Alpina changed the cams and some other ancillary components in the s models to reduce the temperature in the catalytic converters thus allowing more power to be produced without damaging the cats. The gearbox was also tweaked for faster shifts and adaptive dampers were fitted aswell.
The B6s also were given lovely carbon vented bonnets to add extra bling and aid cooling.

Phil now you are just teasing the man with the unobtainable, as let's face it you and I are not about to sell ours so out of luck there, and the other one is in hiding!

Not 5 seats either, but with the roof down I really enjoyed my trip to Provence in 2016.

I have a turbocharged TVR which is mad when the boost kicks in as there are no driver aids at all except an LSD, but like most in this post I do prefer the linear power delivery of the supercharger. Even considering supercharging my M3.

You will just have to buy a B5 or B5s,
