Re: G30 D5 S ALLRAD #009

It is just the adaptive drive and rear wheel steering that are no longer available - the others are options that were on the car and are still available, I just worded it badly!

Re: G30 D5 S ALLRAD #009

I was the original owner of #009 - sold it to UberGT (good chaps) Sept 3rd 2019 for £37.5k at just under 30k miles. I didn’t have a single private enquiry! Sytner had 4 used D5 saloons for sale at the time as I recall and wouldn’t give me a price at all. The advert would rather put me off - it isn’t...

Re: New Member - F10 D5 BiTurbo #156 (Alpina Green)

They’re great pictures of a cracking looking car Thom - #makegreengreatagain (my son follows it on Instagram). I was looking at the pictures of the cars at the Sandtoft meet last weekend and comparing the F11 and G31 - the F series just haven’t aged at all (saloon and estate) - they just look differ...

Re: Phytonic blue or Tanzanite II

Excellent - another D5 ordered! Picture of my embossed headrests on the ivory nappa below - just for info - for £430 I would bin these and have the nappa dash £575 - it’s much nicer than sensatec and you see it all the time (unlike the headrests). Also no heated steering wheel? The CNC paddles are m...

Re: Phytonic blue or Tanzanite II

A couple of thoughts on the specification - I wouldn’t have the embossed headrests ahead of the CNC paddles - I will pm you a pic of mine (logo not letters) as they aren’t very noticeable on ivory. Also I prefer no SPG on Alpina saloons - my children also used to complain about how dark it was - the...

Re: Phytonic blue or Tanzanite II

What about arctic race blue? It’s a new (old) standard metallic.

Re: D5s vs B5s

Hi, since 2017 I have had G models D5, M5, B5 touring, D5s again - mpg have been 40/22/25/43 but the 43 is only based on the first 500 miles on the new one. B5 is lovely but unless you are really on it the D5 is a better day to day car for my mileage and still sounds really good albeit not a V8. I h...

Re: D5 #250 has arrived!

Factory options are as follows: Alpina green - pictures don’t do it justice at all - goes from a black green to a gold flecked bright green depending on light - I have always had dark blues, black and silvers but the range and variation of colour is amazing - just as owners say about Alpina blue too...

Re: D5 #250 has arrived!

Thanks everyone! I get the gold stripes with green but silver wheels and stripes go together better for me. The correct colour picture of the car is new to me so maybe it started with the LCI. It is a better Alpina green than the configurator manages! The wheels etc are just generic LCI 5 though but...

A few initial pictures of #250 picked up last Wednesday - will add F6CB85EA-33DD-4D5F-89CB-35493C064235.jpeg 348FD2BA-EE54-4699-B1D1-21792DABA107.jpeg 85AEFD69-9D12-49D4-96A9-84C53621F5E3.jpeg AD1A1C3D-D83A-470A-A938-3D6EBA871137.jpeg 3A732014-3F8E-4DD1-92F3-0153313744D6.jpeg A08CB32F-AF01-498D-823B...

Re: Ordering a New D5

Picked my new D5 up from Gary and Alex at Nottingham on Wednesday - love it! So…I would order the current model - it looks (relatively) good value having avoided the hefty price hikes of other models - the D3/B3 is only a LCI update - the next D5 will be a whole new model so heaven knows where the p...

Re: F31 B3s tourer sytner #174 35k £48500

That’s a proper Alpina specification - interior looks a lovely combination esp. with the blue leather lower - I don’t suppose there were many lavalina F31s.
