Beautiful car !! I just wish BMW would offer more Alpina models as I'd have likely picked the B5 over the M5 ;-)

For the most part it was ok, but parking garages and some cities were a pain to navigate with such big car. This is a pic from a garage in Italy. Even if the car fits in the spot it's really hard to navigate it in there b/c the "driveways" inside of the garages are so narrow. We thought there was enough space to the Jeep in the pic but we still had a door ding when we came back to get the car (ding should hopefully get fixed upon re-delivery).

Großglockner pass. We drove it just as it opened after a snow storm hence the wet and partial snowy roads. Beautiful scenery.

Nice - are you going to try and order the car with stripes? I think it would look really sharp and unique with the gold Alpina striping. http://www.auto-blog.pl/bmw-alpina-b7-biturbo-lwb/
