Re: ALPINA @ Silverstone Classic 2021 - Discussion thread

I am unable to attend on Friday, as I have just had a day from hell, and have run out of time and energy to prepare for a very early start to get to Silverstone before 1000hrs.
All being well I shall be at the hotel Friday night, and at Silverstone Saturday and Sunday.

Re: Alpina Meeting Klein-Heilig-Kreuz 11/09

Based in the Jadghof Hotel, great food and beer :D People travelling a distance normally start arriving on the Friday afternoon, good time for a chat and renew old acquaintances f...

Re: Alpina B4 4 door Grancoupe?

Would be a cool package: https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/new-2022-alpina-b4-due-462bhp-four-door-saloon This is something that Alpina should have produced years ago, would have bought one, instead I had to settle for a 435D GC :( Great car but a four door version of my B4BT would have b...

Right how about the green B5 saloon or sytners green B3 Put a deposit on the Green B5, still thinking about it. Green B3, I just do not like the modern instrument layout, overload on information on dash, at my advanced age struggle to take it all in :D The one we were talking about? Yup :D

Re: Detailer Recommendations

Hi All, I am looking for detailers that would be near/cover the Chertsey KT16 area. I normally do this myself but my shoulder is shot at the moment, had a steroid shot but still not resolved and so I do not want to make it worse! I would highly recommend Ed of Divine Detailing, 07510 651819 he is b...

Steve's old B5S

Talking to a chap today who said his brother has bought a Silver B5S.
Seems that this has a quad exhaust, although he was not aware that they normally come with twin exhausts.
Could only be Steve's.
Looks like he bought it from whoever Steve sold it to.

Now resides in West Sussex.
