LWB B7 No 018 in Brighton LHD

Post by Norrie » Wed Sep 05, 2018 11:58 am

Does anyone know anything about the ex Dubai B7 which is in Brighton and for sale? I have had some discussion with a chap about it. He is talking about breaking it with 68K on the clock. It is filthy in the pictures and has mould on the seats etc. pre delivery inspected 8th Sept 2004.

He is asking 5K for the engine complete, says the car is a runner.

yes by all accounts it is a genuine B7 but they (cars destined for the UAE) were sold without the Alpina vin or title. Trouble is it's a pre facelift car thats been converted to a facelift spec. And without the Alpina vin, its always going to be hard to sell that here.

Its created a decent thread on one of the FB pages and the info stated has been corroborated by a few owners of B7's in the UAE.
