Those who don't know about Alpinas don't care & those who know realise he's a faker - therefore he's fooling nobody - therefore he's a prat.

If someone wanted their car to have the 'Alpina' look but could not afford a genuine car, would he be prepared to pay for the badges or simply lift them from a 'Genuine' vehicle.

Only a thought.....and I am not saying this is the case here....

The ALPINA badge is not expensive and readily available on ebay for a few pounds. It is the model badge that is expensive.
