Not a happy Alpina owner. :( :cry:

This week seen three standard E36s with Alpina wheel. Minutes from where I live :cry:

Who cares as I have the real thing :D

B10-165,

Did you see the exhausts? The real things are much BIGGER than the BMW standard twin exhaust pipes.

I will have to pass the buck on the silver D3 being parked in a disabled bay onto my missus.

She was allocated that space at BP as she is pregnant...honest guv.

Wish you had waited a day to take the photo, I cleaned it that night!!!

Initially the little smartie tube exhaust, then I looked in to see no plaque and bmw dials.

They had gone to a lot of trouble to copy the B10 even down to the Alpina steering wheel and gearstick.

I checked on the DVLA to be 100% and found it was a 525 Auto or something.
