Very clean! Try and get some updated pictures with the coilovers.

I've always wanted one of the Alpina motors

thanks man

i must admit that i sometimes want a new wheel set up. a little bit agressive, 19" bbs LM or sum, but taking the alpina wheels from an alpina is somehow just not right

new pics. when i bought the car back (sold it 08 bought it back 2012) the previus owner had painted the wheels white and installed coil overs.

i cant say the white wheels are my thing, and i do not intent to keep them like this, but i did want to see how it would look,






interior, this car is truly loaded,





one pic from the parking lot

thank you

no i must admit that i really do like this one, it comes from alpina with built/stroked US s52 block w/alpina head and cams, alpina intake and exhaust manifolds, exhaust and suspension.
the auto has a alpina converter,ratios. valve body and computer. shift buttons on the steering wheel,alpina diff ratios, purple 300kmh/180mph speedo.

its no m3, but its a really complete package, the ballance between the motor/trans and suspension is superb (i.m.o)

this example has bin really lucky with owners and has bin taken good care of,
