                    Although I'm not a big Stanceworks fan, they did take a good shot of my car. I've since added the Alpina cowcatcher, but I took it back off because I kept hitting it against EVERYTHING.

                        Cardinal leather with Cardinal-ish speckled cloth inserts front and rear. Recaro fronts replaced factory sports. Custom armrest delete in the rear, since it's pointless.

                            My beater M5 before I sold it. Bought it in Chicago and made a road trip back to NY in it. Good times.

                                The problem is that I live in a very old house with the original very narrow driveway. The curbs on either side when entering seem to lay in wait for me. I need to line up pretty carefully to avoid them. Let just say I haven't been very careful.
                                I'm very open about the fact that My car is a "Tribute". It started life as an '88 535is. Of course, regardless of model, the proof is whether it ever was in Buchloe and if they say it's real. Even though I sourced the same parts that they would have used, I can't claim it as authentic. I can't call it a "Clone" either, since my choice of colors was never offered by Alpina. Also, technically it should be a B10. Oh well, just a rebel I guess.
