Having read that the polybags first seen in Sweden had been found in Danish Netto stores, I thought I'd try and track some down whilst in Copenhagen.
Normally Google Maps can be relied upon to find the location of specific stores in strange cities but on this occasion it was useless. The nearest one to my hotel was apparently 2 miles away. But, I had time to kill so I walked to it, only to find when I got there it was not a 'proper' Netto but a small food-only store. Being close to the city centre by this time, I walked into town, and on the way stumbled across another small branch. Still no joy.
Later that evening, I met up with Chris, wiredforsound, in the city and told him of my failure. He then said that there was a large Netto right next to the place he was staying, just 10 minutes from the hotel! So, on our way back home, we took a short detour to this branch and arrived just before it closed at 10pm. We found three solitary, lonely, polybags left: three 30183 Little Car, and, according to a shelf stacker, no more out the back.
The windscreen in particular is terrible and to make it worse there's a white plate in the middle underneath, making it look very un-uniform.
It fills a gap in my collection, but other than for that reason, I really can't recommend you take the trouble to track this one down. It's rubbish -- no wonder it was the only one left in the store!
