Well i picked this up at the weekend, why on earth i did i don't know Laughing but i don't do that many miles so hopefully the mpg won't be too much of an issue. So far it seems good! Absolute luxury inside! And hell it does get a shift on when it wants to lol!

It had a load of stickers all over it when i got it, advertising the guys alloy wheel company but i have removed all of these now.

Pics from the advert

How it is now on the drive way

Im aware that i probably look like a drug dealer driving around, but im not! And i doubt i shall keep it for a huge amount of time purely because of running costs but it will be a bit of fun Very Happy

That's sick! Really like that, dude, always liked E38's - but i am a barge fan! And at least im not the only local drug dealer-looking person in Soham!

I just need some 19/20's on the CL! Thumbs up

That's beautiful dude Cool

In my village there's a couple of warehouses with old F1 machinery and classics, there's about 12 Alpinas that bomb about, two of them being E38s; a 5.7 and a 6.0 E-Kat Cool

If you can get better than 17.9 you'll be beating me! thats the best I can get out of our Range Rover with the same engine, and 19.9 is my max in the CL haha

Wish those wheels were 5x112, i'd be asking to have them off you lol!

Did a bit of googling today and to my dismay i found my car has been featured in the thread on pistonheads 'horrors in the ph classifieds' Laughing it was up for sale earlier in the year advertised on pistonheads and ebay.. it didnt sell. This is what it looked like back then.. 22'' wheels i think affraid

The 740  Bm2

Safe to say, it won't be looking like that ever again while i own it lol!
