While the alpina H1's supercharger by itself lists for $10k. If one were to find a wrecked B7 and swap everything, it appears the only issue would be DME tuning and relocating the PS reservoir and the expansion tank.

I don't have FB so I cant chime in there in defense for the H1... Although it very well be a crap of a supercharger it still provides a good foundation to upgrade from there.

relocation of the reservoirs is the least of the worries. Plenty of room behind the bumper for a decent size front mount, piping is another story.. maybe run a water to air cooler instead??

I always wondered about a top mount such as a whipple SC..

Alpine H1 is a good idea on paper, but not very practical. The entire block is proprietary. It is not just a modified 4.4. It would be much more difficult, then even modifiying a 5/6/7 series kit to the X5. Not to mention the complications with the xDrive that Alpina’s never had.

wonder how much it would be to piece everything together yourself. My guess would be the bracket being the hardest part

I did see that alpina claimed the block as their design, but didn't think it was an entirely new block.
Best bet may be to just swap an B7 motor into the damn thing then. Lol.
