Diecast car quality advice sought

To the knowledgeable collectors out there can you shed some light which manufactures are better than others. I’m looking at Minichamps, Autoart, Otto etc.... I spotted Norev today which I hadn’t heard of but it may just be me. I was looking at Escort, Sierra & Sapphire Cosworths in 1/18 scale so before the research starts I’d like some education.

There are many different makes of 1:18 models, all are different.
Autoart usually good detail inside and out, made of diecast, Sierra Cosworths will be £150 plus
Otto are a newer maker, all of their models sell out pretty quick tbh, Sapphire Cosworths will cost £200 plus
UT Models do a good range of Escort Cosworths, these range from £50 upwards
Minicamps are slightly cheaper than Autoart and detail isn't as good, prices are £75 upwards.
Norev do a good range of models and they start around £50
Biante are also very good for RS500s, but now very pricey.
Apex models are a budget version of Biante, not as heavy tho

Ebay is the best place to source models but worth researching all models well.
Ive been collecting for 15 years, all 1:18 Fords.
1 lot of my cabinets is below, every model is different

Thanks Jason,

I think I read somewhere yesterday that on Otto nothing opens, so are they just a 3D model as such?
