I can't believe you've done this. Not so great looking, although I am biased because I think the facelifted 7 looks like crap.

I think the 760 exhaust tips look a LOT better

Sorry bud - I dont thinks that is an Alpina B7 - thats a bad picture of a "wannabe" (I could be wrong) but...
No Alpina logos in the rears, the exhaust is not the same, the ALPINA ground kit is not there...
I see a plain 09 7 series with an accessory in the trunk and Alpina wheels.

Here is a picture of an Alpina - and its specs.
544 Horses and 0 to 60 in 4.2 seconds i believe... Check it out...

http://www.lincah.com/2009-bmw-alpina-b7-bi-turbo

I myself this it is perfection - but I have an 09 on order as well.
Compare!

The link he posted shows a black version of the 2009 Alpina B7

It has the same exhausts, same rims/wheels, same spoiler on the trunk. The only thing is doesn't show is the badges on the back that identify it as an Alpina B7, other than that, from the angle that this picture was taken from, I would say it either is an Alpina B7 or someone changed the exhaust and rims and added a Alpina spoiler to their stock 750

The Alpina B7 is by far the nicest looking of any of the modded 7 series cars I have seen to date on this forum.

There are other threads on the Alpina B7 here including:

http://www.7post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=235755

I think the specs you posted are from the 760

The Alpina B7 has 507 hp and 0-100km/h in 4.7 sec according to their website:

I guess it could be an Alpina - but crappy pics are not allowed on this amazing car!

And you are correct sir, the numbers I said earlier are for the 760 - I made a mistake! My bad. I cant get those 760 numbers outta my mind

+1 and +1

I totally agree with you. Crappy pics of awesome cars like the Alpina B7 should not be allowed here

Same on the 760... those are some nice numbers. Now I'm just wondering when the car will go on sale. Someone posted in another thread that they just trailed a 760 test mule in Socal, if that's the case, that means we are probably looking at a couple more month!

why does Alpina never put the sport steering wheel in the B7s

They need to save the customer a penny somewhere so they figured they do it where you can see it EVERY time you get behind the wheel

Just kidding. Don't know but it does seem a bit odd!

doesnt make any sense to me. it was actually one of the reasons my parents didnt want a B7. I guess i inherited my pickieness about steering wheels. Love the wheel in my dads e39 m5 but my all time favorite is the E9x M3 wheel...obviously, i mean look it at.
