Alpina B12 5.0 FOR SALE
Before I start, I kindly want to ask: NO tire kickers / test drivers or unrelated posts. I am in NO HURRY to sell it, so please avoid trades or unreasonable offers.
For sale is my 1990 Alpina B12 (#128 of 305). The car currently has ~104500 km and is in rust free, mint condition (quote the professional appraisal "clean as a whistle"). I've had this car for almost 3 years and spared nothing when it came to having it in showroom (close to new) condition.
Looking on various sites, condition-wise this seems to be one of the best Alpina B12s left in the world, with one of the lowest mileage (most are around 200k - 350k). I replaced more than I should have, but my dream was to have it in close to brand new condition. Here it goes:

PROBLEMS (may fix these if I find some time)
- A/C doesn’t work
- Slight dent on one of the front rims
- Tiny (few milimeters) crack of the paint on the hood - not easily noticeable
- Driver’s head rest doesn’t go up (though it did last year – should be an easy fix as the motor is working)
The car has a limited production/classic car insurance of 177 per YEAR (10000 km/year and $1 million medical coverage). I will upload some more pictures on picassa or other website in the following days.
Price: 33000 CAD
-ONLY SERIOUS BUYERS-
O.M.G. Screw the colour, Interested in a trade :D
Thanks a lot for the nice comments, but I don't want to trade it.
Another note: the car was driven for a little bit before taking the pictures. The carpets aren't stained; only slightly dirty at the time I took the pictures. Same goes with the tires.
I should polish it and take other pictures, but it all depends on the weather now.
very rare !!!
Amazing car!!! With the SWB it looks so much better, almost like an E34!
:O Why are you selling it Paul?!
Thanks! :) Well, Flaviu to be honest I love this car and if I get the price...I'll sell it, if not I'll gladly keep it. The biggest problem is that:
- I don't drive it in the winter to keep it salt/rust free
- I don't leave it in parking lots to avoid door/shopping cart/purse hits :)
- I don't drive it when it's too busy so I don't get rear ended by anyone
Other than that...in the few kms/year I love it :)
