That looks like a Japanese import to me, especially that extra screen, with a Lavalina interior.
My guess would be it is this one:

It does look odd for sure, but maybe they're colours which are hard to accurately photograph :?:

Also a shame about all the extra "tech" that has been nailed to the dashboard. :?

Lights are definitely non-standard, it should have ambers and un-tinted rear lights as per the images on the Archive I posted earlier

That looks nice. Little work needed to get it looking good.
The stripes are ace. I might consider these for mine.
The interior is very nice.

Think you're being very generous Bob. Looking around the interior the colour contrast is there throughout.

Wonder if that interior is from another Alpina car, as I doubt it would have left Buchloe with that mismatch. Imagine all the plastic trim and carpets in black, with the seats, centre tunnel and door card inserts with that Lavalina hide. Would look so much better.
