An excellent day was had and the weather was fantastic.

It was great to meet you all. A special big thanks to Phil of CPC, who clearly knows his Alpina's inside out. Thanks to Charles for organising.
Fantastic machines, spanning from vintage to the modern day. I clearly need to rob a bank!

@Hap - Thanks. Phil was quite complementary about my car. I always knews that the coil overs were a comprimise. Now i have to save for a suspension re-build.

Pictures are uploading as we speak.

All of the above; everyone there was a proper enthusiast happy to chat about any Alpina of any age and any type - but not that dreadful battleship grey M4 :wink:

Thanks to Charles and Phil for organising and hosting.

Edit to add; I came away not being able to decide which seats were the most stunning to look at or sit in... either the Tartan stitched leather in the B5 Edition 50, or the Alpina striped Scheel seats in the E28 B9 3.5 - both cars induced a huge amount of envy from me - you both very lucky owners indeed.

Apologies for lowering the tone of the meet with my awful grey M4 Kevin. Great to see all the proper cars though and had a eye opening ride in the edition 50. The want is strong!

Thanks for organising Charles and Phil for hosting. Much prefer these low key events where you can have a good chat about cars and not worry if your getting the most out of the parking or entrance fee!! Great selection and awesome to see a vast range of Pinas with humble owners. Nice to meet you all and your cars are all special in their own way.

Sorry for the late response!!

Excellent day with some fellow "Alpina Nerds"!!!

Many thanks to Phil for hosting (and letting me in on the engine work done to my B10 previously).

Also, thanks to Charles for making the effort to sort - I know these things aren't easy to get together - much appreciated - looking forwards to next years!!

Good to see you all and lets hope that we can get the road trip discussed - sooner rather than later!!
