Love the new wheels, but the alpina version of E92/93 is not as nice as the E90/91...

Maybe i'm weird but I don't get what's the big deal about the alpinas...
Alpina is one of the BMW tuners with the longest history - they started modifying BMW in the late 60's and have had close relationship with BMW in R&D. For instance was the engine in the Alpina D10 was the predecessor to the 535d and 335d.

And the "wierd badge" has a crankshaft and a weber carburator on it - again a symbol of the earliest Alpinas.

I like them a lot
