Great photos asim many thanks
Love that b5 touring colour nice to see a good mix of genres
Si your c2 is proper sleeper car that exhaust seems to protrud out quite a bit it is just the angle of the pic - a 320i badge perhaps
The red b5 is stunning also
Terry when are you going to badge her up ?

There you go, hope you enjoy the pics as much as I enjoyed the event. I think I've got every Alpina that turned up that day. Some very special metal in attendance - from the lovely E30s to the brand new B5 BTs and everything in between. And the top people that own them, all passionate about Alpina.

Thought this was noteworthy:

Roof spoiler on the new B5 BT - to direct air over the sunroof, given the 200+mph capability of the car and the airflow issues caused by the sunroof!!

And this from my D5 BT en route:

Whatever negative things that get said about the devil's fuel, a car that can do 52mpg and has 350bhp/700nm is still deeply impressive in my book.

Hap, no I didn't take it. I've got it booked in soon for a mechanical inspection and mot, then I'll use it more when I know all is okay. At the moment I just potter about locally or just enjoy looking at it Very Happy

Metrics, sorry, I should have made more effort to introduce myself to other forum members.
I think my Golf is a great package, practical but with super performance without shouting about it. And before anybody says it, yes I know, that sums up Alpinas too. I like my Golf and I love my B3s.

No worries. Great combo of cars you have there, good taste. How thirsty do you find the R in daily use?

Last time I looked it was 29mpg, mostly a short commute and local driving. Mid to high 30's is possible I think on longer(and sensible) runs.

.. there is not an ALPINA Club GB, perhaps it is not warranted? What do Sytner want if anything and what does ALPINA Germany want if anything?

For the record, theALPINAregister.com (this forum) is officially endorsed by ALPINA Gmbh and ALPINA UK, which I guess makes it the official ALPINA club in the UK
