E63 B6 - Sandbanks

Post by James_G » Mon May 16, 2022 4:10 pm

As I was driving away from Sandbanks yesterday I spotted an E63 B6 or possibly a B6 S.

Sadly no photo as I was driving and I didn't catch the reg either as I was put off by Alpina bonnet badge. It was RHD and Alpina Blue though.

Would normally post about it without a photo but looking at the register it seems it can only be about 1 of 2 cars to match the description.

B6S #173 possibly?

The only Alpina Blue E63 I have a note of.

As James says, there is only one UK B6/S COUPE in ALPINA Blue. The other possibilities, as there aren't many genuine cars to choose from, if it's a blue B6/S you've got:

- B6 CABRIOs:
#008 and #010 in Blue Onyx
#037 in Monaco Blue

- B6S COUPE:
#173 in ALPINA Blue II (has a 6-digit cherished plate and didn't have an ALPINA Bonnet Roundel in Jul-21 when it was spotted at Sytner Notts)
#188 in Le Mans Blue (had BMW roundels in 2019)

- B6S CABRIO:
#083 in ALPINA Blue (I believe that one lives in Aberdeen area)

Thank you both - helpful info and I now have renewed appreciation for the B6.

I did think that I could pull an image from my dashcam but then remembered I don't have one in the Alpina, which is something I must correct.
