Re: Alpina B10 touring

OP is your b12 blue and is it possible that I've seen you at the Beaconsfield services roundabout peeling left heading towards London on the a40 in the past 3 months?

Re: E46 B3 Buying Tips

I wouldnt be wasting my time with it unless its had the HG done or there was scope for movement on the price to the tune of a few K. It will def need doing if not already. id want them to let me get a compression and leakdown test done. any serious buyer would want the same so its not an unreasonabl...
