    Alpina . . .

    . . . love these cars

    Kindova under-ground thing, even among Propellor Heads --- Alpinas 've always had a much-lower profile that other German 'tuners' (like AMG or Hartge or Ruf), anyway . . . but their cars are pretty distinctive and have a reputation more for refinement if not all-out performance

    Their cars 're only sold here in NA as big-ticket sedans or sports cars. A handful of personal-imports 'll show-up at car shows, but most of my exposure to Alpina is from seeing their distinctive road wheels on older BMW 3-series. Did put some of their suspension bits on an old e21 . . . and totally transformed the way it handled

    Anyway, seems that Alpinas are getting more-and-more attention, these days --- and I've always like 'em, anyway . . . so? . . .

    Too late, Alpina Brand was sold to BMW a couple of weeks ago. In future they will be focussing on classics under a new Brand name.
    But Alpina was THE Benchmark for customer service.
