e3 3.0si questions

I am looking at a bmw e3 which is not currently running and i had some questions.

First of all, are these alpina rims or just old turbines?

And, being that the body is straight with no rust (desert car) any idea about whether or not it is a good buy for 600 bucks?

The interior is pretty dingy, but the chrome is fine and there are no dents or rust

Mostly wondering about if they are alpina's so that if i get frustrated and give up i can at least sell them and get some money back.

Heres the pic

The wheels in that photo do not appear to be Alpina's.
You'll need to verify by looking at the recessed open lug area for a stamped Alpina name. Most likely those are the standard issue turbine which may get you a few bucks at the scrap yard.
