Photo's of the 1990 B12 5.0.
Some minor damage to front spoiler on transport from Japan to NZ. Not too serious though.

Car won't be daily driven. Fuel cost's here $1.24. Equivalent to 2.5 Euro's
Alpina claim 24mpg(10.7L/100km) at a constant 120km/hour. They sent me a full specifiction of the Car & the original Bill of sale to Nicole Racing Japan Co LTD. Don't think this will be achievable. The temptation to squeeze the pedal will be too much!!

This will be the only 7 series Alpina in NZ or Australia. I am fairly sure, but you never know?

My mistake. I forgot about B11's. There are some B10's in the North island of NZ. I have a friend in Auckland with one.
There is a very nice B10 for sale in Auckland at the moment. $30,000 NZ Dollars

77500 original km's. Service book is in Japanese but from what I can see the milage is genuine. Certainly the condition of the car corresponds to these km's. Thanks for all your interest fella's

A bit of suggestion if I may:

- Change the stripes into silver 'coz you already have white blinkers = modern monochromatic look, or
- Keep the gold stripes and return the blinkers back to yellow = classic look

Good Point. I had noticed the front indicators are different from the rear. I may change the front to yellow/orange as I like the Gold striping & it is unmarked.
