car buff in square 1 i guess
try ebay

porsche cayenne is quite common, you should be able to find it anywhere you go

radioshack has a remote control M3 lol... if i'm not mistaken i think you can get bodykits/wheels for it as well

i second the car buff or w.e its called in square one. they have a lot of models and i'm sure you could get those. The only thing might be the M3...they didn't have the e36 when i asked.

I'm late for the party also, but Mini Grid is pretty good for models too... Somewhere on Mount Pleasant IIRC. Google 'em.

prestige auto is the best model car shop in Toronto. They have everything and their prices are very cheap as well, Joe is an awesome guy to deal with, I've been a customer for years!

BMW isnt very popular in the Diecast market, mostly OLD SKOOL American cars or Exotic cars are more popular.

If you are willing to pay for it, call the BMW Dealerships

I have seen E46 models here in the US, they may be able to get them in Canada too.
