Mein Auto: Alpina B7
Many brand new Alpina B7 qoute below $100,000 (is this real?)

I just run a search on Cars.com for 2011 Alpina B7,
Some of the dealer offer the car at regular MSRP price,

BUT

I found many dealers quote a brand new 2011 Alpina B7 at around low $90K to $100K.(there are 11 cars offered at below $100,000)
This is BIZZARE, because that mean it is even cheaper than the Invoice Price.

Is this price for real ?
or
the dealers just playing tricks just to make you to contact them ?

Did you look at any of those listings? Many have file photos, but every single one with pic that is under $100k is just a regular 750i/Li. I wonder if Cars.com has some type of VIN decoding error that is pulling 750's into their database as a B7?

Well, I check the dealer's own website,
and those website listed the Alpina B7 with
the same price as listed on Cars.com
So all those bargain price data was sourced from the dealer directly.
Check this link:

Someone needs to order one of these QUICK and then deal with the fall out when it comes in but isn't a B7. I can see where the error could come from in that the B7 starts out as a "regular" SWB 7-series but then get's essentially rebuilt by Alpina. If they just take the initial VIN code, they may not realize it's not a B7, right?

The cars listed are not alpina's- there are no aplina AWD in the US yet. So the prices are correct but the Alpina is wrong, they are normal F01/F02s

Yeah - seems like the dealer is just fishing for inbound calls with a B7 Ad for a 'regular' 750i

How do you know this, would be great if you could clarify.

B7 for the price of a 750LI no brainer - but too good to be true.

Called Wagner BMW of Shrewsbury to enquire about those Alpinas and i was told they have received dozens of calls about those cars and it's actually a misprint because they're all regular 7 series. They (Wagner BMW of Shrewsbury) DO NOT have any ALPINAs in stock.
