The Alpina car from BAT looks fabulous, but it also demonstrates that the only cars that have a considerable value, are the fully original examples as this is what investors want in that price range. No matter how well done, this one of course is not. On the other hand, it is only a matter of time before this will be paid, values are on the increase as you can also see on the Oldenzaal 323i. And for a restoration of that quality, I don't think you can have things done to that level of detail for much less these days. Try ordering some chrome trim from the dealer and let me know how much just that set you back! So, for owners it is a good thing values are up, but for potential buyers it may require a re adjustment of values.
