Have respect for Alpina, they do a lot more than slap some badges on and a set of wheels. They rework a lot more than mild changes to the engine. I am not sure why they are considered a "manufacture" over any other firm that offers complete overhauls of cars, like Hartage or AC or any of a list of others, but Alpina has a long history of completely overhauling BMW's, they have some kick ass models to their credit.
