Re: Alpina number plate options

if you go via the prestigeplates link I posted above, all theirs are legal with the BS number shown if requested

Will an inspector look at the BS number? I can see them picking up a pressed metal plate as the black/silver pressed plates are only legal if fitted to cars up to certain years

Re: E34 B10 3.5/1 #7926

looks OK, cheap though which has alarm bells silently ringing.

where did you get that plaque pic? I have 2 zinnobar red B10's on my list but my e34 listings are not complete, but both have anthracite interiors but one has no reg or plaque number showing so I can't cross ref it.

Re: E30 Clocks

as Bob says, some had orange needles some didn't, if the tacho or speedo head failed they'd replace it and dependent on when and who did it, they may have not added the Alpina sticker to the new one.

But if the car started as an M42 then chances are the clocks you have are not original.

Re: B12 E38 5.7 #45 E-KAT

The one that Norrie initially posted up about, I have seen it, a few years back when it resided in Essex admittadley but I can't imagine it being that much better today. According to the then owner it wouldn't start, was very dirty, tyres all flat and all 4 would need replacing (cracked rubber etc) ...

Re: Alpina number plate options

you could try prestige plates, its a fb page though but they'll do any plate type including dealer style plates that replicate the old style plates that had the supplying dealers details on (which today apparently is no longer allowed)

Re: Going Green - Boston, Oxford and Alpina

The green is also seen on the e32 B11 and e34 B10's, classed as Alpina green by many so it goes back a while

Re: B12 E38 5.7 #45 E-KAT

it'll be interesting to see what he does, when I saw it, it needed a huge amount of work, let alone dealing with nigh on 250k's worth of miles on that drivetrain and interior.

Re: Alpina E24 side decals

excellent, so that B11, thanks for putting that info up. That was a hi spec B11, reg in Aug 89, was a diamond black car with silver interior, my details say it was an auto. But it had a 3.91S diff and had everything fitted to it complete with the exhaust manifold (which I find a little odd, but that...

Re: E46 Recall - Airbag inflater unit TAKATA

have had the recall done on my 330i, had both those sorted back in early 2019. Had it for the day. I'd say it was needed if its been flagged as being needed by BMW.

Re: Alpina E24 side decals

not sure anybody could look at the modifications as unnecessary or negatively, if that B11 had bad rot/rust/accident damage this would be the best thing. If it was taken from a 'healthy' car thats a different matter. But there are very few B11 e24's on these shores today so its nice to see even a ho...

Re: Alpina E24 side decals

Nice, so this isn't a B11 e24 but one with the mechanicals from an e32 B11? Any idea of the ID of the car that lot came from? So your very own e24 B11. I'd say wheels go silver, and the deko kit, a thin lined deko would be good but black would look a bit odd wouldn't it?

Re: B3.3 E46 keys and locks - Help!

but new locks = separate keys to the ignition, so if the OP is happy with 2 or 3 keys then thats the route to go down. Unless that is when the car is removed the locks are still there requiring a change of part number 21 with item 9!

Re: B3.3 E46 keys and locks - Help!

No lock? So you have the barrel to insert the key but no lock behind it? How odd. Have you have the door card off to confirm that? I suppose BMW could supply a lock but its going to be costly, if a new key is circa £150 then who knows what a lock assembly would be. no idea on the process though or w...

Refurbish the original if you can, the deko kit, did it have one to start with?
