If this had of been for sale when I traded my D3BT!!! Laughing


It never was 'for sale'....it was 'Ade, do you want it, or no? If not I'm keeping' He didn't 'need' to sell but it was always going to be offered to me if he sold since the day he bought it. Dropped just nicely for us as a garage space had recently become free and I was looking for 'interesting' to carry 4 people in comfort. I did look at E90 M3's but just couldn't do it.....


I'm thinking of the one Classic Heroes sold a year or so ago then!

Fair play to be offered something as rare as that! Would love to have another Alpina, and at the time if a B5/B6 had of been available i'd of gone for it rather than the M5...

Yes, I remember a grey B3 Biturbo being sold fairly recently. Trouble is the turbocharger waste gates and fuel pump are a guaranteed PITA. On the S, they can be too, but less common. I was talking to a low miles S owner very recently with knackered waste gates....about 30k only, too.

There is something about those B5/6's isn't there? Cool The M5 is a lovely thing, though.

I debated changing to a B5, but couldnt find an S model at the time

Decided to hold onto the M5....



...and traded it in for a brand new F06 640d

I'm waiting for an F01 B7BT or something equally as mad to turn up for sale so I can trade in "jus an ole diesel"

Previous, hap. Useful keeping a number! We have a variety of sytner and Porsche plates to choose from with either reg Exclamation

I'll take a peek at your thread though, as I'm on my last decent rear plate with the sytner logo on it.

Thanks for heads-up, Ali. I'll drop him a message when mine get tatty.
I hadn't realised the business had changed hands.

Yes, I remember his E24!
He wasn’t an admin back in the very early days when i was, back before the phpBB forum, but he’s was always a regular.
