Another B8 Coupe for sale

there's another B8 for sale, a Coupe this time finished in Black/Black. I think it looks ok with the original wheels (except for the 'spacers' on the rear...) but with the 19" it looks ridiculous! Why bother buying and driving (for 6 years) a B8 if you like big fat tyres, lowered suspension and angeleyes? Anyone?

For some people, the Alpina badging is just not enough.

I hate to be a party pooper again, but this looks like Coupe number 025 which was the very first B8 I ever owned, and the only car I ever had an accident in. I bought it with 25.000 km and sold it with something like 52.000 km and a hefty rear left side damage. The repairs done by the new owner were not done well from a fit and finish point of view. You should be able to tell a terrible fit between the lower boot lid lip and the chassis frame standing behind the car.

When I owned the car it was original (of course). Now with 19 inch that looks silly and other degrading bits and pieces

The price for this poorly-repaired car seems ambitious, especially if the headgaskets haven't been changed.

Caveat emptor

And it's advertised as Unfallefrei (accident free) !!!! Cheeky

I agree with Michael that it seems to be his ex-B8 Coupe.

It seems it has no front spoiler? Otherwise it looks fine I think? If the car is repaered in a proper way I can`t see the problem with it? In my opinion I would rather prefer this car before the ex press car. I mean that car has been driven when new of 20-30 "car thieves" (journalists). Some press cars doesn`t even survive their first year. I don`t think most journalists care about warming up properly before giving it some spanking.
