Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

Sounds good Charles. I also had my winter tyres fitted today so will update my other thread shortly - I went for Alpin 5s. Have they put the invoice through today so you can take advantage of the Michelin Cashback offer? The Alpin 5 is a great tyre - did you go staggered sizes? And why Alpins and n...

Re: Four Alpina 19" wheels with Michelin Pilot Alpin Winter Tyres

Interested to note that you have the same width tyres on different width wheels - any particular reason why?

Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

More a case of "What did you do FOR your ALPINA today?" as I ordered a set of Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 tyres to go on the second set of staggered wheels that I acquired earlier this year for my car. Speaking to my local fitters who I have entrusted to source the tyres, apparently Michelin store virt...

Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

Today I took my '98 B10 for her 18th mot since I have owned her and she passed again with no advisories, lovely :D . Even the dreaded E39 handbrake performance was up slightly on last year. Congrats Jim, can’t be many folk that’ve taken the same car for some many MOT’s! Did the 15th on my car earli...

Wonder if the seller has misjudged the peak market valuation for this one. :think
Too greedy with the original reserve/price, perhaps?

But you would have thought that the first auction might have given you a clue where the market might have been ...

Re: B3S touring #029: Hodge's old car

if the reserve has been completely removed, then someone will get an absolute bargain ... If there is no reserve, the listing heading states so. Therefore, there is one not yet met cheers Bobbly Thanks - I wasn't aware that they state "No Reserve". All will be revealed in less than 3 hours ...

Re: B3S touring #029: Hodge's old car

Just over 8 hours to go (closes at 2010hrs today) and the bids have plateaued at £7,600 My guess is that this has been relisted with a lower reserve given where the previous bidding reached so, either we will see a rush up to the £14k mark or, if the reserve has been completely removed, then someone...

Is it a 4? They all look alike these days, looks like an 8 to me for some reason but then I'm not keeping up with developments.

It's a 4 door too, so Gran Coupe?
I agree with you, Asim - I think that's the B8GC

Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

A question for the group - The autocar feature that ran a feature on my in August 1999 states that the car features MacPherson Struts and Bilstien shocks. Now I was under the impression that Alpina favour Sachs shocks and thier own springs. Can anyone help here? The E46 B3 cars went with Alpina-spe...
