New wintertoy (or must I say a new familycar…) { 0 }

It took me a while to get an other car but the delay had everything to do with the total renovation of our house. About 4 months ago we got the frontdoorkeys from the second owner since 1926 of this lovely little house and now our cottage is almost like we want it to be. Almost, because the decoration and interior will swallow up at least 2 more months and, more important, our last savings. Since my pockets are almost empty now I had to find an affordable but decent car. And it had to be an Alpina again. With an autobox. So that’s what I found last week: an ’98 Alpina B10 V8 Touring black on black with full options like electrical and heated leather seats with memory, a glas sunroof, doubleglass windows, self leveling suspension, navi, climate control etc. It had done 185.500 km when I bought it (not much since the car is almost 14 years old; that is only 14.000 km per year!) and after the ride home the odometer showed 187.000 km (it was again a long trip home). But no problem for this beauty since it was maintained and serviced maniacally; a large map containing every service invoice of the last 10 years including a fully stamped servicebook (16 stamps) was found in the glovecompartment. On top of that the boot was packed with a nice set of wintertyres on 18″ alloys. Ofcourse the car is totally in its first paint and was never involved in any accident. So I thinkĀ a very nice and decent supertouring indeed!

P.S. Due to a very nice opportunity I have to let go of my fabulous Touring already. Just finished her with some new tyres, oil, filters, bushes, cables, hoses etc. (cost me a small fortune) but sometimes a certain car comes onto the market and then I just have to get it :-) !
