Build Your Own ALPINA B7 Live

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Fully loaded: $162,195 MSRP

Tinted, de-badged, black grilles, de-chromed, lightly smoked rear lamps, painted front bumper reflectors.

Wheel and Tire Protection Plan a must.

Mileage range of M760i will be worse; non-V12 M7 needed already!

Anyone know if ALPINA fixed the videogame-like steering of the G12?

Should I?

Looks better than the MSport standard version. I've always liked what Alpina does to upgrade the standard series cars.

I have no need for something this big, but if you're in the market, go for it. I personally wouldn't be interested in the 750 or M760, leaving this the only option. Plus, Alpina.

Yes do it. I wish Alpina also offered the B3 and the B5 in the US.

I'm a BMW fan through and through, but for this price a loaded 2017 Panamera Turbo would be my choice. The new Panamera is way better looking than the current model and now named the fastest 4-door to lap the Nurburgring. Plus, the transformer wing alone is worth the money.

Yes. In 20 years this thing will appreciate in value if you keep it in one piece.

Wait 2 years and buy a used one for half the money. These things hold their value like shit. Great value if you can get low mileage a few years old.

Yeah but.... Good point but in two years' time something better will have come along. Like most cars not an investment but hopefully a reward given to oneself for one's accomplishments. YMMV!

Took a long time for them to get back to me, but BMW answered some questions of mine

Hilarious they make reference to the "Hockey Stick"!

Response as follows:

Thanks for contacting the BMW regarding the ALPINA B7 and our apologies for the delay.

The ALPINA B7 only offers a chrome accent on the air breather ("Hockey Stick") on the side of the vehicle. This chrome accent is specific to the ALPINA brand.

The 2017 BMW M760i xDrive will be available in early 2017. We hope to have ordering information through your local BMW Center at the end of 2016. Please reach out to your local dealer for additional information.

The 2017 BMW 7 Series may be able to have Citrin Black paint added to the vehicle through the BMW INDIVIDUAL program. We do not have information regarding pricing or availability within our team. Please work with the sales manager at your local dealer for special order information.
