Re: BMWCC Gaydon - 11th August 2019

Agreed. It is impossible for me to calculate or coordinate. The BMW Car Club will not give me names of those who have booked due to GDPR, they will only give numbers to date 7 members have purchased a ticket and one non member. If anyone has purchased a ticket and failed to say they wish to park wit...

Re: BMWCC Gaydon - 11th August 2019

It is interesting that the numbers on here and other social media do not yet correlate to tickets purchased. If you are able to attend and do intend to do so, I would encourage you to purchase your ticket and ALPINA display pass well before the cut off date of 2nd August 19. reminder the number is 0...

Re: Brake squeal

You purchased a used approved BMW ALPINA from Sytner. Firstly my question to them is why was the 147 (of whatever the figure is) point check not carried out out, worn brake pads and buckled wheels. Totally unacceptable. Have you checked to see if there is any damage or scoring to the discs? I had a ...

Re: Alpina Insurance - Help

In respect of the last post. I accept that you had a "better" quote. However, not specifically ALPINA related but insurance related. My Son's partner chose the cheapest quote on line with Hastings direct for her Mini. She had an accident after skidding on a newly resurfaced road. The recovery man ri...

Highly recommended BMR Performance RH10 4NP

This is slightly geographical. I also appreciate there are many good alternatives. However, have you, like me, struggled with any confidence that your main dealer is looking after your ALPINA? Understands it? Fits the right parts? Shall I go on? I like a few other members have discovered BMR Perform...

Re: Alpina Insurance - Help

These sort of discussions can prove to be fairly pointless. I have spoken at length to a Director of an Insurance Company, there are so many factors that make up the quotation, it is virtually impossible to compare like for like. It should be noted that insurance quotes are based on the number of cl...

James from Hassocks, West Sussex who has recently acquired a 3.4 Roadster S. The gent in the B3S E46 in Black, sorry did not ...
