Without Vat it's 2007 Euro or ~ $2630 USD, which is less than I expected. They have a 3 series B3 Bi-Turbo convertible, coupe & wagon Alpina on the floor. I took a couple crappy cell phone pics of the Silver & Black wheels on them & will post later - Took a couple of pics of the Black 7 series wheels also.

Found out BBS makes the wheels for Alpina. It's stamped inside the hub.
Thanks so much Moxie for your help and effort it is very much appreciated.

I am sure that with spacers and extended wheel studs fitting the wheels on my M3 is doable. I have my dealership here in Canada working on it as well. It should be interesting what there mark up will be to bring the wheels to Canada, I am also surprised of the low cost, I am sure the price will increase after import tax and duties as well as shipping costs from Germany.

Thanks again and I am looking forward for the photos

Take good care & Cheers

Re: BBS, I know that BBS Kraftfahrzeugtechnik AG is a high performance automobile wheel design company headquartered in Schiltach, Germany, so it makes sense for Alpina to use them as a wheel supplier since they are near by.
