It's a little bit of a "sleeper". Original interior, blue. Very nice interior overall. The only thing I will tune on this car is the suspension. Koni sport shocks isn't that good. Coil overs and some other suspension related parts has to be bought in the nearby future ;-)

Requesting details on the S38B38 heart please!
Is it a stock motor with tuned ECU or different engine management or do you have different internals (cams, etc...)

Thanks.

Sorry for a late rely!

It was a tuned ECU. The cylinder head was tuned and it was giving 384.5hp output. Seems like better breathing is the shit! ;-)

However, it's sold now and I miss it. The Alpina B7 Turbo gives a lot of joy and as soon as my BMW 2002 Alpina Replica" is up and going I have enough cars anyway! :D

Cheers, Michael

True, and that engine has a known breathing problem so it's easy to gain som horse powers just by 'open up' the air ways a little bit :cool:.

Yeah. I was pointing out to Carter that it isn't a 110hp gain being claimed (I'd raise an eyebrow at such a claim as well.) I don't think he realized it was a B38 engine.
