Re: Help with Alpina history

A nice E34 is worth having any way. the one picture you show looks promising, if its the right money an old skool 8V wafter is no bad thing!

Re: E36 3.2 Headgasket DIY

Re: E36 3.2 Headgasket DIY

Even if all 12 tappets on that side weren't filling with oil the valves would still open. This to me seems a highly unlikely scenario also Have the valve seats been touched lapped in...

Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?
