very VERY nice Very Happy

Just one thing I noticed though. WHY do Alpina keep on putting the crap standard mirrors on ????
I had the M3 ones on my car for a while and now that I have taken them off the standard ones look REALLY bad. IMO Alpina should have definitely put the nice shaped auto folding ones on. Not sure if they do these for the 7 though???

Still it is funny how everyone wants to take a shot of the dash Very Happy

Neil,

Is this the face lift model as the head light is different. This does look like a 5 series headlamp.

Kris is so right when he says it handles like a sports car Shocked its amazing really for a car its size.

When i drove the B7 last year with Kris onboard it was hard to get over the size and weight of the car i was coming into an s-bend and Kris told me to flick it into the corner at 120kph ( like it was a small sports car) Shocked and it stuck like super glue. Very Happy

Truely an amazing car Cool

The B7 is cheap over there. Including all the options listed it only cost about 64,000 sterling, about the same as the B5 in Uk.

When are we going to import our own then?
