Alpina Rear Strut brace

Post by TopCat » Mon Jun 13, 2011 6:39 pm

Dear All
Does anyone know whether such a things exists for the E21?

It would be a handy improvement, but pretty bespoke (to clear the extra fuel tank)

Grateful for any feedback/info here please

Never seen an alpina rear strut brace (except int he boot of the "white" Alpina), but there are few aftermatket ones.

Also you want to get teh Z/28 over to knockhill for a race in the classics series

There's not one listed on the old TWR / Alpina parts list either.

Thanks Jason
I have asked your guys if the strut brace will fit around the Alpina Fuel tank- will revert

Many thanks for info on SMRC championship- Butch looks eligible - although bound to be slow as we have never done Knockhill before!

Also doesn't have an MOT anymore (no handbrake) !

They say that it will fit around the Alpina Fuel tank - so have bought one

I have been told that these guys know what they are doing having gone around the world buying up all NOS Alpina and Classic BMW stuff for their stores

Ex Merchant bankers apparently!!

They have now got a viable business!
