Re: Time for a new one!

Indeed it was. "Just finished" said Boris when I realised it was your car.

Re: Time for a new one!

Popped my car into CPC today and saw yours on the ramp. So you have been "spotted". 😀

Re: Alpina E28 coming up for auction

It certainly needs a fair bit of work. I wonder what the scuttle panels are like? An area of concern for me would be the apparent attempt to disguise the brake pipe failings.

If fitted it could be the butterfly valves in the tailpipes. They open and close at certain RPM. My E46 sounds meatier when starting from cold then once warm settles down.

My point is that they’ll take your money. I suppose their get out clause regarding SORN is that it’s a material fact.

This is now a chicken and egg situation. You cant tax an uninsured car and you cant insure a car thats untaxed ! Madness I insured my Alpina after being SORN'd and also without an MOT. To check this out why not go onto Admirals website and see if they'll insure the Roadster. I bet they don't refuse ...

Whatever we think of Clarkson at least Alpina are receiving some well deserved publicity.
