    For sure I haven't seen one for that price in a while regardless of the mileage.
    Hope you'll get it. Good for me.

    RM auto auctions sold one at auction with 8k miles for $143,000 not including their 5% fee. This was on 6/19/10. Keep up with the market bud.

    FYI that car, a non-Alpina Z8, had 51 (!) miles and will most likely never get more than that. It was discussed in great length on this forum.

    Actually, the all black 2003 non alpina car sold for $130,000 plus a 10% buyers fee. It had 55 miles on it. The silver/black 2002 with 110 miles sold for $110,000 plus a 10% buyers fee. I agree with Dirk that whomever bought these cars will never drive them. I hope you get it too, but buyers are tightening their purse strings again, this time even tighter. I have been in the car business for 35 years and I have never seen things as slow as they are now.

    Agree.

    As much as we all love our cars to appreciate in value, in the short run, the arrow is pointing down.

    Yes, and we're still at the top of the mountain too, sadly all the predictors say the long painful slope of deflation is only just beginning.

    And auctions can be an outlier of a data point....

    There is a gorgeous black/red Z8 Alpina for sale at Crevier Classic Cars in Costa Mesa, Ca. They are asking $144,900, but they said they would take $130,000 and I think there is even more room to go. It has 6,700 miles on it and is represented as a perfect original car. I am tempted myself, and I have always been a Z8 must have the M engine and a six speed kind of guy, but this car sure is pretty!!! Got the money, just don't want to spend it.

    Marty, you should really go drive it, the Alpina has such a wonderful demeanor as a roadster. It rides smoother yet handles better, and knowing how you like to drive I really think you'd enjoy it a lot, plus it is very rare in that combo, it's an '03 and the color you really want. On any drive it gives nothing away to the Z8 in terms of performance, all you're loosing is the clutch and gears.

    I know. My turbo is a tiptronic and I love driving it. If it doesn't sell I may go take a look at it next week. Before I bought my first Z8 in 2005, I was only looking for an Alpina. I am afraid if I go look at it I will be bringing it home with me. The upside is I have never belonged to a club with a nicer bunch of people and I could go on some great drives again.

    Totally go for it. And, if you do, and don't mind me around, give me a heads up and I'll meet up with you for the extra on-sight motivation

    We'll let you drive with us anytime, but if you don't have a Z8 perhaps you could drive a nice big support vehicle!

    The pictures on their web look fantastic. The combination of the Alpina wheels, black with the red on the interior is very unique and powerful. Too bad they installed the front license plate on the otherwise perfect car.

    Looks like they already have a deal on the car. Apparently a dealer bought it so they either have a customer waiting for it or they feel as though they can sell it for more than they paid, which was $130,000.

    It is interesting how there is so much market activity at the dealer level.

    The deal fell through and the Black/Red Alpina is back on the market. It can be bought for $130,000, but so far, no takers. As tempted as I am, I still feel the economic storm heading towards us and I am not spending anything on any big ticket items, especially $130,000 cars that sit in the garage 98% of the time. I believe once deflation sets in, and it will starting this fall, prices on many things are going to drop, especially expensive used cars. I am in the business as most of you know and everyone I talk to, and I mean everyone, says this year is the slowest business has ever been for them. On a brighter note, BMW AG sales were up close to 10% in July, so at least there is some good news.

    Congratulations indeed. Interesting though, Alpinas have not been officially sold in France because the folks from Buchloe could never deal with the French regulations and bureaucracy. I wish the new owner the best of luck with importing a US registered, German-built car in France. That is of course once the ports open up again.
