Got my Alpina B5S picked up :) 3 hours later i was doing 330 lol (clip inside).

So i got this Alpina B5S, i must say i did underestimate it A LOT!
Car has full option, will put up a list soon.

Was driving on snow with 20" summer tires which i can tell is the most stupid thing i've ever done lol. From Stuttgart to Hamburg, when i finally reached Kassel, the road cleared up and the digital screens on the autobahn showed the speedlovers sign, no restriction!

First i did some pulls in 3rd and 4th gear and i got scared lol, then i got into mad mode and this is what happend:

Well it could do even more, head-up display showed 330 on this run. Also did 326 in a curve at the Hamburg-Lübeck streck.

Road etc. wasn't optimal for those speeds i can tell, there was snow on the sides lol and i'm driving this beast on summertires(not that wintertires would be any better at those speeds lol). In a month or two i'll see how much this beauty can do on GPS, pretty sure it should exceed 320.

How much a B5s keeps pulling at high speed is quite disconcerting. It's composure while doing it is also rather good.

I wish there is an open road long enough here for me to give it a try. Maybe Lusail race track is a far better option!

Agreed. I guess I have to drive my B5s harder and keep it healthy. It has been at dealer's workshop for more than a month due to mysterious misfire at start-up. Hope to get it back before the next track day!

Hamburg Lubeck stretch is so awesome. So youi live north of Hamburg? Lubeck to Puttgarten is win My favourite stretc. Hannover Hamburg is also great.
