Very very nice. Any more information?
What are your first impressions?

I'm very jealous.

Thanks all.

First impressions are totally as expected, ie fantastic.

The steering wheel is a bit thick, but I’ll get used to it.

The main spec items are:
HK, HUD, full leather, fancy parking, pano roof

I prefer the wheels anyway, and I had centre caps on the D5 and they were a bit of a pain: sticking and rattling.

Looks great in that colour combo. I like the Dynamics too.

What happened to your D5?

My D5 was written off. We got caught in a flash flood in the highlands and the engine drew in some water.

Love it, congratulations. From the pics Tartufo looks like the perfect combination with the exterior.

Looks great in Alpinablau but the wheels just don't look finished It is like they forgot to rout out some of the metal in the spokes. I do love Dynamics on an Alpina and have 3 sets but not so sure about the look of these newer ones

Beautiful spec. How is the ride quality on the 19’s? Did you test drive one on 20’s?
