Looks good! How do you decide which car to drive on a nice spring day?

Looking forward to seeing the B10 at a meet one of these days...

How come my Alpina didn't come with those?

Nice review. Do you find your B10 has a lumpy idle? It seems to be a common complaint of the B8 and I was just wondering if it's the same with the 4.6 in the B10.

Here some pics of my B10 taken by professional photographer on Tail Of Dragon or Hwy 129 which is a 16 Km stretch of road in mountains in US and 320 twisty turns. Enjoy!!!

Thank you very much; this car was belonging to a super enthusiast gentleman in Germany. The reason I said that was because he ordered this car light weight, which means that most of the electrical or automatic functions and options that normally come with the e39 was deleted, for instance slick top (no sunroof), manual sport seats and no memory seat function, manual steering column, no navigation and more in order to keep the weight down as mush as possible.
Paperwork shows that before the shipping company deliver the car on the ship they have weight the car at 1480 KG with only half quarter tank of gas. So if you add the full tank of gas 80 L the complete weight will add up to 1560 KG which would translate to 3440 LB which makes this B10 a really fun car to drive.
