Oh I forgot to comment the car.
It's a real beast + a true sleeper,unlike the one on the pic in real they're usually in darker colours , some still with orange turn signals and non-tinted windows , nobody knows the big thumper is under the hood. Awesome.
I'd like to have a wagon to that.

OK since we're there...

Mitsubishi Pajero is called Mitsubishi Montero in some countries among Spain-they say it means masurbator in Spanish slang.

Also Ford Pinto-Pinto is some slang word for ***** in south america...

VW Jetta,Italians know it.
Jetta to them means something like stealing if I recall correctly.
That why it has changed the name to Bora.(sounds much better to me)

Wads: In my opinion there isn't any Alpina in Hungary. I have never ever seen an Alpina in my life. Once a girl slapped me because I spoke about Alpina cars to my friend and the girl thought I'm a pervert.

@ Anon yes I guess they don't sell many Alpinas in Hungary! A bit like the Sega Megadrive games console in Italy..... "Sega" in Italian = wanker

"Limousine? lol"
In Europe limousine means 4 door saloon.
Probably this is the first BMW 3-er with V8 engine.
In Hungarian Alpina sounds very funny because al means lower part of something and pina means ******, so Alpina means "lower part of ******" in Hungarian.
