AMAZING Sighting!!

You guys won't believe what i ran into today when i drove into my work parking lot. Parking where i always do i look and see an e34. i get closer and its an Alpina B10!!!!!!! UN-F@#$in real guy had BC plates on it and said he had bought it about 2 weeks ago and said it was the only one in N america to the best of his knowledge!!! Said he is a local member in Canada for bmw and goes on some drives as well. i'm really hoping to run into this guy again. he said the car is just amazing to drive and it looks so sleek and clean with just a hint at the monster under the hood!!!
i got some lame little pics on my camera phone and i'm kicking myself in the ass for not grabbing the digital on my way out the door today

http://home.swipnet.se/~w-19495/biturbo.htm

just some info for those of you (should be no one here) that are unfamiliar with the alpina name or this particular model.

360hp stock and easily "chipped" to 440!!
the one i saw was a charcoal blueish color

Wait wait, take another hit and holder longer this time, maybe he'll trip a little more and tell you that it can fly.

He is from BC then, as in Brittish Columbia, right? Did he also say where in BC he is from, like Vancouver, or Vancouver Island (Victoria)? Cause if he is from Victoria i could head down to the BMW club and get some good pictures!!
