God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

In Germany and want to buy Alpina tachometer

I'm in Germany studying brods for school. (Lucky me I know) I have 800 euros to spend whatever I want. So,
I want to buy an alpina tachometer. what's the highest I should pay for it? It's on a germany bidding website.

It's a legit one and everything, the dude says it's a VDO, no cracks, no fault.. so is it a straight plug and play? Like the American tachs
Let me now asap!

I don't know the answer to your question.

Why don't you get an Aplina tach strip for 12 Euros?

Or are you talking about the vent gauge? If so, you can get the Podi from Guten Parts.

IMO, unless you are restoring an Alpina car or building a clone, it's not worth the expense.

If it somehow improved performance, maybe I would pay an exorbitant amount.

Alpina's were quite popular in Germany 25 or so years ago.
I worked for Lotec and had 2 ex Alpina guys work with me.
so I would not think this item to be extremely scarce.
If you like it nuy it
