Hi Simon, and congrats!
Where are based in France?
I'm in Paris, and so is Thierry Zunino.
I know of your B8, which I have a video of doing donuts on an airfield.
I saw it up for sale a while back (with IMC) and spoke to a prior owner who said he was selling due to practical reasons (spare parts too hard to find for him). He traded it in for an M3 3.4. He missed the performance of the B8...
Here are 2 photos of your car, which I have in my B8 file (I cant' remember where I got them, perhaps the Alpina Register):
I would be most interested to hear more about your car (mileage?), and what work for what price you have had and are having done.
The B8 that I recently bought was a one-owner car with full history in excellent condition at 170.000Km. I am spending a fair amount on it to change the head gaskets (as a precaution) and generally bring it from simply "excellent" to absolutely mint condition (esthetic and mechanical).
I will let you all know when I get final bill.
