Alpina did it. They did it! They found the way to make an otherwise stunning 6 gran coupe design, AVERAGE!!!

Don't know why BMW don't offer any greens. Every car looks good in a nice green.

Very nice! Thanks for posting.

Classy cars without doubts. And the green... Kind of looks ok on the 4series (I'd skip the golden stripes though).

There is a great review of this D4 on yt... They say it's a beast

What is going on with the ride height? They somehow manages to make the B5 less aggressive than a normal 5 series. Just look at the rear track.

If they would bring the b3 in Canada, I would order it yesterday.
Just to get a different and rich color and a more carefully build automobile.

It takes time. Trust me, I absolutely despised the wheels for years. Eventually, it makes sense. One of my must haves on the bucket list. I can not express how much I love Alpina's.
My M was able to take a few selfies with a B7 recently...

I like how they look upper class, with so many BMW's on the road nowadays, they look too normal in all honesty, besides the M series of course, the craftsmanship seems top notch, and that XD3 is looking nice with the LCI updates.

Yes change is hard but sometimes you have to break habit and move on. Case in point, these awful rims. Time to retire them IMO.

Yeap, the only thing I can focus on are the awful rims. They divert my attention from how boring the rest of the car looks.
