    Working one summer for a local Homeless shelter, they were accepting donations one week and someone donated an 1970’s Alpina 6 series. I drove it a little but it wasn’t something I was allowed to purchase, unfortunately. It need some love but it worked.

    This channel is obviously of interest to men and since HAIR LOSS is a topic of major interest to MEN, I post this comment. Google the MALINIAK METHOD and learn about a NEW science, which explains that the main cause of HAIR LOSS is not DHT but a blockage of BLOOD FLOW caused by a tight LOWER scalp layer. This causes DHT to be over-produced and only then it becomes the “ killer ” of hair. The OLD methods have failed because they focus only on DHT and not on the MAIN cause…now we know why they all failed. We only go bald on top where this layer exists and only people with a very tight layer lose their hair. This method explains how to restore the blood flow properly with a NEW massage technique that is totally different from how it was done before and how to REVIVE dormant follicles with a device invented by NIKOLA TESLA which we were told was not possible and that’s FALSE . The hair loss syndrome is finally explained properly and this method uses NO DRUGS, NO LOTIONS and NO SURGERY.

    I think the green stitching on the wheel is meant to correspond to the not present green alpina stripe that would be across the car it seems most the past b7s usually had green alpina script stripes down them

    Doug the type of guy to use "performancy" in casual conversation.


    Would love to see the rear sunroof being able to open. Still not sold on the two seats as looking at the big wedge of plastic on the floor. I am sure that someone could at least put a bit of thought into this bit. Definitely a challenger to the Range Rovers as they may have the best four wheel drive, but is let down with some stupid issues and some may not like to swap over to the BMW, but let’s not forget that Range Rover have never been challenged as much until now.

  • leborde

    OK, so you keep comparing this to an M version, but it is not at all. M is about sport, radically and, ultimately, it sacrifices on confort. Alpina is not. Alpina is more about performance but luxury oriented. For example, suspicions are tunes but for more comfort. On an Alpina, kids can sleep on the couch while you're driving 300 km/h (180mph); you can't do that on an M. Another example: the E39 M5 was manual, while the Alpina B10 was already having the in-steering tiptronic (soft button behind the wheel, not paddle shifters). The + and - were stitched on the wheel. And about the green stitching, it has always been the mark of Alpina. In fact, their default body colors are Alpinablau (bleu) and green. And when they do special versions, like B3 GT3, it comes green. Typically, an Alpina will be below an M in terms of pure perf (except Vmax where Alpina holds several records), but way above in terms of luxury, class and comfort. And all Alpina are normally coming with a serial number plaque in the cabin.

    Even if there was an M version, I still think the Alpina is cooler.

  • Atomic Penguin

    6:58 From Alpina's website: "The traditional colours of Blue and Green are irreversibly associated with our company." You can find examples of that in the stitching on some previous Alpina models but you can often see it was green AND blue interwoven - so two colours, not one like here.

  • Thatguyujustmet

    If you buy one you can come pick it up at Plant Spartanburg here in SC. BMW will give you a free tour, hotel setup, dinner, and track day with M3s, X5s, etc. The next morning you drive home in your new car. Pretty cool stuff.

  • Thatguyujustmet

    That’s right boys, you can set your car to turn on the air conditioning by flicking it off.

    So Doug, instead of climbing between the pilot seats, moves them forward to climb in behind.

    I feel like this car is going to be so unreliable after 3 years and just end up as landfill. It seems so wasteful, it’s a shame car companies can contribute so much pollution and not, just for the sake of example, make something as reliable as an LS400 or 430 so that the vehicle is used for a much longer length of time.

  • MH0709

    Alpina are known to over-state the HP figures by a lot - I would be very surprised if this engine made 580HP, and guess it made nearer 560HP. However, the torque is better for normal driving. Nice that they put charging ports next to the drink holders! Idiots.

  • MrWolf2.0

  • Fenze

    Yes another stupid and ugly bmw.

  • Captain

    The automatic window im sure is super useful when you arrive at work where you usually have to scan your ID tag or brick to open the garage door etc etc, or any other public garage door or gate that you frequent often

  • 7071t6

    your full of total and utter BS doug, any SUV with its tail gate up you can sit on the back full stop?

  • 7071t6

    In less than 3 years the same SUV will be around 75K, depending on miles or kms on the clock, with average KM's or miles 75K + the massive amount of cost for parts and servicing costs as well? You need at least 10K each year just to make sure you can cover the costs of repairs, but more importantly not one person buys these cars they all lease them via BMW, so each new models is upgraded with minimal extra cost, plus tax shelter extras as well? ADD a extra 100K for amour protection as well. :)
