I don't take your opinions personally- even though you are dead wrong about the B3...
And perhaps I'll need to revisit that opinion. I didn't realize that Alpina is more oriented towards the GT buyer (vs. the sport buyer that Motorsport targets).

It took a bit of research for me to discover that as well. In fact, BMW and Alpina have agreed that Alpina will not build Alpina editions of any M car.

in another discussion I'm sure all of you read, pictures wider than the text area have to be deleted.
And another one bites the dust.

I've got a thing for the E28 M5 - always have loved it. I've been tempted by a couple of clean ones over the years, but the maintenance and relative lack of factory and aftermarket support steered me to the E30 instead.
My years with an E24 M6 got me wired into the S38 support networks, so I would feel fairly comfortable buying one.
I've always loved the E30 M3 too, so it's hardly a penalty box.
I may yet follow Mark Jon's example and build a DTM replica. Though it might wind up being an E24 Jagermeister car.
E36 M Coupe?!?! Nice car, fast and rare, but not exactly "vintage."
One enthusiast's "vintage auto" is another's "used car"...
The Nissan GT-R looks way cool - if only it came with 3 pedals.
Agreed, but I'd still like to accumulate some seat time in one...

Today is a great day for me and my mini-van sized 330xi. 6 - 10" inches is right in my ballpark.
