Re: ALPINA Running Costs

I think anybody who actually cares about these things take very little notice of a book of stamp, unless backed up the invoices to along with them. No book but lots of receipts and invoices is just fine imo,

Re: E61 B5

A good result for Dan. It was a lovely car in great condition when I saw it at Gaydon this year irrespective of the non OEM parts fitted. This is only 1 of 3 apparently so not many to choose from really!
