Nice review Neil. That's actually the first time I've put a face to the name! :lol:

Interesting that 001 is right hand drive.

Nice Kirium too :wink: I have one in my collection but with the silver face 8)

Hi Neil,
I enjoyed that. Nice thorough review of a great car. But... chewing gum while talking to camera?!
Regards
Simon

Great review Neil, performance figures are so impressive. As are all the gismo's top spec in the car. Personally i'm not yet in love with the front end of the car, cant put my finger on exactly what it is but just the overall shape not doing it for me. Also the new style classics i'm not over joyed with. The ride of the car seems tremendous with all the different settings to choose from. The rear of the car looks super, my favorite look of the new shape.

Cool video.

Cheers for that was a very good watch. Got me typing Alpina into you tube. As already said not sure on the front end. As for the new classics, didn't like them initially but sold when saw them in the alloy.
