:thumbsup: We had a great day out today, enjoyed our breakfast at the AV8 with everyone and then set off down to Weston. S. Mare
for BMs on the lawn! Phew, was it hot, weather turned out spot on. Cheers firebobby. :thumbsup:
Had loads of lookers and interest in the Alpina down at Weston! Nobody pulled out their wallet though, so she's tucked up back in the garage with me. :)

Dave where are you :|
Sorry for the mix up, good to meet you. :thumbsup:

We both enjoyed the meet, what a nice venue and company.

Enjoyed hearing the sound generator Sky-drive 8)

Good to experience driving an Alpina for the first time, thanks Big Red Cat. Smoother, low down power than the M and the B12 kit rides better than my standard dampers too. The M still suits me best though :)

The sound generator certainly makes for an awesome noise, absolutely recommend having one especially with all the foam inserts removed from it (... hint hint Ian!) I reckon it has to be the best mod Ive made to the car!

Cracking morning out with some fellow minded enthusiasts! Look forward to the next one, thanks to Firebobby for organising.

Do you mean the 3 litre sound generator Sky Drive has fitted to his 2.5 or my switchable exhaust on my M? :)

Sadly i missed this after a few too many beers the night before listening to a a cracking live bands' interpretation of Pink Floyd led to my inability to coordinate an escape before the landlord at my local initiated the inevitable lock procedure...

Subsequently I was in no fit state to get up the following morning in time for this.....

Glad you had a good meet...'Till Next time!
