Evening all.

I have just finished counting up the cars from today. I got photos of everything except one Roadster S that was parked outside the gates near the Mini dealership (If anyone has any details/pics please drop me a line).

I will post picture in due course but the following attended:

82 visiting Alpinas
19 vehicles in Alpina stock
4 customer cars

The total was 105 Alpinas on site.
Regards,

James

Checked mine during the drive along with their temps, the run to Belvoir castle saw the front tyre temps hit 30 degrees, the rears stayed a steady 22 degrees.
Nothing to see here.... move along in an orderly fashion please!

Damned good effort Sir..... but no cigar :shock:

Most miles driven to event? (Chas? ChrisLux?)

Least miles driven to event?

Most common model present?

Rarest model present? :wink:

Oldest car present?

Newest car (unsold Sytner cars excepted) present?

Smallest engine present?

Largest engine present?

And although I was busy off nosing at the truly amazing BMW M760Li in the showroom could someone let us all know who won any prizes such as quiz? show'n'shiny' ? best new car? best older car?



In all seriousness though, thank you so much for bothering to take down some numbers; it gives Alpina enthusiasts and I suspect Alpina themselves some food for thought as to how things have gone over the years.

I personally thought there was the widest spread of cars there had been for some years but on reflection the older cars were rather absent as there were some notable exceptions; for example, no

E12
E21
E23
E24
E28
E31
E32
E38 :oops:

Perhaps the older cars have moved into the hands of 'collectors' rather than 'enthusiasts' and as such the cars have become destined to become ornaments and museum pieces rather than Herr Bovensiepens vision of 'Fine automobiles for the Connoisseur'.

Or perhaps, in the case of the seven series cars, simply neglected :roll:

Thank you again for the amazing and attentive clipboardery but if you could get around to finalising the finer details I have requested I would be most grateful :wink: :D

No worries, oddly I enjoy it.
