The pinstripes are indeed from the 80's, and I agree they do not flow well with the lines of the newer BMWs. That being said, the pinstripes are optional. I am a bit biased since I grew up in the 80's and am aware of all the great cars Alpina has created. One of the greatest cars Alpina built is the original '89 B10 Biturbo, a 180mph sedan that would take down many exotics of the time. I cannot begin to explain how awesome this car was when it came out. That being said, the "BiTurbo" name is quite sacred among old school BMW enthusiasts.
