Alpina B7 in Alpina Blue?

Seriously considering this car - http://www.globalautosports.com/car/...dan-70576.html

Was thinking about paying high 80's... Love the color and always wanted a 7.

What do you guys think? Classy?

That wood trim is a bit too bright/red for my tastes, especially paired with the beige interior.

I think it is damn ugly... Be better off buying a 750... Those wheels are horrendous.

This. Either darker wood or darker leather. That wood looks almost red.

I feel like an Alpina in Alpina Blue is like buying a red Ferrari. It's classic, but kind of obnoxious. That's why if I ever buy a Ferrari it'll be green or something else odd.

The wood panel is ugly imo but I think you could replace it with Alpina's piano black. If you do that I'm sure it'll be 1000000x better

Get the car! It's a sickly fast and comfy luxury missile. Just make sure the car still has its warranty left...

For that money why would you buy a used car when you could buy a brand new M5 for the same price and same HP and better technology ??

I own the 2013 B7 in Alpina Blue with the ivory white two-tone interior with the piano black trim. It's absolutely stunning and the only way to go for a B7 IMHO. Not flashy at all. Most people have no idea what I'm driving.

Alpina Blue is the only way to go. I have looked at that same car in person and it is beautiful. I have owned a B7 since 2009 and every person I know that has a 750 or an E55/e63 would trade for my Alpina in a heartbeat. It is the best road car I have ever owned.

Alpina blue all the way. We are looking at one with black interior and the red wood trim.

b7 is nice, the exterior color is subjective, but looks like crap paired with that interior. And like somebody else posted. New M5> Used Alpina
