Lovely car but the rear end is needing a BiTurbo badge - shame they don’t do that anymore

They do still do the bi turbo badge, seems to be missing from this one, unless the first owner part debadged it :wink:
Most of Sytners tourings on sale have the correct badging.
You would have thought for nearly 80K it would come with the full set of badges :(

Personal choice but BXbiturbo always a mouthful and looked a bootlid load.....Always liked the subtle BX / DX names only...

Having said that, when the school fees end then a b5 Biturbo badged car would not be an issue :D

That's a properly specced B5, I love the two-tone Lavalina.

That would definitely be one to upgrade to in a few years time!

Next step = check down the side of the sofa...
Want! :drool
I'm surprised when people "tick everying" to presumable end up way over £100K new that they don't upgrade the sound system too?

I guess for most folk the upgrade to H/K is sufficient, you need to be a serious audiophile to justify another £3.4k (at current pricing) to move up to the Bowers & Wilkins setup, even on a £120k car.

Depends on preference.

I have a complete 5 speaker Bowers & Wilkins setup at home (4 x 804 and 1 x HTM1) driven by monobloc amps, yet I never ever switch the radio/stereo on when I'm driving.

Yes £3.4K is a heck of a lot extra! I just feel very rich, rather discerning (hence Alpina choice) buyers would want "the ultimate" in everything when upgrading a B5.

As Guy says - each to his own! Guy - how come you don't listen in car? I have a B&W system in my Volvo - it's extremely good - but nothing like a good home setup I guess - do you feel you'd be irritated by the compromises an in car set up has? Just interested.
