Just realised where you're based Ryan, I commute through Stalybridge and Ashton most days going to the motorway. Not seen you driving about yet though.

Sorry for late reply, not been getting any email notifications.. Cars very nearly ready had a issue with emissions on the MOT so had to order a Lambda Sensor so fingers crossed it should be fine now, all being well it will be MOTíd by the end of the week.

Hereís the picture of rear end, I managed to salvage the original badges in the end.

Ok so just a quick update, the cars now MOTíd finally sorted after a new oxygen sensor.
Just valeted and was going to take some photos and the heavens opened so I havenít bothered!

Anyway if anybody is interest of know of anyone interested in buying a B5, I will be advertising the car at £14,750. If someone from this forum wants it I will take £14,000 knowing itís going to stay with a Alpina Enthusiast

Thanks Ryan
P.S I will get some photos when itís dry

Posts are correct in my view. The element of risk for supercharger failure is disproportionate to to the price being asked for the car. Lets say it is 15K as an example then the supercharger is 33% of the value of the car.

Even with full service history the fully comprehensive BMW warranty to include the supercharger cannot be obtained. If it could I would expect the monthly premium to be in excess of 200 per month based on what I pay for mine.

Sounds like it has not been cherished, difficult market to sell this for high price in my view.

A close look car has Bridgestone tyres fitted, I believe that ALPINA only had tested and fitted michelin tyres. Some insurance policies whereby car has been insured correctly as an ALPINA as opposed to base model ( as mistake made by some I am told) specifically say tyres "in accordance with manufacturers instruction". Therefore If I was buying a new full set of boots would have to come off the price.
