3500? In germany alone the rims are worth 2k... So I think it's an extremly good price... And yes it's expensive to repair.

Would it not make more sense to take all of these shitheaps and employ one person to just strip them down and sell the parts online or wherever? Surely you could make a bit of money selling these overpriced plastic junk heaps piece by piece? Foe instance, what would a set of those lovely looking seats be worth? How much for the light clusters? Cylinder head? Crank? Gearbox? Axle? Hell, get some young kid that is interested in learning about cars, pay him a bit more than minimum wage and let him strip 'em and clean them up.

Much respect to my fellow automotive technician for his philanthropy. You my friend, make us look good. This is the second time I've seen him donate to St. Judes. Because of that, I too will make a donation to St Judes in rye very near future. Thank you kind sir.

Good deal great car but you pay for BMW no Volkswagen. BMW Alpina for this price it’s a cheap price for a great car
PhigoDakidd Prije 6 mjeseci
I know I'm late now for the B7, but in the future you get a bad engine car like this, I'll be glad to take it and Fix it and Of Course Document it. Instead of sending it to go to waste at the Junkyard.

Never ever call an alpina an bmw bc its not! It's not a factory tuning brand or something like AMG. Alpina is a car brand with his own logo etc...

>$110k to $3,500. Just think how much work $110k could do over the same time period versus flushing it down the toilet.

sorry if I'm late to the party, but watching your vids, the 1st question that keeps popping up is, what r these cars service history? i find it hard 2 believe that companies like mb,bmw, audi, and even rolls royce, would make cars that can barely last 5yrs. I've heard that the early 20's cars were sketchy, but it's actually a shock if these r the norms rather than the exception.

In difference to BMW M, Audi RS or Mercedes AMG, when you look into an Alpina's paperwork it'll say "Alpina", not BMW. Plus, at least over here in germany, they don't run BMW badges.

BMW = Bust My Wallet .... I know they perform well but I've heard too many horror stories. They are for yuppies who lease them then turn them in when the warrantee ends and get a new one. Apparently there are still suckers out there who think they need a used BMW so these leased vehicles get a second life but an expensive one. They become money pits.

If that B7 would have been for sale near me (As is), I would have bought it in a flash!! But then I know what I am doing and I am an experienced vehicle technician that has worked on plenty of BMW's right back to the early 90's! Keeping my eye's peeled!

BMW is still in its low quality spurr. Not buying one at all ever until proven otherwise again. subframe issues, HPFP issues, valve stem seals issue, transmission issue. Just trash shit not meant to be owned outside of a lease
