went to a dark side completely!

Just to share my experience with you guys , I know some of you have same mind as I'm .
So first is I thought I'll have my hellcat modded and keep it at respectful lvl 800-850 rwhp but my good friend made me to get in to bmw world I couldn't decline the offer so now I have alpina B7 with 13000 miles on the clock






Alpina is amazing , well .. I know it's more pricy than E class and even rs7 but I have no other car in my hands . I have it only for couple days but I like it a lot , more than E ? Absolutely yes . cost of maintenance probably crazy , depreciation is bad (bad as benz) but in terms of cruiser B7 is awesome .
1 thing is not there - sound , and second is ugly steering wheel . the rest is equal or better than E . cant tell about reliability yet . millage is the same .
Hellcat - wild wild ***** and I like it that way .
BTW stock HC result


This is in KPH
sound
so I'm all set for now

Alpina's are head turners for sure. Not the fastest 7, but plenty quick for what it is. I'm surprised that the 7 doesn't look any bigger than the HC. Almost looks like the HC is even wider.

Alpina mods those cars very nicely. I always walk very slowly past those in the parking lots. This is w/o the x-drive, right? I'm guessing you prefer this over your old E63 in large part to that? I wonder if the W213 will offer more of the feel you like in the B7.

I do wish the US had the RS6 Avant option... would be nice to have choices, but take what you can get (for wagons).

Enjoy.

I had 3 BMW's , Definitely my favorite car brand , I didn't try AUDI yet was thinking about it , If the M5 was AWD I would be all over it , and I think it's coming in the near future

I didn't know Audi made a stick for the RS... The last stick they made I was aware of was the 2005 4.2 V8 Allroad.

I miss my old 6MT.
