    Not sure if I may be the only one around to get excited over $1.00 mass-produced diecast models, but this 1M from Matchbox will be part of a 2016 "Best of the World" series (looks like there will be another BMW police motorcycle as well). Great color and deco, unfortunately MB has stuck the wrong wheels on it - I might feel compelled to tackle a wheel swap just to make it look right. Believe it or not, that's a thing, there are many who 'mod' these in various ways, Hot Wheels even makes varieties of wheel/tire sets for retrofitting.

    If you're puzzled the 1M is labeled M1, BMW apparently required the labeling change from Matchbox for some unfathomable reason.
