Alpina Stripes: Yes or No?
My E31 B12 5.7 originally had no stripes. A previous owner has put them on. See attached photos with and without. Before I acquired the car I was convinced that I would remove the stripes as I thought they looked bad. Now I have lived with the car I seem to have changed my mind but still uncertain. I would say I'm currently 50/50. I think the thing is that the stripes are great for Aplina aficianados like ourselves as we know the history and the meaning of the stripes. For the layperson in the street the car probably looks more classy without them.
So it's up to you guys to express your opinion (on my car only please, not generally) and give me some direction.
