Hello from another member in Suisse Romande. Sadly I'm still without Alpina since I left the UK :(

Wasn't that when you had a courtesy car and took it for a run and spotted another Alpina just along the road from this one? IIRC you were very impressed with the fuel consumption! :D Wow, you have a memory like a woman!! That was May 2012 and there was a B3 living up the same street (didn't see tha...

Was it a South African market 333i?
18" sounds a bit big for such a car though :?

It would be interesting to see what the breakdown is per country. The figures stated on the register for the UK over the last few years are: 2007 = 329 2008 = 174 2009 = 162 2010 = 157 2011 = 135 2012 = 54 2013 = 50 The declining trend is despite there now being a record 8 variants to choose from r...

I like this rule. Once it becomes clear how expensive cars powered by house warming oil actually are, people will switch to petrol :twisted: On a more serious note, DPF's are there for a reason.

I don't know if you've ever used Comparis to search cars, they have a very nice feature that follows the price of individual cars over time. The green B5 one has been advertised for over 4 years and seen its price go down from 78800 to 39900. :shock: http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/6648/nx4w.jpg
