Sold it! Goodbye D3 . Replaced with a G30 530i. Such a smooth car being an 8 speed auto but the Alpina looks will be missed.

Having just done 1400 miles in France in it, I gave it a wash! Clay and machine polish to follow tomorrow.

Gave it a quick once over with a machine polisher. Had to wet sand a bird lime mark off the roof that was there when I bought the car, but that came out very nicely. Paint/lacquer is harder than other BMW's I've owned for some reason. Having just returned from a 1300 mile trip to France, it was much needed.
