There's a Alpina B5 with 25k kilometers on the dial at the local dealership. Never had an owner, was a dealer only car. Alpine white, and of course fully loaded. 80k US is the asking price - Is that reasonable?

This is what it looks like (isn't the same car, however). The car has been in the used showroom for over a month. If it sits around longer I may be able to whittle more off if I decide to take the plunge (and can avoid being killed by the wife). There isn't a lot of pricing information I can find for second hand Alpina's.

Take a look at the Alpina website. They have a pre-owned section. They have a few used B5 models which range in price from 49,000 to 68,000 Euros.
Good Luck.

What's the 1st registration date of the car? Assume it's approx. one year old?
You need to look at the list price, to detirmine if it's a good deal.

They put the Alpina badge on the back and keep the BMW on the front, at least - All the brand new ones here in the showroom are like that, and the B5 I'm lusting after.

For those not familiar with the B5...

Supercharged 4.4l V8
HP - 372.9 kw / 500 bhp @ 5500 rpm
Torque - 700 nm / 516.3 ft lbs @ 4250 rpm
0-60 - 4.7 seconds
Top Speed - 314km/h

A snipit from Supercars.net

Quote:
When looking at the horsepower curve, it's clear what one may expect from this engine-bay-filling equipment. At a modest 2,500rpm the driver has 200 horsepower with which to play. At 5,500 rpm, the maximum 500 horsepower is reached, but the fun doesn't stop there, the engine maintains 500 horsepower up to 6,000rpm. The torque curve is even more impressive. At a mere 1,000rpm, just above idle, the V8 puts out 300 Newton metres of torque. Between 4,250rpm and 5,250, there's a constant 700 Newton metres of twist on tap. The engine characteristics, as evidenced by the above numbers, are those of a far larger than those of an equal-sized naturally-aspirated engine.

The B5's powerplant distinguishes itself by instantaneous reactions to throttle inputs, care-free revving up to maximum revs, and a nearly inexhaustible supply of acceleration across the rev range. At full song, the B5 needs but 4.7 seconds to reach 100km/h (Touring: 4.9 seconds), placing it in the fine company of the world's most renowned sports cars

The B5 possesses a ZF six-speed automatic transmission with torque converter, known for its especially smooth shifts and quick response The driver may operate the transmission in Drive mode, letting the automatic do the shifting, or may manually select the gear with two buttons on the back side of the steering wheel. ALPINA developed Switch-Tronic many years ago for just this purpose.
