Looking good!

You're the first person in 8 weeks who I've heard say they don't have enough free time.

Home owner with a three year old and a wife that's 8.5 months pregnant = no free time! LOL! Work has been mostly normal for me.

Wow, a toddler and another one on the way. You'll have your hands full.

I'll bet the Alpina takes as much work as a toddler!

Had a nice little summer road trip in the car. I didn't take many photos, but I got these at the Hope slide.





I love taking long trips in this car. Any time I come up to any slower traffic it's so effortless to get past. I definitely need to get a few things done before any more long trips though. The tires are getting too old, and I think I need to do the front control arms, so I might as well do the inner and outer tie rods as well. Bummer to pay for shipping and taxes on parts like these with the US border being closed these days

The only issue on the trip was this terrible noise that would come from the rear of the car on occasion. Oh, wait...that was this guy in the back seat!

Great pics!
Are you getting your parts from KSK?

Luckily, the only Alpina specific part i've had to buy is the front brake pads, and I didn't go through KSK for that. A member here @testdriver helped me to get them directly from Alpina in Germany.

I do need a little plastic support for the engine cover that is Alpina specifc, but I haven't been able to get a hold of @testdriver. It's not urgent, so I haven't asked KSK about it.
