My salesman at Sytner told me this morning that apparently, according to Kris Odwarka, my B5 Touring is going to be the very first customer car, worldwide!

Very cool... :D

As with most Alpina models #001 was the showcar at Geneva. And Synter and Nicole might get demonstrators too. So you'll get a very low serial number.

Having the first customer car is very cool though! :thumbsup:

Yup, of course you're right - on demonstrators, from the sound of things, Sytner's don't even get their full production demo saloon for a little while yet - the black one (#0006) is one of the pre-production cars, I believe - so I'd be surprised if they get a demo Touring before mine. I expect mine will probably be #0003 or #0004 or so.

The first customer B5 Limousines are now being delivered...

A friend saw one on Swiss registration last week and now the first cars are being offered for sale in Germany.

Yup - mine should be built sometime in September / early October - car 001 was a pre-production car, so I don't know if they'll ever sell it on.

Hopefully, by September, they'll have finally figured out how to price and build it - currently they're still having some trouble between London, Nottingham and Buchloe in figuring that one out, because it's both an Alpina and a full-blown individual job, as well as the first production car...

Still, they are trying their best and being nice about it all!
