I'm wondering what the "remaining ALPINA components" are I was thinking the US-spec B7s aren't coming to Buchloe at all? We had the thread about the previous E65 US-spec B7 somewhere here, and if I recall correctly they are not legalized with the ALPINA VIN at Buchloe and one was not able to order ALPINA interiors, as well? Still the same game with the current B7 BiT??
