I understand, But David's too old now to be a convincing "Micheal" and I'm not sure whether he would work that well as a "Devon" type character?. Devon's uptight Englishness was what made him cool, David hasn't got that persona it just wouldn't be the same. I think a new cast is the way to go, Base...

the marks are only on the passenger front rim, when I cleaned on this car. I scrubbed this marks on the rim to death with a wash cloth and water and soap it didnt even fade. its barely noticeable, but it bugs me. Great Idea on the wax it made both models look brand new almost as good as the 1/18. Ex...

To me we dont need to go back to the 80's I did not like Starsky and Hutch's approach to film. Can you imagine Ben Stiller as Michael Knight with the voice of KITT being Owen Wilson????? yuckkkk To me bring in a young unknown, william daniels back as kitt with all the memories of the 80's 90's.

Thanks pewter and hondasir, I took it apart tonight, those tabs are tricky I was so afraid I was gonna break it. I did all the things you said it took me almost 2 hours but it is clean. After enough scrubbing on the windows they are clear. I guess this was in a smokers house or somthing. All the dir...

The thing that bugged me was. Why not just tell KITT to turboboost instead of using the button. Use the button for emergency use only. Any time you would see KITT use his t-tops. One time they were in hot pursuit and the t-top was activated and it just moved up like the 200 mph he was hitting would ...

Is there anyway I can make these look better?? Both of the doors work but when I close them they push all the way in. Is there anyway to fix...

Nice one. But I still think that the original Kitt is the best. I agree, Do the original 82 transam or make a 2000-2002 transam, (I have seen a few on here that the members made and they were kickass" maybe if you move from pontiac make it a black corvette just to show it as a differant time period...

I have searched this site to see if this thread was already done, but I could not find it. I have been seeing this car on ebay and never have won it ( I lose it by 40.00-50.00). I would send the sellers questions about the car mainly the interior. And don't get replies or they say I don't know(like ...

Hi all, I'm new here and just got the car myself from diecastmuscle. I have to say I'm really impressed overall, but the front end really bugs me. It hardly slopes down at all, and is way too short and high! The car looks good from above, but from ground level it's kinda goofy. If you look back in ...

Judging by the pics, I would have to agree ertl's looks superior. They just need to release the damned thing here in the United States. Enough with the waiting. I have been waiting for this since 1982 LOL.

Take it for what it is worth

I emailed diecastmusclecars.com who I have had a preorder for the 1/18 K.I.T.T. from since august. He sent me an email today stating that ertl has not released a update of when it will come out the last thing he heard from them was December. He stated he hopes it's before Christmas.
