Well, Alex325i sold his M3 cos he's getting married. I guess I will wait for AlexB to get married...
But seriously, I have been thinking of becoming an Alpina dealer in Singapore and neighbouring countries too, if I do return for good. I have made a couple of observations from this recent trip already.
1.Alpina doesn't have a distributor in Asia (except Japan). And that one cannot import the cars out of Japan either.
2.Performance Motors Limited (S'pore only BMW dealer) sells and warrants ACS accessories only. Hence I need to jump at the chance of being an Alpina dealer before they do.
3. Land Transport Authority of S'pore discourages aftermarket modifications. This includes (believe it or not) upsizing wheels from 17" to 18". Freaky but true.
Unless the 18" comes with the car from the factory.
I probably need a small showroom to display a B3 and a B10. A bar to display some Alpina wine. And a corner for my own model collection.
China might be the BIG market too. In fact, BMW sells really well in China already.
Vince, when are you going to get a REAL Alpina? :dunno:
