In that case, thanks for the sarcasm. I felt polite enough to offer my help after seeing that another guy was looking for a W124 E-Class to match his 300 CE..

You're welcome. For the record, you opened yourself up when you said you were "very knowledgeable of your sources". Gotta be careful saying things like that on a public forum, especially when you dig up an old thread just to say that. There is always somebody like me around.

Whoa whoa whoa now...I did not ressurect an old thread just to say that. It was only 4 spaces down from the most recently modified thread. Please don't lecture me on not bringing back old threads. Iknow better from other forum message boards...

And if I remember correctly, it was 79Mercy who brought back that thread...not me...so don't start accusing me of bringing back old threads.

Question Silver W210 E320 wanted

Hi Chinny,

Nice collection you have man, congrats!

I'm a collector too, but I am nowhere near you. I collect mostly sports and imports, I don't think any of them are diecasts, and I have no idea what ratio these are if compared to the actual cars.

Where would you suggest I look for a actual diecast copy of mine? Also, what is your critical opinion of the models we can buy from Mercedes?

Thanks,

Musikmann

Try IDCOW.COM, www.exoticar.com, Scale18 - 1/18 Scale Diecast Cars - Home, DiecastMuscle.com.

Sunstar makes the best 1/18 W210 E-class. They have an E320 only i believe, but you can get it in silver.
Here's one from eBay. eBay: Mint Diecast Car 1:18 '98 Silver Mercedes-Benz E320 (item 220069068534 end time Jan-13-07 20:43:54 PST)

In all honesty, models you get from MB Dealers are wayyyy overpriced IMO. The only common companies I've seen that work with MB and official sponsering are Maisto, Kyosho, Minichamps aka Paul's Model Art, and just recently, AutoArt with the W221 S-Class. All those models you are sure to find on a site selling only diecast models and even ebay.

The only W210 E-Class I have is an Anson E420 Avantgarde Estate, I think 1997. It's old, and has been through the weathering of my young childhood...in other words, it's a wreck now lol.
