That’s lovely Bob. The LCI has really grown on me.

Sadly not. Without a reg and only knowing it’s ALPINA Green does little to narrow it down unfortunately.

I could be wrong, but don’t the LCI models come without the ‘biturbo’ badge?

That is usually the case, but everything else about this looks to be LCI (rear lights and front bumper splitter) so maybe a modification. There are earlier cars that now sport body coloured rear badges without the BiTurbo part so maybe it’s been added here?
