    Alpina makes some really great cars. Apart from the very early ones such as the A4,very good value too.

    I went with a friend to look at a D3 which he bought.
    Cracking car. I would have one.

    That is beautiful.

    Having had a pretty high number of beemers at my tneder age, I would have to say thats really quite special.

    Very rare, very classy, and apart from some (ahem) perhaps questionable electrical gremlins, built like tanks. The motors in those are supposed to last forever.

    Those seats with integral belts weigh something like 100 Kg. Each.

    I'd rather have a 928 but an 850 is very marginally more sensible. It's lunatic rather than certifiable

    That B12 looks amazing, I'd love to see one in person.

    D3's are good but have suspect gearboxes & clutches too those issues were solved when the D3 Bi Turbo was released which iirc is when the B3/D3 was facelifted.

    The 8 series is a dirty... dirty car.... Didn't know that Alpina got their hands on it, but I still prefer the V8 noise to a V12.

    If the 840ci wasn't so much more on insurance then its bigger brother 540i then I would have bought it instead. But there's always a 645ci/650ci to look forward to in the future ... :D

    I thought that's what you are on about wanting.

    Did you mean that black Pontiac Firebird looking thing?
