The darker colour suits the E61 shape much more elegantly in my opinion :D Good luck with your sale to Robb...

Thanks for the advice , views and post reads

... and your time taken to share opinions and views appreciated. Alpina ownership is more then just costs and figures. My own view as an owner of 6 prior Alpinas is that it’s about the connection I have had with the cars I have had the good fortune to drive and enjoy. The great thinking I get done w...

... I have just loaded up some from my iPhone for the moment, but will aim to add more current ones in due course - probably after the work I listed has been carried out in the next few weeks - hopefully.

My medium term option is possibly storage for winter.

Well done

Great news Phil - the B6S was looking fantastic at Silverstone Classic recently - a lot of detailed attention and care clearly spent :-)

Lovely car and a quick question

Stunning colour combination, but then I am a little biased as it is the same colour combo as my first B5 about 6 years ago! A quick question which I hope you can answer please - was the CIC retrofit a fitting you had undertaken in your ownership, could you PM any details to help, as this is somethin...
