Much as I would love to drool over Sage Green DB9's, I have to remind you all that this thread is about "ALPINAs in Magazines"

Cheers

So a Sage Green Aston wouldn't do it for you, Steve, nor a dark green 1920s Bentley, or a Lotus 47 in dark green with the yellow noseband???
i Think its a phobia. Some people look at spiders and freak out. When i look at green cars i feel sick, just not for me. :lol:

Went round WH Smiths yesterday trying to get the new edition of Total BMW for the D3 Review but it wasn't in yet! :cry:

I have a few observation of my own to write about, but am waiting for the 3000 mile point.

Also I want to see if those observations are mentioned in the article, most are good but a couple of minor badduns! :)

Received my copy of BMW Car Club magazine today. A small running report of a B3S Touring, apparently the owner is well known on this forum and it is not James Bond (Charles, I couldn’t resist that poor attempt at humour). :lol:

The May 2007 issue of Practical Performance Car magazine features the Alpina B10 3.2 in a factory-approved tuner group test feature alongside a Ford Cortina Savage, an Opel Manta Courtenay Turbo, a Mercedes AMG 190E 3.2 and a Jaguar Chasseur Stealth Biturbo.

"The V8 may be more powerful but the 3.2 is the drivers' choice".
