This site has a listing for a Alpina B7, but it doesnt look like it. I even checked the Vin and it says it is a Alpina. So what gives is this acutally a B7?

Exhaust says it is not an Alpina! Alpina has a bigger exhaust

It's not alpina - just a regular 7 series with M sport package.

Many VIN decoders can't differentiate between the B7 and regular 7-series models, so you'll have to check BMW VIN decoders to confirm. Insurance quotes also sometimes have the same problem.

Regardless whether it's an Alpina, that's a 2012 with the N63 so it's definitely something you should stay far far away from.
