If so, you Dutch people are really nuts, as I have one Dutchman who bought 3 of my friends urquattro's and has around 40 us spec audis in his possession. Fantastic fanatic, wish we have more such folks!!

OK, here you go. Don't know if it's been posted here before.

CarSpotting.com - Alpina B3 Biturbo Cabrio

I was looking for nice Alpina wallpapers and fired up Google image search. Towards the middle of the first page came this.

No idea if it's geniune or not. But either way it's a nightmare.

EDIT: Just noticed the engine. It's not geniune. Phew!

My E3 was a barn find. I have an E21 B6 that I took to a mechanic and he was telling me he used to own an 3.0 Alpina? I asked if it was the coupe and he said no the four door. I hadnt heard of Alpina tuning any four doors but after inquiring with a few people they did in fact tune some four doors. The mechanic told me he traded the car long ago for some parts cars.
I kind of forgot about the car for a couple years, but after bringing the e21 back to mechanic he had a picture of the car which kind of renewed my interest. For some reason he wouldnt tell me who he sold the car to or where it was. That made me a little more interested in trying to find the car. I remembered an old BMW junkyard that had closed many years ago but was still listed in information. So I called the number and they answered. Apparently the owner sold off all his inventory and someone bought it and moved it a few blocks over. I asked the lady who answered the phone if they had a silver Alpina. She said yeah its sitting right in front of me. I then spoke to the owner who agreed to allow me to come over and check out the car. To my surprise, there it was sitting covered completely in dust inside a warehouse surrounded by parts and parts cars. To make a long story short, after a lot of persuading and confirmation of the cars authenticity I bought the car and have been slowly restoring it. It was originally fjord blue but was repainted silver. Its now back to fjord blue and almost finished. Here's a picture the first day I saw the car.
