    the Alpina B7 is coming to the US (450 of them) sometime this fall @ about $120k

    C&D says it tied the R8 in the 1/4 mile (12.8) and then pulled away

    You know what is somewhat awesome, is the lack of visible valve stems in the wheels.

    Great for a finished look, pain in the ass to check/fill.

    90% of the people who buy BMW's will take their cars to the dealership for everything. BMW realizes this, and constructs their cars in such a way that half of the other 10% will become frustrated and go to the dealership as well . . .

    Yeah, but checking the air pressure in the tires needs to be done fairly often. Just like not being able to check the oil in the new BMWs. Thats total crap.

    W8 . . you cannot check the oil in them?

    I thought they had fancy sensors in them which would tell you the oil level from the car itself??
