Now living in East Europe from Oz, I'm in the market & wondering who has experience buying factory direct, new and/or pre-owned. It's GOT to be the ultimate? And yes, I see their site of 'pre-owned' a mite above the general market, so what should I expect?

So, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly (if any) please.

Hi,
Looking at the pre-owned section on the Alpina site, I don't think this means buying from Alpina direct. They are simply advertising cars for sale and giving dealer contacts.

This one amused me. Would you buy a car from these people? Laughing

Well known German dealer Laughing

I know German Alpina prices are silly, but nearly 18K euros for a B3 3.3 is bonkers Confused

OK, I did wonder about them selling 2nd hand stuff, it aint their line, I can't understand why cars are even listed on the site... and YEP! Prices are CRAZY.

I once had a butcher with a name like that but at least his started with "K". Housewives didn't want to go there! Every time I see a Mitsabishi "Pajero" I laugh be head off, too. Spanish for mastabater.

Couple years ago in Oz I was dawdling along the highway waiting to pass 3 cars when a cop car took risks & passed all but the front car, which they pulled over. As I went past the kid driving was getting out, but what a beautiful 4-letter word nicely showing in brilliant thick white letters across the back window. Looked like it was computer cut too! Neat as a pin & as large as he could get it.
I wonder what the charge would be? If he didn't utter the word he couldn't be done for swearing, surely? It did look good, though Twisted Evil
