Great stuff Alfred, I like the selection of pictures, that some have been cropped and the write-up was funny :-)

The video of me overtaking you on the inside is awesome, I just love it!

Do you have any video from when we were driving up to Alpina ? Of me pulling away from the B12

I see that the rear windows in the B12 are down, just like the CL and CLK Benz series'. Did every 8 Series have this feature?

Thanks and those pics are awesome. Wish I coulda been there

Yes. The front windows also go up automatically at 70-90mph....which always takes people by surprise!
