My only gripe is the cost, I just know before I even go and speak to Sytner that these will cost more than an M5 or M850i due to zero discounts and high APR finance. I totally get that Alpina do this on purpose as they don't want to sell higher volumes, just frustrating as I'd take one of these over the new M3, an M5...
I do get it, an M5 Comp is not much heavier, has a 530l boot and rear seats fold. Rwd on flick of a button... But it's an M5, for good and for worse. Maybe de-M5-ing it, find the most sheepish wheels that fit, debadge. And then proceed hiding those quad exhausts and put normal bumpers on it... The latter becomes too much for its own sake... Hard choices, if you have them.

Just lovely. I’ve never liked the Alpina stripes however. Seventies throwback on a modern car. But hardly a deal breaker. This over a Porsche all day long for me smile

Is it odd to covet one of these over a Porsche / Ferrari etc? There's just something about an Alpina that is very cool to me.
More useable?

Apart from the grill I quite like that. Great colour, love that green.

Me neither, but you can just order it without them...I just kept the front bumper set, which is a bit more subtle.
