Too bad it would still be another half baked BMW side project.

It was not the best built BMW. Being as I have never driven it, I can't really comment, but reviewers have said it does not handle like a BMW should.

Agreed, I haven't driven one either. I looked for used ones for a period of time, but finally realized that it isn't a 400 pound lighter E39 M5, it's just a cruiser with lots of problems. Pity, the style is great, but I wish it was built as a solid performer, not just a styling exercise.

The Top Gear review of the Alpina was pretty funny:
