit off at places. However, the overall package is hard to pass.
The left feels a bit too hunkered down.
Another decent attempt by Mini GT.
Thanks for stopping by!
