You are paying to much for your Alpina parts. I paid 233.28 euros for the joint that connects the two pieces of the exhaust from Alpina.
I guess I am. I’m curious how long ago you bought this and do you have a good source for parts you’d like to share? Luckily I needed very few Alpina parts.

About 14 months ago. Just let me know what you need and can add it to my next order.

Have either of you replaced your radiator?
If so what did you use as replacement?
Mine had a replacement done by dinan back in 2000 n has a Nissens 60602 tag on it.
Nissens does have a 60602A ,but not sure what if any difference there is between them. Trying to find out.
Looking to change mine out.
Thx

I used a South African Behr radiator. The B7 uses the same radiator as the 535i/635CSi.

I have not been on this site in a very long time. A very nice build here. I own #116 approx 92k miles and it looks to be identical to yours Color and stripes except mine has pearl beige interior and AC. I see yours has the same diff as mine, the larger one without the cooler. I have owned mine approx 14yrs, 3rd owner. Restored as well. Congrats on your build I look forward to keeping an eye on this one.

Thanks David and RoyW.

David, I referenced your outstanding ride many times when I was deciding between the silver or gold stripes on diamondschwarz. It would be fun to park these twins next to one another some day.
