Hi,

My name is Maarten and I own an Alpina B5/ E61 from 2006 for over 1 year now (live in the Netherlands by the way)

Image

Still love it...also due to the love for Alpina's (who sold me this one) from the garage.

Nice to perform some upgrades in time besides replace parts
...like front spoiler..;(
Audio, most likely replace CCC with Android system.. , brake caliper chemical treated or painting .., maybe Quartz coating or similar etc..

Done so far:
Not much actually, besides washing it and regular maintenance
Yes:
- changed grill (gloss black)
- changed window trim (matt black)

Altough I did not want it in the beginning..it was itchy..can always change it back to (weathered) chrome.

Nice to meet you all,[/img]

Welcome to the forum and what a car you have there
I came close to buying an E61 B5 last year but it just didn't work out in the end
Hope you have many happy miles in it

Welcome Maarten, nice looking wagon you have there 8)
I'd be interested in your upgrade of the CCC if and when you do.
