We have a pickup date of 9 July at the Performance Center and a projected build date for week 21 (20 May?) but do not have a serial number.
There was a detailed post by Alpina themselves on the production process of the E65 B7s... this would be quite similiar to the F01 B7 production process.
Regarding ALPINA production process and US homologation of the E65 BMW ALPINA B7
Hope that answers your questions?

Any information on the specification of your B7?

Kees - Thank you. Should you uncover more details for the US F01/02 B7 Alpina process, please share.

Congradulations on the assembly... I bet you're having trouble sleeping!?
Yes i have heard this also, US spec Alpina are completed at dingofling and don't make the trip to buchloe and this is why US Spec don't get the numbered plaque. Ok I might sound alittle ridiculous here but for me I wouldn't even bother to spend all that $ on an Alpina that doesn't receive any true Alpina work.

E30 M3 My first Love.

Spec are: SWB with Ceramic Controls, Smartphone Integration, Piano Black trim, Color (Black Sapphire Metallic), Upholstery (Nappa Leather in Saddle Brown and Black), Active Cruise Control and Packages (Rear Only Camera, Driver Assistance, and Rear Entertainment). Lost the camera battle. Performance Center delivery. Picked up X5 at Performance Center in 07 and had loads of fun on track. Plan a return on 9 July with B7.
