    Well the search for my perfect and very highly specced M4 did not last very long...as soon as Ian (Alpina) offered me his pristine and lovingly cared for M4, I knew the deal had to be done!
    Ian is simply too knowledgeable and well respected and the modifications (surround view, LCI lights, and Idrive6 etc) too perfectly integrated to ignore his car.
    Ian is the absolute guru on the M3/4 so, I had no reservations about buying his car, and with only 15,000 miles on a December 2014 car, it was a no brainer.
    So, seeing as I turned 53 this weekend, it seemed the perfect birthday present to myself!
    More pics to follow...as I write this, I've yet to drive it home, after collection, but loving it, after seven years in an E92 M3!
    More pics to follow when I get the chance...
    Thanks Ian! :thumbsup:

    Sonny,

    Many congratulations my friend. You really do have a stunner there, I've personally seen this car a few times and had the pleasure of sitting in it and seeing the upgraded tech mods working. You made the right choice and can't go wrong having bought it from Ian. Well done and enjoy the new toy! :thumbsup:

    Congrats mate.

    You've bought a stunning car from a Cutters legend. :thumbsup:

    PS... I used to have that exact same keying, til the bloody thing broke!

    Knowing what little I do of Ian I reckon this is a better and safer buy than an AUC!!!

    Congratulations Sonny and Happy Belated Birthday to you

    Well done Sonny! Must be reassuring buying from another very well respected fellow cutter. When the time comes I shall be offering mine on here first.

    Any plans for some mods? Front splitter maybe?

    Nice car mate and nice to see a pleasant transaction from another cutter.

    I do have to say that the photo listed in slightly cringe-worthy though
