The 318 IS is my car and is not a fake it has only genuine alpina bits and is not badged as a b3 so its not pretending to be anything other than a bmw with genuine accessories i thought it would make up numbers and give my wife a car to bring but i will leave at home.

let the man's wife take her car for goodness sake! i bet she was looking forward to it and has now had her dreams shot. people who have alpina fakes are the genuine alpina buyers of the future and we should encourage them into the fold. after all it may be one of them who buys your car when you want to sell.

That ain't gonna happen!

Alpina46's original description of his 318 IS was "B3 replica", which gave the impression that it was pretending to be something it wasn't, but now we have the full story that puts a different light on it.

Makes me laugh when you think of it, most pre-B3 cars are "Alpina fakes" as they were built by Sytners with factory approval. Mind you they have no record of the UK builds....
Think that snobery has to stop.

Right on that note I won't be attending due to honeymoon commitments ... with the B8!

So any BMW not built in Germany is also a fake by that logic.

Hello everyone,

Just arrived from Neil's Fastsaloons forum.

Just to let you know that I plan to be at the meet with my B3S Touring which is one of only nine in the UK and the first privately registered one (back in March 2003).

I will do everything I can to drum up support from the other site (I am a moderator on the Alpina section) as it would be great to have as many Alpina's as possible.

Neil and I were at Sytners in Nottingham yesterday morning chatting to Ged Scanlon and he will do his best to lay on something interesting if he can.

Must dash for now - looking forward to making some new friends here

Take care

Sorry, but Sytner Alpina's are NOT fakes! Genuine Alpina cars with Alpina's approval, converted in the same manner as the cars from Buchloe.

I know, still not 100% convinced since Rover are after all going bust ....

Only winding you lot up! :crying: Would still be interesting to put same model side by side and play spot the difference (steering wheel excepted!) ouich
