Re: It arrived!

Agreed, adaptive cruise is a great feature and a real essential if you do significant mileage at peak times. I still miss it although I don’t do anywhere near the 30k a year I used to.

XD3 BITURBO [F25] #762

This is a pretty poor ad considering they're asking more than they paid GT Academy at the beginning of this year.

Re: My Alpina B3

Interesting that this was originally a John Clark car, so it should be an SP-ST reg technically then.

Re: My Alpina B3

But although Sytners will source and probably add stickers to the vehicle, if they are unique orders aren't they delivered by other dealers, so could legitimately carry other plates?

Re: My Alpina B3

Stripes were no cost option As it’s such a rare thing I am a sticker for originality even down to changing the grills and to tint it for me it looks right for that year as is my ocd would be to get the Sytner Nottingham plate number made up as well but it’s your motor so you can decide Should this ...
