Notice the changs to newest blk f355 spider 1:18

Has anyone noticed that with there newest blk F355 spider , mattel either got so cheap or stupid with this new release .

They left off the F355 spider logo's on dash and upper rear bumper.

And left off the round orange fender signal light or rectangular orange single light . ( hotwheel has used both styles of side fender signal lights.) And left off the Red rectgular single light matching of side of rear bumper .

They changed the rims from chrome look to painted silver, either version is nice. They did reduce the center cap decal down more accurate and it's now a decal like the front hood ferrari emblem, not painted on emblems.

Gone are the blk dotted drilled rotors.

But worse now where the door hinges arms meet the dash ends , they now HACK out hidous / ugly sloppy notches. What was wrong with they way they were always done before. This ne hack job does not add anything to the cars doors function etc.

Anyone with anything different then this on there car ???

There's a real exact version of this on ebay now 170449076283, that shows F355 spider on rear but only F355 on dash not F355 spider , rims match these new diecast silver painted ones and you dot see any drilled rotors..Just how accurate this real car as be done ??? as seen in 1st 4 photo's ....Diecast seen in last 3 photo's.
