Last week we went back to the Alps according to annual tradition.
2650 km in 6 days, of which only 700 km on the highway.
This year it seemed like the taxi edition with the following cars:
E28 with E34 M5 engine
Mercedes E320 Lotec Turbo with AMG chassis
E28 M535i Turbo
my E28 with Alpina block
Porsche 911 SC Targa

In terms of weather we have literally had everything, with snow on the bargain.
I was happy with the new Michelin Pilot Sport tires, changed to Alpina 17" wheels
Furthermore, the E28 has done well again! And this year no damage :D
Most of the photos were taken from the car, so apologies for the lesser quality

At the beginning of this year I also bought another E28, a known one from the forum here.
I swapped the wheels of this E28 with those of the M535i Turbo in the pictures. Can anyone guess which E28 I bought? :)

Amazing annual trip with spectacular photos as always! Send us a link to your new acquisition. Also, I'm sure it will be a project. Hope to see that here too.

HA! I guess he won't get buried in it like he says he'd like to in the video. Hard to improve on this car, but looking forward to seeing it.

Plus one- excited to see how you tend to it. Also curious of its current condition. Pics?

Was watching this video yesterday and wondered what it would take for this guy to sell his car. 2nd owner- congrats!

The third owner ;)

I bought the car in the Netherlands, the previous owner had it for 2 years, but he didn't put 500 extra miles on it...

I want to begin with the interior, restore the original leather, paint it in the original color.
There are also a lot of parts from the suspension and gear lever that have wear, the car feels "tired"
Also is the engine not running 100%, thinking about a standalone ECU swap.

When mechanics and interior are done, it wil have a complete respray in the original black.

so i won't get bored the first year ;)

Those photos really make me miss that part of the world. I can’t wait to get back there.
I love what you’ve done to your car, very nice upgrades. Do you plan to machine center caps for your 17” wheels like you did for your previous ones? And congratulations on your new purchase. I look forward to seeing the progress.

Thx Kapt!
Yes, New machined centre caps are in the make.
I also have the gold Alpina stiping and badges to make it complete ;)
