My E70 with Alpina's

Hi All,

I have had my Alpina's sat in the garage since I sold The E53, I finally managed to get the correct spacers/reducers,thought you might be intrested in what they look like on the car.

Hi, They are 21x10front and 21x11.5rear, when I bought them new they cost 3500 with tyres, The spacers are 20mm and it is carbon black. The x goes in on tuesday to have the oval rear exhausts fitted, i will post pictures when it is done.

Sweet looking set up - I especially like seeing the lip of the rim from front or rear angles.

Rear lights

Carl, as I see you are across the pond, I have a question. I am on orders to Japan and am lining up everything I need to ship my 2008 X5 over. Japan has had an embargo in place which makes it painfully difficult to import a foreign vehicle. The last obstacle (as of now) is the requirement that turn signals have to be amber; the front is ok as has a amber bulb but the rear on the US versions have red lens. From your posted pictures, it looks like yours has amber on both the main lights as well as the lens on the rear hatch. Both of which makes it seem that a lens change is all that is needed. Does the hatch light do anything as in flash if hazards or turn signal is on?

Hi Ron,

Hope this helps, The bits that look amber are infact red (must be a trick of light)...the indicator is amber if you look at the attached picture where i have put the arrow this is the indicator...nothing on the rear hatch flashes. Enjoy the X when it arrives

Carl...thanks for the additional pic and explanation; after I sent you the PM, I went and looked at mine (US Spec) and saw the initial error of my ways--ie..camera just showed the two areas as amber looking; the location where your arrow points is the same location as our US ones...just our lens is red where yours is amber. Trying now to locate the Euro parts now.
Ron
