Yeah, it's shame the service is rubbish.Totally agreed with you doc on the stealership part.
I was in Dubai for 5 years had a E46 and E60 before I moved to Doha last year. AGMC is helpless.
My experience with the BMW dealer in Doha (Alfardan) is quite different. They have a service workshop open till mid-night. Most of time you don't even need an appointment.
The best deal is, they are willing to extend the warranty+service package to 6 years/110,000 km at a reasonable fee. That to me is critical to owning Alpina. There are only 3 B5/s in Doha.
Thanks Kyle. Glad I did a check the seats a while back, not sure if you know but they have bags of fluid that get automatically moved around to subtly move your spine to keep it happy.Thanks for sharing the pics and the write up! Really enjoyed both.
The car is STUUUUNING! Congrats!
Jealous of your gas prices... the greed of gov+corps in our part of the world is mind numbing. I'm researching gassing our B5.
I know exactly what you mean about the comfort seats... I often feel after 1000+ km pan european cruise, that my whole body feels more relaxed and comfortable after the drive! It sounds crazy but... that is how I feel.
When I read those gas prices... lots of *beeps* came out! Jammy bugger! :confused3Thanks Kyle. Glad I did a check the seats a while back, not sure if you know but they have bags of fluid that get automatically moved around to subtly move your spine to keep it happy.
Plus I always wondered why the headrests never seemed to be where I left them, turns out it it moves those around automatically as well. I thought I was going a bit mad!
You really don't want to know how much it costs to fill my tank.... Oh, OK.... on average about 16-18 pounds... The only downside is I now only ever want a V8 and it's going to be a bit of a shock if/when I come home!
