Default 2008 Alpina B7

Hello and best of luck to the new Can-Am Alpina Club!

I live in Tulsa Oklahoma and have an Alpina B7. She's Alpina Blue II with Cream Interior and fully loaded.

Any other Alpina owners in Tulsa?

Welcome aboard JudGudgel, I think you're the owner of the newest Alpina on the board so far. I see you want your next Alpina to be a 2012 B7 so you must be happy with it.

Post some pics in an album (click on Community in the top menu) so we can see that beauty.

Absolutely love it! Alpina/BMW hit a home run with the E65 B7. The 500 hp and 516 ft lbs of torque feels like the power is never ending!

Handling of the B7 is also amazing; feels like it's running on rails!

Yes I do get questioned pretty much every time I fill up at the gas station. Although I get questions from the looks and emblems of the Alpina, the questions I enjoy most are from the Mustang and Vette owners that try and play on the highway and loose every time to the Supercharged 500HP B7.

The Alpina's are rare in the US, I believe there were approximately 800 sold in 2007/2008 in the US (mine is number 746). I've only seen one other B7 in Tulsa and none of the older Alpina's.
