The one I own is my dream, but for a stable mate a B10 BiTurbo would go down nicely, the E34 Chassis is sublime

+1 CPC Amersham,

But go there and see Phil in person, he is nightmare to get hold of/get a response from by phone or email.

The only guy worth talking to in our area. Lovely looking car btw, must be very rare in that colour if not the only one?

It had a new one at 18k under warranty, I won't do short journeys in it so it always gets warmed up properly so hoping that helps ensure longevity. No still not done the pedalox cable, been working on the track M3 too much at the moment and the weather has not been great .....parked outside unfortun...

B6s
Dislikes:-
Adaptive gearbox
Throttle response.
Scared sh**less supercharger is going to go pop.

Likes:-
Awesome performance when pressed
Cruising through France effortlessly at 90+ for 12 hrs
Roof down motoring.
Rarity and depreciation proof hopefully

Yes the B5 has the same engine and supercharger and performance. I test drove a B5 sytner Ascot had 3 years ago and was gobsmacked at the performance but it was a bit to old to be my company hack at the time, got an Infiniti QX 70 instead, I bought my B6s as a toy a year later....as I love the soft ...

The RS200 sounds epic though :P RS200?...if only....in my dreams, now worth a small fortune specially in Evo guise. I remember the Collins MS one go past me like I was standing still at Pembrey, spitting flames being chased by the Bailey MS Cossie powered RS2000 in the 90's. 600hp vs 500hp awesome....

Looking at your garage I'd say if you are after collectability then keep the RS, I doubt any Alpina will ever give the same return, if it is about enjoyment then only you can decide that as it is very personal. Also depends what the new arrival is too I sold my Concours MK2 RS2000, which I owned for...

you cannot compare the E46/E39 era of BMW with any other IMO, it was BMW at their prime and cars after while good just don't the soul or character of a proper organic drivers car. More modern variants are still good and highly effective cars don't get me wrong, just heavier, bigger and more anaesth...

I might even get Phil to give me a reply to the email I sent 18 months ago about supercharger servicing.... he is a hard man to get to talk to or get a call back from! anyway, up for a Saturday or Sunday, Ramp inspections would be good, as would diagnostic query for those of us that aren't laptop pl...
