Alpina B7

Hi All, okay, completely random question, the valet today kept pronouncing Alpina as "Alpeena", I kept saying "Alpina" (pine)... I kept thinking why does he say it like that?? Then I got to thinking... (dangerous thing for a man to do), maybe I'm mispronouncing it....

Soooooo... which is it? This has been driving me nuts for the last 3 hours... V/r, Tim.

Thanks Chris, good to know Alpeena! I don't own the car unfortunately, I was merely waiting for friends at the front of the restaurant and saw a Merc S63 AMG, started talking to the valet about that car (oddly enough that car was 3 months old and still had the "tags" attached to the seats... Very strange), then the guy pointed out an Alpina parked nearby... I saw an Alpina at a nearby dealer months ago, and not sure I would get one (no offense to those who do own them) I wasn't caught up in it, and for me to own a car I have to sit in it and drool, and for whatever reason I didn't "feel" it with that car?

Thanks for that quick reply brother, I do appreciate it, V/r, Tim
