That Alpina is like sticking a Lexus badge on a Yaris. At least make a bit more effort if your going to make an homage, and don't try to pretend it really is an Alpina!

Their ebay name is "accept car finance" :o
At least the financial crash of 2008 has taught the industry many lessons :wink:
They need a decent name as I would never buy from a garage that has finance in its name - they are going to be on 19.9% APR and try to convince you its a great deal - salesman's name must be Swiss Tony :rofl:
Looks like RIX are the company behind this, google them, plenty about them out there. I guess they probably advertising this as both RIX and ACCEPT with the ACCEPT ad targeting the poor credit aspect specifically with the actual car a secondary concern :x

oh dear, he wants £9k for it as a Cat C, sticking an Alpina badge and some plastic strips on it does not make it special - better cars are selling for less on here. :headbang:

My pet hate is cars described incorrectly to try and trick people into buying something the car is not, here is another one - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274740184163 ... SwHclgZAgG, this is not an LE (They came in red / white or black), any decent garage knows this.

This also annoys - https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-detail ... 000&page=6 --- not an Msport
I cant believe that people are actually bidding on this car - its an SE on a CAT C with a few bit of plastic and an Alpina badge stuck on - do people not research what they are bidding on :headbang:

Someone is coming to look at my 35i today, hoping the price of the 35is doesn't rocket too much as that's my next purchase.

Nowt, i was actually after an se this time round after the msport experience in the e85 i was definitely wanting the smoother ride of the se, there's not much in the styling other than a slightly more aggressive looking front bumper and nicer sill plates, rear bumper not so much, se steering wheel actually looks better than the msport in the e89 which was the opposite in the e85, all just imho of course, I'm sure ole git was just referring to the fact non m sport are generally thought to be a little cheaper as they are seen as lower spec by the less well educated :D
if its got tits or tyres..its trouble :D

It's in Maida Vale. Probably got the butler to do the ad!
Strange MOT history. Needed 2 front tyres twice in 4.5k miles recently. Front bumper damage also advised, could be a clue.
https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-detail ... 000&page=8

"MSport Highline " :roll: that front bumper is a Se :( rear is Msport so either its partway through a transition or its a had a knock & owner has opted for the cheap repair route by fitting a Se bumper .
Its at least £2500 overpriced too :cry:

That is a lot of cash.
Ours sold late last year for under £9k. Granted it didnt have idrive and had 60,000 miles but I dont think this car is worth £5k more.
