Paragon BMW F10 M5 DE

Post by Gavin » Wed Mar 19, 2014 3:45 pm

I found this Dealer Edition in Monte Carlo Blue for $80 shipped off Amazon. This model really suprised me, as in person, it is excellent. I don't think this model is any worse than my Kyosho E60 M5. The wheels aren't my favorite & I'd love to get some style 343M rims, though they do look a lot better in person, than in pics.

(full disclosure...I did slightly lower the rear to make it more even, as stock it has a hot rod stance)

I've been putting of the latest M's from Paragon because I'm just not sold on the overall quality. You mention is on par with Kyosho, really? Is this one of those models that just doesn't photography well? TIA.

it doesn't photograph well at all. I was really impressed with it. I know weight shouldn't factor into it, but it is a heavy mother. I think it is absolutely on par with Kyosho's BMW's (not to the level of say, their Ferrari GTO).

That looks SO much better.

Those are Kyosho M6 rims, right? I've heard from various collectors that the wheel swap isn't as easy as on Kyosho's.
