Must be genuine! Says Alpina on the steering wheel.
I love the fact that the recesses on the engine covers where the blanks are missing have all been polished to make them look like they should be like that. :rofl:

The irony is that the front and rear roundels have been changed to Alpina ones, yet those were always BMW from the factory, so it is actually less like an Alpina than as standard :lol:

It is quite easy to make any BM look like the Alpina model; buy the correct wheels and some genuine lettering. But most don't as the parts are stupid expensive (even the letters) so people don't bother, just buy some incorrect roundels from eBay and hope for the best.

Got to admire the 'drive home condition' line......no further obviously or it will break. :D
All good things come to those who wait. But I'm really impatient which explains a lot.
