Comments

Unpainted, as is often the case with Herpa: it looks of poor quality. Headlights and rear lights painted. Looks more massive than the original (body belt too high, body bottom not painted black?). Tyres too wide. The centre of the wheels should be painted black too. The black side strip that we see on the Herpa website, and on the photo of the real model, is not painted on the model delivered. The body area under the bumpers should be body colour, so white. This is deception of Herpa on the quality of the product! (but I will be answered “non contractual photo”…) BMW 3 series Herpa

History
