D3 BT #413 - checking in!

Post by Twiki » Mon May 04, 2015 2:19 pm

Hi all.

I've finally been accepted in here, and thought I'd say hello.

I picked up my first Alpina about 3 weeks ago now and still haven't managed to wipe the grin off my face.

Ever since owning my car, 316 E30, with fake Alpina classics, I've wanted the real thing. Finally, after changing jobs and ditching a company car I've been able to get one!

I actually really like the stripes, which appear to have been retro-fitted as they don't appear on the register photo. Also glad I managed to pick up a Lux pack version as I like my toys.

And the obligatory photo of course ;)
