Please stop making your chase vehicles with colored wheels. They look dumb.Clear also looks stupid. I have never seen a 1:1 car with green tires, rims or clear wheels. Greenlight chase diecast look stupid, whereas, the M2 with the gold trim looks awesome. Gold trim will suffice.Leave it at that.Also, please make sure everything is glued together and not flopping around in the package. Please.

No offense, but I don't see the the point of colored and clear wheels myself. It's like M2 is preying on the the chase collector's mind set knowing they will buy anything that is perceived as rare.

I buy cars that have detailed and realistic appearance.That is why I like M2,JL,AW,RC,Ertl,and some GLs.If I wanted unrealistic toys I would be spending the money on premium brands.There are plenty of $.79 cars on the pegs
For this reason I will not ever have a car with ridiculous tampos,cars without paint,or with colored wheels in my collection. Of course,this is just my personal outlook. i collect small scale models,not little kid's toys. Sorry for ranting,but you guys brought it up.LOL

The M2 chase cars that are black with gold trim are not terribly authentic for a 1:1 car but are probably my favorite chase car color traits.

Welcome to my mindset on the subject, guys. I have two M2 chase cars, both looking like standard cars with at least marginally tasteful gold trim (a VW and a '69 GTO). Cars with clear or Technicolor tires etc, I'll buy as trade bait but not for my personal collection. For instance, I had a green-tired Cougar that I got as a part of a package deal that I RAOK'ed to a friend on these boards. I know there are guys out there who like this stuff, but you can't count me among them. I also generally avoid "Raws", "Zamacs", etc, but I make the exception in the case of Auto World offerings, since these cars do manage to look pretty decent.

I agree with you guys too ! I dont like colored tires ,wheels , chassis , etc ..

I prefer the M2 Chase in black paint with gold trim , although they did some in all gold paint that was neat .

AW is doing it right at the moment with the Candy Red cars , they are stock looking .

Same with GL when they do the bodies in Green paint , ( a green interior would be an OK extra with green body .. )
