And she's back. Me and Wayne at Beemabuild agreed to leave the jacking points until the summer but now there is no rust anywhere on any panel. Alpina spoiler looks mean.

 

Facelift Alpina SE front bumper vs Sport bumper....discuss!

Looks great but I think an SE rear bumper would be more in keeping with the rest of the car.  Anyway still looks great!

Thanks Mick, it needs dropping a bit at the rear and I'd like some spacers on the front

Yes buddy I see your point, the Sport rear is a tad aesthetically more pleasing but it's a fine line.

Looks really well

 

Sits well on those stunning alloys and the bumpers work very well IMO

 

The SE rear bumper makes the tourers look really dated; the sports bumper suits it so much better and the Alpina front bumper still looks understated and subtle

Chris, you have surpassed my efforts for saving 540 estates, they are excellent cars and yours looks brilliant - I would leave both the front and rear spoilers as now, like the wheels and enjoy your usual mass of work this spring.

great save of a great car.

Alpina Front looks classy. I'd ditch the fussy number plate surrounds and fit some nice plain plates for full effect.

Hi mate yes they are.

They are a more or less exact replica of the Style 5s

Have also added 15mm spacers to the front. The wheels were sitting too far into the arch
