slow.e39 posted a topic in Car RacingDo you think that the car community/hooning culture is over represented in accident statistics? Why? What would you say in defense? What is more prevalent and why do you think we hear about it less? Im writing a research paper and would really appreciate some input!
Future Alpina BMWs?
sonnyjim posted a topic in European ManufacturersIdk if you guys know Alpina, basically they tune BMW M cars and make them more comfortable and luxurious (link). They currently make a range of models, from the B3 (based on the 3er) to the B7 (based on the 7er) to the XD3 (based on the X3). Just wondering what the community thought might be future targets for the company, given that it would probably have to be something related to BMW. Personally I was thinking perhaps something based off a Mini, given that BMW owns them? Sort of a fast posh city runabout... Or maybe something with the i3 or i8?
I'm extremely excited to be buying myself my first car soon! I do know a bit about cars but I definitely wouldn't say I'm an expert! So i thought i would ask here to see if you guys could help I've looked around loads and decided between either a 2007 Alpina BMW D3 or a 2005 Mercedes Slk 280. They're both in great condition with low milleage and I'm looking to see if anyone knows what they're like to live with on a daily basis etc. I don't have any regular long distance journeys to make and I've not got kids/pets or anything that would make either car impractical if that helps. I don't know a great deal about the Alpina, but if anyone has anything helpful to say on either car it would be much appreciated! Thanks!
