Hi Paul, Thats actually VERY good to hear and you can rest assured it will be well and truly pampered by me. I don't mind niggles as all cars have them to some esctent. They are normally that minor that you keep forgetting to get around to them. I can't beleive that Sitners fitted them like that. Ho...

Re: ''DECO STRIPE KITS''

Hi, Are you still doing stipes etc? The reason I ask is that i may be buying a D3 tomorrow but the side stripes have been fitted incorrectly. After discussing with the dealer they would rather I sorted it. Anyway can you supply a side stripe/decal for each side. How much would that be including deli...

Hi All its been a while and Side Stripes

Hi all it has been some time but I MAY be able to come back to the Alpina fold :D I am going to look at an Alpina D3 coupe tomorrow on a 2008 plate and if all is well I will be coming home in it. The only thing is that the side stripes/decals are in the wrong place. I mentioned this and they are wil...

WOW :D Very nice indeed. I think they could have supplied a better colour combination though. The dash looks very basic on that model to. It should have been a fully spec'd car IMO. I do like the review but i also think it is played down a little. I like some of the comments about the tyres etc and ...

Is there no possibility of getting a few re-produced. I know it may cost a little, but it would defiantly take the heart ache out of it. I know that some companies can produce one off runs in small quantities these days. I did a google search under label reproduction and found a few like this http:/...

Very good thread :D Just love car restoration :D The best thing is ALWAYS take LOTS of photographs of things as you take them off. They will be so much help on the rebuild. Things can look very complicated sometimes, but like anything if you take your time and work on each bit it is like a jigsaw. T...

Spot on job there Alex, I bet it must have taken a lot of effort to do all that. After all a five series is a lot bigger than a 3. I used to spend ALL weekend doing that :lol: Did you find though that when you started you took a lot of care, but then realised if you carried on at that pace you will ...

One good thing, like you say, is that we have LOTS of time to make a really nice job. Not something that you get very often in the commercial world lol. The A5 size sounds good to me and there are no reasons why we cant do a good, cost effective style. I did a calendar some time ago that fitted in a...

That is a fantastic build there :D I was thinking of doing exactly the same thing, with the 4wd sierra floor plan, on my RS2000. I remember them building exactly the same thing with a MK1 escort many years ago in one of the retro ford mags. Is that where you got the idea?? The only thing with my RS2...

Hi guys, GREAT idea :D I know that Andy (D4) and a few others, including myself are quite capable of doing the artwork/photographs. If the others don't have the time to do it, as I know they are very busy people, and need me to do the layouts then count me in. Obviously there needs to be a theme to ...

I will look forward to the pictures.

I will watch out for the fast ford feature, although I will probably read it in the newsagents whilst I buy a classic ford mag for my RS :D
