First REAL Life Shots Of F01 2011 Alpina B7 From Chicago

Definitely an impressive piece of machinery with a unique interior...

Oh yes! These photos are the first I've seen that do this magnificent car justice.



The massive 21-inch "Classic" Alpina wheels are the perfect compliment to the huge snout on the F01.



I'd love to see it in Black, Gray or Silver. Particularly with the black wheel option.

I think that can be adjusted under the hood. Mine definitely doesn't have that issue. I was always wondering what people were referring to here on this forum when they talked about this big gap. This is the first image I have seen that shows the gap!

Here is an image of my car and as you can see, the gaps on the hood are the same on each side.

It should be an easy fix to get the gap to the same size....

Come to think of it, I think there are two hooks to keep the hood locked down. One just to the left and right of the kidney grills. It looks almost like someone forgot to push the hood down on the passenger side and the hook hasn't latched in yet. I believe there are also two springs that push the hood up a bit, so if the passenger side hook hasn't latched in, the spring would definitely push up the hood on that side! I think that's probably what we are seeing in that picture above of the frontal view of the B7!

Agreed. Somebody just didn't press down on the hood on the passenger side when that particular photo was shot.

Here's another photo of the same car with no discernible hood gap.

I had a look under the hood of mine on Monday and there are a bunch of places and adjustments that can be made to adjust the gaps of the hood, so if your car has an uneven gap, it should be a simple matter of turning a few knobs/rubber bumpers and/or screws to get that taken care of
