Ha ha Bob, I didn't want to say anything until I had it in my possession.
This is Alpina no.6 for me, from C2 2.7 touring, B3 3.0 ( left hooker), 2 x B3 3.3 (one convertible) and lastly my D3 biturbo. They have all been great cars, all 3 series I know, but this one is another level. Such a high level of quality !

Wow, what a machine.

I have enjoyed all my previous Alpina’s but this one is something else. From the drive and performance to the quality and luxury of the interior, this feels so special. That’s not even taking into account the amazing colour ! :D

Stunning car, very envious!

Do we know many Edition 50's were registered in the UK?
Assume all were saloons too?
