I normally buy them from BMW directly, but most of the time, BMW order boring colours from the model manufacturer's like black's and blue for their models.
Normally, if you wait a few months later, the model manufacturer (Kyosho) will release their version for sale to the general public and offer better colours like Silverstone Silver, Melbourne Red, etc.

I tend to always buy a dealer version and then the general sale version a few months later once released, depending on the colour.

The Alpine White M3 in the first pic was bought from a BMW dealer, and unfortunately has long been sold out for a few years
So much so, that it's very rare and sells for around 150 on ebay. (I bought it for around 45 i think). I just had a quick look on ebay now and could not find any.

(There is a similar BMW M3 Alpine White model with the same silver wheels made by a manufacturer called Mondo Motors for around 30, but it is of very poor quality so stay away from that).

The E93 M3 convertible in Alpine White is still available on ebay for around 76 if that's any use.

Kyosho did also release a 1/18 Alpine White E92 M3 earlier this year (and also in Silverstone Silver), but the only difference with that is that it came with black wheels, as opposed to the silver wheels that came on the dealer edition in the first pic.
Hopefully, you can see the difference here with the wheel:

Black wheels:



Silver wheels as per first pic:



I found a 1/18 Alpine White M3 with the black wheels on ebay for around 100 from Germany; it seems that there are not many of these around too!

Let me know if you need any help

Yes the E63 M6 is much more widely available than the E92 Alpine White M3.

There are a number of colour's available. The one in my post above is Interlagos Blue, which was a dealer edition colour. There's none available at BMW or eBay UK, but there is one available on eBay Germany for 55 inc shipping.

The non dealer edition colours that are still available are (and you can buy from the UK) Sepang Bronze for 50 inc postage.

Silverstone silver is also available for 57.49 inc postage.

Just to let you know that the dealer edition Interlagos Blue is a little inaccurate as the front lights were not made correctly. Kyosho made them all silver, so you cannot see the angel eyes. This error was fixed on the non dealer edition models, as my grey one below shows:

Hi Paul,

It is available here for 60.99 inc p+p.

Mine is a dealer edition, and I've had a quick look and it seems that it's no longer available from BMW. The only colour they have is stratus grey for 59 Euros, (which I have also), but the black looks way better!

Normally, I would suggest a couple of online diecast retailer's, but I am not too sure in the USA
I normally get mine from my local BMW dealer.

You could try either your local BMW dealer, for 'dealer edition' models, (although they will only tend to stock models of the current line up of cars and dealer editions do not have the best colour choices), or the best and most vast selection of models would be on eBay, where you can get the 'hobby edition' models.
