I would probably go for Alpina, because it's more exotic.

...They look the same.....

E46 of course - apples with apples.

I would probably go for Alpina, because it's more exotic.

But I would have to look at what modifications Alpina have done to the E46 coupe, before I could make a real decision.

No wonder Romans couldn't conquer the Germanic tribes, if the Germanic barbarians have such things. :D

LOL, 202, looks awfully modern for it being so ancient. They didn't have photographs back then, so I guess these pictures are cave paintings. :D

So here the first produced vehicle with internal-combustion engine - Alpina B3S. German barbarians would get schocked. They'd burnt it at fire, thinking that's a satin creature. LOL

Lovely car.
