Very nice track shots. How did you find the touring? Did you manage to find its central pivot point? I take it you turned the traction control off?? I used to have so much fun in mine with, or without, the traction control. Some hate TC, but if you get it right it is loads of fun and keeps you strai...

Congratulations on the new car!!! I am sure that you will have many great driving experiences from now on :D I must say from that picture that I am not overly keen on the dark windows??

So I take it from your website that you are trying to sell these, as it says at the bottom of the page?? I do hope that you hold the copyright to all the images and logo's or you will be sued. I don't particularly like the design much as not much thought has gone into it. The pictures are nice but t...

They are very good quality I must say. :D
As for a car, spot on there. I would say a new B3 would go down well, if it is the same price as the caps I will order a couple lol :lol:

Thanks Neil

Hi Noor: Try these people. I got mine from Teddy @ ssdd motorsport http://www.ssdd-motorsport.com/show_sub_cat.php?cat_id=5&sub_cat_id=2 These are not cheap copies and the bases are alloy. They also do a spraying service, which I used. Very pleased with them and they were spot on. As you have the el...

Hi Noor: It depends on what you are trying to achieve? Performance wise Alpina have probably got all the bases covered pretty well. The engine and drive train are spot on and no mods are needed there. If its styling you are after then I would highly recommend autofold electric mirrors. If you have t...

Hi Noor, This mod I did on my E36 328 sport. It also has the butterfly and if you remove the vacuum tube and put a golf tee in it the flap stays open and it sounds quite nice. On an Alpina though it will be far to noisy at low revs as I did try it on my B3. The noise/vibration was unbearable!! I did...

Used to do this on my B3 also. The computer system is quite clever really and takes all these things into acount. If you drive like a grandad all the time you will do near to the recomended mileage between services. If you drive like looooooon most of the time then the service intervals will be a lo...

This sort of thing really annoys me. I bet the seller HAS been using bogus bidders in an attempt to push up the price. It is very common, but really annoying. Why does everyone think that they can sell at a premium on ebay these days!!
Nice car but I think it is way over priced.
