On a recent trip with Park and Watanabe-san to the SuperAutobacs near Kashiwa we encountered this stunner. I’m not as informed as other when it comes to everything BMW but I haven’t seen anything of the Alpina line in America. It was only the M series that stood out there. But here in Japan it seems that the M is standard, at least I think Japanese people have a certain mind set where they want to have the best of the best, but who knows. I occasionally see a 3 series Alpina’s and there is actually a guy that lives near me with a British Racing Green 5 series Alpina so I seem him once in a while.
