If it was a manual this probably would not have happened.... That was why I didn't buy an Alpina, that and I could not afford one! Did buy a ZHP and X5 around that time though. 😂

There was a Z8 getting serviced when I picked up my car last week. Such a good looking car. The tech was at the parts counter next to me going over the price of some repalcement parts. Not for the faint of heart!

That is so bad! Feel very sorry for whoever owns it.
The standard Z8 is special but the Alpina variant is on a whole different level!

Damn... I see that car around occasionally...

As a side note I don't think there is a single BMW from my lifetime that has aged as gracefully as the z8. Car still looks incredible when I see them. What a car.

But those people will justify it as "well you didn't hear us before, you can hear us now". Everyone else, it's just mob mentality at this point.

Yea but in the same sense what you said has literally come true because of that same violence. We're on a BMW car forum and talking about what's going on in the nation that was sparked by racial injustices and the different level of aggression people of African descent are given in a heated situation with law enforcement as well. I've been that young African American who looked like he was "up to no good" or dragged out of my car because I look like a "drug dealer/gang banger trying to hide something". Even spent the night in a cell at 17 after being arrested after an officer tampered with my friends legal pocket knife and made it fall under a gravity knife law and the officer could have let me go being I was a passenger and a few blocks away from my home but instead he and his partner were so arrest hungry for someone who looked like me and even lied to my parents about how the entire arrest took place. As a guy who is a fellow Car lover who's been on e46fanatics 10 years ago when I was 17 I've seen it first hand. Even though I'm fortunate and was able to buy myself BMW's that I like I've always notice the problems of my people weren't "everyone's problem". Now the way things are going pretty soon no establishment will be able to say "not my problem". The fact that everyone isn't out saying this is insane how do we fix this says it all! Until EVERYONE as a nation realizes we have a serious problem that has been left to fester too long this will keep happening in different forms.

Not sure how this helps the cause. There are two separate movements right now. 1) Black lives matter and 2) fuck everyone and everything. My life sucks and I blame everyone else for it.

Destroy your cities and communities and see how it changes your life for the better.

What happened to shoot looters on sight? I believe in peaceful protest. Looters and vandals are a different breed.

I donít buy that for a second. There is a lot of overlap, and plenty of BLM members have been documented advocating for violence and/or unrest.

Signs like that are ozing with irony because here in NYC, I've seen more "white" people protesting than blacks.

A Gt3 on the streets of Beverly Hills i believe was torched and burned down. I think it was just parked there before the rioters came looting and destroying.

If you want to do protest, do not destroy other local businesses, shops. Especially those ones who have been affected and holding on because of corona

moreover protest and stealing is very different thing.

Stealing somebody else property for any reason is wrong !

Your voice might be heard now, but both side is wrong if it must be heard this way

Yea, a new Dodge Demon and SRT8 truck in the video but I have a about 10 different links with various Mercedes GT and Porsche 718 also stolen or burned.

It's like the Grand Theft Auto game, personified.

2020 is not a movie but a full Netflix series..
