Indeed! A fine day even if not blisteringly sunny. Never seen so many CSLs, E30 M3s etc in one place. Was madness.

I would also like to thank Simon and Tracey for their hard work and energy, also Norman and the Alpina regulars who make it what it is. Appreciate your efforts and the atmosphere you guys bring.

As for me I got chatted up by a charming 60 year old with a bottle of wine...we had a romantic picnic!

Went by the name of Brian :? :lol:

Another great Alpina display at Gaydon, nice to see several I had not seen before.
Hopefully everyone had a better journey home than mine.

Thanks to Simon and Tracey for all the hard work.
A lot off effort went into the 100 photo shoot look forward to seeing the results, it was a long wait :?

Chatted to, not chatted up Chris :wink: , thanks for the Baklava.

Thanks also for knocking a few years off :lol:

What a great day.. :yahoo:

Thanks go out to everyone that turned up today to make yet another exellent display of ALPINAs.

I think I managed to speak to most but sorry if I missed anyone.

Big thank you to Brian E for being photographer for the day.. Look forward to seeing some of the pics. We will get Neil to post them all up at some point.

Chris, enjoyed the chat and for giving my son some complements about his car, it means a lot to him. He spends a lot of time trying to keep what is a daily ride in tip top condition and to be fair better than some of the cars that where in the show & shine. He did enter the car but got no rewards for all his hard work. I think the people that judge show & shine should ask questions and take in to consideration whether a car has been trailered or barely used compared to a car that does 20k miles a year.

Look forward to seeing some of you soon, hopefully later in the year if we have a Sytner meet.

I must also say a thank you to Simon and Tracey who put in the time and effort into all our Alpina meetings.

Spectacular photo!

It was indeed a good event and was great to see such diversity of ALPINAs. Nice also to chat to the B4 owner (alipino?) about his great car. Looking forward to returning to the ALPINA fold one day.
