What is the small Alpina boot badge?
I used big ones in the stripes - and with the front labeled, the sides labeled the boot looked a little bare - so after finding the small ones I put one on.

First maintenance costs today

13.5 months into ownership and the B5s is having its brake fluid replaced today. That is its first maintenance cost (apart from the warranty renewal). And there is still many thousands left before the next service. Makes me feel better being that the current tank of fuel has been only used for town ...

Dumped a bottle in the Passat and it certainly cut out some of the heavy smoke.

Come on - you can do better than that! I am currently on 32 cylinders, 17300cc, 1554ps and 2300nm :shock: I am sure someone will be along shortly to trump me.

Tis a pretty pretty bike - and I really don't get bikes at all :lol:

Re: COC certificate for Alpina

Dear friends, at the moment i have several problems to register my Alpina in italy (bought used in germany), because i need the COC (european certificate of conformity). It is possible to get it for fast all the brands, but not for alpina. I went direct to the factory in buchloe to get it, but for ...

Just replaced one on the X3 (E83). I ordered 3 (unpainted) from Ebay arrived within the week.

25mins to fit a rear one :D

The Alpina is Titan Silver - I actually have a can of that at home - and am pretty sure I can spray it on without causing it to fail.

I've never dealt with Elite - but they generally buy and hold - often increasing prices and only sell when they get a good offer.

A couple of B8s have sold in Switzerland in the last 12 months.

That B8 is a nice spec though - if you want me to check it out I might be able to sort something out.

@MCB - Anthracite - I'll try to get some better pictures over the weekend. I felt black was gone to be too hard against the silver. I liked the subtle silver on white that my old B3 had. This is a bit more stand out but I think it works - massively alters the visual blockiness of the sides. (IMHO) @...
