Actually I was discussing the position of the boostknob on this car with another boardmember a few days ago. My guess it's been moved.

Yes, this one has a couple of variations from standard, inlcluding a rocker cover I've never seen. My BT cover only has the Alpina designation but this one has "BMW" and "Alpina" :dunno: Someone is also quite keen on Alpina badges - the one on the manifold is a bit tacky! The jury is out on the M3 mirrors although I like them.

None of the mods are a worry in their own right but they would make me tread carefully with regard to the car's history.

The scenery is nice though :cool:

The rear valance is an M5 valance.
And rightly so. If the rear spoiler would be off aswell, it would be a good looking BT rear for a change. 518i rear bumper and ugly wing mess it up IMO

Also, silver is indeed v. cool for a BT. Adds to the sleeper image!

OK... I like the position:cool:
The kilometers seem to be original :blink:
But I dunno about the knob. It doesn´t look like it´s been done by Alpina :nono: so the seller is might be a little tuner :haha::haha::haha:

my 2 cent ---> zzzzz

Most certainly it is a re-build knob, but the best way to feel the health of that one, is to go there and drive it! :)
