Excellent - Sounds like we have a nice little turn out. I am (possibly) expecting a chap who is interested in buying my B10, to turn up at 12:00 as its a notable amount closer for him to view the car than drive down to my home (besides, i would have had to cancel coming, if he wanted to view at my h...

Ah, they made them pre-facelift? - In that case you are are absolutely right, a B3s would pip the B3.3 in the 'perfect car' stakes.

..... If only i had more time in the UK i reckon a (pre facelift) Alpina B3.3 would be my perfect car. I will explain why...

maybe make a list of those attending, and those that cant - well hopefully we will get the opportunity to meet again soon.

1. Richard300 (or just Richard :-) Alpina B10 3.2 Touring

I'm fairly pragmatic about this kind of thing, in as much as 'a car is worth what someone will pay for it'... obviously nobody wanted to pay £7000 for it, but i believe that someone will want to pay £5500 for it - I genuinely would have paid £5500 for it!! I thought for a moment i might have need...
