WOW! She looks fantastic Ashok, congratulations on the new beast!! From what I've been reading she's rated to be one of the best daily drive cars in England! Knowing Alpina's record I'm sure she's fantastic to drive too.

Can you please post an ownership review too?

What happens to the two beasts? Care to donate one to me? I'll take either

P.S. Those Alpina Classic wheels look the business, simply fantastic! 19"s aren't they?

IIRC, he had exchanged the E39 for the E60. So maybe you wouldn't have a choice if he is donating

Here are the specs:

2.0L 4-cyl Diesel engine
Power: 200 bhp @ 4000 rpm!
Torque: 410 Nm @ 2000 rpm!
Transm: 6-speed manual
0-100 kmph: 7.4 secs
Top Speed: 238 kmph

That's over 100bhp/litre from a DIESEL engine! And she's a beast alright!

Excellent car Ashok, I have been seeing your cars on M5Board.com. I haven't been there recently, but I thought you were going for a Alpina B5?
