BMR Performance or CPC Engineering are the two names that get recommended most often for ALPINA specialist knowledge and workmanship.

My E39 B10 3.2(saloon) is number 64 so you can imagine my shock when I saw several years back an E39 B10 3.2(touring) with the same number. I contacted Alpina and they said both where fine.

Wheel colour

Could someone please confirm the correct wheel colour for a 1998 B10 3.2

Something rattling around says its sparkle silver.

If anyone has the colour code that would be great.

Thanks
