Actually, once they fill in the washer holes with the nozzles/tops and actually paint the front to match, I think the front will look ok. These types of pictures as I've come to learn, don't do any car justice; you just have to see them in person IMO.
Alpina isn't all about body mods. It is truely a tuner with a huge history behind it with BMW. I'd love to see these two tuners go head-to-head in some R&T article or European Car . Of course they'd have to throw in the other big tuners too like Hamman but it would be a cool article. (Unless I missed it becuase I have NOT read the last 6 months of European Car).
