Re: Sneak preview New B4?

Yes could be the new B8GC, just noticed the second shutline :oops: .
That would explain why it does not have the FUGLY grill.

Re: E39 B10 V8/1 #163

You would have thought that it would have been given a decent wash, looks like it has been driven through a ploughed field :( .

Also the filthy carpets and the muck in the seat :doh

One question though, did the E39 B10 have Comfort Seats or did they only come with Sports Seats?
They came with both, the seats without the adjustable thigh support were known as Comfort seats.

Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

Collected my B10 V8S from BMR this morning after an oil service, MOT, and replacement coolant pipe that caused me to break down a few weeks ago. Only driven 1000 miles in the last year :( , forgotten how much I love this car, now I can give it the full beans again :D Suspension sublime, handles like...

Re: Information for B10 V8S owners

I bought a genuine BMW 740d thermostat from a German ebay seller as he included a plug in resistor that is needed to stop an error code being stored. I haven't fitted yet but plan on doing it in the next week or two. This one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Thermostat-88-Umrustkit-mit-Widerstand-fur-BMW...

I suspect a fair amount of this will be due to the size of the tyre - big width, low profile and Pirelli compound.
Plus our Crap roads :D

Re: Information for B10 V8S owners

Brian, while your cars having work on the cooling system it might be worth swapping the thermostat for one for a 740D. It runs at cooler/more normal temperature so not so much strain on the system, part number 11512248542. Google it, well known mod for BMW V8 petrol engines Thanks Dave for the very...

Re: Information for B10 V8S owners

Have you tried ordering from FMW tuning in Germany? I tried Frank Wolff, would not have been much quicker. Alpina have to send it to FMW, they have to send it to me, and then I would have to do a 50 mile return journey to get it to BMR :( Also The S/H I was quoted was ridiculous, it was classed as ...
