    Learn something new everyday! I actually checked Munich legends website and it’s listed as a track car and it’s sold!

    So hard to pick - like the E46 CSL is something I could really relate to but how could I look past that silver E30 M3 evo....

    Part of me wants to experience the E28 Alpina B7S Turbo though - it had 330bhp, with a boost valve next to the tartan seats, manual box and slipper out back...... so so cool (if a total nightmare to maintain).

    Great pictures thanks. I was nearly going to their open evening recently. A friend was there looking at the red Sport Evo E30 M3 a couple of weeks back, he has an Alpine White 1M. Really great cars to drive. The White M1 they have is on Irish plates, sadly will not be coming back here by the looks of it. I remember the adjustable boost knob from the B7S I had. The experience is highly recommended. It’s an E12

    Ah ha, so it is - do tell us more about it!

    330bhp back then was batshit numbers - the 911 (930) Turbo in ‘81 had only 300bhp....

    Christ Andy, is there any limit to the dream cars youv had.

    It was an immense car to drive. Extremely comfy with the lovely seats. Very capable and handled really nicely, compliant without harshness and yet sporty. That’s the beauty of how an Alpina drives. It stopped very well too. The most BMW offered at the time in a 5 was 218BHP, so these were a different world. The quality of the product was very high. It sure didn’t feel like a tuner down a back street. Alpina took cars from the line in BMW and didn’t loose any build quality. They had an extended range fuel tank.

    The progression from the B7 to B7S led to more plush seats and interior, better trimmed boot around the extra tank. Obviously the was the larger engine with the extra 30 BHP. There were 149 B7’s in the E12 and 60 (they say ) B7S E12’s. Oh I had a B7 too





    Bottom left B7S, Right is B7. Ignore the top that was an E21 A1/3 I had.
