ALPINA C1 E21

Post by Tonyk » Wed Jan 13, 2021 4:38 pm

I have an 1982 C1 Alpina which has now been fully restored (1 owner from new) and the rear badge C1 2.3 badge which is made out of pressed aluminium is looking a bit tatty. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement badge from to finish it off rather than go to Alpina Germany direct.

Pls put some pics up
The badge will be an issue but I think a chap from Eastern Europe whom makes replica floor mats may be able to help
One option is get a photo and get made in colour vinyl as per original size spec

Sytner Notts have a renovated red one they may be able to help with the badge also

I think I remember Gary telling me at gaydon last year that their C1 is a rep... nonetheless it still looks lovely

@TonyK have you though about 3D printing one? Longevity could be an issue and I’m not sure on the finish. Or have it refurbed?

I believe their C1 is a converted 320 but looks very good as have seen some pics on the Internet. I have been in touch with Timo at Alpina in Germany who runs the classic car side there and have also found a guy in the USA who makes them out of aluminium but hopefully I can find someone nearer to home. If the worst comes to the worst I can have the original badge refurbished.
The car is going in for its mot next week and then having the decals put on.....when thats done I will get some photos put up.

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

Yes it had the deco kit and I've bought a replacement kit from Alpina as the car was stripped back to the metal for its restoration. The car was fully loaded when purchased new from Alpina back in 82
