That's some odd wiring in the engine bay, hopefully that was only temporary.
Yes, this is my first Alpina auto, but the great thing in life is to have good friends and connections, so if for any reason I feel that the Switchtronic tranny is not up to par with the performance, I could always ask Mike and Jay at SF to plant in a 6 speed tranny. honestly that is not as bad, because I read and researched about this 5 speed Swichtchtronic tranny, the consensus are that over all its a great and responsive tranny, and I guess I will find out soon.
