B10 3.5 decal writing correct location? Help..

Post by tennyson344 » Wed Nov 23, 2022 10:34 am

Hello,
I’ve had decals made by Simon on the forum which look really great.
Just confused with where the ALPINA writing should be placed on the side of the car.
From googling it many E34 B10 3.5 have it on the front doors but then others have it in front of the front wheels..
I’ve attached examples of both.
Does anyone know why they vary and where should mine be as a UK Sytner converted car 1989?
Any help much appreciated..
Thanks

Have you contacted ALPINA directly, they shared a schematic of the correct position for boot badges when I enquired so don't see why they wouldn't with decals too.

The original press images for the B10 BT had the script on the front wing

Thanks Bob, Good idea. I have asked the chap that built my car back in the day: Mark Adkin and he believes they were at the front. I’ll just double check with Alpina as I don’t understand why there are the two options out there.

Looking at one for sale currently and archived pics looks like it’s on the front wing

I'd go with front wing. I seem to remember as well as the e34 the e31 and e32 of the same era had the "Alpina" on the front wing.
