Nice pics! Yes Singapore is a highly advanced country - but damn it sucks for car lovers. Unless you're stinkin' rich, then all is good wherever I suppose...

This is nice, at first I thought there's a glitch with the music or something lol. Cars in Thailand is incredibly expensive !! A base 420i is like 130k USD in Thailand...

Are these Alpina rims? They look amazing. Would they fit an M2?

I doubt that. The Alpina wheels from a 3 series are 8x19, ET 36 front and 9x19, ET 47 rear. You would need spacers to compensate the high ET of Alpina┤s wheels and they are anyway too narrow comparing to OEM M2 wheels (8" vs 9" front and 9" vs 10" rear).
