What exactly are you looking for? There really isn't much of a "service manual" per se.

And which car do you own? Recently aquired?

I need engine/wiring schematics for a 1979 ALPINA B7 TURBO COUPE (e24). I've had it for a long time and it is sitting in the garage. It is time to bring it back....and be like yours. I saw a service manual for a 1979 ALPINA B7 TURBO (e12)Pierburg so I am hoping it is possible to find the info. I need.

The beste way is to contact Alpina directly. I send an email to Alpina and recieved the wiring schematics for my E21 B6.

1979 ALPINA B7 TURBO COUPE (#37)

Do you have some more information about your B7 Turbo Coupe such as production number and color?
My production # is 37 and my car is black.....it has 28,000 miles and is almost new. It has a reserve gas tank attached to the regular tank also. Alpina wheels, steering wheel and gear shift but the badges are missing.

I am in the process of bringing it back to life after it sitting for 10 years. I need the engine management schematics/wiring specs. for the car so my shop can get it running than I will enhance it with modifications. I never got around to fixing it up because I have a 5 series.

The Pierburg injection system is quite sensitive so very likely (one of) the issues if your car isn't running properly. However - it's very difficult to get working properly. Best is to not let your mechanics play with it at your cost but to send it to Alpina for rebuilding.

Good luck with your project. It is great to see another Alpina coming back to life. Here is an ALPINA registry which is quite impressive. I think that your car is marked as DESTROYED here: feel free to contact the web admin and let them know that it is being rebuilt...

Definately not the same car. Atleast 2 major things do not match. First is the production # : one is listed as 37 and the other is 35. Second, the one that is destroyed is a B7/1 and was made well after '79 and can be verified by the later style bumpers in the pictures. The one in this post is a 79 and is a B7 Turbo coupe.

Please don't modify this car. It's one of only 5-10 examples in the USA and only a few dozen in the world. It should not be modified - but is extremely rare in original condition!

I second that!!!

If you want a hot modified turbo 6, build one. Don't modify the Alpina. Besides, these early cars in particular make a very bad platform for modification, unless you just start scrapping fuel and ignition systems wholesale which would be, as mentioned, a crime.

My mistake! I am still very new to the Alpina world (2 weeks). It is great to see so many sites and avid Alpina fans. Good luck on restoring your current car and I agree with the other comments: please, do not modify a rare Alpina. Keep it original!

Another interesting thread for you...

Alpina B7 turbo E12 Pierburg service manuel

Thanks, I have it and so does my shop, I also gave them the wiring schematics for the B6 with the Pierburg injection and Hartig ignition. I can't believe that guy thought my car was destroyed....Haha, uh no, not even close. I checked out the Alpina Archive Registry and wish I knew what those colors are, only black makes sense.....does the value go down if I paint my car? What colors are the most popular and least? Thanks for your feedback, you are a trusted source, my friend!

I will definitely give you a call one day, my phone is good for the whole U.S. You know more than I do and your car looks the most like mine so far that I have seen....so I want to get it to run and than I can have lots of pictures like you do. I only have so many pics. right now because it has been a someday project for along time and at my shop forever, they like having it. I have just used my 5 series but I want both now. Does it really matter if it has a lot or a little milage on it ....the cars are rare but not worth anything, does it matter if I paint it.....I am only going to do cosmetic modifications nothing permanent, I will keep it vintage, I promise.
