Hi Guys, I have just found this site on the web. I live in New Zealand & own the first E24 Alpina B7S Turbo to see the new day, as we are the first country in the world to see the new day.
My B7S Turbo is number 18 of the 30 produced. It has only done 43,000km. It was origially sold by Faltz of Esen in Germany but somehow made its way to Japan where I purchased it at auction & imported it to New Zealand.
It had the usual problems with the Pierburg Dl Fuel injection. We sent it back to Alpina for a comeplete overhaul. The car has since been tuned on a dyno & is running extremely well.
The overall condition of the car is very good. We had some panel work done, a repaint in its original Alpina green. Other than that it has just been a lot of polishing & cleaning.
I'm very pleased to find this site & chat with other B7 owners. I also own & race an ex Works Grp A 635 csi, so I love the E24s. I alss own a '88 E30 M3 Europameister and a 4.6is X5.
It would be fantastic to be able to meet with you guys in Europe at some stage - unfortunately without the car.
Look forward to hearing from you. I will post some photos of the car taken on New Years day 2010, while we are enjoying a beautiful summer. Hope it's not too cold for you Europeans.
